Regarding the new album, NIDINGR founder Teloch (MAYHEM, ex-GORGOROTH, ex-1349) comments: “For NIDINGR, making an album is a very personal and honest thing that takes a toll on everyone involved. We must be true to an idea and execute it. We do not fuck around.
As usual NIDINGR experiments with new elements on this album too. The goal was to simplify things without losing quality and still keep the elements that Nidingr is known for, which is a challenge by itself.
“The High Heat Licks Against Heaven” is more raw and ‘in your face’, emphasizing the blistering speed and heaviness, which makes it even more extreme. The 7 string guitar is still a big part of the NIDINGR sound, as it has been since the first full album in 2005.
As always this is the best NIDINGR album to date.”
‘The High Heat Licks Against Heaven’ is available across multiple formats here.

NIDINGR (Cpt.Estrella Grasa- vocals, Teloch- guitar, Myrvoll- drums and SIR (Gaahls WYRD, GORGOROTH)- bass) was founded by MAYHEM guitarist Teloch, and named after an old Norse insult meaning “scoundrel” or “villain”, or a person of hatred and sin.

The band’s new album ‘The High Heat Licks Against Heaven’ is 10 tracks of scathing, caustic metal that showcases the band at the height of their powers. Sharp riffs twist and turn as they collide with explosive drumming, while vitriolic screams are unleashed from the depths of hell. Ambitious tracks such as “Surtr”, “Sol Taker”, “Heimdalargaldr”, “On Dead Body Shore”, and more, champion NIDINGR as the leaders of forward-thinking extreme music. ‘The High Heat Licks Against Heaven’ is total death worship, and sets a new bar for extreme aural domination.
