American metallers The Flight of Sleipnir are are very pleased to announce that their new album titled “Skadi” will be released on January 20th, 2017 through Eisenwald Records. Following on the heels of the 2014 album “V”, the 6th full length “Skadi” shows the Colorado individualists more focused and settled. Taking inspiration from earlier recordings, which work as the creative drive, they forge their trademark sounds ahead once again in Nordic spiked splendour wrapped in a new life-form. ”Skadi” creates another extraordinary venture, full of extreme metal and polarizing tension. There is a certain fresh simplicity in structure, though the further you delve in, the more complex and soaring it becomes. From pulsing waves of doom & stoner, decorative rock and prog to expanding glances into folk spiked with black metal-esque sparks. Whether you consume it at an intimate campfire or throughout stormy evenings, with ”Skadi” they have created one of their most passionate and artistic recordings to date.
“Skadi” was recorded during 2016 and then mixed / mastered by Clayton Cushman. It features the striking artwork courtesy of the band’s own David Csicsely, that once again becomes a crucial force in The Flight of Sleipnir’s artistic appeal. The band has already revealed new song “Awaken” that you can check out below. “Skadi” is available for pre-order in Eisenwald Records official Bandcamp page in the following formats:
