Swiss five piece with a thing for Greek mythology
Three years following the release of their critically acclaimed third album “Világvége”, Swiss blackened doom five-piece group RORCAL is back with a brand new full-length album entitled “Creon”.
A concept work based on the death of four well-known figures from the Greek mythology all linked to Creon, this new effort was recorded by Stéphane Kroug at Blend Studio and mixed by Daniel Bergstrand at Dugout Productions and is set for release on CD/LP on March 25th through Bleak Recordings in partnership with Halo Of Flies, GPS Prod, Division Records, Lost Pilgrims Records and Wolves And Vibrancy Records.
In the unholy year of 2005, RORCAL is born out of a baleful fog. The common aim shared by the five Swiss fellows has always been clear: reaching the deepest depths of darkness, searching a way to express the unnameable. This path has taken multiple shapes, from slowest forms of sonic punishment to cathartic expression of sound’s malevolence. The result is now well known, three albums exploring all the shades of extreme music, numerous splits and collaborations showing the wide range of possibilities lying within the band, various Eps, all displaying a different face of this ever evolving entity. Now the time has come for the next level of madness, a madness drowned in the blood inherited from Greek mythology. This fourth album titled “Creon” is to be released in spring 2016. Again, the band unleashed a new chapter of its unique path.
