We can now reveal that we will be entering the studio this month to start recording our fourth album. The album, which is as yet untitled, will contain 8 tracks of our finest work so far. Recording will continue into the start of the New Year, and we’ll try to keep progress posts updated. We’re expecting the album to be released sometime around mid-year 2014, but we have already had the chance to show case some of the new material at shows here in Denmark. We will, of course, also be playing new songs at the show in York, UK, in February. So if you’re in the UK and haven’t got your ticket yet, then we suggested you award yourself a Christmas present and buy one here:
We’re pleased to be able to announce that we will be appearing in the UK for the first time ever. The show will take place on Saturday February 22nd at Fibbers in York. The show organisers have released the following statement:
“Join us once more for another night of Viking and folk mayhem at Fibbers in York on Saturday 22nd February 2014 courtesy of Asgard.
The 3rd annual Jorvik Viking Festival fringe event brings with it another European band who have never headlined the UK before.
For this next show, we have managed to lure Danish folk metal titans Svartsot out of their homeland to not just headline, but to also play their first ever UK gig! This is a performance that is not to be missed.
Support comes in the form of Darlington’s Old Corpse Road. The band name and a lot of their lyrics draw heavily on British folklore. This, combined with their black metal leanings creates a unique and haunting sound.
Our opening band will be announced shortly.
Tickets, priced £10 will be on sale very soon from asgardonline.co.uk, the venue and the usual outlets.”
We look forward to seeing as many of our British fans as the venue can hold!
As promised in recent news, the Svartsot webstore is now up and running. Use the toggle on the menu bar here on the homepage to go to the shop.
We are proud to be able to announce that we will be visiting Hungary again for the first time since 2008. This time we will be appearing at the Rockmaraton Festival in Pécs on the 26th of June 2013. Additional info can be found in our shows section or by visiting the festival’s homepage here: http://www.rockmaraton.hu/
In other news, we will soon be able to officially introduce the new range of merch available exclusively from Svartsot. Links to our brand new webshop and info on how to order the merch will be posted as soon as everything is in place.
