Today,   Purity Through   Fire   announces April 10th as the international release date for   Greve 's highly anticipated second album,  Föllo af Svavel, Lifvets Dimridå , on CD format. The vinyl LP version will come later this year.

In 2019,   Greve  burst from the void with two records, both through   Purity Through   Fire : first, the  Nidingsdåd utav det uråldriga  EP and then the full-length Nordarikets Strid. That   Greve  exclusively played classic, second-wave Swedish black metal came as little surprise given the band's membership: Ancient Records linchpin Swartadauþuz ( Bekëth Nexëhmü , Azelisassath, Digerdöden, Gnipahålan, Musmahhu, Mystik, Summum, Trolldom, Daudadagr), then joined by vocalist Lik of   Bekëth Nexëhmü  renown. Much like most/all of Swartadauþuz's projects are blessed with an intrinsically ancient sound, authentic and austere as the age-old classics from which his imagination sprung, so too did   Greve  with a breathtakingly spectral 'n' stargazing style of black metal mysticism.

Now, three years later do   Greve  emerge from the shadows with another full-length, which both consolidates and extrapolates those all-too-considerable powers. Featuring a new lineup - Korgath on vocals and Juhos on drums, with Swartadauþuz still handling all guitars, bass, and keyboards -  Föllo af Svavel, Lifvets Dimridå  bursts forth with beauty  and  menace, its denser and more aggressive sound betraying no small amount of shimmering atmosphere. All instruments within the soundfield are clearer and sharper, and yet they all work in unison to create a canvas both grounded in the earth and transportive toward the ethereal. The album's eight-song/46-minute structure is key; bookended by an intro and outro, the interior black metal epics drink deeply of 1996-vintage classicism but replenish the listener with its none-more-majestic swoosh & swell. And like   Greve 's foundational first two recordings,  Föllo af Svavel, Lifvets Dimridå  emits a similarly racing-yet-floating aspect, now simply more gleaming - and ominously so...

Atmospheric Black Metal Art (Exclusively) for dreamers and lone wolves alike:   Greve  are handily creating their own niche within an already exclusive niche.  Föllo af Svavel, Lifvets Dimridå  is their latest monument by which to launch journeys to the stars and/or into the self.

Begin your next journey to the stars with the brand-new track "Åska i Himlavalvets Förljugna Svarthet"   HERE  at   Purity Through Fire 's official YouTube channel. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
