THE THIRD STUDIO ALBUM OF DARK AND
DISTURBING EXPERIMENTALISM FROM THE
NORWEGIAN AVANTGARDE-METAL LEGENDS
Fleurety was formed in Ytre Enebakk, Norway in 1991, and is
known for their experimental & boundary-breaking approach to
black metal. The band has released two albums to date, plus a
string of EPs, & has primarily existed as a duo featuring Alexander
Nordgaren (formerly live guitarist for Norwegian legends, Mayhem)
& Svein Egil "Zweizz" Hatlevik (Umoral, Strid, ex-D dheimsgard)
throughout their full history.
The White Death is Fleurety's third full-length studio release;
marking almost two decades since 2000's Department of
Apocalyptic Affairs, and shows the band returning to the style of
the legendary debut Min Tid Skal Komme (1995); however, this time
more experimental, sarcastic and concise. As a result, The White
Death captures a darker and more disturbing version of Fleurety
than ever before, embracing the strange and the abstract to create
a wholly unconventional yet often poignant opus, both deep and
raw in its expression.
The band line-up for The White Death features guitarist Alexander
Nordgaren and drummer/vocalist Svein Egil "Zweizz" Hatlevik, now
joined by bassist/vocalist Czral-Michael Eide (Virus, Aura Noir),
vocalist Linn Nystadnes (Deathcrush, Oilskin), plus flautist Krizla
(Tusm rke, Alwanzatar) and backing vocalist Filip Roshauw (The
Switch). The White Death was recorded by the band themselves
and mixed by godfather of Norwegian noise music, Lasse Marhaug.
Mastering was performed by longstanding partner of the band
Greg Chandler (Esoteric) at Priory Studios, with artwork courtesy of
Trine+Kim Design Studio (Ulver, Darkthrone).
This version of The White Death will be released as a single LP
pressed on to 180g heavyweight audiophile vinyl presented in
a gatefold packaging, and in CD format presented in a digipack
packaging complete with a 12-page booklet.
