Eihwaz Recordings proudly presents ‘Ar/Lume’, Ovakner’s debut release, on cassette August 31st, 2017. With themes of paganism and urban destruction at its heart, this 25-minute EP of crushing yet hypnotic death/d-beat sonics leaves an everlasting trail of memorable noise in your mind. Born from the remains of Spanish bands Machetazo, Balmog, and Banished From Inferno, the trio have coalesced their interests in classic punk, Maiden, Rush, and old death metal to create a crusty concoction of their own.
Mixed and mastered at Necromorbus Studio by Tore Stjerna (Tribulation, Destroyer666, etc) with artwork and layout by Timo Ketola (Deathspell Omega, Necros Christos, etc), ‘Ar/Lume’ evokes for vocalist/guitarist Rober ‘an old Galician legend of woods, seas and bad creatures, fueled and distorted by hypnotics and other drugs.’
This cassette version contains two bonus tracks NOT included on the CD; a new song ‘Urco’, and a cover of Eat My Fuk’s ‘Destroy the Factory’, not found on the cd version released in May. The cassette is clear with black liner, white ink imprint, and double-sided j-card; program repeated on both sides.
