«We are honored to announce that Austrian aark metal outfit KRrankeheit have signed a licensing deal with Wormholedeath for their album Gargantua, which will be released on September 30th, 2022».

After four years, two of them dominated by a pandemic and a challenging anniversary, with internal band restructuring, Krankheit are back with a new album. Gargantua, the successor to the third work Zerberus, sings about the dark sides and abysses in a typical Krankheit manner and forms a mirror of the current events of our contemporary history.

It is named after the character Gargantua from the novels by François Rabelais. An insatiable giant who vomits in greed and gluttony on the people and depicts a pastiche of them. Krankheit manage to stay true to their trademarks and at the same time venture into new musical realms. Martially driving guitar riffs as in Kommunikation reflect the usual catchy level of hardness of the band. Lyrically, the most important and most burning topic of all at the moment is put to the test here in the programmatically titled piece. Songs like Gargantua and Müll show that it’s becoming even more aggressive in general, which are interspersed with blast beats and shredding guitars.

With Bett Des Prokrustes and Ave Maria Krankheit show again that they are masters of their craft and plant themselves excellently in well-known classical compositions. The symbiosis between classic and dark metal is extensively celebrated and driven to extremes by Neid with its brutal ending. There are bluesy touches in Exorzist, to which Andres Vargas, singer of the black metal band Thy Antichrist, lends his haunting voice. The limits of the interpersonal relationship demons get a new face here. Gargantua takes the creation of Krankheit to the next level and prepares the ground for an eventful and complex future.

Founded in 2011, the Austrian dark metal band KRrnakheit are gradually working their way into the metal/goth scene. It is characteristic of the band’s style to resurrect old pieces and melodies from bygone eras (e.g. Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, etc.) and to combine them with the very own Krankheit sound.

«The abstract, zombie-like performance and the scary, menacing appearance of the musicians immediately create a very unique atmosphere», Musikmag.de (GER)

About Ulf Backstrøm (7438 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
