Darkwoods My Betrothed sign with Napalm Records

Official press release: After more than two decades of silence, Finnish cult black/epic metallers and pioneers of the scene Darkwoods My Betrothed carve their long-awaited comeback in stone by signing a worldwide record deal with Napalm Records. In 2020, the old horde from the original line-up rejoined forces, now augmented by former session keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen as a full member of the band, bringing a significant contribution to the creative process, and Kai Hahto (both Nightwish) as session drummer. Founded in 1993 in Kitee, Finland, Darkwoods My Betrothed quickly gained a cult status in the black metal underground. In 1995, they released their debut album, Heirs of the Northstar, followed by sophomore album, Autumn Roars Thunder (1996), and Witch-Hunts (1998). Shortly after, the pagan flame of Darkwoods My Betrothed became but a fleeting glimpse in the nocturnal darkness of Eastern Finland. But it never faded away completely. Be prepared for an onslaught of melodic black metal and epic majesty.
