It seems that we have been really bad at updating our homepage for the past half year or so. So it is about time that we remedy this.

In February we announced that Simon Buje (Death to Seattle, ex-All Trays For Venom) had replaced James Atkin on bass. Simon played his first show with us at Heavy Agger on Jutland’s west coast in May. He has since played a couple of other shows with us and has been well received by our fans both here in Denmark and at our show at Metalfest Open Air (CZ) 2018.

A handful of shows for this summer (of which we have already played some) has been announced. They can be seen on this video:

A couple of shows have been booked for the end of the year and will be announced at some time.

We have also just released a second video diary of life on the road with Svartsot, that can be seen here:

And finally, we have found a small number of the CDs “Mulmets Viser” and “maledictus eris” at the back of a cupboard. They are the last ever completely new copies of these albums in existence, since our previous label has discontinued them. So we’ve put these up for sale on our webstore, http://shop.svartsot.dk/, which can be reached from the link on the right side of this page.

So now it is time to kick back with a cold beer and some folk metal and to enjoy the summer!

James Atkin leaves Svartsot

As of last week, James Atkin chose to part ways with the ‘Sot, to seek new horizons with his other band Heidra and due to some internal differences.

Of course it saddens us it has to be this way, but it’s probably for the best either way.

James has been a solid backbone in the Svartsot line-up since 2009 and we thank him sincerely for his service these past almost 9 years and wish him luck in his bastardly future, of heavy baldiness and rocking away.

Svartsot sign booking agreement with Tråd Music Management and Booking

After a shorter period without a full time booker for Denmark, Svartsot have now signed an agreement with the Copenhagen-based booking agency Tråd Music Management and Booking for concerts in Denmark. Tråd is a relatively new booking agency that already boasts a roster of some promising Danish acts – including Grusom and Bersærk, who both performed at this year’s Copenhell festival in Copenhagen, and Impalers, who feature our good friend Kenneth Frandsen (ex-Illnath) on bass. See the full roster here.

Svartsot are looking forward to what promises to be a fruitful partnership with Tråd.

Svartsot at Motocultor Festival 2016

Last year (in our tenth anniversary year) we played our first ever shows in France at the Cernunnos Pagan Festival in Paris. At the end of the year we toured with Arkona and Metsatöll and played a further 5 shows in France. We received an excellent welcome from the French audiences at all of the shows. We are therefore really excited to be returning to France later this month to play at the Motocultor Festival 2016! Svartsot’s show is on Sunday the 21st when our good friends Arkona will also be playing, but make sure to buy a ticket for the whole weekend – our other good friends Dalriada will be playing on Saturday…
