Rauhnacht – Unterm Gipfelthron CD
Rauhnacht – 'Unterm Gipfelthron' CD
6 panel digipak CD edition with booklet
With a whisper of forgotten times, something rises in the Austrian mist. Rauhnåcht returns to the fray in 2018 with his greatest work yet, “Unterm Gipfelthron”. Pushing the boundaries of the cold black metal sound heard on previous releases, “Unterm Gipfelthron” presents a new level of depth and evolution for the band. Furious black metal riffs, screams, and blast beats collide with victorious melodies, mystic folk instrumentation, eerie synths, and otherworldly chanting to evoke forgotten times and alpine landscapes. Elements of magical dark ambient and dungeon synth bisect these pagan battle hymns, moments of calm that both precede and follow the storms to come. This is a hidden jewel, plucked from the furthest reaches of windswept forest dreaming.
