Bizarrekult Are Trapped in the Middle of the Storm on “Midt I Stormen”


Siberian-by-way-of-Norway one-man black metal band Bizarrekult have a captivating approach to black metal, maintaining the icy Scandinavian atmospheres expected of a traditional Norwegian black metal band along with hypnotic clean vocals and a progressive approach to songwriting, as shown on their new song “Midt I Stormen.”

The mid-paced track has a very post-metal feel to it, moving in peaks and valleys and using choir-like sung female vocals to set the tone. Creative mastermind Roman V explains it:

“Midt I Stormen” (“In the middle of the storm”) is a desperate hymn of a loss. As we age, we lose our dear ones. Sometimes, these messages are like a lightning that hits the only tall tree standing in an open field. And there we are, burned and broken, on the ruins of our memories.”

“Midt I Stormen” is a cut from Bizarrekvlt’s upcoming debut album, Den Tapte Krigen (“The Lost War” in English), set for release next month via Season of Mist. If you’re a fan of other European post-/progressive black metal bands like Ellende and Der Weg Einer Freiheit, you’ll dig what Bizarrekvlt are putting down on the song, which you can check out below.
