Doom As Fuck: Rorcal

Swiss Drone/Doom band Rorcal offers up their latest opus Heliogabalus for FREE download.

RORCAL sees the light in Geneva (Switzerland) in 2006.
After four efforts between 2007 and 2008 and about fifty shows through Europe, the band is now ready to release its fifth block : HELIOGABALUS.

This one marks a radical change in the band’s music. Obsessively dark and heavy, this 70 minutes monolithic piece sees RORCAL sink deeper into the abysses of sound.

Somewhere between Drone and Doom, let yourself go into the bowels of the whale.

Going right out of inferno, HLGBLS is a 70 minutes song which illustrates
the decadence of the Roman emperor, Heliogabalus.
This time Rorcal is going ways further than before, with crushing doom parts,
including long hellish droning fields.
This album is scary, really aggressive, completely gloomy.
Be sure, you never heard something like that, and you never will.
If you’re looking for something really extreme, this is exactly what you need.
CD packed in special limited edition!
- CD presented in an A6 digifile, including an 8 pages color booklet.
Limited to 500 copies. Hand-assembled and hand-numbered
Booklet inserted into a black envelope. Sealed with blood-red wax.




















Review:

Rorcal, from Switzerland, present Heliogabalus , a near-perfect doom/drone album. This record is so dark that the cover can’t even be seen on a computer. Hell, the music is so dark that some may not even be able to listen it. It takes a valiant effort to listen to a 1 song album that clocks in at 70 minutes, especially an album of this caliber. Good thing Rorcal make it worth your while. Heavy,  dissonant, painful, menacing, depressing, dark, terrifying, are all words that immediately come to mind upon first listen. (Read more...)
