French pagan black metallers Tan Kozh premiere the new track Troisième Fonction” at heavily trafficked web-portal The track hails from the band’s forthcoming debut album, Lignages Oubliés, set for international release on November 15th via Antiq. Hear Tan Kozh‘s “Troisième Fonction” in its entirety exclusively HERE.

Tan Kozh was created by Sven (Himinbjorg, Belenos, Möhrkvlth, Ar Bard) in 2015. After composing an album, Yamnah (Belenos) helped him with the lyrics, and they were then joined by Decay (ex-Way to End) on drums, Barved (ex-Les Chants De Nihil) on guitar, and Introspect (Introspect, ex- Les Chants De Nihil) on bass. The recording is fully redone, with playing on a real drum set and with various additions by all members. The band starts concerts in 2018.

The first Tan Kozh album, Lignages Oubliés, is a pagan black metal album inspired by ancient Indo-European myths. The warlike rhythms switch to frenetic blastbeats and some more contemplative passages, including acoustic guitar and fretless bass. The first part of the album contains visions of the past and future wars and destruction, with in the background the awakening of ancient pagan gods and the eternal turn of the wheel of time; the second part of the album is made of prayers addressed directly to ancient gods.

Antiq is a label dedicated to the fully coherent concept of making music through sound, image, video, and attitude. They have been putting their entire existence into it since 2009. Over the years, Antiq have been identified as producers of not only perfectly coherent lyrics and themes through music, but also conceptual art and, of course, the manufacturing of beautiful objects. The label tries as much as it can to work with French creators, and if possible, with the smallest and most serious structures.
