Prepare to be enchanted and haunted by the debut album from Belgium's gothic doom metal band, HYLDR. Their first album, "Order of the Mist," now available physically with a new bonus track, takes listeners on a dark, melodic journey into Viking and Yokai mythology. Guided by the mesmerizing voice of Lady IX, HYLDR creates an atmospheric experience that lingers long after the music stops.
The Story Behind the Music"Order of the Mist" features intricate melodies composed by VI (guitars) even before the band’s first rehearsal. With Lady IX's haunting vocals, these melodies transformed into epic metal operas. The album tells the tale of a young girl from Hokkaido trapped in a Norse mythological realm. It’s a narrative journey through Nebelwood Forest, where the mysterious Huldra folk use mist to resurrect the dead and manipulate humanity into an eternal struggle.
