Abkehr – “In Asche” (Album Premiere)


From the moraines of northern Germany emerges reclusive, miserable black metal duo Abkehr. Following in the footsteps of genre forebears Nyktalgia and Wigrid, Abkehr’s ashen debut In Asche obscures their inner isolation with abrasive, outward aggression and a harsh blanket of hiss. Dismissing the more modern approach to atmosphere, this band eschews the crescendo-based, long-form composition style in favor of crafting a howling fog of minimal desperation. In Asche recalls an age when black metal’s depression was a clear statement filtered through the second wave’s rage.

In Asche will be released on cassette via Sentient Ruin Laboratories on Friday, May 19th. You can pre-order the cassette now, and be sure to head below to listen to the album in entirety – bask in Abkehr’s negativity.
