HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY Unveil New Re-Recorded Track “Homecoming: Denied” From ‘Aokigahara MMXXII’

On December 9th, post black metal pioneers HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY will launch the re-recordings of their two first albums “Harakiri For The Sky” and “Aokigahara”. As they have never been fully happy with the production of these two early albums, the Austrian duo decided to take a deep dive into their past for their 10th band anniversary and revive them as “MMXXII Editions”, together with longtime collaborator Krimh on drums and a re-designed cover artwork by Art Of Maquenda.

The first vinyl colors are already sold out at the AOP shop and the music video of the first single ‘Mad World’ almost crossed 500.000 views by now, so today, the band presents one of the most intensive tracks of their second album: ‘Homecoming: Denied’.

Vocalist J.J. comments:
“What I remember most when I think back on working on “Homecoming: Denied!” is that I wrote such long text phrases for the first part that I had to sing it double-time. That didn’t sound that great, so Matthias suggested me to cut them in half and do them half tempo. That worked perfectly and seems the perfect concord of the song to me. When I first heard the instrumental of the song I wasn’t sure if I like it as much as I liked the other songs of “Aokigahara”. But after we changed the lyrics of the first part, the rest of the song caught me as well and still does everytime when we play it live so many years later.”
