News: VÖLUR announce new full-length „Death Cult“

VÖLUR have revealed the cover-art and further details of their forthcoming full-length „Death Cult“, which has been slated for release on November 13th.


The third album of the Canadian trio from Toronto was partly inspired by a suggestion of human sacrifice that Tacitus relates in his book „Germania“. According to the Roman historiographer, the Germanic tribes of the Baltic Sea worshipped the earth goddess Nerthus by a mysterious ritual that ended with the drowning of four slaves. „I came to the realisation that this sacrifice to some never answering deity is a repeating cycle of people doing something that does nothing to solve real problems and only leaves dead people behind”, explains VÖLUR vocalist and bass player Lucas Gadke. „This makes ‚Death Cult‘ probably the closest thing to a political album we will ever come up with. It is basically a lament for all the destruction, the burning, and gnawing away of this planet’s natural environment. Again, humankind appears to be stuck in a futile vicious cycle until it is too late.“
