SHADOW RECORDS is proud to present MEPHORASH's highly anticipated fifth album, Krystl-AH. With a wealth of underground experience and an ever-restless but always-tactical manner of making music, their ascent up the ranks of international black metal has been decisive and well-earned. Although their catalog since their formation in 2010 has always been of sterling quality, it was 2019's aforementioned Shem Ha Mephorash - a literally MASSIVE album at 74 minutes, released to widespread acclaim by SHADOW RECORDS - where MEPHORASH dramatically claimed their throne. And upon evidence of the forthcoming Krystl-AH, they're not likely to relinquish that throne any time soon.

Another literally massive album, the 68-minute Krystl-AH moves with an ominous beauty - breathtaking, brilliant, and yet suggesting vast, frightening mysteries beyond its wide-ranging scope. A suitably vast army of damned angels serve as the backing choir to these seven incredibly epic compositions; soul-stirring leads rise and fall with grace, while sonic spaces open up and deftly subtle layers of strings, synths, and acoustic guitars flesh out this almost sensual experience - nothing ever in a rush to find its destination, only ever the feeling of being IN THE MOMENT, patient and complete. This soundfield alone serves a distinct backdrop separating MEPHORASH from conventional "black metal," far closer to a classical score but no doubt infused with the central energies of true religious black metal. It's not incorrect to suggest that one could get lost in any one of these epics - in fact, two top 10 minutes each - but it's a journey that infinitely rewards the intrepid and inquisitive, those who wish to surpass their personal Rubicon to receive illumination...and damnation.
