Asarhaddon – “Reysa”
Geisterasche Organisation
29 February 2020

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. The tracks are represented by six skulls on the cover, which extend the concept of death and nature in the next chapter of their musical cycle. 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.
