Khepra – Cosmology Divine

Label: Naturmacht / Rain Without End Records    Release: 10.9.2016

Occasionally you stumble over a more or less unknown release from an even more unknown band, but this release really captures you – and this is the case here with Khepra from Turkey and their debut album  Cosmology Divine.

I cannot even clearly define what their genre is – instead, associations with
Hollenthon’s Domus Mundi, the early Dimmu Borgir, Therion, Powerwolf or even the Czech Black Metal veterans Root and their legendary album “The Book” pop up. And I am only listening to the opener Atra Hasis yet – a track that surely will blow you away.

This kind of high quality music is maintained throughout the album – in between some calmer tracks, a dose of Folklore and traditional Turkish instruments add even more variety into the mix. The lyrics deal with science, myth and folklore. And all I can add is that if you like Melodic Death, Black / Symphonic Metal or one of those bands mentioned, you will surely enjoy Khepra.

And there’s more: supporting Metalheads in Turkey surely annoys Erdogan – so buy this CD!

reckless and merciless dictator, so KNEEL! In other words, editor-in-chief, translator, website and ad admin, "Jane of all trades" - - - addicted to books (everything between Lord Of The Rings & quantum physics) and music, mainly Metal made in Finland. Furthermore, there's painting, drawing, movies, theater... so you can expect some variety on this website too. MA Master of Arts, English and American studies & Media communication = completed two full studies parallel within 5 years; very proud of my achievement - a bit later in life thanks to a scholarship - as a working class girl in a highlyconservative-romancatholic nation...
