DEATHGATE ARKANUM "Seelen" Gatefold 12"LP
None Shall Defy, Amor Fati Productions
For more than a decade Deathgate Arkanum has served as the medium for sole member S. to transmit and perpetuate his deep-minded vision of cold and atmospheric 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 complex soundscapes of surreal negativity and ulterior mystic ambience. Nevertheless a keen sense for the pristine dark harshness of traditional Black Metal pervades all those recordings. With "Seelen" Deathgate Arkanum has created four new tracks of unequalled grandeur. Those tracks transcend the listener beyond the shallowness of present existence into an emotional void beyond common human perception. "Seelen" will drag mind and soul on an aural journey through moribund sorrow and utter darkness towards the burning aether.
