  BLUT AUS NORD Disharmonium Unbreakable Abysses 2022 Debemur Morti Productions Avant-Garde Black Metal  Le silence après du Mozart, c'est toujours du Mozart...Voici venir le retour tant attendu des théoriciens de l'esthétisme dément, les dieux vivants de l'univers hallucinogénique...Blut Aus Nord...Le Silence après Blut Aus Nord c'est toujours du Blut Aus Nord... Disharmonium - Undreamable Abysses by Blut Aus Nord Vindsval et ses acolytes continuent leur oeuvre de déconstruction radicale du black metal tout en restant l'une des formations primordiale du genre.

Interview with Roine, via skype ! You've just released your 18th album with the Flower Kings if my calculations are right. So what does this new baby have more than the previous ones for you? I have to be honest, 18 sounds a lot to me, maybe depending on if add live stuff , then maybe you're right. If I think only about studio records, probably 12 or 13, something like that. Well, the album's  topic came about partly because of the situation as it is now.
