Drott, a new dark folk prog outfit featuring Enslaved’s Arve Isdal, Ulver’s Ivar Thormodsæter and Matias Monsen, have released their first single, The Marauders, which you can watch below.
The Marauders is taken from the band’s first full-length album, Orcus, which will be released through By Norse Music on September 24. You can check out the album artwork and tracklisting below.
“The Marauders are not visible through the layers of mist,» the band explain. «You can hear them hanging in ropes and sharpening their tools of mischief before their dire intentions are manifested through slow, dark riffs and slaughtering, heavy beats. They are lost souls roaming the Underworld, vicious murderers and thieves constantly searching for prey.”
The group, who formed last year released their self-titled EP in March on the By Norse label. It established the Drott’s dark instrumental progressive rock sound with great reviews.
