ORO - Djupets Kall

  • cover



    In the depths of the earth, far from the light, forgotten souls wander the endless tunnels and twisting passages of the underworld, forever searching for release. The total darkness conjures visions for their tortured eyes, painting images of lost loves and broken dreams, gently but cruelly opening wounds thought long healed, enticing forth fresh streams of blood, letting them drip down into the impenetrable night. Ghosts of broken hearts cry out in the silence and the forgotten ones howl in desperation and panic, stumbling on into the black, searching...always searching.

    The cries of the lost and alone, the blood from wounds of the heart falling upon unseen stone and cold water, the suffocating darkness, the crippling fear, the colossal grandeur of that hidden world below...all these things, these beautiful, terrifying things have been captured in the music of ORO, in the aching sound of solitude that is their magnificent debut album, Djupets Kall. ORO was born beneath the Kilsbergen mountains, in the shadows of the deep forests that swathe those rocky slopes in 2014 and in the brief years of their existence they have forged a sound like no other. A towering, crushing magnificence is wrapped in coils of poignant intimacy and the fact that the band choose to sing in their native tongue, allowing them to speak purely from the heart, only adds to the grim beauty of these stunningly powerful songs.

    ORO means anxiety and unrest and those feelings run through this album like a black stream, but between the towering riffs of agonized doom and overwhelming sludge there are passages of sublime beauty. Within songs like the mountainous ‘Järtecken’ whole worlds of complex emotion open up before you, the myriad shades of joy and despair laid out like sunlight through stained glass on the stone flagged floor of a silent chapel. There will be hundreds of albums released in 2019, but very few of them will possess the power, the emotional intensity, the ability to enthral and consume the listener of Djupets Kall. Albums like this are why heavy music continues to thrill and touch the hearts of those who need more than just bland entertainment. So be ready for March 1st, when Endless Winter will unveil the majesty of Djupets Kall, because ORO will take you to dark places, unravel your nerves and expose your pain - and nothing could be more life affirming and rewarding.
