HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY "arson" CD
Mystical, icily and emotional: In the focus of the music of HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY stands the dreamy, the picturesque aspect, the melancholy joy of Black Metal and the tension of Post-Rock.
Founded in 2011 in Vienna, Austria, the aim of Harakiri For The sky has always been to create a unique mixture of melancholy and aggression, madness and meaning, and wrapped in alternately manic/mellow songs that bridged black metal and atmospheric post-rock. The band was initially begun as a studio project by erstwhile Bifröst member M. S. joined by vocalist/lyricist J. J., and has recently been expanded to a live lineup.
With that lineup secured, Harakiri for the Sky then embarked upon successful European tours with the likes of A Forest Of Stars, Ellende, Fäulnis, Der Weg Einer Freiheit, and Agrypnie among others, encompassing over 20 countries to date.
2016 was a really successful year for Harakiri For The Sky. Their 3rd album “ III - Trauma” got great acclaim from critics and audiences and a nominee for the “Amadeus Austrian Music Award”!
The recording process of the 4th album “Arson” is finished now!
It is the first time with a studio drummer on a record and no one more could fit better into the line-up then Kerim “Krimh” Lechner who handle the drums behind Septicflesh and played live with Behemoth.
The new album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Daniel Fellner.
