WOM Features – Farer – “Phanes”
After presenting Farer with their song “Asulon” from their debut album “Monad” that will be released on the 20th Of November, we now present their first video, for the song “Phanes”, that you can check out below:
About “Asulon”, the band comments: “Asulon is a very rewarding experiment with tension and release. The song is centered around a single driving note and relentless rhythms that offer no respite. A small break halfway through gives you a slight breather, right before a bleak black metal riff tightens the noose once more. Push and pull. A constant build up to the final movement. The ‘coda’ is dense, slow and ferocious. An excruciating disimprisonment. “
The band, featuring members of Ortega, was originally founded as Menhir in 2013, but chose Farer as their new moniker mid 2019, after spending two and a half years of writing and recording their debut record “Monad”. By taking time to further explore the possibilities of being a band with two bass players and the absence of a guitar, the record exhibits the bands evolution into a new entity thoroughly. Meaning, carefully crafted, drawn-out, oppressive and compelling songs.
Traversing the absolute – “Monad “is a testament to suffering. Heavy grinding riffs and deep pulsating rythms; a restless stirring. Amidst all these layers we hear the human voice as a primal wordless scream – the shock of being. We feel the dissonance of forces vying for existence and the harmony of lightless oblivion. Whispers of unfathomable truths emerge from the static.
Farer presents a tactile experience of the grim and brutal cycle of creation and destruction. There is desperation and anger, but above all a greater comprehension of the eternal patterns reverberating through flesh. The relentless driving layers of crushed sound offer no respite. In resonance is the movement of great mass. The vocals are brutally honest and raw. Complex and utterly bleak. A confrontation with the void.
Out of nothing, nothing becomes.
