Nadra Hinn Brennandi Vegur: Live at Roadburn 2017 CD
In 2016, Roadburn Productions introduced their faithful Roadburners to the obscure might of the Icelandic black metal underground. By having Misþyrming as their artist in residence, they were able to feature a series of other bands connected to them on their bill, and all of them made it abundantly clear with their devastating performances why Roadburn is so impressed with this particular scene.
Naðra, which features four Misþyrming members plus the unhinged demon that is vocalist Ö, gave Roadburn one of the most enduring experiences of them all when they damn nearly brought down the Extase venue. Sometimes, however, once is not enough. When, a couple of months after Roadburn 2016, they witnessed Naðra laying waste to a petrified audience during the amazing Eistnaflug festival in Neskaupstaður, Iceland, that tiny voice in their head that kept nagging them turned into a roar: Naðra needed more attention. This black magic is too powerful to be confined to small spaces. After that staggering show in Iceland, the decision was pretty much already made in their minds – Naðra needed to return to Roadburn.
Therefore, in 2017, they broke them free from the confines of a smaller venue, or of an artist in residence program. Like opening a Pandora's box, all those tortured, twisting hymns of sickness that made Allir Vegir Til Glötunar one of the most harrowing records of 2016 now resonated inside the Het Patronaat as if they were hissing, soul-consuming demons flying free and zoning in on you!
