Just one year after their highly acclaimed debut EP, the black metal band 'King Fear' is going to release their first full length album entitled 'Frostbite' via Quality Steel Records/Soulfood on September 17th, 2013.
After releasing their first 5 track EP in 2012, the King Fear members went their separate ways. While singer Nachtgarm toured the world performing with Negator and Dark Funeral, main composer Mål Dæth moved to the Austrian wilderness to create new music.
Once Winter struck the band gathered with their drummer Boneln (ex Eisenvater) in their hometown of Hamburg Germany to start working on what was to become their first full length album.
Inspired by the history of Mountaineering, King Fear have created a full length concept album based on "The Conquest of the Useless"- mankind's possessive desire of reaching the highest mountain peaks. Driven by the realization of how well these old tales of desire, passion, myth, ancient belief and frigid heights fits the King Fear version of black metal, they decided to call their album 'Frostbite'.
Musically, 'Frostbite' is rooted in straight-forward black metal with a slap of black 'n' roll.
Great artists such as Satyricon, Khold, Shining (SWE), Celtic Frost and even Entombed and Tiamat have proven before that:- The fastest band is not necessarily the darkest band.
King Fear - 'Frostbite' was composed and produced by Mål Dæth. The mixing and mastering duties were handled by Olman Viper (Caliban, Dark Age, Dreadlock).
The trinity of King Fear are:-
Nachtgarm - Vocals.
Mål Dæth - Strings.
Bonelnn - Drums.
