VARDAN = THE NEW ERA OF BLACK METAL!!!
VARDAN Remains at the Forefront of the Modern Metal / Rock / Doom / Atmospheric Scene. Breaking expectations, Bending boundaries, Destroying the norm… Treading NEW ground for the entire Metal genre - while forging a new Path that is Uniquely VARDAN’s !!! VARDAN continues his ascension to the top of the metal scene with "Unholy Lightless Summer", the staggering 31st full-length album in the prolific bands 31+ year career and vast reservoir of ground-breaking music. More than a new album, "Unholy Lightless Summer" is the vision of the scenes most unique and prolific artist. His most ambitious, commercial, ambient and non (black) metal album to date, “Unholy Lightless Summer” has more in common with esoteric composers such as Ennio Morricone & Bernard Herrmann or contemporary Dark-wave masters like Raison D 'Etre, Ordo Equilibrio, Current 93 & the Moon Lay Hidden… than modern “Black Metal”! Overflowing with acoustic-electric guitars, vocal choirs & Gregorian chants, ethereal keyboards passages and predominantly clean vocals, “Unholy Lightless Summer” has a MASSIVE cross-over appeal to a wide and varied audience from Darkwave, Classical, neo-folk and free-form Jazz to build upon his already substantial Metal fan base. An artist long poised to break free of the confines set by Heavy Metal, Vardan has finally achieved and surpassed this ambitious accomplishment with his landmark 31st album “Unholy Lightless Summer”.
