LABEL SOULSELLER RECORDS
OUR RATING 75/100
TIMEUS is the debut album from KHÔRA, available on SOULSELLER RECORDS on April 17th.
Started as a one-man project by mainman Oleg in 2012-2013, after the first demo in 2016, Kranos joined on vocals and Lars (DØDHEIMSGARD) joined on bass, both helping shape the current line-up.
Timaeus shows contributions by Vicotnik (DØDHEIMSGARD), Henri Sorvali (FINNTROLL), A. Simonen (AND OCEANS),among others.
TIMAEUS is a well-groomed album, showing different vibes, from black metal to death metal, enhanced by symphonic and progressive elements.
If in NOCEO we can find some influences from seminal jobs of EMPEROR and DIMMU BORGIR, OCCULTATION OF TIME is a good mix of black and doom metal, while in L’ANNIHILATEUR or in HARVESTING STARS we can find avant-garde visions.
This a great platter, so various, provided by a band with a great potential, maybe to be better focused to be ready for the next stage.
