In a previous article we gave the news of the release of Urgehal’s new albumAeons in Sodom on February 12 2016 on Season of Mist. The article said also that the album was a tribute to former songer Trondr Nefas who passed away in May 2012. As we explained, the album features a lot of black metal stars, and that article also included a streaming of the song (click here to listen).
When Trondr Nefas sadly passed away of natural causes at the age of 34 on May 13th in 2012 this also sealed the end of Urgehal. Out of friendship, respect and as a tribute to their late singer and guitarist, the Norwegians decided to go ahead with producing a final album. Half of the material on Aeons in Sodom was written by Trondr with the other half contributed by guitarist Enzifer. Urgehal invited close friend and band mates from other projects of Nefas to contribute and those honoured in this way all joined to pay homage.
Urgehal had previously premiered two songs: “The Sulphur Black Haze” with Hoest on vocals and “The Iron Children, featuring Darkthrone’s Nocturno Culto .
