The debut album from Gaahl’s Wyrd ‘GastiR – Ghosts Invited’ will be out at the end of May on Indie Recordings. Gaahl’s (Kristian Espedal) new project takes a path further away from the black metal he was formerly associated with Gorgoroth and combining the same metal with some very heavy dark gothic elements that one would hear with Bauhaus, Fields of the Nephilim or Clan of Xymox and infused with a deep Nordic spirituality for which he was renowned with Wardruna. It is both an exciting and impressive direction and a delight to hear a wider vocal range from Gaahl with clean vocals, deep and dark, disturbing yet promising. The single ‘Carving The Voices’ is out now and two other tracks off the forthcoming album.
Release date May 31, 2019. Release in Norway by Indie Recordings.
