Danish black metallers ORM recently announced their new album, Intet • Altet, and shared a three-minute excerpt visualizer from the epic album opener, “Fra Dyden” (“From Virtue”). Today, the band shares the second excerpt visualizer by Cold North Creative, this time with the album’s second track, “Floden, Som Kan Skabe” (‘The River, That Can Create’).
ORM’s Intet • Altet (“The Nothing • The All”) is a double album that continues the band’s expansion further into the realms of epic and visionary black metal through a narrative of four life phases, which unfold over four grandiose compositions with a massive running time of ninety-two minutes!
Intet • Altet was recorded and produced by the band’s own Simon Sonne Andersen, mastered by Frederik Brandt Jacobsen, and carries artwork by Raoul Mazzero (View From The Coffin) with photography by Naya Buch and Adriana Zak. Also appearing on the album is trumpet player Mads Peter Steenstrop and violinist Nils Gröndahl (Kellermensch, Under Byen).

Intet • Altet will be released on September 30th as a digipak 2xCD, cassette in a Maltese cross card case, and digital formats. The 2xLP vinyl editions – 300 on Black vinyl with White sleeve and 300 on White vinyl with a Black sleeve – will arrive in early 2023 due to delays in worldwide vinyl productions. Preorders for all formats are available at Indisciplinarian’s webshop HERE and the digital version can be pre-saved HERE.
Additional previews of the album will be issued over the weeks ahead.
ORM will embark on a Danish/Norwegian tour in the fall, starting at Vega, Copenhagen on the release day and concluding with two Norwegian shows in Bergen and Oslo in November. Tickets for the tour are available HERE.

ORM was formed in 2015 and released its eponymous debut album in 2017 setting the stage for the band’s epic melodic, black metal. Their 2019-released second album Ir saw the band transcend the confines of contemporary black metal with an LP consisting of two long tracks of progressive extreme music. ORM always seeks to expand their artistic universe and to explore the boundaries of extreme metal and push beyond them. One of the band’s unique hallmarks is the epic format with long compositions and simultaneously personal and metaphysical narratives on human existence.
Extremely well received by the press and audience alike, Ir and the subsequent 2020-released Mit Blod EP garnered attention both within and outside the extreme metal community, leading to raving reviews, a nomination to the prestigious Steppeulven Danish critic’s award and well attended shows in Scandinavia. Most recently, ORM concluded this year’s Copenhell Festival in their homeland Denmark, playing both Ir material as well as a track from Intet • Altet to five-thousand exalted festival guests.
