Pre-order the limited edition 10" of the new Gaahls Wyrd mini-album.

Gaahls Wyrd (the current project of Gaahl from Gorgoroth and Wardruna) will release a new mini-album, The Humming Mountain, on November 5 via Season of Mist. It features five songs that clock in around 30 minutes, and Gaahl explains why he's calling it a "mini-album":

I like the concept of a mini-album instead of an EP. I like the format of a mini-album. Back in the day, bands like Hellhammer and Celtic Frost used this format. The audience gets more from this format. To me, it’s more serious than if it’s just a few tracks. Plus, the concept of The Humming Mountain isn't big enough for a full-length album. The concept was something I had to get out of my head.

The first single is the title track, a dose of brooding gothic metal that you can stream below.
