HAR hail from Tel Aviv, Israel. They started out in 2014 as an outlet for intuitive black metal, a period which is summed up in the debut EP titled Ba’al Haov. Afterward came the addition of a second guitarist, which provided ground for a constant exploration of the black and death spectrum. Visitation, HAR’s next and current EP, summarizes this process. Restlessly roiling with a miasmic murk, HAR is where the quartet immerse themselves in the visceral stench of black flames raised to its opposite higher plane, celebrating anachronism draped in the mythos of glory.
A veritable shroud of shadowy, sulfurous decibels, HAR’s Visitation is spiritual self-combustion channeled through the resounding cavern of eternal black/death. This recording is a precursor to the band’s debut album for Blood Harvest, which should see release sometime next year. In the meantime, hear the new track “Conjure the Black Flame”:
