Icelandic black metal formation Auðn have revealed the cover artwork and details of their upcoming new album 'Vökudraumsins Fangi'. The band's third full length will be released on October 30th via Season of Mist.
The cover artwork of 'Vökudraumsins Fangi' was created by Mýrmann and can be viewed below, together with the track list.
"We are thrilled to announce our new album 'Vökudraumsins fangi' which will be released through Season Of Mist this autumn. After the release of Farvegir fyrndar we found ourselves wanting to expand our horizons and try new directions with our music. Adding a new member to the fold we entered uncharted territory for Auðn. We further explored themes we have wanted to chart for some time. More aggression, more melody and with the help of Jens Bogren we achieved soundscapes that echo the vast desolation that is Auðn today."
Returning with ‘Vökudraumsins fangi’, Auðn explore new soundscapes and push their music to new heights, thereby setting themselves further apart from their Icelandic contemporaries. The six piece draws inspirations from their natural surroundings, but also chart the territory of the mind. The album title literally translates to ‘prisoner of the daydream’, but rather refers to a perpetual state of delusion of a life that never took place.
Join Auðn while traversing the blurred lines between reality and the supernatural and the otherworldly sceneries of their native Iceland.
