BLUT AUS NORD BIOGRAPHY
Blut aus Nord is a black metal/post-black metal/industrial metal/avant-garde band from Mondeville in France.BLUT AUS NORD GENRES
The name "Blut Aus Nord" is [grammatically incorrect] German and literally translates to "Blood From North".
The band started in 1994 as a solo project, with Vindsval playing all instruments under the name Vlad. He released two demos under this title before changing the projects name to Blut Aus Nord before the release of Ultima ThulÃ©e in 1995. The next three albums were recorded with the aid of session musicians: It is only fairly recently that the group has had any permanent members apart from Vindsval.
The project's most critically acclaimed release is The Work Which Transforms God, a concept album which - in spite of being mostly instrumental with none of the lyrics made public - is meant to challenge the listener's prejudices and preconceptions about reality, life and various metaphysical subjects. The Work Which Transforms God has been almost unanimously praised in reviews and was named by Terrorizer Magazine as it's number one album of 2003.
