Swedish occult rock/metal mavericks HYPOTHERMIA, have revealed that they have recently finished recording their new album entitled “Svartkonst”. The release date, which is expected to happen in spring 2015, will be announced along with other details shortly. The follow up to the 2010 longplay “Skogens hjärta”, will be the band’s first release under Agonia Records.
Speaking about the sound of the new material, guitarist Kim Carlsson (ex-Lifelover/Kall) said that the new album will be “a conceptual offering divided over five compositions”, and that it will feature a guest appearance of the violinist E.B. “More in-depth information will follow along the first ritual. Prepare for the invocation…” – he added.
The mysticism of HYPOTHERMIA is characterized by its highly ritualistic compositions, which are conducted in shamanistic trances of minimalism, and binding their followers in its meditative spell. Always recorded live, sharing with the world something honest and unique. HYPOTHERMIA was founded in 2001 as a means to channel negativity and manifest it in audial form. “Following ancient traditions carried in spirit and blood, through wanderings and introspective journeys a communion with a deity of the void is formed” – comments the band.
After being active for thirteen years the constellation of HYPOTHERMIA that has evolved through the years from a duo to a trio, will be stepping further out of obscurity by slowly evolving to an orchestra.

Kim Carlsson – vocals/guitars
Richard Abrams – drums
