After our critically acclaimed debut album and EPs, we proudly present our sophomore album, Ôfstân (‘Distance’). The album was written over the course of 2017, 2018, and 2019. It is an extension and an evolution of our previous works that raises the bar set in the past.
Ever since the early beginnings, the band has had one vision: to combine aggression and atmosphere in black metal. The band draws inspiration from Frisian nature, myths and sagas, and the darkness of man, combining these to create their own unique sound. Kjeld plays fast paced black metal without forsaking melody and dynamics.
As always, the songs are soaked in the rich and ancient Frisian history, and solely chanted in Frisian, a minority Germanic language most closely related to English. Ôfstan will feature almost an hour of music. Expect a more diverse and mature album than Skym, without compromising the basic premise that defines Kjeld: aggression and atmosphere.
