Mannveira - Vítahringur (Digipak CD)
MANNVEIRA (Iceland) - Vítahringur (2021) (sealed Digipak CD). Formed in 2010, Iceland’s MANNVEIRA have been a relatively quiet band during the first decade of their existence. Four years after inception, the band released their first EP, Von er Eitur. Two years later they teamed up with the enigmatic Canadian band, ELLORSITH for a haunting split on Dark Descent Records. Silence has largely followed since that split as the Black Metal band has honed their songwriting skills for 2021‘s Vítahringur.
Recorded in 2018 to 2019, Vítahringur is a manifestation of the downward spiral which it represents, portrayed in five tracks of abstract misery and violence. Vítahringur is the culmination of a decade’s work for MANNVEIRA and the darkest journey in their existence. No longer will the band be lurking in the shadows. Vítahringur is the statement the band has been working toward all along. Highly recommended for fans of Deathspell Omega, Sinmara, Misþyrming and Zhrine. **originally published on darkdescentrecords.com** Dark Descent Records – DR248CD
