“Embrace the nuclear chaos, bid farewell to Terra.” – Ave Noctum

A Requiem For Terra is the forthcoming new full-length from BLACK HOLE GENERATOR. Led by Vulture Industries’ mainman Bjørnar E. Nilse, and set to drop in North America via Dark Essence Records, the seven-track offering shifts between the bleak aural landscapes of a desolate world and the frantic torrent of the abyss. From the brooding, doom-laden opener of “A Requiem For Terra,” and the mesmerizing riffing of “Moloch” to the catchy “Beneath A Chemical Sky” and the fierce “Emerging Pantheon,” A Requiem For Terra boasts Nilsen’s distinctive and highly charged vocals and enough stand-out riffing to satisfy the souls of any guitar aficionado, with Arve Isdal (Enslaved, Audrey Horne) on guitars, Gjermund Fredheim (Taake, Orkan) performing lead guitars on three of the tracks, and additional guitars by Dag Terje Andersen.

In advance of its North American release and following premieres with Decibel and No Clean Singing, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR is currently streaming A Requiem For Terra in its engrossing entirety at New Noise Magazine at THIS LOCATION.

BLACK HOLE GENERATOR‘s A Requiem For Terra comes cloaked in the artwork of Romanian artist and designer Costin Chioreanu and will see release on CD, vinyl, and digital formats in North America November 25th. For physical preorders visit THIS LOCATION. Desirers of the digitals go HERE.

Forged in 2006, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR is the brainchild of Vulture Industries’ mainman Bjørnar E. Nilsen. It’s been a decade since the band’s first release, the critically-lauded Black Karma MCD, saw the proverbial light of day. And it’s of little wonder why given Nilsen’s frantic work schedule. Not only has Nilsen kept busy with the increasingly successful Vulture Industries, he is also among Norway’s most noted producers, working with bands such as Taake and Helheim, as well as owning Bergen’s Conclave and Earshot Studios with Enslaved’s Herbrand Larsen and Arve Isdal.
