Carach Angren stream new horror track “Charlie”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 1:11 PM (PST)

The twisted minds of Carach Angren are back with more music from new album Dance and Laugh Amongst the Rotten, the follow up to their creepy as all shit recent This Is No Fairytale release. Metal Injection has the new song “Charlie” HERE. It is a totally pulverizing track that could appeal to fans of Septicflesh as much as, say, Cradle Of Filth or Catamenia.

Dance and Laugh Amongst the Rotten was recorded with Peter Tägtgren (AMON AMARTH, CHILDREN OF BODOM, DIMMU BORGIR, IMMORTAL, and more) at Abyss Studio in Sweden, mastered by Jonas Kjellgren at the Black Lounge Studio (SEPTICFLESH, KATATONIA, AMORPHIS, and more) and features cover art by Costin Chioreanu (GHOST, ARCH ENEMY, AT THE GATES, and more).

Regarding the new track, the band comments: “We proudly present the next track from our upcoming album ‘Dance and Laugh amongst the Rotten’ called ‘Charlie’. It will draw you right into the first chapter of an unsettling journey, setting an ominous dark paranormal tone. ‘Charlie’ has everything and more of what you may expect from us: a darkness brought forth by unsettling haunting melodies, piercing riffs, and bloodcurdling storytelling.”

The new album will be released by Season of Mist worldwide on June 16. Pre-orders for ‘Dance and Laugh Amongst the Rotten’ are available across multiple formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop.

Album Review: Carach Angren – “This Is No Fairy Tale”

Carach Angren‘s This Is No Fairy Tale is a frightful blend of horror and metal with symphonic elements akin to a Tim Burton score. These hell-forged songs are at times vertigo inducing as well as insane. Definitely a niche band but fans of Septicflesh on a much more horror bent will thrill to it. This is a blackened and death infused updated version of Hansel and Gretel that has heroin abuse and domestic violence (“There’s No Place Like Home”) and a much sicker tone or darker flare than the recent silly, if fun, action movie “Witch Hunters” (give me Monica Bellucci in The Brothers Grimm instead any day).

Anyhow, the Netherlands based band are very tight and complete professionals here, though at times it is usually less about the song than how it feels in relation to the whole story piece. Still, there are way worse things. Many bands can’t come close to the skill of Carach Angren in heavy metal and they obviously don’t give a fuck what anyone thinks. Horns to them for their full embrace of over the edge, dark creativity to shed light on the horrors of the ill nature of deranged psychosis out there. Sickening candy addiction is a metaphor for perhaps shallow culture, the material working on many levels of the psyche. We are lonely in a forest and hunger for blood, convenience or even a deeper, damaged sense of family are all examined.
