German Mystical Black Metal Project LILJEVARS BRANN Sign To Octopus Rising

Liljevars Brann is elated to announce their forthcoming collaboration with Octopus Rising (an Argonauta Trademark). This partnership signifies both the first chapter of Liljevars Brann and Octopus Rising.

Sjelvindur and Kristjan, the driving forces behind Liljevars Brann, express their enthusiasm for this venture, stating:
“We eagerly anticipate unveiling our debut album, ‘Helja Kor,’ to the world. It encapsulates a mystical expedition into the depths of a creative flame that has burned within us for an eternity. With Octopus Rising, we’ve discovered a kindred spirit who shares our passion for unorthodox metal music that embarks on unconventional paths. The inception of Liljevars Brann felt like a homecoming, and crafting our first record was an exceptionally fulfilling and uplifting experience. Our journey begins now.”

The debut single and official music video for ‘Dansa Mej Brodar I Fyre’ has been released now:

Liljevars Brann, in partnership with Octopus Rising, promises to ignite the metal scene with their unparalleled sonic adventure, “Helja Kor.” Prepare to be enthralled by their mystical black metal prowess.

Emerging from the void, Liljevars Brann is the brainchild of vocalist and composer Sjelvindur, alongside the accomplished drummer Kristjan. These longstanding comrades, with a history of crafting extreme music spanning decades, united to form this nature-inspired, mystical black metal project in early 2021.
Liljevars Brann’s musical voyage draws inspiration from the spiritual potency of early visionaries like Ulver, The 3rd and the Mortal and the Swedish Prog Rock legends, Landberk. Their sonic narrative is further enriched by a distinct individual essence.
Their inaugural album, “Helja Kor,” a remarkable creation composed and recorded within a mere eight weeks in the spring of 2021, weaves a tapestry of an unfamiliar language, its meaning unfurling through pure sound, adding an enigmatic allure.
“Helja Kor” is a grandiose odyssey, comprising five expansive tracks and a runtime exceeding 50 minutes. It traverses through realms of dark acoustic folk, ethereal chants, intense and fierce vocal expressions, and black metal grandeur, perpetually infused with melodic brilliance.
