A masterful expression of creativity and a studied resistance to modernity. With black metal at the root, Remmirath propel into the widest realms of experimental and avant garde. Involving metal of all forms, ancient sacred music, ambient and noise, experimental electronics, krautrock and vintage psychedelia in their complex, uncategorisable sound.
Musical influence spans genres and generations. Agitation Free, Led Zeppelin, Electric Silence, Stockhausen, Sun City Girls, Ennio Morricone. Fusing these influences with a background in black metal and an outsider attitude results in the kind of diverse music only ever heard from other eccentrics such as SIGH and SOLEFAD. Creativity without restraint and without concern for falsely conceived limitations.
Vigilant, insomniac rationality engendering descartean godzillas In temples of postmodern debris The proof of the proof is not to be found In the narcissistic swamp of Generation Y I wait for the morning of the magicians Escape the rhizome dreamworld The world holds nothing we could pity Toss it down and rebuild The golden land of the giants
Matching the vast musical landscape, lyrics deal with a multitude of themes. Frequently cryptically, but entirely self-aware and sometimes willfully provocative. Eastern mysticism, the Traditionalism of Guénon & Evola, European philosophy and the hijacking of past beliefs by modern culture. Postmodern music against the postmodern world.
