KROLOK - When The Moon Sang Our Songs MC
Formed in 2011, KROLOK hail from Slovakia and include members from the critically acclaimed Malokarpatan. But back in 2014, KROLOK quietly and clandestinely released a gem of a demo in When the Moon Sang Our Songs - so clandestine, in fact, it was only released in an edition of 24 copies. However, the quality of its songs are so eternal and so bewitching, Hexencave prod. simply had to release a wider edition of it.
Steeped in the mysticism of ancient, second-wave black metal from the early '90s, KROLOK's When the Moon Sang Our Songs possesses an otherworldly aspect like few other "black metal" recordings during this all-too-modern era. Its dungeon-entrenched atmosphere is impossibly distant yet all too palpable, creeping up on the listener unassumingly before entrancing with a uniquely desiccated physically. It very literally feels and sounds OLD, like the innermost tombs of a gloomy, long-abandoned castle from medieval times. Fittingly, it was all recorded by KROLOK during one magical night; not for nothing do they cover very early Carpathian Forest here. Kindred spirits, in the strictest definition of "spirits"... The past is very much alive When the Moon Sang Our Songs - wander among the twilight with KROLOK!
Recorded during one magical night 21.9.2013. Previously released on very limited DIY cassette, now released again with one bonus song (Graveland cover) and improved cover artwork.
