Revival Booking & Doomstar Bookings presents:
Behind black shrouds of obscurity and desolation, the men of GAEREA deliver their odes in cascading maelstroms of aggression and beauty. Emerging from the age of pandemic to whatever awaits humanity next, the Portuguese horde remains on the frontlines of the next generation of extreme metal. With an EP and two albums to their name, GAEREA has rapidly distinguished themselves from the thousands of bands toiling away in the underground. Brewing their cauldron of sound from a recipe of pounding black-metal blast mixed with a touch of harrowed, reflective longing, many devotees of the darkened arts have flocked to their banner. With the emergence of third full-length album Mirage, those numbers are sure to grow.
If existential dread could be turned into sound it’s this, GAEREA have carved their own philosophical path through its stygian tunnels. It isn’t Satan, demons, death, or even suicide that is waiting for us there. “What if people finally reached their goal,” he posits, “to end their suffering, and instead of dying they find themselves in a new reality, lost in a big city they were once a part of – they don’t know if anyone else is still alive. They are alone inside their own world.” This theme of being alone in a world full of familiar scenes, unable to end things and unable to reach anyone else, might well terrify the listener more effectively than any glimpse into the imagined hellscapes of our nightmares. Being isolated in your own world is the real nightmare, and GAEREA strum the chords of this horror with nuance and a miserable grace.
The Undying Mirage Shall march once again over Europe this Summer! In June, the Vortex Society will hunt several new Countries alongside a selection of massive Festivals. 15 Mind bending Nights of Cathartic Horror Soundscapes await. Join us!
TAR released their critically acclaimed debut album "As If We Were Never Here" just before the pandemic struck the world. With roots from the former band Eldrimner, blended with bold new influences, TAR has created something unique within the metal scene.
Listeners can expect to hear progressive riffs mixed with melancholy, all gathered in a gloomy narrative that embraces our human race in this dark atmosphere.
TAR is currently in the studio recording their second full-length album.
