At present, HELLEVAERDER and ZWAERTGEVEGT are thrilled to announce the debut album by the Dutch black metallers of HELLEVAERDER called ‘IN DE NEVEL VAN AFGUNST’, and shall be released on June 1st, 2022 on the following formats: CD / DIGITAL / MC / LP. A preview of the album can now be streamed at Black Metal Promotion.
The first full-length release by Dutch black metal formation Hellevaerder lures you into foreboding depths with seven pitch black tracks. During those we will give you a look through our vision of darkness. We will drag you down into the deepest parts of our mind, body and soul and let the darkness devour you.
Hellevaerder, founded in 2017, started as an idea to make black metal sung in Dutch. After some searching and fiddling with the line-up, the first release ‘Langs eindeloze paden’ saw the light in 2018. After this release, Hellevaerder got a taste for it which resulted in the single ‘Gehekeld door een ieder’, and was released in early 2019. After a change in the line-up, the single ‘Krijgers’ was released at the end of the same year.
After two difficult Covid-years, the band has finished their first full-length. ‘In de nevel van afgunst’ brings you seven tracks that pull you into the depths. With a new stage image, the band will bring a dark ritual live and take you on a journey.
You are worthless, death is liberating.
Celebrate life, Worship death
