Germany’s Black Metal duo ABKEHR have announced the release of their brand new full length record, titled “In Blut“, on May 21st via Vendetta Records!
With “I” the band now shared the first single taken from their upcoming full length record, a bleak and haunting black metal anthem. You can give it a listen below.
ABKEHR comments on the first single: “The ‘I‘ is the most representative and in addition name-giving number of the last part of our three-part opus. Opening track of ‘In Blut‘. The king is dead. At the gates the infidels rage. An empire in pieces. The heiress to the throne – a child still…”
Formed in 2015 in northern Germany by sole masterminds Raash and H. with the intent of unifying the raw misanthropic grimness of the most praised Norwegian black metal tradition, the swarming majesty of US atmospheric black metal and the desperation of depressive black metal, ABKEHR have been shaped by a diverse spectrum of influences, ranging from Darkthrone, Gorgoroth and Craft, to Cornigr, Mgła and Ash Borer.
Set for release on May 21st, ABKEHR have funneled the primordial abjection and hatred of traditional black metal through a cascading surge of the most blighted and tormented human emotions, creating something grandiose and ungraspable, who’s beauty is matched solely by its own omnipotent wretchedness.
