Misþyrming is a black metal band from Reykjavík, Iceland. Since its formation in 2013 the band has made a name for itself within the worldwide metal community, performing at numerous festivals as well as touring around Europe. Their debut album, “Söngvar elds og óreiðu” (Songs of fire and chaos), was released in 2015 to a widespread high critical acclaim. The album was recognised as a punishing and wrathful, yet melodic beast of a black metal album. It landed 9th place on Noisey’s Top 100 albums of the year, outranking artists like their fellow Icelander Björk. The vinyl edition of “Söngvar elds og óreiðu” sold out within 2 days and has since then been highly demanded by fans, regardless of numerous restockings. In 2016, Europe’s biggest metal magazine Metal Hammer named Misþyrming as one of the Top 10 Icelandic bands.
Algleymi, Misþyrming’s sophomore album meets “Söngvar elds og óreiðu” in a proper manner, where sound and song structures show a strong evolvement of the band. It explores new paths, everywhere from blasphemous ceremonies to a total rejection of humanity.
Fans of Misþyrming will recognise “Algleymi” as a logical step up from their debut album, where the relentless brutality and unforgiveness prevails.
