Germ comes from the mind of Australian musician Tim Yatras. Making a name for himself previously in bands such as Austere, Grey Waters and Woods of Desolation, Germ has now become Yatras’ main focus. Combining post-black metal with everything from classical elements to electronics, to stadium rock sized choruses, Germ brings forth an atmospheric and experimental sound, as catchy as it is melancholic. Loss is the second offering from Germ and follow-up to the 2012 debut album Wish. Musically it represents the height of experimentation with the Germ sound and features the recordings furthest away from traditional black metal. Loss is now available on vinyl for the first time. It comes in a gatefold sleeve with poster and includes liner notes and all song lyrics which have not been published before.
