When Satan Maleficarium were put asleep, bass player Vixxer and screamer Necro decided to start a new outfit. Together with drummer Krilin and lead guitar player Cynic (Necro now does the rhythm guitars too), they formed Akelarre, which means something like ‘witches’ sabbath’ in the Basque language. This Mexican horde recorded some demonstrational recordings, and in their local scene, they gained a steamy live reputation.
Despite all melancholy and tristesse involved – see further – it is a pleasure to experience the Dark Aural Art created by an Australian woman, named Samantha Kempster. You might know her from her activities in (sadly defunct) Sydney-based Atmospheric Doom-Death act Myraeth (one of the better acts in their specific genre from Down Under, but unfortunately inactive since a couple of years). She has been working as well with bands like Rise Of Avernus or Inclemency, being a guest / session member on viola and / or violin.
