Hailing from Oulu, Finland, KHANUS perform Shamanic Metal of Death by exploring the boundaries of matter, spirit, consciousness and the universe. The hypnotic, tribal quality of their riffs, the mystic melodies and the circular structure of the songs cut through the walls of perception like a dagger of enlightenment that tears the grey veil of reality, while chanting-like choirs and soprano vocals – combined with intense growls – accentuate the ritualistic feel and the spiritual vertigo the music provokes. Apparently simple and primitive, KHANUS' style is totally unique, dense and richly textured, constantly oscillating between the sheer brutality and furiousness of black-tinged death metal and a meditative state of trance that borders on psychedelia. Mixed and mastered by Cam Sinclair (Bölzer, Diocletian, Witchrist).
