KARG - Sixth Full-Length Out In November, New Video Premiered Online

Austrian atmospheric black metal project Karg has released a brand new music video for the track “Heimat Bist Du Tiefster Winter”. The track is found on the band’s long awaited new album, Dornenvögel, that’s due out on 16th November via AOP Records.
For the new album, Karg mastermind J.J. (vocalist of Harakiri For The Sky) recruited a flood of notable musicians as guests on the record, including members from Lunar Aurora, Downfall Of Gaia, Ellende, Ancst, Amer, Fut and Instant Karma to participate with guest vocals on the album.
Dornenvögel is the project’s most diverse album written to date. It’s a steady up and down of negative and melancholic feelings and short glimpses of hope, recited in a quite hysteric way. Every song is a separate, private “Dornenvogel” (which is a metaphor in this connection) to Karg, in which every song is a different chapter and collection of dramas, one followed by the other.
Karg was founded back in the summer of 2006 as a one-man project. Between 2010 and 2014 Karg was fully formed as a band to play gigs, formally in Germany, Austria and Central Europe. In the years leading to 2018, Karg was a one-man project and released two previous albums. Karg’s sixth studio album Dornenvögel marks the project’s rebirth as a live band for a few special dates in 2018 and 2019.
The musical style of Karg is a furious, hysteric mixture of atmospheric black metal and post-rock, with influences also from grunge, shoegaze and post-punk. Lyrically, Karg was always about the more melancholic side of life, such as broken relationships, lost love, estrangement, drug abuse, loss or suicidal thoughts and depression. In contrast to many other bands Karg’s lyrics are as equally important as its music.
J.J. comments about the new video and the track: ““Heimat Bist Du Tiefster Winter” is about the isolation one can feel being together with somebody with a cold personality. A person that is just self-absorbed and doesn’t give a fuck about how the counterpart feels. You are in company of each other but feeling terribly alone. You seek for talking and comfort but aren’t heard nor seen. It’s not living, this is like cancer. And it doesn’t even implicitly mean you don’t love each other. It’s just that love sometimes is simply not enough. As Ian Curtis once said: “Love will tear us apart,” again...” Watch the video directed by Andreas J. Borsodi and listen to “Heimat Bist Du Tiefster Winter” which features guest vocalist Alex of Amer in the player below. Link
