Black Metal (GER)

Blood Torrent
Blood Torrent - Blut ist der Ursprung und das Geheimnis des Lebens und des Todes. Blut bedeutet Geburt und Verwandlung. Opfer und Tod. So lange es fließt, ist jegliche Existenz in ständiger Bewegung. Blood Torrent wurde im Jahr 2005 von H.A.V.O.C und Rape gegründet. Nach diversen Produktionen in Eigenregie, erschien im Jahr 2022 ihr Album "Void Universe" über Trollzorn Records.

Als Fans der ersten Welle des Black Metals, Heavy Metals und Hard Rock der 70er und 80er Jahre entwickelte die Band ihren ganz eigenen Musikstil: Black Metal mit progressiven Elementen und Einflüssen des klassischen Hardrocks & Punks.

Lyrisch verschreibt sich Blood Torrent Elementen und Themen verschiedener Künstler und Autoren wie Leonardo Da Vinci oder George Orwell und thematisiert existenzielle Theorie, Misanthropie, Subversion, sozialkritische Inhalte, die Psyche des Menschen und Themen wie Kollaps und Apokalypse sowie Verfall und Transformation. Mit "Void Universe" liefert die Band ein rotziges Black Metal Album ab, das nicht glatt und aufpoliert klingen sollte. Gitarren und Schlagzeug wurden bei der Produktion so Orginalgetreu wie möglich belassen.

Blood Torrent was founded in 2005. The lineup quickly switched to a 5-man band and from time to time, there were some lineup changes. However, H.A.V.O.C and EREBOS were consistent members of the band. During all this time there was always active songwriting and performances with genre greats such as Dark Fortress, Eisregen, Possessed or 1349. As fans of the first wave of black metal, heavy metal and hard rock of the 70s and 80s, the band members developed their own individual style of music: black metal with progressive elements and influences of classic hard rock and punk.

The name is derived from the idea that Blood is the secret and origin of life and death. Blood means birth and transformation. Sacrifice and death. As long as blood flows, Existence is in flux. Lyrically, the songs contain elements and themes from various artists and authors such as Leonardo Da Vinci or George Orwell and address existential theory, misanthropy, subversion, social and system critical content and also deals with topics such as mental illnesses or the relationship between humanity and nature.

Void Universe is not a concept album itself. However, within the lyrics on Album, there is a recurring theme: It is about the argument of self-extinction within the Fermi paradox. It raises the question of what would happen if society could start again. And according to the argument of self-extinction, every high culture will always self-destruct from a certain point on. No matter how often it could start over. It is a preprogrammed collapse of civilizations and appears to be an irrefutable law of nature. This principle is particularly important to mankind. And in any case, it shows that the whole cosmos is changing. Transformation is also a big topic in the lyrics f.e. The Cosmic Breakdown or Decay and Transformation.
