𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Deploying  (remarkable) fast atmospheric blackened repetitive riffage & heavy melodies, (with a hint (very slight) of the ringing of death tone) with slowness and thicker, bassier sound of doom

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Unique style of vocals, consist of earth-shattering deep screaming, a hint of snarls with a ritual/incantation or worship feeling

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Gut-busting, fast-dense drum patterns & countless blast-beats

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Dar Suchende is a seven-track of unique and very unsettling playing time of over thirty-nine minutes, consist of playing style of combining black metal & doom metal, but in a heavy bone-crushing & spiritual creativity way


Once sacrificing the play button, and unleashing evil spirits, that will rattle your brain and shatter your eardrums, with their sheer brutal extreme muscle of music and sound, Kapala (translates Skull Cup) breaks into the first track “Initiation Metamorphose” which is somewhat of an (over six minutes) unsettling mid-pace heavy-doomy sound & riffing, dense drum patterns, evoking ritual-snarls, moving to the last remaining six tracks, which are more an abrupt speed-fest, that seems to combines the music elements of the brutal black metal structure, (where the drums and sound are more cumbersome and played more of a brute force), that intertwines with a covering of a spiritual entity of cold atmospheric spiritual/occultism mood, fast shredding of black metal,  slow tempos of doom metal, dense crushing drums and the insane vocal technic


In contrast, each track has a deliverance of various compositions of individually unique and creativity within the music while giving you full-on aggression, brutalization, oppressive sound while creating worship to the highest form of spirituality that arose from the infinite chaos, the concept sound and lyrics try to awake the god that lurks deep in ourselves


The message is that you have to sacrifice something to become more than human, to control your thoughts and your feelings, to see (clearly) that matter of knowledge and will to break the chains that bind the slave to the material world and to get beyond life and death, to become one with the highest form of being

*full of energy* *spirituality & loud* *unsettling*

*entertaining* * a true masterpiece of occult work*
