THIS ANTICIPATED FULL-LENGTH DEBUT IS EVERYTHING FANS TO THIS RISING YOUNG BAND HAVE LONGED FOR... POWERFUL MUSICIANSHIP, CREATIVE SONGWRITING AND TALENT IN METALLIC SPADES.
For the audio, Unsettling Dark finds this four-piece reuniting with producer Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage); the results truly stand up to offerings from modern contemporaries all with years on them in both age and recording experience. For the visual, they again tap the services of Travis Smith (Opeth, Katatonia, Anathema) to create a stunning package that further enhances the band’s overall concept and presentation. This musical journey will appeal to fans of Behemoth, Opeth, Nile and more.
Named after a kind of malignant female wraith in Scandinavian folklore that is believed to cause nightmares, this is Symphonic Blackened Death of the highest order. Epic, crushing, yet strangely uplifting, Martriden have somehow managed to fuse together the majestic power of Scandinavian Black Metal with the ferocity of Modern European Death, creating a sound that both showcases their influences and remains unique as their own. Absolutely essential for fans of Opeth, Behemoth and Enslaved!
