Dark Horizon Records proudly presents ILHALUNG, whose debut album "Falskhetens Dualitet" is released on CD/LP in conspiracy with Duplicate Records (Norway).
ILHALUNG was formed in Trondheim, Norway by seasoned players in the metal community. On their debut album, "Falskhetens Dualitet", they offer forty minutes of atmospheric yet harsh music that's both clearly rooted in classic Norwegian black metal, as well as treading its own path. While "Falskhetens Dualitet" is a fresh take on an old genre, it transcends stylistic conventions altogether in favor of building its own world, both with sonics and in terms of the lyrical messages it conveys. Seeing religious dogma and societal norms of what is acceptable and not as a spiritual cage. Perfectly backing the poetically laden critique of the inability to think for oneself, is the ever-building atmosphere, filled with both darkness and light. A poignant and understated wealth of songwriting, the album is so much more than the sum of its parts, and listening to it (preferably alone) from start to finish is recommended for the full emotional reward.
For those who worship at the altar of... Mundanus Imperium, (old)Tulus, Khold, Kvist, Bethel, Dodheimsgard, Ved Buens Ende... These are just for reference as ILHALUNG are in a class to their own!
