Experimental black metal band ARKHETH return with a new full length
Good things take time. It was a challenge to find an equally outrageous artwork for the music of Australian black metal entity ARKHETH. We’re pleased with the results. The music of ARKHETH is unlike any other – they’re experimental in their own way without owing too much to any band per se. Listen to the creepy song in full that’s streaming on our official Bandcamp page HERE.

Sinuous, haunting and bizarre, ARKHETH’s music is extraordinary. There have been experimental black metal bands, but this is something else entirely. It’s a micro-fusion of all the different stylings the genre can encompass, brilliantly strung together in a seemingly twisted albeit seamless manner. It requires rare ingenuity to create music that is discordant and melodic at the same time. The addition of saxophone only ups the bizarre quotient and adds colour to the unhinged madness. Virtually peerless and transcending boundaries, this is black metal that is gorgeous in all its demented, intricate design.
