Swiss Black Metal duo ERNTE announce new album „Weltenzerstörer“ and unleash video for first single!

Swiss black metal duo ERNTE has announced the release of their upcoming album „Weltenzerstörer“ along with the release of a video for their first single, „Ruler of Chaos, Bringer of Storm“. The album is set to drop on June 7th through Vendetta Records.

Following the band’s previous two albums („Geist und Hexerei“ / „Albsegen“), „Weltenzerstörer“ represents a further development of ERNTE’s earlier work, emphasizing its melodic and atmospheric elements while remaining true to its black metal origins.

ERNTE about the upcoming album, its aesthetics and meaning:
The cover was created by a graphic designer we came across on social media. His image immediately appealed to us and, in our eyes, fits the album title perfectly: Next to the sea monster, the ‚world destroyer‘, the few humans seem tiny and almost disappear. This world destroyer is also conjured up in a satanic ritual in the form of Leviathan in our first single/video ‚Ruler of Chaos, Bringer of Storm‘, for example. 

But Weltenzerstörer (‚world destroyer‘) doesn’t just mean the destruction of our earth – the plural ‚worlds‘ is a deliberate choice. The world of sick thoughts. The world of false feelings. The world of consumption, or the world of manipulation. The world of religions, which we all deeply despise. 

Weltenzerstörer is not a concept album, yet it can be said in general that the lyrics on the album embody a misanthropic attitude. It is about consciously chosen loneliness and the search for a higher meaning. But it is also an invocation of ancient powers and spirits in order to create new ones with the destruction of today’s sick world(s) and to give nature more space again.

Watch the video for „Ruler of Chaos, Bringer of Storm“ here:

Ruler of Chaos, Bringer of Storm“ is a satanic ritual in which Leviathan is conjured up,“ the band comments. „He is the ruler of chaos, the bringer of storms, he embodies the destructive power of water. But when one world is destroyed, a new one is created.

Weltenzerstörer“ was recorded and mixed by ERNTE’s guitar player & main songwriter Häxär at Inferno Studio, Switzerland. Master by Greg Chandler at Priory Recording Studio, UK. The album will be out on June 7th via Vendetta Records
