  • Description

    After the revealing debut of “Imperii Templum Aries” and the “Theosulphuros” split album with PRECARIA, O^ROS KAU` returns with “Thanatos”, the first chapter of a visionary diptych which will soon be followed by the twin work “Hypnos”.
    The project of CZLT (NEPTUNIAN MAXIMALISM), O^ROS KAU` use death metal and black metal to explore new spiritual territories through references to Goetia, Greek-Egyptian Hermeticism, Astrology, Magic and Austin Osman Spare’s writings, among the other things.
    Wrapped in a splendid painting by Daniele Valeriani, “Thanatos” is a reflection on death, archetype of chaos, destruction and transformation as represented in ancient cultures, a stage of purification and enlightenment through pain and loss.
    Musically, O^ROS KAU` rings granite black/death guitar riffs above a powerful rhythmic base in continuous crescendo or often marching on deadly doom metal-tinged mid-tempos. The melodies are epic, but that certain mystical-esoteric flavor that has always characterized the Belgian artist’s music never fails, underlined by a complex vocal performance in which death metal growls, black metal screams and Tibetan chants converge.
    What O^ROS KAU` offers is an absolutely unique, hypnotic and intoxicating melting pot of cultures, musical and thematic contents; a true study in the sacredness of sound and voice and the power they convey, under the guise of a brutal metal album. The magmatic pulsation of the music and the jumble of vocals induce a state of trance, heightened by the diabolical invocations of the lyrics. The psychedelic vertigo reaches its peak in the colossal “Dawn Of The Red Scorpio” and in the exhausting “Bios-Phos-Metis”, 15 minutes of drone doom metal which push the listener into the arms of “Hypnos”. The journey has just begun.
