“Travelling along a mystic wavelength between hard rock and the extreme metal their homeland is known for, Acârash’s sound is distilled into an elegant if ruthlessly efficient blend of groove and barbed glistening riffs. ”
Acârash is an occult hard rock outfit formed in Oslo in the fall of 2016. Founded on the pillars of the 90s avantgarde rock cult outfit The Void, the lineup consists of Sølve Sæther on drums, Lukas Paulsen and Anders Gjelsvik on guitars and Anlov P. Mathiesen on bass and vocals. The bands diversity spans from bands like Lonely Kamel, Zection8, Faustus and Deep Rest.
Blending hard rock, doom and black metal the band embraces tradition yet forges a genuinely independent sound. Esoteric poetry and ritualistic contemplation is central to the music, and mirrors the nuances in both sound and musical contrasts.
With their debut album In Chaos Becrowned (out 08. June, Dark Essence Records) Acârash reinvents and preserves, delivering a record which explores and develops the boundaries of rock and metal, and naturally alternates between raw catchiness, dark introspection and progressive playfulness. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Ruben Willem at Caliban Studios the sound fits the sharp delivery and the crispness of the music itself.
