Since its inception in 2006, Rorcal has always sought pitch black darkness. The means to reach it have been diverse but share one constant: extremity. From the insane heaviness of their debuts, to the blasting dissonant malevolence they display on their recent albums, their takes on doom, black metal, industrial haunting soundscapes, drone & noise have all shown a strong & unique identity. After 5 full lengths and numerous collaborative splits, the band is about to release “Silence”, a new album on which the 5 musicians prove their constant dedication to the dark arts.
Rorcal by N. Schopfer
Hope is a chimera. It is an illusion that prevents us from embracing an obvious fact however luminous in its inevitability: we will soon be no more. There is no longer any horizon for us, nor any tomorrow.
Humanity is inexorably running towards its loss and will precipitate in its wake everything that made the world. No other trajectory is taking shape, or sketching out. There is nothing left to be saved. We will plunge into an abyss of oblivion, into this great twilight rising before us.
And when facing the certainty of collapse, there is nothing more hideous, more degrading, than hope. It is a lie. It blinds us, it suffocates us. It is a myth to destroy. Only then will we be able to accept the worst in everything. And cherish it.
Thus, when the very idea of hope finally disappears, only SILENCE remains.
