NORWEGIAN BLACK METAL OUTFIT MINNERIKET SET
TO RELEASE SOPHOMORE EFFORT «STJERNER, SPEIL
Posted Autumn, 2016
Minneriket logo by Christophe Szpajdel
With the new album "Stjerner, speil og svartebøker..." set to be released in close proximity with Samhain,
Norwegian Black Metal outfit Minneriket offers fans a taste of what will be the band’s second full-length
with an alternate mix of the track “Jærtegn“ currently streaming and available for free download at
The driving force behind Minneriket is Stein Akslen, who has already achieved collaborative success in
Norway’s critically acclaimed Black Metal band Blodsgard. The 2013 release by Blodsgard, “Monument”
received high honors on many “Album of the Year” metal lists. Akslen has also established a firm presence
with the dark ambient solo project V0id&Khaos. In Minneriket, he has fully released the passionate
darkness of his mind into a musical format that is both disturbing and fulfilling, a near-psychotic break in
the glassy thin turbulent shell of today’s world. Minneriket’s first offering, “Vargtimen”, shattered that
glass and with the sophomore issue "Stjerner, speil og svartebøker..." Akslen stays the course, peeling
back the layers of a time filled with memories long hidden but never forgotten. The lyrics are deep and
haunting, serving to awaken the listener’s own intuitive mind. The resulting fusion of word and music
forms chaotic dissonant Black Metal with a true Norwegian influence brought up to date with interjections
of surprising melody and tortured vocals.
The album will be released October 31st in physical format on CD by ABAR - Akslen Black Art Records and
cassette tape in collaboration with Livet Er Avlyst Records, digitally through Bandcamp and iTunes,
streaming through Spotify, and will be also available for pre-orders through Bandcamp beginning October
1st. There will also be a very special, limited fluorescent cassette release of the "Jærtegn" single version to
include a tape-only bonus cover track of Venom’s “Black Metal”.
