Austrian black/doom metal act Anomalie will release their second full length album Refugium worldwide November 20th 2015 via the Art of Propaganda label.
The LP was recorded, mixed and mastered by Markus Stock (Alcest, Secrets of the Moon, Helrunar) and features artwork by Irrwisch (Fäulnis, Amestigon, Lotus Thief).
From the press release – “In 2011, Marrok (Selbstentleibung, Harakiri for the Sky) founded Anomalie to combine his favorite elements of emotional black metal, post-metal, and depressive rock, which soon resulted in his own incomparable vision of profound and honest music. Two years later, the work for his first full-length album, Between the Light, came to a conclusion: Anomalie unveiled his impressive debut album with lots of positive reactions in the press. ”
“Now with the second Anomalie full-length, Refugium, mastermind Marrok shares his very personal vision of serious art influenced by a wide range of genres. It’s a blackened journey full of soundscapes between beauty and bleakness, hope and oppression, reality and the world beyond. Accordingly, each subgenre is utilized to its fullest potential without falling into cliche nor easy categorization, each one swelling until it’s fit to burst, so overcome with passion and emotion is Marrok. Each note is felt, never forced; each shred of his larynx is catharsis absolute; each transition is logical placed, the fateful march to a climactic end, where sadness will maybe, just maybe, prevail. ”
