After a very promising EP released back in 2021 and a handful of singles that sparked folk
metal fans' enthusiasm - especially the Scandinavian strain - VANSIND is finally ready to
release its debut album, 'Mørket'. With their feet planted firmly in the Danish soil, the band
provides a solid soundtrack for battle, chain dance and raised horns with melodies inspired
by folk music that meets solid metal, rumbling growls, and clean female singing. The lyrical
themes are inspired by the darker side of Nordic mythology and Scandinavian history.
Where the glimmer of the eye meets the glimpse of the sword you’ll find Vansind. And, if
you enter the dance, maybe you’ll get a glimpse of Valhal too.
Vansind was formed in the summer of 2019 as a folk-inspired metal band. Though the
members are from all over the country. Just as the members' geographical difference their
musical background is also vastly different (with members of Panzerchrist, Iron Fire, Vanir,
Detest and Mindmare gracing the lineup), they share their love for the music and a wish to
add something special to the Danish folk scene. This year alone they graced festivals such
as Næstved Metalfest, Asgaard Rock Festival, Warhorns Festival (UK), Hörnerfest (DE) and
Burning Q Festival (DE).
