Icelandic black metal newcomers Helfró are now premiering the new song Ávöxtur Af Rotnu Tré, which is the third single from their self-titled debut album.
“With great anticipation for the release of our debut album, we proudly present our third single,” the band says.
Slithering in the cauldron that is the Icelandic black metal scene, Helfró emerges with fury.
Written by Ragnar and arranged by Símon, a debut album has been recorded.
It is meant to channel the hopeless and empty feelings that have been concentrated from the frozen wastelands from which the band emerges.
Shrilling guitarwork and unforgiving blast beats weave together a soundscape that rarely leaves room for thought.
It is an aural attack, seducing the listener to the barren and desolate black sands where the realisation of futility and loneliness sets in heavier than anywhere else.
The band members have created this project as an audio representation of the endless arctic darkness, and with pride present the self titled first offering: ‘Helfró’.
The cover artwork was created by View from the Coffin.
Helfró is Ragnar S (composition, drums, vocals) and Símon Þ (arrangements, guitars, bass, vocals).
