Halshug (“decapitate”) are from Copenhagen, Denmark. Their first album Blodets Bånd kicked my ass so hard last year that it’s only now recovered its beautiful shapely form. Unfortunately for my ass, Southern Lord is releasing Halshug’s second album on September 30. I’m in the market for ass armor. Overnight delivery would be a big plus.
The new album is named Sort Sind, which appropriately means “black mind” in English. It was recorded live, and you can tell that when you hear the music. It was also mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, who of course has a very accomplished history of helping bands beat the hell out of their listeners. We have a song from the album to share with you named “Vold” — which means “violence”. I’m already having trouble sitting down.
