Port Noir Any Way The Wind Carries (LP+CD)
Swedish post-metal high flyers Port Noir release their eagerly awaited second full-length opus. The album is entitled "Any Way The Wind Carries" and contains twelve brand-new tracks.
The band comments on 'Any Way The Wind Carries:' "Ever since the release of 'Puls,', we've been writing and recording new material, trying to develop the current sound and find new ways to express our feelings via music. We really tried hard to find the perfect arrangements for the songs, in length, in melodies, harmonies and instruments. Everything. What we tried the most was to get to the point in our songs more quickly, so the listeners get a point of what they're listening to before getting bored of a 2 minute long intro. We also opened our doors to synthesizers this time. During the process of writing material for the album, we were heavily inspired by 80's film music and other electronic music. We tried to integrate that vibe into our compositions, and you'll hear some of that on the album."
Recording duties were handled by Daniel Bergstrand in Mijas, a small mountain village in southern Spain. The album was mastered by George Nerantzis and the artwork was designed by Port Noir themselves.
