Polish Pagan Black Metal Group VARMIA UnveilsHypnotic 'bielmo' Music Video!

Polish pagan alchemists group VARMIA – who pay tribute to their Baltic roots by combining black metal with traditional instruments such as the goat horn and the tagelharpa – has unleashed a music video for their new song “bielmo,” which also debuts today on streaming services. The track is a preview of things to come on the band's third album, “bal Lada,” which will be released by M-Theory Audio in Spring 2021. The music video, which premiered yesterday via and contains hypnotic imagery from the band's home region, can be viewed at

"'Bielmo' means cataract or leukoma,” explains band founder Lasota. “Ancients say that the blind one sees more. It's the gifted one. And so, we cry to be blind to the lights, to the distracting glimmer. Let the sight turn inwards. This is the first song after the invocation that opens the album. The middle section invokes a northern wind. Walk into it and let your blood freeze and consciousness soar high."
