With their fourth full-length album “Demoniac Ethics” having hit the streets in January of this year on Norway’s Duplicate Records, Black Metallers ZIFIR find themselves, as do so many bands, in the “post-release / pre-new album stage”. But, unlike those bands who remain dormant before they begin work on their next opus, ZIFIR have decided to release a series of videos of ambient tracks that the band would not necessarily include on an album, but which, nevertheless, represent an aspect of the band, and the state of mind of its members at any given time.
The first in the series is a piece entitled “Illet“, a dark, malevolent, soundtrack, that reflects the current Pandemic situation in which humanity finds itself.
The video for “Illet” can be seen and heard on YouTube at https://youtu.be/Dz7VlJUgN1w
Formed in 2006 by Onur Önok and O.S., today’ s lineup is composed on Önok on Vocals and Guitars, Nursuz on Drums and Ilgar on Bass. With lyrical themes based around the subjects of philosophy, anti-religion and nihilism, ZIFIR embodies the spirit of a band whose Black Metal vision is clear and uncompromising.
