LOVIATAR (pronounced low-vye-ah-tar) are a metal band from Canada whose sound borrows equally from the hazy gloom of My Bloody Valentine and the crushing riffs of Isis. Clearly sung vocals, equal parts sombre and soaring, set them apart from others in the genre. Thunderous elements of doom and post-metal contrast with hypnotic moments of atmospheric introspection. Their art is inspired by the mysteries of ancient mythology: the band takes its name from an ancient Scandinavian death goddess and frequently evokes themes of epic fantasy in their imagery and lyrics.

Formed in 2010, Loviatar has independently released a series of singles and EPs, and have been tapped to support such acts as Red Fang, Skeletonwitch, and Blood Ceremony. In 2014, they shifted production to their newly built studio deep in the forested hills outside the nation’s capital and have now completed their first full length LP.
