OAR – Australia Post-Black Metal Collective Share New Track “Souls Lost in the Frost” Via Decibel Magazine
Sydney-based post-black metal collective OAR have just shared a new track off their debut full-length album “The Blood You Crave”, which is set for release on January 7th via Blighttown Records.
Titled “Souls Lost in the Frost”, this new song is now playing at Decibel Magazine, who commented “Sydney-based OAR hit the low end hard, giving their shimmery riffs and tortured vocals a weighty disposition. Think if Dragged into Sunlight had found ISIS’ Panopticon (or if ISIS suddenly found the urge to peel away the layers of Hatred for Mankind) riveting. OAR’s intent is serious and profound.”
The leading single and title track “The Blood You Crave” is still playing at this location.
With a resume that includes past and present stints in a wide and varied selection of bands like Eleventh He Reaches London, Futility, Illimitable Dolor, Lycanthia, Sleepmakeswaves and Tucker B’s, OAR ‘s band members absorbed all these influences to craft an album that explores such wide-raging genres as post-black metal, doom and even hardcore.
Recorded and mixed by Ben Worsey at Everland Studios in Sydney, the follow-up to 2018’s EP “Sect Burner” shows the band’s evolution from its early lo-fi blackgaze approach to full frequency post-black metal, unleashing the songs on “The Blood You Crave” at their true intensity. Pre-orders will be available at this location.
