‘You take nothing, you fear me and my life…I see through you and your lies, you take nothing’.
Ragana’s third full-length is both a more avowedly metallic album and more explicit in its anarchist politics. The emphasis remains on the adroit juxta posing and layering of hauntingly atmospheric doom with eruptions of savage, blackened hardcore, but the dark folk elements of Wash Away, while still evident are more muted. The vocal balance has also evolved, with the raging black metal screams achieving greater parity with the tender passages of clean singing. Originally released by An Out Recordings in 2017, Contraszt! Records reissued in December 2022.
