For more than a decade Deathgate Arkanum has served as the medium for sole member S. to transmit and perpetuate his notion of cold introvert Black Metal through several demo tapes and split contributions as well as two full-length albums. Driven with unbound creativity and fueled by strong individualism, Deathgate Arkanum showed a perseverant evolution towards more elaborate creations of surreal negativity and baleful melancholy. Nevertheless a keen sense for the pristine dark harshness of traditional Black Metal pervades all those recordings.
With “Seelen” Deathgate Arkanum delivers four new tracks which transcend the listener beyond the shallowness of present existence into an emotional void distant from common human perception. “Seelen” will drag the mind on a journey through moribund sorrow and utter darkness towards the burning aether.
Released on clear vinyl in a gatefold cover with spot-lacquered layout. Issued in 500 copies through the collaboration of
Amor Fati Productions and None Shall Defy Records.
