Vildhjarta: RELEASES NEW TRACK, "PHOBON NIKA", ON FACEBOOK
VILDHJARTA RELEASES NEW TRACK, "PHOBON NIKA", ON FACEBOOK
Progressive djentlemen VILDHJARTA have now posted a new track on their official Facebook! Taken from their upcoming first full-length album, måsstaden (due out November 28th in Europe and November 29th in North America), "phobon nika" can be heard here.
VILDHJARTA also previously debuted a mind-bending music video for the track "benblåst", which can be viewed here. In the video clip, director Rob Mestas draws us into the obscure world of måsstaden, a concept record that tells the tale of a hidden and isolated town, narrated in a classic fable manner.
The Swedish septet's conceptual masterpiece is now available for pre-order on CM Distro, so be sure to reserve your copy here. All pre-orders will include a download of the non-album track "to be continued", which will be emailed to customers on street-date. See below for måsstaden's track-listing.

13. the lone deranger
14. to be continued (CM Distro pre-order track ONLY)
Reviews for måsstaden are already rolling in, so read on for critics' takes on the latest from VILDHJARTA:
"...måsstaden proves that VILDHJARTA not only know exactly what they are doing, but also that they are capable of making focused, engrossing and fantastic music...When this officially drops, you cannot ignore it." - 10/10, Got-Djent.com
"If you're sick of high-pitched and whiny singing and are in the mood for something much more dark and intense that almost manages to outdo MESHUGGAH in absolute madness, then VILDHJARTA is the band for you." - 4.5/5, Heavy Blog Is Heavy.com
"For a debut full length, måsstaden is incredibly solid. These wild-hearted Swedes have created a monstrous album that is an experience akin to diving headfirst into concrete. It isn't quite progressive metal and it isn't quite deathcore; it's nestled in that sublime category where genres are mixed, categories interwoven and the only genre tag you can manage to attribute to VILDHJARTA is 'pure badassery'. Thall." - 4.5/5, The New Review.net
