SORT SIND stream debut

Danish black metallers Sort Sind stream the entirety of their highly anticipated debut album, I Skyggen af Livet, at the Black Metal Promotion YouTube channel. Set for international release on November 24th via Nuclear Winter Records on CD format – the vinyl LP version will be co-released with Desiccated Productions – hear Sort Sind’s I Skyggen af Livet in its entirety exclusively here: Sort Sind – I Skyggen af Livet (Full Album Premiere) – YouTube

Denmark’s Sort Sind were born out of the ashes of sulfuric might in 2020, into a darkness of corrosion of the mind, with the members currently hailing from the likes of Ascendency, Had, Sulphurous, and Taphos (and formerly of Phrenelith). Soon, the duo released a two-song demo, portending grave deeds on the horizon…

At least, that horizon looms with I Skyggen af Livet, Sort Sind’s debut full-length. A new dark chapter, the album consists of eight songs in a swift 32 minutes. Sort Sind’s surging & slipstreaming attack is far more epic than those compact runtimes suggest; with shadows swirling through the maze of their twisted minds, the duo construct muscular, deathened black metal that reminds of the late ’90s vanguard whilst emitting a freshness of approach. Put another way, I Skyggen af Livet has few modern analogues: Sort Sind are their own entity of vengeful, grim misery. No matter what genre boundaries one places around it, the duo’s debut album unshackles itself and takes the listener on a journey downward through the spiral of madness, revealing new layers of dementia the more that listener submits to their coming of chaos. Classic black/death songcraft, then, but suffused with restless, red-eyed energy – I Skyggen af Livet is only the beginning of Sort Sind. This is black metal darkness!
