VATTNET VISKAR To Release 'Sky Swallower' In September

After releasing a self-titled EP last year to critical acclaim, New Hampshire's VATTNET VISKAR is now ready to unleash its debut full-length album, "Sky Swallower", this fall via Century Media Records. Due out September 9 in Europe, the CD was recorded at Universal Noise Storage with producer Brett Boland and features eight tracks of crushingly ambient, blackened doom metal.

Hailing from the small town of Plaistow, VATTNET VISKAR is anything but small. Formed in the fall of 2010, the band has quickly risen amongst the ranks of U.S. black metal acts with the aforementioned EP, which was named one of the best metal albums of 2012 by Pitchfork.com, Stereogum.com, and countless others. Not content to keep their blackened-doom alchemy confined to the studio, however, they back it up with a thundering live performance. Having already shared the stage with such titans as BLACK ANVIL, INQUISITION and WOODS OF YPRES, they have left their mark throughout the U.S. with a seemingly endless string of shows, including a stop at last year's SXSW festival, playing three shows throughout the event.
