The Canadian quartet, LOVIATAR, returns embracing the notion of the difficult second album and diving headfirst into a whirlpool of oppressive imagery and existential dread to present their sophomore album "Lightless".
With a heavy dose of post-metal and some gothic touches for good measure, Loviatar have created a sound that is distinctively theirs.
LOVIATAR (pronounced low-vye-ah-tar) whose sound borrows equally from the hazy gloom of MY BLOODY VALENTINE, the cinematic psychedelic landscapes of WOVENHAND and the crushing riffs of ISIS. Clearly sung vocals, equal parts somber and soaring, set them apart from others in the genre.
Thunderous elements of doom and post-metal contrast with hypnotic moments of atmospheric introspection. Their art is inspired by the mysteries of ancient mythology: the band takes its name from an ancient Scandinavian death goddess and frequently evokes themes of epic fantasy in their imagery and lyrics.
Formed in 2010, LOVIATAR has independently released a series of singles and EPs, and have been tapped to support such acts as RED FANG, SKELETONWITCH and BLOOD CEREMONY.
LP pressing - 500 copies on Midnight Black with White Spackle.
Recorded at Wolf Lake Studios by Andrew Robillard. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Mike Bond.
