CARATHIS and SULFURE to release split album on PERSONAL RECORDS - streaming in full now

On February 4th, 2022 internationally,  Personal Records  is proud to present a special split album between  Carathis  and  Sulfure  on CD format.

The first split release in the ever-growing  Personal  catalog, this split CD between  Carathis  and  Sulfure  features two up-and-coming black metal hordes and material from both that has not seen release on CD format yet.

Carathis  are a pan-international duo hailing from Austria and Sweden. Drummer Skol is incredibly prolific, concurrently playing in the likes of Wan, SlaughterCoffin, Condemnatory, Amuleto de Calamidades, and Sweden's HellGoat among others; nearly as prolific, vocalist/guitarist Erech currently plays in Ancient Mastery, Narzissus, Golden Blood, and fellow labelmates  Grandeur , whose  Aurea Aetas  debut  Personal  released on CD to not-inconsiderable acclaim. Together, as  Carathis , the duo rip forth with raw-yet-melodic black metal that has one foot in the darkest past and the other in a differently darker present. Their tracks here comprise the  Hymns to the Tower  EP, which tells the tale of the Queen of the Tower. Expect a deceptive catchiness equally informed by punk and classic heavy metal, snarling and relentless.



Canada's  Sulfure  are almost as new of an entity, having released the EP  Neurotisme  in 2020. Hailing from the black metal hotbed of Québec, the band's four members have been active in that influential movement for years, most especially in modern torchbearers Délétère and Monarque. Here, with their half of the split being the EP  Exorde Du Vide Sulfure  continue to carry on that grand tradition. The intro title track ominously sets the stage for what follows: two succinct torrents of thick 'n' throbbing, martial-yet-melodic black metal in the immediately recognizable Québecoise style, bookended by an ominous outro. Familiar and distinct simultaneously,  Sulfure  sound massive here, evincing a power and poignancy that demands blood be shed onstage. Caveman riffs deeply rooted into misanthropy and mental illness,  Exorde Du Vide  is a shock & awe second strike.

Personal  stuff,  Personal  tastes: yet again does the label display its flair for black metal - and its broad spectrum - with this split album between  Carathis  and  Sulfure .
