KATLA

Set release date for debut album!

 Svart Records sets September 30th as the international release date for Katla's debut album, Embryo. Katla is an enticing mixture of everything that was unforgettable and magical in the musical landscape of the '70s: a hint of krautrock here, a dash of Hawkwind-y psychedelia there, and  a touch of Swedish folk rock on top.
 In February 2014, Katla entered the legendary studio of Silence Records in the dark forests of Värmland to tape their long-play debut. During a weekend of recording and walks through the woods, the album took shape. The songs consisted of old and new ones, ranging from the  krauty psych-rock of "A Black, Slimy, Smooth and Tongueshaped Form", over the heavy stoner of "Horsehead" to the calm of "Embryo."
 Embryo was mixed at Cobra Studios by Christian Gabel (bob hund) and the band with help from David Svedmyr. After finishing the recording session, Katla went on hiatus due to members moving abroad, but now they're back, and they're ready to present the psychedelic nugget that is Embryo.
