Asarhaddon’s blend of abrasive black metal with atmospheric elements makes the sound more urgent, more to the point. The band plays an immersive brand of atmospheric black metal that, while raw around the edges, offers a strikingly mature approach to the style.
The Metal Archives states about Asarhaddon, «In the Autumn of 2018, Asarhaddon began recording their new album Reysa in Franconia, the origin of countless creations of the collective. In the following spring, they completed the 52-minute-long effort with Markus Stock at Klangschmiede Studio E».

They come from six different raptorial birds and see themselves as symbols for the record’s lyrical concept. The old German word Reysa originates in the late 13th century and translates to «journey», but also «passing» and «death». In this context, the listener embarks on crooked paths through time and space until the inevitable end of all things».
