Black metal iconoclasts Karg has premiered the new track “Alles wird in Flammen stehen” taken from the band’s highly anticipated fifth album, Weltenasche, set for international release on November 14th via Art of Propaganda.

For a decade now, this Austrian entity has been crafting awe-inspiring ambient-oriented black metal, and Weltenasche is Karg’s most daring and defiant record yet, guaranteed to simultaneously satisfy and antagonize black metal purists as well as lure a wide swath of extreme-music listeners.

Weltenasche is the first Karg opus which is lyrically completely performed in the dialect J.J. grew up with and which is spoken around the mountains of his hometown. Although highly influenced by post-rock and hardcore, Weltenasche is still a black metal record at heart – even though it’s far from what purists would call “black metal.” But Karg has always been a band of individualists, for individualists, and always will be; not for nothing is J.J. also a member of iconoclastic, critically acclaimed labelmates Harakiri For the Sky.

Weltenasche Track Listing:

06. Solange das Herz schlägt..
07. …und blicke doch mit Wut zurück
