Humanity’s Last Breath
12 February 2021
Swedish black death juggernauts HUMANITY’S LAST BREATH have announced the release of new album Välde, the apocalyptically heavy follow-up to 2019’s Abyssal, on 12th February 2021 via Unique Leader.
Meaning ‘Empire’ in Swedish, Välde is a darker, bleaker journey than its predecessor, with a further emphasis on the atmospheric nature of the band’s sound and the use of dissonance, creating a claustrophobic, dense record that pulverises the senses. Almost uncomfortably bleak at times, echoes of the likes of Ulver and Meshuggah are present on Välde, combining perfectly with HLB‘s signature blackened groove template that they have become renowned. An atomic bomb of a record – this is HUMANITY’S LAST BREATH in their coldest, nastiest form.
Since their inception in 2009 in Helsingborg, Sweden, HUMANITY’S LAST BREATH have made huge waves in the death metal underground with their monolithic, terrifyingly heavy, and relentlessly technical sound.
Led by band mastermind, guitarist and producer Buster Odeholm (Vildjharta, Born of Osiris, Oceano), HLB have proven time and time again to be one of the most fearless, uncompromising, and creative voices in extreme music.
Välde promises to be one of the most powerful and terrifying releases of 2021.
