The two prophets collected under the banner of Misanthur herald the fall and spiritual putridity of humanity by creating art resonating fully with pain, anxiety and degradation. Founded in Częstochowa, Poland one night in 2015 by Hellscythe and Draugr, Misanthur begun to take form.
Inspired by both metal and non-metal genres, Misanthur merges trance percussion, heartbreaking bass, crushing guitars and hellish vocals with (post)apocalyptic ambient landscapes and noise to create its own oeuvre and paint the stories and scenery of mundane spiritual wastelands.
The band’s debut record Ephemeris – set for release through the Season of Mist label on October 15th – was written with the aim of capturing the concept of personal degradation, one’s own journey into the deepest corners of consciousness, one’s own weaknesses, fears, and monsters hidden in the ego and identity, in the context of the fragility and evanescent nature of human life.
The only constant thing is change. The only sure thing is entropy.
