Oslo’s Acârash have a flair for the dramatic, as evidenced by their latest song, “In Chaos Becrowned.” Pulling from hard rock, black ‘n’ roll and more traditional heavy and doom metal, the song builds from percussive blackened rock to an energetic heavy metal finale.
“‘In Chaos Becrowned’ embraces the constructive influence of chaos within the cosmic order,” explains bassist/vocalist Anlov P. Mathiesen. “The track is also a portrayal of the absence of irrelevant and distasteful deities, coupled with the deeply personal process of releasing the forces often hidden beneath obsolete symbolism and ideas. In an occult sense, the song has a very positive outlook. As the title track for our upcoming album it also epitomizes the main themes on the record, dealing with personal esoterism, mythical liberation and profound opposition. Musically the song is a progressive and percussion-driven rhythmic hymn, focused on repetition, building slowly towards the more all out blackened heavy metal climax.”
Acârash drummer Sølve Sæther handled the production for the accompanying video.
The trio’s debut album, In Chaos Becrowned, is out on June 8.
