BERSÆRK announce new album ‘SOL’ and pandemic regulated album shows

Pagan Danish heavy rockers BERSÆRK have gone from victory to victory since the beginning of their raid in 2012. The band has won over the Danish metal and rock audiences with its unique natively tongued heavy rock as an invincible live unit selling out venues and filling festival grounds on Danish soil. Now, the band is ready with their third album entitled ‘SOL’ – an epic record showing new sides to the band while describing humanity’s struggle through war, death and decay to finally achieve rebirth and victory.

In connection with the release of ‘SOL’, BERSÆRK can also announce four album shows in Denmark’s biggest cities in the course of October and November. The shows take the local guidelines for COVID-19 into account and are therefore seated concerts with a limited amount of tickets available and now in sale HERE – the dates are:
27.10.20 – Bremen Teater, Copenhagen (DK)
31.10.20 – Tapperiet, Koege (DK)
11.11.20 – Musikhuset, Aarhus (DK)
13.11.20 – Posten, Odense (DK)

Besides the album shows, BERSÆRK is support for Danish rock legends Dizzy Mizz Lizzy on their upcoming Danish arena tour – the dates are:

07.11.20 – København, Royal Arena (m. Dizzy Mizz Lizzy & Psyched Up Janis)
11.11.20 – Aalborg Kongres & Kultur Center (m. Dizzy Mizz Lizzy & Psyched Up Janis)
20.11.20 – Odense, Jyske Bank Arena (m. Dizzy Mizz Lizzy & Psyched Up Janis)
21.11.20 – Aarhus, Ceres Arena (m. Dizzy Mizz Lizzy & Psyched Up Janis)
12.12.20 – Næstved, Arena Næstved (m. Dizzy Mizz Lizzy & Psyched Up Janis)

The ten new songs roam within the mythic world of BERSÆRK, where the ancient Nordic past is brought to life in a contemporary context, energetically conveyed by the band’s grooving melodic stoner heavy rock and versatile talent for songwriting. ‘SOL’ is an ambitious work carrying larger contrast than prior releases expanding on the band’s musical and lyrical ambition, while still being a BERSÆRK-record in all its straightforward and energetic earthliness. This development has been evident on the two ferocious singles ‘Balders Bål’ and ‘Blod og Stål’ and their videos, which can be seen HERE.

Past and present are united in the album’s lyrical vision, which during the writing process took a conceptual turn and morphed into an old norse, shamanic journey through a post-apocalyptic contemporary scenery. On ‘SOL’, BERSÆRK carries the ancient values, but there is no doubt that we are situated in 2020 in regards to both lyrics and the music’s more modern edge. The record’s general theme is the journey through death and destruction and decay to rebirth and victory, and the band binds together these subjects to a complete album experience, where the conclusions remain open for the listener, once the music has faded.

BERSÆRK will release ‘SOL’ October 23rd 2020 on LP/CD/Digital through Nordenvind Musikproduktion. The record is produced by the band themselves, mastered by Brian Mørck Hansen and the visual concept and artwork is created in cooperation with the artist Ræveðis.
