NEWS: Ondfødt seek “Where Death Roams”?

Featuring guest vocals from Mathias “Vreth” Lillmåns of Finntroll fame Black Lion Records have unveiled “Where Death Roams” as the first taste of a new, fourth album “Det Österbottniska Mörkret” (or “The Ostrobothnian Darkness”) from Finnish Black Metallers Ondfødt. Set for 26th May it also features a guest appearance from Jacob Björnfot of Kvaen and is inspired by a region in Western Finland where the band was founded in 2013, sharing the dark folk tales they have embraced since childhood. Pre-orders are available here.

The band comments: “This album is about exploring the darkest side of Ostrobothnia, both lyrically and sonically. If you are from Ostrobothnia you will understand the endless darkness during winter when the sun is barely going above the horizon. You will also understand the dark history of the witch hunt in this part of Finnish history. “Det Österbottniska Mörkret” is about all of that and going even deeper to the roots of all the evil spirits that live in the area. This album’s focus is to take you through the dark history of murders and the darkest side of people driven by religion. And as well as the urban legends of the spirits and the evil creations that live in the endless forests of Ostrobothnia. And finally, the record takes you through death itself, for example, in the song “Dödsrejson”. ‘You feel the life is slowly fading, everything turns cold, You close your eyes and let go, soon you’ll be home again’.”
