Upcoming release: "Vaitojimas"

Release date: Fri, Feb 09 2018, US Fri, Feb 09 2018

ERDVE are now streaming the second crushing track of their forthcoming debut full-length, 'Vaitojimas', which has been scheduled for release on the 9th of February 2018.

The Lithuanian experimental hardcore outfit is premiering "Prievarta" at the official Season of Mist YouTube channel here!

ERDVE comment: "Our second premiere track, 'Prievarta' translates as 'rape' or 'coercion' and is directly related to its literal meaning in both physical and mental aspects. The entire song structure is an illustration of this primal crime throughout the dynamics of the composition as well as the intensity of the song, which emphasise the psychological complexities behind this subject."

ERDVE have previously released the cover-art and album details of 'Vaitojimas', which can be viewed below.

Biography

Erdve-03-small-rokas_milius

Heavy insanity drips atmospherically out of every crack and crevice of 'Vaitojimas', which translates as "gibberish moaning". The album revolves around a concept of an emotional void filled without any moral barriers to self-satisfy the inner degenerate ranging from the ordinary to the criminally insane. This idea is turned into melodies, rhythm, and sound by ERDVE.

When ERDVE formed in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius in 2016, the band had a clear aesthetic vision of creating a unique heavy sound that experimented with elements from hardcore, sludge, and black metal – yet was not bound by any unwritten "rules" surrounding those genres.

ERDVE's members had already been active in their local scene and performed in various acts such as NYKSTA, SRAIGĖS EFEKTAS, and SPIRALE. A self-made tape version of their debut made its rounds in underground circles and the Lithuanians received the rare honour of being picked straight out of the dreaded demo pile by virtue of their musical strength and compelling quality.

The core ideas behind ERDVE are translated into lyrics, visuals, and sound by in-depth reflection on concepts such as domestic violence, utmost disgusting behaviour, crimes against humanity, and extremism.

With 'Vaitojimas', ERDVE are planting a fresh Baltic landmark, a largely unexplored region, into the international metal scene so far. Begin your journey into the new Lithuanian darkness!
