MAHR - Antelux CD
The debut offering from Mahr, a faceless entity associated with the Prava Kollektiv, which includes lablemates Arkhtinn and Voidsphere. Mahr’s music is as atmospheric as their counterparts, but where other entities evoke images of a wide open cosmos, Mahr’s Antelux channels the feeling of being stuck at the most lightless parts of the ocean floor. Combining the heaviest parts of black, death, and doom metal with ghostly keyboards and dense, reverb soaked production, Antelux is a hulking mass of an album, one that evokes at times a real sense of ominous dread in the listener. This is music that really transports you somewhere, that grabs you and doesn’t let go.
