ACÂRASH, whose lineup comprises Sølve Sæther on drums, Lukas Paulsen on guitars and Anlov P. Mathiesen on bass and vocals, was formed in Oslo in the fall of 2016, and is rooted in the 80s and 90s avant-garde rockers THE VOID . With members hailing from bands such as LONELY KAMEL, ZECTION8, FAUSTUS and DEEP REST, ACÂRASH is a band whose influences are varied, and which embraces tradition, yet manages to forge an identity all of its own.
By blending hard rock, doom and black metal, ACÂRASH has succeeded in forming a sound in which esoteric poetry and ritualistic contemplation are central to the music, and mirror the nuances in both sound and musical contrasts.
With “In Chaos Becrowned”, ACÂRASH has shown an ability to reinvent, whilst at the same time preserve, in order to deliver a record that explores and develops the boundaries of rock and metal, and naturally alternates between raw catchiness, dark introspection, and progressive playfulness.
