We have re-evaluated our current online home and decided to re-do our webshop. With 4 items restocked, and hopefully some more to come, we hope that all of you can find something to your liking and spread the word of Vetrar Draugurinn. Thank you for your support!
The month of May has kicked down the door and we’re establishing some mayor progress in the process. On the very first day of this month we headed out for some brand new band photographs, taken by our dear friend Cristel Brouwer. We took some band photos and some individual photos at several locations; all to go with the release of the upcoming album.
The album will feature one song with guest vocals from another dear friend, namely Mark Kelson (singer/guitar player of the Australian Dark Metallers The Eternal). He added some nice clean vocals in high and (gothic) low range. A very nice contrast to Marjan’s vocals that will lift the sing to another level.
And finally we can announce that the mix of the album is done and yesterday we have sent it out to the UK for mastering. Moving onwards, we will have more news coming soon, as we are heading down several different paths at the same time. Stay tuned!
After a whole year of Covid-19, after life in slow motion, like watching the world go by through thick mist,… we found the strength to move onwards. We have been working hard in the shadows and created a new chapter in the form of our 2nd full-length album.
We are currently putting the final touches to the mix of 8 brand new songs, which are collected under the monicker “The Night Sky”. Up next is the mastering and the artwork. Soon we will give the first glimpse of things to come. The journey is still long, but we are about to up the gears. Loads of things are happening at the same time. So, we are happy to say… The new chapter starts HERE!
This March will see 2 unique and awesome gigs, a collaboration between 2 of the melancholy tinged powerhouses of the Netherlands. As both Autumn and Vetrar Draugurinn are fronted by the talented Marjan Welman, we convinced her to do double-duty on these nights. It will be exciting and a test of her endurance, for sure, but we have all the confidence in the world that she will pull it off with ease and stun the audience with her soothing vocals. We hope you can all come down to one of these shows and witness an evening of heaviness; support the bands. We can’t wait to share the stage with our dear friends and fellow ambassadors of honest music in our home country. 🙂
The time has come… From this moment on you are able to pre-order our full-length album HINTERLANDS through the link below. When you order the digital or physical album you receive the download for the title track instantly, BUT… the first 200 orders will also receive an EXCLUSIVE bonus track, namely “The Noose” (Originally by A Perfect Circle)!!!
This rare bonus will not be available after March 28, and can only be obtained by pre-ordering the album through Bandcamp. So don’t hesitate (!!) and help us spread the good sounds across the world.
We are delighted to announce that we will celebrate the release of our album HINTERLANDS (set for a March 28th release) with a very special CD release show on Sunday March 31st, 2019 at Willemeen, Arnhem.
The day will see 2 bands in support (which will be announced soon as well). We will do our best to make it a more than memorable evening with a special setlist and special guests.
We would be honoured if you (and your friends, family, colleagues) would join us and celebrate music.
December sees the first step onto our official road to the release of our debut full-length album “Hinterlands”. Today we reveal the outstanding artwork by Gogo Melone (http://www.gogomelone.com/), especially made for this album. We couldn’t be happier with the end result. It paints the right melancholic picture to host our collection of songs.
The album “Hinterlands” will be released through Painted Bass Records on March 28, 2019. Soon more info about the pre-order and inside knowledge about what kind of building blocks this album is made of.
Due to the fact that our guitar player Thomas Cochrane is out of the country on November 3rd we will play the planned gig with none other than Bram Heijs (Hologram Earth, Transient State) on 8 stringed guitars.
Our support gig to WINTERSUN will start at 7.15, so be on time!
