Update (09/04/20): since we wrote this piece, the album has been made available for streaming in its entirety. We have embedded it below but otherwise kept the piece unchanged.
Good news for those who like their black metal both raw and melodic, as one-person black metal band Wrekan has announce the release of its debut full-length. Entitled «Gevurah», it provides continuity from the highly promising demo and EP released last year. Per the press release of the upcoming title, it is “a story of hardship, yet a will to fight for something better,” while as far as the music goes, it “sometimes ventures into more atmospheric black metal territory, but nevertheless delivers some raw frustration and anger.” Below, catch the two first glimpses of «Gevurah» by way of the rather intoxicating pair of «The Nothing at the End of Nowhere» and «Cast Down Leviathan», with the former embedded in such a way as to display the gorgeous artwork of the album.
«Gevurah» is set for release on April 29 through Consistentis Veritatis Peremptoria on cassette format, whose ordering will be possible at this location.
The story of Wrekan, the band who flies the “no talent – no masters” mantra, dates back to last year, when their debut demo «Vråk» was recorded somewhere on the Swedish countryside.
«Vråk» was independently released on October 10, 2020, and is available here on digital format.
A bit more than a month after, the band released the much more full sounding EP «Rotten Aurora», recorded “in the wilderness of Wermland” during the later stages of the year and available for streaming below.
«Rotten Aurora» was independently released on November 30, 2020, and is available here on digital format.
