Info:

A study in patience and progress, KRATER formed in 2003. In the band's earliest days - across two demos, two splits, and 2006's debut album - the KRATER sound tended more toward pagan black metal, but powerfully so. Come 2008, however, a period of silence and self-reflection followed...

When at last those sounds arrived, KRATER had taken on a new form: one partly tied to their earlier traditionalism, another more so modernized. This burst-chrysalis came in the shape of 2011's "Nocebo", and following yet another lineup shake-up, 2016's masterful "Urere", courtesy of current label home EISENWALD. However, with these still-poignant albums as the foundation, KRATER have now delivered their magnum opus with "Venenare".

A 50-minute work broken into nine songs but unified as one winding, widescreen composition, Venenare shows KRATER at the height of their all-too-considerable powers, a blinding and windswept vortex of sumptuous songcraft and passionate execution. Motifs slice and dice, blast and race with a grace that's simply stunning, as melodic counterplay runs riot with a proud 'n' powerful assertion of classic metal sensibility. KRATER's contours here undeniably exude a sleek and urban quality, but with abstracted hints of their pagan past subtly woven in to the soundfield, the result is staunchly second-wave black metal bravely recast for the 21st century.

With cover artwork courtesy of Misanthropic-Art and mixing & mastering handled by Esoteric's Greg Chandler, KRATER have gone full-force to deliver a great work for the ages with "Venenare".
