The world of Shylmagoghnar is one that thrives on opposites: raw soundscapes meet pure elegy, and destruction gives way to harmony. The band has perfected a unique sound of their own that made listeners hold their breath in awe starting with their exceptional debut Emergence in 2014. Four years later the journey finally continues with their second full-length effort, Transience. Atmospheric black metal and harsh vocals burst into progressive guitar melodies deeply rooted in melodic death metal creating a rather melancholic and yet playful set-up indulging in themes of our existence in all its monumental beauty and horrible chasms. The Dutch duo turned Transcience into a multi-faceted and mature genre highlight that manages to make tristesse glimmer in strange colors!
