The album is elegant, flowing seamlessly from traditional heavy metal riffs to djent worthy chugs to tremolo riffing to soaring melodies to…well, you get the idea.
When leagues of black metal and sludge bands continue to narrow themselves into smaller and smaller niches in genres that are already well-trodden, sometimes a band scrambles the assumptions of genre enough to keep everything interesting. Rorcal is one such band.
This may be the darkest entry I’ve heard in the cosmic black metal subcategory. It is also one of the best.
This demo is a truly excellent example of creating meaning and emotion within objectively difficult music.
The sound is fresh, but certifiably Stortregn.
Andromeda Anarchia: *let’s out an operatic ahhh* Music is so much fun.
This dismal imagery fits well into the usual black metal motif and creates a tone for the celestial void to be unleashed.
Aara honestly sounds like no other band I’ve ever heard, despite some similar elements to a few groups.
While I can’t bring any examples to mind, Millennials definitely feels like something I would have heard in the 1990s.
