In February of next year, I, Voidhanger Records will be releasing the third album (and the first on this label) by the one-man German black metal project known as Voidcraeft. Its title is Ἕβελ and it’s unusual in many respects, not the least of which is that all of the lyrics are in either Biblical Hebrew or Koine Greek. There’s a reason for that, which we’ll come to in a moment, but here’s the main point of this post: We’re giving you the chance to listen to two songs from the album, the English translations of which are “I Am Nothing” and “Under the Sun“.
For people who follow our site (religiously), Voidcraeft will not be a new name. Our man Andy Synn featured the band in a post here in October, recommending the music to fans of Deathspell Omega, Ævangelist, and Portal, while noting the experimental nature of the music and its creator’s tradition of writing his own self-critical analysis of his prodigious output.
