DROTTNAR offers a highly addictive and distinctly unique blend of modern technical metal. For fans of avant-garde and experimental extreme metal spanning a wide range and for once truly difficult to label.
Mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll [Emperor, Arcturus, Borknagar].
Ending seven years of silence, Norways DROTTNAR return fire with a hail of sonic bullets. Through eight tracks of disharmonic bunker metal they force seemingly formless structures into terrifying monoliths of industrial strength. Precisely dissonant, surgically passionate – STRATUM channels a claustrophobic, schizophrenic creativity that is highly unconventional and destroys all pretenders.
The long awaited follow up to DROTTNAR’s critically acclaimed debut album WELTERWERK (2006) takes technical, experimental metal to the next level proving the scene is not only alive, but needs further clarification on the meaning of heaviness. Unapologetic blackened metal for those seeking the extreme end of the genre.
And when we say extreme, we do mean extreme, pushing the concepts of extremity as no others do! Stratum (plural: strata) – a layer of sedimentary rock or soil with internally consistent characteristics that distinguish it from other layers.
