“Cosmic Reawakening” is CRAFTEON‘s debut album which is based on H.P. Lovecraft tales like ‘The Outsider’, ‘Dagon’ and ‘From Beyond’.
“This recording prudently recounts an antiquarian bundle of peculiar short stories authored by the famed American horror writer, H.P. Lovecraft, featuring a blasphemous potpourri of amorphous black metal enmeshed with spurious, assonant passages of hope juxtaposed and vanquished by discordant strains of utter despair and madness.” – from Bandcamp

“Approaching the latter half of 2017, INCANTATION is set to prove – once again – that their vertigo-inducing, ever-spiraling blackened mass of death metal malevolence is as expansive, infinite and bleak as the coldest, darkest reaches of our universe. At the pinnacle of their storied career, the guys have engineered a brand new weapon of anti-biblical proportions. This weapon, entitled Profane Nexus, comes armed with eleven tracks of musical antipathy, impregnated with the band’s inherent, unrivaled, visual and lyrical depravity.” from Bandcamp
“‘Autexousious‘ captures similar feelings and sonic spaces to ‘Litost’, with Mekigah’s signature slow tempo. Harsh, bottom end tones set the scene with doom laden soundscapes held together by stripped back drums and bass while guitars spin a whirlwind of random frequencies. These audible hallucinations are recounted by layered nightmarish vocals. The lyrics are derived from manic, abstract & personal poetry, exploring ugly, impatient & self analytical themes.” – from original promo
Riksha’s sound is affectionately known as “throg”, a mixture of “thrash” and “progressive”. The band can best be compared to groove metal and nu metal bands such as Mudvayne, Tool, Pantera, A Perfect Circle, Soulfly, Nothingface, and Coal Chamber.
