“The only horrible thing in the world is ennui… That is the one sin for which there is no forgiveness.” – Oscar Wilde
Shrouded in a veil of mystery and death, Belarusian black metal entity KHANDRA are unleashing their debut full-length upon mankind. Characterized by aggressive dissonance and a haunting atmosphere, the band’s new assault recalls the black metal sound coined by bands such as MGŁA and BLAZE OF PERDITION.
KHANDRA’s first revelations were unveiled in October 2017 under the banner ‘All is of no avail,’ which subsequently merged with its successor ‘There’s no division outside existence’ in October 2018.
“Khandra” [xɐnˈdra] is a term that describes the feeling of crippling listlessness or melancholy that takes one over when in a state of boredom. However, the band’s overarching concept challenges this notion of ennui, attempting to exceed the limits of the imagination, utilizing music as a vessel of expression that has no emotional or logical confines.
