Fleurety “Min Tid Skal Komme’ – to be released as limited edition white vinyl LP on June 23!
FLEURETY was formed in Ytre Enebakk, Norway in 1991, & is known for pioneering an experimental & boundarybreaking approach to black metal, integrating a variety of styles beyond purely metallic ones. The band has released three studio albums to date, plus a string of EPs, & has primarily existed as a duo featuring guitarist Alexander Nordgaren (formerly live guitarist for Norwegian legends, Mayhem) & drummer/vocalist Svein Egil “Zweizz” Hatlevik (Umoral, Strid, ex-Dødheimsgard) throughout their full history.
After a long hiatus, Fleurety triumphantly returned in 2017 with their third studio album, ‘The White Death’; a new evolution for the band following their ‘Department of Apocalyptic Affairs’ release in2000, while retaining the core essence of their timeless debut in particular. Fleurety was considered a slight oddity to the rest of the Norwegian movement at the time of their inception in the 90s, for developing an altogether different style along with more dynamic musical influences and obscure & non-traditional riffing.
