Press Release by Kalt Vindur and The Circle Music
Polish Subcarpathian black metal act Kalt Vindur has joined The Circle Music roster. As part of the deal with the Greek record label, the band will release its third full-length album, “Magna Mater”, in early 2024.
The first music video for the single “Bless Us” promoting the new album is available to view via Black Metal Promotion:
Svart at Kalt Vindur said: “Bless Us” is a good preview of the music contained on ‘Magna Mater’, which is a mixture of atmospheric and progressive black metal. The album consists of seven compositions, including one instrumental, different from the rest of the album.
“We are excited to be working with The Circle Music for the release of this album. We’re definitely in good company with great acts such as Necromantia, The Magus, Melan Selas and Corax B.M among many other high-quality bands.”
Maria Papageorgiou at The Circle Music added: “We welcome pagan black metallers Kalt Vindur to the family. Hailing from Dukla, Kalt Vindur is the first Polish band to join our roster. Their upcoming third album “Magna Mater” is by far the best they have composed and compared to the previous ones (“Delusions”, “… And Nothing Is Endless”), I would say that the band has made enormous progress.“
About the band
The band was established in the spring of 2015 in Dukla, Poland. After personnel changes in the line-up of Artur (Svart) on guitar, Julian (Xakhariash) on drums, Szymon (S) on bass guitar, Wojciech (Celsus) on vocals, the band recorded their first album entitled “Delusions” and released in 2017 by Polish record label Mara Productions. Following that, Kalt Vindur were joined by guitarist Marcin (Ver) for live performances and shortly after became a permanent member of the band.
The band’s first album consists of six compositions set in the climate of progressive black metal, characterized by the climate of the Podkarpacie region, demonstrated by the melodies and aggressive rhythms. The themes of the lyrics include man’s struggle with his inner demons, weaknesses, as well as events related to the history of the Podkarpacie region, such as the devastating battles of the Second World War, death, destruction and suffering.
In 2020, the second album entitled “…And Nothing Is Endless” was released by Witching Hour Productions, on which the band further developed their style and cemented their unique presentation of Subcarpathian black metal. This time, the music gained even more power and melody with a regional tinge. The compositions became even more violent and heavy. They played concerts alongside such bands as Pandemonium, Hate, Batushka, Jarun, Zmarłym and performed at Siekiera Fest 2021.
In 2022, the band recorded the material for their third album entitled ‘Magna Mater’. The drum recordings for the new album were made by new talented percussionist Rafal Chruścicki (Czarnuch), who replaced previous drummer Julian (Xakhariash). The band’s style has also evolved this time, making it the most mature work with some surprising changes, but at the same time a multidimensional and coherent album.
Pre-order details and further information about “Magna Mater” will be made available soon.
