Norwegian Black Metallers Nidingr are set to release their brand new album in 2017, titled 'The High Heat Licks Against Heaven', and today the first single from their fourth full length is premiered here on MetalTalk.

This is 'On Dead Body Shore', from 'The High Heat Licks Against Heaven' which is released on 10th February 2017.

Nidingr guitarist Teloch told us: "To me this song solidifies a thing that is fucking great about Nidingr - no rules. When being genre nazis like black Metal bands for instance is, you lose the ability to make songs that you dont necessarily would make. This song proves that at least we, who have the balls to do it, do not need to constrict ourselves to one specific genre, like some no brain capacity black Metal band have to do."

From Horten, Nidingr have been a part of the Norwegian Black Metal scene since 1992 and 'The High Heat Licks Against Heaven' is an album drenched in Norse mythology with names from the younger and older Edda appearing throughout in the lyrics. This is a brutal and honest metal record.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
