Christian Kolf is known for his role in the curiously opaque Valborg but Owl has really seen Kolf particularly shine in recent years as an individual. At times as heavy as Godflesh with a darker bent, the few in the know likely felt Owl’s recent 25 minute single track ”The Last Walk” was impossible to beat. 2015 sees Zeitgeister releasing the brutal march of Aeon Cult, a three song bandcamp release that is a wall of nearly impenetrable, contorted chaos. Recommended cut “Mollusk Prince” is a great place to start being captivated by this project’s assuredly grim punch to the side of the head. Check out an older interview we did with Christian circa Into The Absolute HERE.

Death metal/experimental sightseers Owl have created one of the most compelling records of late, their all killer EP Into The Absolute.  The contrasts between harsh industrial textures, black and death metal influenced slaughter and outright freaky shit is a serious listening experience that will make you pinch yourself that so much wallop could fit on a small EP. The peaks and valleys here are quite the journey, like the band’s namesake might make in the course of a long night. Fans of Nhor, Aosoth or even Hellveto would most likely enjoy these frozen climes.

If you are unfamiliar as yet with the group, you will be thrilled. OWL was formed by Christian Kolf in 2010 and the multi-instrumentalist is joined by Patrick Schroeder on drums. Kolf also plays in German dark metal monsters Valborg and Schroeder has played in the highly acclaimed acts Centaurus-A and Klabautamann. Markus Siegenhort from German black metal shoegazers Lantlôs mixed the EP, and mastering was handled by Simon Hawemann (War From A Harlots Mouth).
