The band just announced they were going to release a new album called "Revelations of the Red Sword" on december's 3rd. I am a huge fan of Flesh Cathedral. Svartidauði was pretty much the band that got me into the great icelandic black metal scene. Just heard the song and got hooked, it's super intense and very memorable, when I finished listening to it i had to repeat it several times because I got so hooked. Also, I really loved that album art:

Track list:

1. Sol Ascending
2. Burning Worlds of Excrement
3. The Howling Cynocephali
4. Wolves of a Red Sun
5. Reveries of Conflagration
6. Aureum Lux

The song is pretty cool, the middle section reminds me of Misþyrming. Catchy and very effective. Not a great fan of the cover though, most of the artwork shown on the video is a lot cooler than this wolf/dog/Anubis figure (the song titles suggest it's either a wolf, a cynocephali or both). The cover for Flesh Cathedral was a lot cooler.

I've heard a couple more new songs live and they were great too. I'm pretty hyped to be honest.

Ha ha, you got that right! In the meantime there's also a new Devouring Star album coming out, and though I found Antihedron to be a bit off the new songs are alright I guess. Lots of good stuff coming out this year.

New song smokes, really great stuff. I'm just weary of them making a 6 song/47 minute album since that'll imply shorter songs all around. I hope they let them breathe more like on the debut, but if they pack as much punch as the ones on the Synthesis EP then I can't really complain.

New Sinmara is finished too. I doubt it will be out before 2019 but who knows.

The BangerTV - All Metal youtube channel uploaded what it may be their only video that matters, one dedicated to the icelandic black metal scene. Some great bands where mentioned, I found out Potentiam and Wormlust thanks to that video. Both are amazing bands. And of course they mentioned Svartidauði.

I just wished those guys didn't tried so hard to be funny. Their content/thougths are actually not bad (except for Sam Dunn). And I think is awesome those kind of channels exist no matter if they might be a bit cringy or not.

They have a lot of cool bands tbh:

Svartidaudi
Sinmara
Misthyrming
Nadra
Örmagna
Wormlust
Ljain
Almyrkvi
Abominor
Carpe noctem
Zhrine
Andavald

Most of the band members of both bands are from the Icelandic scene but the composers of both bands are Irish:
Rebirth of Nefast
Slidhr

(There are more bands but I think these are the best).

Flesh Cathedral is a 100%er imho and that single's on par with any tune off of it...what riffs! looking forward to listening this fully. dig the scratchy lead guitar tones.

There are some bands on your list that I'm not familiar with, time to correct that! :D

I like it. Really great melodies and atmosphere. It's not Flesh Cathedral but I wasn't expecting it to be. Not as dissonant as people are claiming it is though.

Holly cow is this good, from the very 1st minute into the album i felt it was going to be something special and what came after didn't disappoint,

that has to be one of the best ways to start an album ever
