ISKANDR / Netherlands

After releasing three acclaimed studio albumsand a number of EP’sas Iskandr, in which multi-instrumentalist O. was supported by M. Koops (Fluisteraars) on drums, Iskandr has since developed a new directionwithan eye for live performanceas a solo artist. A heavy sound of psychedelic folk doom is emphasized by film footage of sublime natural scenery:toweringsun-drenched mountains and medieval ruins in enchantedforests. Ever as regal and triumphant like the black metal albums Iskandr is known for, the new album will focus on the intersection of medieval atmospheres, otherworldly post-industrial musical cues reminiscent of early Dead Can Dance, as well as the psychedelicfolk music of the 60’s and 70’s. If the widely shared single “Knagend Zout” is an indication of what is to come, Iskandr proves to deliver on his intention to deliver a unique and captivating new blend of deeply atmospheric heavy music
