Alternating between haunting atonal soundscapes and quiet orchestral rhythm, Nøkken + The Grim has been one of primary bands since we started the website. Horse worship, pagan animism, ecofraternalism, screeching strings, all wound together in a lyricless mess that is unlike anything else you will fine in the antifascist neofolk circuit.
Their new album, Bestiengesang, is half invocations of spiritual animals and half live performance, always underskirted with a quiet and slow intensity. These eight tracks feel much more like painting or performance art than one-off songs, and its best to just jump in and hope for immersion. It’s dark and frightening, just what we expected.
Check out the new album below, the whole thing is available on the Nøkken + The Grim Bandcamp. They have yet to put the new tracks on Spotify so we have not added them to the Antifascist Neofolk Playlist on Spotify, but we have added tracks from the album Treason to Our Nature and will add the new songs when they are available.
