And previous track, 'Crucible of Light', here:
It is rare that you come across a debut album so starkly beautiful and intensely powerful as Asira’s first release, Efference. A vehement disregard for genre conventions, Efference is a stunning mixture of blues, progressive metal, post-blackened metal and ambience.
Such perfectly melded contradictions capture the essence of Efference. For fans of Alcest, Opeth, Ulver, Anathema, and more, this is an album for all fans of forward thinking heavy music. Post-genre, moving beyond convention.
Asira are a brand new band, with no past. A blank slate for the listener to draw their own conclusions, the band are launching their career with the release of Efference.
