NAGLFAR to re-sign with Century Media Records, announce new album “Cerecloth” out May 8th, 2020!
It has been a long eight year stretch between releases for Umeå, Sweden’s black metal nihilists NAGLFAR, but despite the eight year wait, the band hasn’t been resting on their laurels. Like any slumbering beast, NAGLFAR have returned from their respite ferocious and hungry with their seventh full length album “Cerecloth” which is due for a worldwide release on May 8th, 2020. Recorded and mixed by NAGLFAR guitarist Marcus Norman at Wolf’s Lair Studio, and mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound, the underlying musical and lyrical themes of “Cerecloth” were succinctly and confidently described by guitarist Andreas Nilsson: “The usual death and destruction.”
Judging from Andreas’ curt description, and the grim, ghostly cover art from the renowned artist Kristian Wåhlin and layout by Seiya Ogino of Ogino Design certain death is exactly what “Cerecloth” holds within.
Philipp Schulte, Director, comments: „NAGLFAR and Century Media have a long history and a close bond. Since 2003 and with the release of the album “Sheol” the band and the label have worked together. We are very happy to continue this great cooperation for future album releases. The time has come: With ‘Cerecloth’ NAGLFAR finally returns! We are stoked to release this beast of a real melodic black metal album from the far North of Sweden. Thank you, guys, for your trust throughout all these years. Stand as one for battles to come.”
NAGLFAR about re-signing: "There were never any doubts when approached by the Century Media family about extending our cooperation. One can't ask for a better label and we look forward to unleash ‘Cerecloth’ upon the world."
