Album update

As many of our fans and followers will know, our (now long awaited) fourth album is complete and waiting to be unleashed.

As an early Christmas gift, we can now reveal that news of the release will be issued next month. Until then, we would like thank all of our fans for their patience by issuing one of the promotional photos, taken on location at Jels Vikingeby by the Danish photographer, Kasper Fladmose.

Show dates announced for 2015

We can now announce that we will be appearing at two folk metal festivals in 2015: Cernunnos Festival in Paris, France on the 22nd of February and Hörnerfest in Brande-Hörnerkirchen, Germany on the 3rd of July. The Cernunnos Festival appearance will be our first ever visit to France, so we’re really looking forward to that. And it will likewise be an honour for us to appear at North Germany’s foremost folk metal festival in the summer. See you all there!

Svartsot removed from Spotify (again)

As many of our fans on Facebook have informed us, our first three albums have been removed from Spotify. Some of our fans may remember that Napalm Records removed their entire roster from Spotify in September 2011, at that time stating the reason as thus: “…the income generated through streaming is so insignificant that neither we, as a record company, nor our artists are able to further support this method of distribution”. Whatever their reason this time, it appears that Napalm Records has once again decided to remove their roster from Spotify. Svartsot can only state that we have not been instrumental in the removal of our material from the site, neither in 2011 or now.

Any fans who wish to purchase our previous albums can still do so directly from the official Svartsot online merch store. We still have a small number of the album Ravnenes Saga available (now sold out on Napalm Records’ own online store) as well Mulmets Viser (ltd. ed. digipak version) and maledictus eris.

Many fans have also asked about the release of our fourth album. We are unfortunately still not in a position to announce any release dates, as the release process has been delayed due to several incidents that have been beyond our control. The album is recorded, mixed and mastered, the photography has been completed and the cover and layout are more or less finished. We sincerely hope to be able to make an official announcement about the release within the very near future. We are, however, pretty sure that the new album will be available on Spotify upon release.
