Blut Aus Nord releasing ‘Memoria Vetusta III’
by Ian Chainey
Blut Aus Nord love their trilogies more than Hollywood. The French black metallers have a new album on the way and it’s adding another chapter to a series started in 1996. Memoria Vetusta III – Saturnian Poetry will be released on October 10 via Debemur Morti Productions.
As you can see in the art above, Memoria Vetusta III should shift Blut Aus Nord away from the Lovecraftian and industrial creepy-crawlies and back to the epic, synthy, and lead-heavy black metal typical of the Memoria Vetusta collection. The previous entry, Memoria Vetusta II: Dialogue with the Stars, was released in 2009. Blut Aus Nord already have two 2014 releases under their belt, the celebratory Debemur MoRTi EP and the Triunity split with P.H.O.B.O.S. In 2011, leader Vindsval talked with Bob Furtado in an interview translated for Invisible Oranges.
