Mystical, icily and emotional: In the focus of the music of Harakiri For The Sky stands the dreamy, the picturesque aspect, the melancholy joy of Black Metal and the tension of Post-Rock.
 
Founded in 2011 in Vienna, Austria, the aim of Harakiri For The sky has always been to create a unique mixture of melancholy and aggression, madness and meaning, and wrapped in alternately manic/mellow songs that bridged black metal and atmospheric post-rock.

The band was initially begun as a studio project by erstwhile Bifröst member M. S. joined by vocalist/lyricist J. J., and has recently been expanded to a live lineup.
