Blut Aus Nord to release new studio album “Hallucinogen” on October 11th 2019

Blut Aus Nord Hallucinogen cover
Long-running visionary French black metal entity Blut Aus Nord has unveiled the details on the act’s impending new album, “Hallucinogen”. Now scheduled for October release through Debemur Morti Productions, the record’s cover artwork and other details have been unveiled.
 
“Hallucinogen” begins a new era for Blut Aus Nord, ending the cycle of clandestine industrialized dissonance that culminated with previous transmission “Deus Salutis Meæ” and moving skyward into freshly melodic territories of progressive clarity. Interweaving dreamlike choirs, inimitable harmonic developments, reflective clean guitars, palpable organic drumming, and a welcome rock and roll swagger, “Hallucinogen” is a spacious, emotionally wide-ranging record that finds Blut Aus Nord more open than ever, full of life, and reveling in the element of surprise.
 
“Hallucinogen” is yet another coherent universe from a band who have moved away from familiar tropes, aesthetics and comfort zones to unite - with Dionysian spirit - under/overland, surface/void, metropolis/mountain, and the vastness of the mind’s eye into an indispensable addition to their unparalleled body of work.
 
Metal Hammer posted an early preview of “Hallucinogen”, commending: “As well as being aptly named, “Hallucinogen” offers another sonic leap for a band who continue to evolve and expand nearly a quarter century on from their devastating debut album, Ultima Thulée. Still sounding as though your DNA is being spliced with stardust from a distant galaxy, Blut Aus Nord have shifted their axis from dense, roiling pitch-shifting dynamics to a more refined and open-ended sound, vaster in scope than ever before, devotional in its splendor and fealty to powers beyond time and space, and capable of ensnaring a new generation of intrepid metalheads drawn to the notion of black metal as a spiritual, mind-relocating experience”.
 
“"Hallucinogen" marks a new stage in our process of perpetual regeneration”, Blut Aus Nord architect Vindsval offers. “Music is a fascinating quest without end... and it would be a mess to express the same range of emotions, a mess to remain frozen in the same aesthetic, the same energy, a mess to compose and release the same thing again and again... and again”.
 
“Hallucinogen” was recorded and mixed at Earthsound Studio, mastered by Bruno Varea at Upload Studio, and completed with incredible, psychedelic cover artwork by Dehn Sora.
 
Fans of Enslaved, Emperor/Ihsahn, Bergtatt-era Ulver, King Crimson, and of course the incredible lineage of Blut Aus Nord to date will find “Hallucinogen” to be an incredible listening experience.
 
“Hallucinogen” will see release on digitpak CD, 2xLP, cassette, and all digital formats worldwide through Debemur Morti Productions on October 11th, 2019. The vinyl edition will be available in four variants; black vinyl, a Debemur Morti exclusive variant, a North American exclusive variant, and a Season Of Mist exclusive variant.
