SIGNAL REX is proud to present the debut album of one of black metal's brightest newcomers, DRAUGSÓL's Volaða Land. Hailing from Reykjavík, the heart of Iceland's currently hot black metal scene, DRAUGSÓL are a unique proposition amongst their distinguished stylistic countrymen. While those same contemporaries take an austere and varyingly atmospheric approach to orthodox black metal, DRAUGSÓL break from the norm with a sound that's pronounceably more kaleidoscopic and even a bit celebratory. But let it be known that Volaða Land is not "fun" music or partytime "black metal" or anything falling under the rubric of rock 'n' roll; rather, there is a strive toward the truly EPIC, a search for superiority of a world apart, a roaming of the hinterlands well beyond the borders of the imagination. At the album's emotional center is an existential crisis in a seemingly futile and careless world, the demented self-attempts to claw one's way towards meaning and the enlightenment of self.
