Black Metal

Slip into the Acoustic Black Metal Tones of ISKANDR “Glas”

Black metal isn’t all blastbeats and cold rage directed outwards at its perceived enemies; it can have an introspective side, too. That’s what I’m hearing from ISKANDR, the solo project from Omar of Turia and Dool, who presents an acoustic side with the new single “Glas.” This composition is nothing short of captivating, with a melancholy acoustic melody weaving its way through a shimmering, ominous atmosphere punctuated with a slow, calcified heartbeat. It’s the afterword to his album Vergezicht that came out last year via Eisenwald, and you can stream the new single and listen to the album here. Today we’re excited to share the single with you below, so find a place in your heart to travel to as you listen to ISKANDR’s “Glas.”

Iskandr has steadily developed a highly personal style of triumphant medieval metal inspired by the natural surroundings and deep history of Gelderland and Nijmegen in particular. “Vergezicht” can be viewed as the zenith of this process, and “Glas” it’s afterword; making room for a future evolution in style and sound that will at first be presented as live performances starting this autumn.
