Swiss post-metal trio Ølten are poised to release their sophomore full-length album, Ambiance, on November 2 via Hummus Records. Forgoing a lot of post-metal’s tropes in favor atmospheric beatings and anxiety-inducing tension, Ølten’s forthcoming record proves to be a unique and menacing reinterpretation of the genre.
In anticipation of its release, we at Svbterranean bring you the band’s official video for the new track “Lied”. The slow-burning track, which is set to a performance video, showcases the band’s penchant for crafting tense, suffocating buildups that gradually become walls of gut-wrenching sludge. Check it out for yourself below.
