About

RORCAL is born out of a baleful fog in 2005. The common aim shared by the 5 Swiss fellows has always been clear: reaching the deepest depths of darkness, searching a way to express the unnamable. This path has taken multiple shapes, from slowest forms of sonic punishment to cathartic expression of sound’s malevolence. The result is now well known, 4 albums exploring all the shades of extreme music, numerous splits, collaborations & EPs, all displaying a new face of this ever evolving entity. In November 2019 the band releases album n°5 MULADONA. But due to the global pandemic the band is forced to cancel all its upcoming shows and decide to spend this constrained pause writing new material. The idea to collaborate with Bruno aka EARTHFLESH, which was RORCAL’s original bass player, soon appears as evidence. WITCHCOVEN merges his insanely powerful harsh noise & drones with the most extreme side of the quintet, thus giving birth to two new infernal pieces.

About WITCH COVEN

For this new release, black metal/doom quintet RORCAL teams up with malevolent sound mistreator EARTHFLESH to give birth to the ugliest, darkest & roughest tracks of its career. WITCHCOVEN displays two long & complex songs best described as nightmares of dreadful horror. The harsh noise & deep cracklings provided by Bruno (who happens to be Rorcal’s original bass player) and his new project Earthflesh, creates a whole new level of deepness in the music and supplements the band’s violent take on doomy black metal in a brand new way. The result, perpetually oscillating between crawling doom, massive drone, raw black metal & pure noise, is as thick as it is terrifying. In the end, the symbiosis between the two entities is utterly breathtaking.
