Today, the hotly anticipated debut album ‘Kara Ihlas‘ by Black Metal duo IMHA TARIKAT is celebrating its release on VENDETTA RECORDS! With their roots in Turkey and formed in the German Ruhr Area back in 2015 by band mastermind Ruhsuz Cellât, the power duo’s full-length debut titled ‘Kara Ihlas’, which can be translated as the ‘black purity’, drawns its influences from the Quran and a prayer to crave for salvation and mercy of the dead souls. Lyrically criticising the fatality of blind faith and the losing of identity in a dog-eat-dog society, the album is divided into four chapters and phases, with the goal of self-reflection and to motivate the listener to unfold pressures and grief, to become more honest and emotional with yourself, to mature in your own life and as a human.
“Imha Tarikat was found under the premise of expressing emotions in their most intense and passionate form possible to us. With determination so painful, fanatism so heartbreaking and destruction so pure.“ the band explains.
