Indie Recordings are proud to announce the signing of Kråke! Check out Kråke's first single "And A Colder Breed" on Indie Recordings here!
Original founders and brothers, Dreugh and Beist, conceived Kråke as an idea already in 2007. From the brothers hailing from Kopervik on the west coast of Norway the idea was to create the best possible symphonic & atmospheric black metal they could possibly achieve. It took 5 years in the making, but the result is nothing short of impressing.
Kråke is Norwegian for 'crow', an animal known as a mythical creature throughout history and cultures especially as a herald of woe, a sign of death, but also wisdom.
Inspired by this the band strives to compose music that covers a wide variety of emotions, from anger and pride to anguish and despair. Inspiration is also sought from any source better enabling them to produce the music they want to create, be it classical and soundtrack music, literature and nature imagery. The lyrical themes are based around the darker aspects of life and the certainty of death, as for the actual music you will find links to bands like Dimmu Borgir, Old Man's Child, Bal-Sagoth and even bands like Type O Negative.
