With a whisper of forgotten times, something rises in the Austrian mist.
RAUHNÅCHT returns to the fray with his greatest work yet, “Unterm Gipfelthron”.
Since forming in 2010, RAUHNÅCHT has released two titanic full lengths, “Vorweltschweigen” (2010) and “Urzeitgeist” (2014) in addition to a series of EPs and split releases.
“Unterm Gipfelthron” – meaning “below the throne of the mountain peak” – moves to the next-level: a hymn to nature through the medium of melodic, progressive Pagan black Metal heavily immersed in Alpine mountain folk music – simultaneously majestic and introspective, bombastic and remote.
Strikingly talented guest musicians are integral to the whole, woodwind adornments – meditative or dervish-like – and a stunningly mellifluous choir sweep the listener into misty-eyed reflection or act as a clarion call to the wild hunt.
RAUHNÅCHT give past traditions an otherworldly new context within its 5 new songs:
01. Zwischen den Jahren 04:27
02. Unterm Gipfelthron 09:16
03. Gebirgsbachreise 05:06
04. Ein Raunen aus vergess’ner Zeit 10 :31
05. Winter zieht übers Land 11:17
“Unterm Gipfelthron” is a hidden jewel, plucked from the furthest reaches of windswept forest dreaming.
