Latest news: Tue, May 28 2013, CARACH ANGREN
Melodic black metallers CARACH ANGREN’s first two albums, namely ‘Lammendam’ and ‘Death Came Through A Phantom Ship’, will be re-released on Season of Mist on July 19th (July 23rd in North America) in remastered versions with bonus tracks. See details below.
Originally released in 2008, debut album ‘Lammendam’ set the basics of CARACH ANGREN’s refined yet angry symphonic black metal. The Dutch created a baroque cinematic style that related true to their haunting subject to classical horror movies, which was underlined by the use of violin and grand piano. The reissue of ‘Lammendam’ features three bonus track taken from the long sold-out ‘Ethereal Veiled Existence’ debut EP (2005).
In 2010, the release of ‘Death Came Through A Phantom Ship’ marked a new chapter for CARACH ANGREN. With this sophomore album, the band refined their established formula, blending a uniquely baroque approach into melodic black metal partly related to CRADLE OF FILTH and DIMMU BORGIR. The reissue of ‘Death Came Through A Phantom Ship’ includes three songs from the 2004 ‘The Chase Vault Tragedy’ demo and from the ‘Ethereal Veiled Existence’ EP, re-recorded in 2011.
Both albums will be re-released on Digipak CD and various coloured LPs. Pre-order on Season of Mist’s e-shop now.
The digital versions are already available on iTunes and all legal download platforms.
'Where The Corpses Sink Forever' is available at the Season of Mist e-shop in CD, t-shirt and CD + shirt bundle.
The Dutch masters of horror are back! CARACH ANGREN will take you to the hell of war with their mind blowing third full-length "Where The Corpses Sink Forever". With bold strokes of eerily shimmering and whirring guitars, scratching dashes of fiercely rasping vocals, dabs of precisely rattling drums and a wide palette of grey and black sound hues, the trio creates dark portraits of supernatural landscapes that rival the masterful craftsmanship of Rembrandt, Bruegel and Vermeer in their vivid imagery and depth of detail. What started in the year 2004 with the paranormal cases of demo "The Chase Vault Tragedy" and soon after the "Ethereal Veiled Existence" EP (2005) quickly turned into the full blown local haunting of "Lammendam" (2008), which was followed by a stormy journey onboard a cruel ghost vessel entitled "Death Came Through A Phantom Ship" (2010). Although their music is clearly based on Black Metal, CARACH ANGREN developed a style on their own, more flamboyant and openly theatrical, which perfectly fits the cinematic horror concepts of the Dutch. This originality has been well received by critics and fans alike right from the beginning and CARACH ANGREN also gained a reputation as an excellent live act. Now it is time to open a new and even darker chapter with "Where The Corpses Sink Forever". Let these ghosts of war drag you under their irresistible spell!
