Dødheimsgard was formed in 1994 by Vicotnik and Aldrahn. The early incarnation was that of a raw and melodic black metal band with a debut album that also featured Fenriz of Darkthrone on bass…and then the poisons of a more avant-garde and schizophrenic mindset began to infiltrate DHG. One of the top bands and boundary-pushing visionaries of the mid-90s Norwegian Black Metal evolution, releasing four full-length albums since its inception, the band is widely hailed as a master of dark and psychotic psychedelia-tinged extremity.
The first fruits of DHG’s re-animated labor manifest in the shape of this new studio album, with original co-founding member Aldrahn (Thorns/The Deathtrip) making a return to the asylum on vocal duties alongside Vicotnik’s exquisite and unconventional compositions and structures.
A Umbra Omega is DHG’s first album since 2007’s Supervillain Outcast opus and inarguably marks the band’s most challenging work to date: twisted, technical, sprawling epics and an inverted outlook on existence from the depths of band mastermind/writer/producer Vicotnik, with parallels to previous classic DHG works including 666 International and Satanic Art. The album was mastered at Strype Audio in Oslo by Tom Kvålsvoll and the pervasive primal and organic production style is courtesy of Vicotnik himself.
