Stream: Swedish Black Metal Cult CRAFT Return after Seven Years

Swedish black metal cult CRAFT are streaming their highly anticipated new album, White Noise and Black Metal.

Their first new album in 7 years, White Noise and Black Metal‘ sees the notorious and highly influential Swedish black metal band reclaiming their throne as one of the most intimidating and caustic entities in the underground. A cold and calculated attack on hope and the light, CRAFT spew nihilism and negativity in its purest forms. White Noise and Black Metal is a true manifesto of hostility, and a testament to the genre’s most elite and uncompromising band!

CRAFT embody the black metal virtue of raw spiritual energy expressed through violent, ripping guitar-work and unholy rhythms enhanced by demonic vocals. The Swedes have long enjoyed a massive cult status within underground circles. White Noise and Black Metal is available across CD, CS, and LP as well as various digital formats via Season of Mist.

Formed 20 years ago, CRAFT first gained notoriety through the release of their now acclaimed landmark album, Total Soul Rape in 2000 (The Black Hand). The band further evolved their approach to extremity with the release of Terror Propaganda (2002 – Selbstmord Services) and Fuck the Universe (2005 – Southern Lord, Carnal). Following a 6 year hiatus, the band returned in 2011 with their latest album, Void (Southern Lord, Carnal).
