One Man Black Metal TRYGLAV Unleashes “The EVOCATION”
+ New Album “The Ritual” Out Feb 2023
+ CD and Vinyl preorder
Tryglav’s second offering “The Ritual” will be released on February 17th, 2023 via Extreme Metal Music, a subsidiary of Rockshots Records to follow the 2019 debut “Night of Whispering Souls”.
Today, the Croatian one-man black metal band is unveiling the second single “The Evocation” in lead up to the sophomore album’s release.
“The Evocation” is a black metal track, but with a little groove and melodic to add to it.
“I think “The Evocation” is a perfect song for live performance. If you want people to go crazy and wild. This is the one. It’s pure energy. It’s catchy, groovy, and wild plus… damn I love it!” adds Tryglav.
Tryglav’s sound is aggressive, melodic, modern, and emotionally epic black metal, and fans of its predecessor will notice a maturity in sound and lyrics. The story behind the album is set in the 17th century as Tryglav explains further: “On a dark stormy night, a dying man sighed his last breath. Nothing his parents could do to save his life. A Plague Doctor was called. Four of them showed up, taking the dead body with them. The family knew that they would never see him again. What they didn’t know was that he would come back, in an unimaginable way..”
All the music on “The Ritual” were written by founder Boris Behara with vocals entrusted to vocalist Callum Wright along with mixing and mastering by producer Rocco Pezzin. The songs on the forthcoming album began their journey in 2018 as part of Behara’s love for black metal and horror imagery. After many re-compositions and re-arrangements along with interruptions from the world pandemic and his personal health with two open heart surgeries, “The Ritual” will now see the light in 2023.
“This album has seen so many difficulties, but finally, after three long years, it’s here! I hope fans will enjoy it just as much as I created it! If they liked my first album ‘Night of Whispering Souls’ they’ll definitely like this one too. The formula didn’t change too much. It’s a black metal album full of different influences. The melody is still the central part of it.”
