VILDHJARTA Just Posted One Minute Of New Music And It's Devastating
Vildhjarta's hype was extremely real between 2009 and 2013, with the band's demo, full length, and EP all being excellent releases. In the world of "djent" at the time, Vildhjarta stood head and shoulders above everyone else, with its brand of terrifying atmospheres, insane string bends, and demonic vocals.
On New Year's Day 2015, we posted about Vildhjarta working on the followup to 2011's Måsstaden record (or the 2013 Thousands Of Evils EP), and clearly that never came to fruition. In fact, the band fell pretty silent after that, and between then and now has lost guitarist Jimmie Åkerström and drummer David Lindkvist.
Åkerström's spot remains unfilled, Lindkvist has been replaced by Buster Odeholm, and Vildhjarta appears to be back. The band just posted a teaser called "heartsmear" and offered absolutely no explanation as to what it is. A new EP? A new album? Maybe just a new song to get back into things? Who knows, but I'm stoked for it.
Oh, and for those who want to get all uppity about drum sound, this is just a pre-pro track with programmed drums. So relax.
