First confirmed Blodarv show for 2019 will take place at HEAVY AGGER METAL FESTIVAL 2019
Aside from having recently signed bands such as USURPER, DEATHCULT, PATRIA and GRAVDAL to their roster, SOULSELLER RECORDS have also been instrumental in the official re-issues of various Black Metal classics classics from bands such as GORGOROTH, OPHTHALAMIA, VED BUENS ENDE, OLD FUNERAL, DEN SAAKALDTE, THORNIUM and ANCIENT, to name but a few.
Commenting on the decision to sign with SOULSELLER RECORDS, BLODARV had this to say:
"We have to say that we are really looking forward to working with Soulseller - a cooperation that will greatly benefit both the band and the fans. Soulseller have proven themselves to be a label of some note with a great many quality releases over the years, and we are more than satisfied to be working with them on the upcoming album.
One of the things that was very important to us was that this album should also be released on Vinyl. Not only because many of our fans prefer vinyl over other formats, but also because as soon as we had written the first track, we all felt that vinyl was where it belonged, an, as a consequence, the whole album was created with that particular medium in mind.
Another aspect to signing with Soulseller was the availability issue. Up until now, once we had sold out of our releases at the official BLODARV store in Denmark it has been extremely difficult, not to mention very expensive, for our European fans and followers to get their hands on them. Ordering from Mexico, where our previous label and their distro were situated, meant that fans in Europe were hit with taxes, customs charges and prohibitive postal costs, whilst we ourselves could only stock a very small number, as all our releases had been limited to 1,000 copies. With Soulseller this will all change.
There are, of course, a few more reasons why we are looking forward to this co operation, not least of which are trust, shared visions and goals, dedication, artistic freedom, and the excellent communication we have with Soulseller."
More info about "The Illuminating Darkness" will be available soon, but in the meantime BLODARV recently gave fans an insight into what they could expect from the album by premiering the track "A dark trail of Death" which is available to stream or download at the following:

Concerning the Flamekeeper EP Hugin says : “We have a strong connection to our fans and followers, that’s why I crafted the fifty amulets out of the goat bones, and why I choose to put one in each of the limited box sets together with one of the candles used in the ceremony for the most diehard fans... The new tracks on “Flamekeeper” salutes the power of the ancient flame, the fire that feeds us and the fire that eats us. Its about putting demons into art, protecting the old, and once again send the listener into the dark demon filled universe of BLODARV. It´s about creating great Black Metal and also give the fans something unique and personal together with the album beside the music, like it was done in the early years of the Black Metal Underground. Its a hail to lust and blasphemy, to powerful energies, to the moon and the beast of the night, to the powers we got inside, to the nights where the flame burns bright, where souls and demons and worlds unite, it’s a hail to the power with a thousand names, a hail to the power of the ancient flame. For thousands of nights in its illuminating darkness “.
