We are excited and proud to announce that we have signed a worldwide album deal with NAPALM RECORDS!

SHYLMAGOGHNAR on the signing with Napalm Records:
\"We are excited to announce we will be working together with Napalm Records! We feel they are a respectable label with an integrity and enthusiasm we very much connect with. As such, they are a natural match to the style and ideology behind Shylmagoghnar, and we are very much looking forward to our collaboration!\"

Napalm Records A&R Sebastian Muench states:
„We are super excited to finally announce the world-wide signing of Dutch Progressive/Melodic Death Metal Band SHYLMAGOGHNAR! The debut album release of “Emergence” in 2014 can be considered one of the most brilliant albums in the last 10 years and already received close to 1 million views on YouTube! It makes me very happy to say that “Emergence” will be released on vinyl along with a new sophomore recording! Welcome to the Napalm family!”

In 2014 SHYLMAGOGHNAR released their first record Emergence. The whole album can be streamed via YouTube in full length here:

Now, as the band joined forces with Napalm Records, the first album Emergence will be released for the very first time on vinyl via Napalm Records!

SHYLMAGOGHNAR already started the recordings for the second full-length album entitled Transience. Both releases are scheduled for later in 2017. Stay tuned!

Dear listeners,


Since we are receiving more and more messages about it, we want to let you know we are looking into an opportunity to offer our debut album \'Emergence\' on VINYL!


However, it requires quite the investment on our part and we first need to know if there is enough enthusiasm for this plan. So if you are interested, please let us know by posting on our Facebook page, or sending us a message/pm on YT, Bandcamp or pretty much any other place you can find us!

And of course please share this news with your friends, we cannot do this without you!

Today we celebrate the anniversary of our debut to the metal world!
As we've said before, we have been very satisfied with how things went... and we don't plan to stop any time soon.

 So far we have mainly been giving updates and news surrounding Emergence, but we don't just want to dwell on the past forever. Now that a year has passed, we think it is time to also let you in on our activities and plans surrounding future works every now and then, starting here.


Here is what has been happening so far:

-We have decided to keep working as an independent 2-man studio band for now. This setup has been working well for us and we are looking forward to continue our path this way.

-Writing of songs for the next album (and possibly thereafter) has not stopped since the release of our debut. While we prefer not to share work before we feel it reflects our intended quality, pieces of the puzzle are definitely gathering! It's only a matter of time before they start falling into place.

-While the Emergence album was mainly themed by apocalysm and the admiration of nature, it currently looks like the underlying theme of the next album will be the transience of life. Therefore, in line with the previous album, its working title is “Transience”.

-The song “Journey Through the Fog”, of which an old bare-bones demo can be found on Youtube, will most likely be on this album. It is of course subject to heavy change. For example, it is planned to have vocals, and it should become less repetitive.

-We think it might be interesting to show you some snippets/pictures of how we're doing things in our little studio and around it in the future.


That's it for now. Thank you all for your support, we are looking forward to bringing you more in the future! \m/
