After four years of silence, the Arctic black-metallers Iskald finally return to the battlefield with more fierce and power than ever before! Iskald will release their fifth studio album titled "Innhøstinga" (Norwegian: ‘the Harvest’) on August 31!

Innhøstinga: There have been some rumors about something new and wicked brewing along the shores of the north. And right as winter strikes in late 2017, Iskald concludes their long-awaited sequel to their 2014 release ‘Nedom Og Nord'. It's been almost four years since they drew you into a realm of cold, atmospheric and highly acclaimed black metal with their fourth release on Indie Recordings.

 

Now they finally return to the battlefield with more fierce and power than ever before. It's time to harvest all your crops and embark towards the oncoming storm which unfolds with ‘Innhøstinga'. Iskald continues their art of cold, intense, yet melodic black metal. At the same time, their complexity and genius in the songwriting shine on even more that before.

A new producer was brought along to make the album sound the way they intended. ‘Innhøstinga' (Norwegian: ‘the Harvest') might be their most complex album to date, containing nine songs divided into 50 minutes of playtime. The songs are diverse and different in their own way, while the lyrics bind them together as a whole.

This is their second album with a Norwegian title, in which half of the lyrics are sung on their mother-tongue. ‘Lysene som Forsvant' might just be their most melancholy epos to date, telling the story about those they have lost on their way.

The band has commented:"Finally the day has come and with great pride we will raise our glasses and present "Innhøstinga" to you, our first album in over 4 years. Thanks for waiting, and thanks for your passion and dedication. We promise it was worth the wait. Enjoy our new single and music video dropping soon, while bracing for the harvest to come...As you sow so shall you reap!"
