Ovate to release self-titled debut album on June 1st 2018

Soulseller Records proudly presents the self-titled debut album of Norwegian Black Metallers Ovate - featuring live members of Taake and Gorgoroth!

It will be released on June 1st, 2018, on CD, vinyl and digitally.

Ovate was founded by Aindiachaí (Guitars/Bass) and Brodd (Drums) in their quest through pagan landscapes, spewing forth some of the most epic and venomous Black Metal in a way that is presented so little in modern day.


Congrats on “Prometheus”. Seriously it’s one of the best things I’ve heard in recent years, easily surpassing the latest Rotting Christ albums imho.
V: Thank you for your kind words, you honor us greatly...
Please introduce the band to the international audiences.

Enslaved - Roadburn Live

Roadburn has become a mecca for all the stoner and semi-alternative rock and metal bands, plus hipsters. Enslaved used to be a typical “Black/Viking” what-not sort of band, during their first ten years of existence... switching to a much more accessible style after the turn of the millennium, starting with “Monumension” with often softer passages and clean vocals… becoming more of a norm and making them accessible to a larger audience.
