The Unholy year of 2005 : RORCAL is born out of a baleful fog. 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 way 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 and collaborations showing the wide range of possibilities lying within the band, various EPs, all displaying a different face of this ever evolving entity. And there’s the shows, of course. An insane lot of them. Across the whole Europe, and for the first time in 2018, in Japan. Every live manifestation revealing the unique intensity that this band can reach on stage. A complete inner experience, a moment of ecstatic exposure. Now the time has come to explore another shade of blackness. A 5th album, named MULADONA, is to be released in fall 2019. Again, the band unleashed a new chapter of its unique path. Probably the most interesting & punishing of their career.
Rorcal & Eric S. Carlson by N. Schopfer
Based on the novel of the same name written by Eric Stener Carlson, this album musically represent the horrific story of a sickly boy haunted by a doomed soul transformed into the Devil’s mule.
In close collaboration with the writer himself, each track of the album represents the various atmospheres and dynamics of the story and the horror in which it drags the audience.
The release is planned for November 15th 2019 through the awesome Swiss label HUMMUS RECORD.
We are more than thrilled with this new collaboration and being part of their impressive roster.
In collaboration with Tentacles Industries and Tape O Negative a limited tape edition will also be released.
This album is probably one of the most important release for us to date as it represents the legacy of our beloved friend and bass player, Mathias Perrin, who left us too early.
This album will our homage to Mathias as it has been entirely written with him in 2018.
