Finland’s KHANUS introduced themselves to the metal audience in 2016 with the “Rites Of Fire” EP, a piece of shamanic metal of death perfectly underlining the ritualistic feel and the spiritual qualities of their music. Two years later, the band returned with its first full-length album, “Flammarion”, a monumental achievement that confirms the uniqueness of their proposal (Release date was 20.7.2018 for CD, MC & Digital and 1.9.2018 for LP edition. Deluxe MC edition was released by KHANUS themselves.
CD & LP editions were released by I, Voidhanger Records).
KHANUS’ music oscillates between trance-inducing melodies almost bordering on hypnotic psychedelia and the primitive pulse of black/death metal, all seen through a distorting avant-garde lens that exalts the weirdness of the style without sacrificing brutality and aggressiveness. Together with LordT’s powerful drumming, Sovereign’s theatrical growls and nervous guitar playing incarnate the primordial side of KHANUS, while Meltiis’ majestic soprano choirs play a more spiritual chord, adding a distinctive touch to the music, always incredibly dense and richly textured.
