On The Endless Howling Abyss, DRAGKHAR have turned up the intensity and unleashed violence in its most lethal form. The forthcoming EP is a harrowing journey through 20 minutes of pure Hell, inspired still by the classic fires of ABHORRENCE and AMORPHIS, but now flavored by an increasing influence from the oldest days of the Greek Black and Death Metal scenes, as well as MOLESTED, MERCYFUL FATE, and more.
1. Traversing the Abyss
2. Swallowed by the Dark
3. Eternal Disintegration (Of The Body And Of The Mind)
4. Fading into Emptiness
Draghkar was formed in 2016 by BW as an outlet for his love of death metal. Originally a tribute to the elder days of the Finnish death metal scene, they put out their first demo on cassette with Witchhammer Productions from Thailand in 2017. It was re-released by Blood Harvest Records later that year. After a series of lineup changes, Draghkar released a split with Desekryptor in the earlier half of 2018 and have come back now with their most ambitious and original output to date, a four track EP entitled The Endless Howling Abyss.
