For all its beauty, Iceland can be a dark place, where the furious elements rage and teach fear but also inspire human creativity. Hailing from the village of Hveragerði in the south of the volcanic island, AUÐN are the latest offspring from the burgeoning black metal scene in this land of ice and snow to set their tattered sails for foreign shores.
Unlike the majority of their blackened brethren, AUÐN trade in haunting melodies and bitterly beautiful atmospheres – as opposed to the jarring and caustic blunt force trauma that has brought this remote place in the Northern Atlantic to the black metal forefront of late, providing a much needed balance to the darkness.
Founded in the bleak winter of 2010, AUÐN will remain to haunt your starving eardrums until their final crescendo closes the book on a burnt and barren earth.
