Official press release:

Legendary Swedish black metal formation Mörk Gryning will be releasing their first new album since 2005. Hinsides Vrede is due on October 23 via Season of Mist, making it the band's debut to the label.

The band has released the first new single, "Fältherren," along with a new music video. The clip, which was created by Guilherme Henriques, can be seen at this location:

Founding member Goth Gorgon comments: "'Fältherren' is for me the essence of what Mörk Gryning is. Dark and brutal yet melodic and dynamic. Lyrically it's based on 'The Field Marshal,' a song included in Modest Mussorgsky's song cycle 'Songs and dances of death.' A part of the (translated from Russian) original lyric should suffice to explain its meaning: 'Then, illuminated by moonlight, on her battle horse, shining with the whiteness of her bones, appeared Death; and in the silence, taking in moans and prayers, full of proud satisfaction, like a field marshal she circled around the place of battle.'"
