Hraun channels the essence of 90s goth without its usual pathos, early doom death and black metal into something peculiarly unique.
The two Germans’ debut full-length is special not only due to its crossover potential but also because it demonstrates traditional songwriting at its best, irrespective of genre. Fittingly, the duo tackles a broad thematic spectrum in their lyrics, ranging from extreme everyday situations to psychological scenarios. Whether addressing supernatural powers like in the opening video track ‘Occult Blood’ or insurmountable pain as in ‘Take Back The Light’, which harks back to My Dying Bride’s violin elegies: “Black Molten Essence” is both what the title suggests and much, much more.
