ZT have teamed up with our friends at Despotz Records to bring you the debut single from mysterious Danish duo Angstkrig; ‘Lucifer Kalder’ .

‘Lucifer Kalder’ is the first single of the upcoming album Skyggespil, and features Frédéric Leclercq (Kreator , DragonForce, Sinsaenum etc.) According to the band, “Musically ‘Lucifer Kalder’ (‘Lucifer Is Calling’) is obviously the most upbeat and festive song on ‘Skyggespil’ with a magnifique solo by Fred Leclercq (Kreator, Sinsaenum, Loudblast). And since it’s about the Dark Lord, the lyrical theme is pretty festive too.”

In the latter part of 2019, Angstskríg felt inspired and rapidly wrote their debut offering Skyggespil (Danish for ‘shadow play’), which was recorded in Hikikomori Studio with producer Frederik Brandt Jakobsen at the helm. It was by his hand Angstskríg’s particular take on the Nordic sound took form.

The story of Angstskríg took root decades earlier, towards the end of the last millennium. From a young age the duo were taken under the wing of a common mentor, under who’s guidance they taught themselves how to play, perform, create. How to be artistically curious, how to express themselves. How to challenge boundaries and convictions. From those small steps, this marked the beginning of their musical journey.

Though life separated the two and took them down diverging paths, where one pursued the road of knowledge, the other a path of entertainment, they never lost touch, and the idea to reunite at some point remained prevalent. So after gaining a decade of invaluable experiences, the time was now ripe to create what would become Angstskríg…watch this space!
