An Icelandic old school death metal band Narthraal is about to release their second EP “Chainsaw Killing Spree” digitally via Inverse Records. EP is released October 7th 2016 on all essential digital music stores/streaming platforms.
The band is currently preparing their first full-length album which is released 2017 via Inverse Records.
The band started out late 2012, when the current vocalist Viktor asked current rhythm guitarist Tony if he’d like to start a band together.
Viktor would be vocalist and Tony would be on bass, Viktor started looking for members on facebook, where he met Helgi and Kári who would join the band and complete the lineup, with a few minor alterations. Helgi would be on drums, Kári would be lead guitars, Tony would be rhythm guitars and Viktor would be on bass and lead vocalist.
Early 2013 Helgi had to resign due to personal matters and Jónas was then welcomed into the band as a new drummer. And in early 2016, Kári left and Birkir joined the band as lead guitarist almost the same week.
Narthraal love old school Swedish death metal and are so far the only band in Iceland that actually uses Boss HM-2 that produces that beautiful fat, filthy sound!
