NOW PLAYING: KAFIRUN – The Seed, The Serpent, The Scythe
“The Seed, The Serpent, The Scythe”
FFO: Thantifaxath, Misþyrming, Mgla Released: April 6th, 2021
The dank caverns of black metal are populated with plenty of bands obsessed with both the darkness of life and the evil side of religion. But only a few of those bands back up their music with consistency and realism. Kafirun are one of those bands. Their dizzying brand of black metal is meant to draw the listener into hypnotic submission, so their mind can be opened and their will corrupted. – Bandcamp Daily FFO: Thantifaxath, Misþyrming, Mgla Kafirun falls under the Black Metal genre. Not in the pure/raw BM sense though. More in the sound of Blackened Death, Dissonant, Occult, Aggressive BM. The band was established in 2014. They are located in Vancouver BC Canada. They have released material via labels from Italy, Germany, Australia, Poland, US and Israel.
The Seed, The Serpent, The Scythe is the twisting, dissonant, aggressive, and high-tempo black metal assault that we have come to expect from Kafirun, but their music has never felt this full of rage before. If the rest of the new album is comparable to this track, then 2021 just became a lot more interesting!
