The new album from one man Norwegian ambient black metal band Minneriket is just around the corner! "Anima Sola" will be released on January 2, 2018 via ABAR (Akslen Black Art Records) and will feature 10 tracks of dark, tormented music and lyrics. The first taste can be seen/heard above via the video clip for the opening track "Tro, håp og kjærlighet." Minneriket is the work of vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Stein Akslen, who created the project for as much a philosophical and spiritual channeling as a musical outlet. Akslen draws on influences as varied as punk and goth, yet he remains steeped in the intensity of the early Norwegian Black Metal scene. This fourth full-length from the band speaks of "solitude and ineptitude, loss and yearning; humorless Black Metal with music and lyrics equally painful and raw".
