Australia is kind to us. Our very first release was of the Australian band The Dead
and since then we’ve released albums by bands like Depravity
, The Furor
, Illimitable Dolor
, Somnium Nox
, and signed others like The Slow Death
. Needless to say, we’ve had special support from that country. The latest band to join our roster are Vahrzaw
, who featured a track on the Transcending Obscurity 2019 label sampler
alongside other new signings such as Wardaemonic
. Here’s a sneak peek into the upcoming release of this delicious, unhinged black/death metal band.
Label owner Kunal Choksi states, “I’m thrilled to sign a band like Vahrzaw who show a ton of promise straddling the genres of death and black and infuse a bit of melody to make them stand apart from the rest. With their unique songwriting coupled with savage delivery, their new material should be even better. Watch out for this one.”
Vahrzaw members vomit forth the following proclamation, “We’re not unhappy that Vahrzaw have signed to Transcending Obscurity Records. After dealing with the incompetence of other labels, it’ll be refreshing to unleash our next opus on a label as highly regarded & professional as Transcending Obscurity. ‘The Trembling Voices of Conquered Men’ will be our most ambitious and experimental project to date, but will retain the aggressive blackened death metal we’re known for. Hails from Australia.”
GVD: Bass & Vocals
Artist: Alex Morkh Shadrin of Nether Temple Design (Paganizer, Interment).
Australian black / death trio Vahrzaw have been around for about 32 year now. Their two full length releases ‘Defiant’ (2009) and ‘Twin Suns & Wolves’ Tongues’ (2014) exhibit some face melting extreme metal replete with venomous vocals and screaming guitar solos. The band’s second full length has now been picked up by Blood Harvest records for a reissue, thus adding yet another ungodly act to their stellar roster. The band is currently getting ready to record their third full length and while you wait for the new record, you can check out ‘Twin Suns & Wolves’ Tongues’ in it’s entirety below.
Also included is an interview we conducted with Vahrzaw, where the band talks about the new album, their evolution over the years, the Australian scene and much more.
