Arallu from Israel are imbibing their Middle-Eastern influences and channeling the same using the black metal template that they’ve been trying to perfect for over two decades. Not unlike their label mates in Rudra, they’re forging a unique sound replete with traditional instruments like Saz and Darbuka, and exhibiting a penchant for the thrashy variant of the style. Faster, tighter and more potent than ever before, Six bears the insignia of the band’s progress over the years and their culmination in a release that might change their fortunes finally.
Six will be released on the Indian metal label Transcending Obscurity Records and is available for pre-order through here. Listen to the exclusive premiere of the track ‘Possessed by the Sleep’ here:
