London-based atmospheric black post-metal entity BEAUTALITY will release their bold new album entitled Einfallen: A Tale Ov Torment & Triumph on March 16th via Nordavind Records.
Recorded by Tom Dring at Vagrant Recordings tirelessly in six days only and averaging work days of 15-22 hours, this magnum opus will certainly be embraced by fans of ALCEST, CODE, AUSTERE and ENSLAVED, and cause a stir with its haunting melodies and its entrancing atmospheric journey through torment and triumph, light, dark and far beyond.
Originally planned to be released as an EP, the vision and scope far outgrew it’s inception and became an incredibly ambitious concept album depicting the emotional intensity and limits of the mind and astral plane collectively.
The bands ambitious sophomore full-length telling the story of descent into eventual redemption will be available on two discs (featuring limited edition bonus artwork by band mastermind David Ravengarde) and digital formats.
Cover and tracklisting as follows:
Act One: Torment
III. The Devil’s Elixir
Act Two: Triumph
IV. From The Abyss
Einfallen: A Tale Ov Torment & Triumph will be released on the 6th anniversary of Beautality. Prepare yourselves for the vanguard of modern metal.

Nordavind Records has made their releases available as a pay what you want download on their Bandcamp.
So far, the 9-month-old record label has released the sophomore album by Bergen-based melodic black metal unit VINTERBRIS, which features exclusive artwork from Norwegian cartoonist Kim Holm, and the debut full-length from Finland’s atmospheric / post-black metallers ATRUM TEMPESTAS, a duo consisting of Kylmäaho and Perttunen (CATAMENIA).
Nordavind’s co-founder Joel Costa comments on this decision: “These 9 months of activity were beyond great and we already have plans to make of 2015 an even greater year, so we decided to give the opportunity to the ones who haven’t listened to any of our releases to download our catalog and keep it under their radar. This is also great for the ones who couldn’t buy it before and can do it now for an amount that fits their budget or even for free if they desire.”
But the newcomers are not the only ones to be reminded by Nordavind, as Joel explains: “Of course we also thought about what we can do for the ones who have been supporting the Nordavind Records’ family since the beginning and we’ll send a download-code to everyone who has bought something from us on Bandcamp before so our supporters can download our next release for free.”

Nordavind Records is proud to announce the signing of Finnish Atmospheric Black Metal unit Atrum Tempestas, adding that the band’s debut full-length Néant is already scheduled for an October release.
Here’s a commentary from the band on the signing: “We are glad to announce that we have signed to Nordavind Records for the release of our first album. Needless to say, we are very excited to be working with Nordavind Records, who, with their continued support, will give our music a fitting home. We can hardly wait for you to hear and see the fruit of this partnership, and hope for positive things to emerge in the future for all parties involved!”
Hailing from Finland, Atrum Tempestas is a stormy, yet tranquil trip into atmospheric black metal, drawing influences from styles like funeral doom and post-rock. Since its foundation in 2007, Atrum Tempestas’ music has been shifting from deliberate minimalism to alluring soundscapes and from thoughtful examination to bursts of emotionally charged passages. Lyrically “Néant” derives both from personal experience as well as more abstract themes of loss and nature, being the band’s first foray into crafting a conceptual whole.
The album will be released on October 13th in CD and Digital format.
Cover artwork and tracklisting as follows:
1. Quitter ceux qui étaient déjà partis (14:18)
2. S’éclipser (06:22)
3. Et après… le néant (11:06)
