Shaarimoth

Formed in 2004, with origins back to 1998 - Shaarimoth was born and with it new incantations of darkness, death, and destruction.

At its core, the music is both dark and ecstatic, and continues to be reminiscent of such diverse influences as Morbid Angel, Behemoth, and Nile.

Shaarimoth is not music, it is ritual. A sonic construct created to manifest Dark Currents by the means of music.

A Black Flame burning strong in the middle of a world of cosmic darkness. Shaarimoth echoes the distant chants that calls out to those of the Dark Blood, to those who dare to rebel, to seek, to struggle, to overcome, and to liberate.

The Devil And The Almighty Blues

When the 60's turned into the 70's there was a musical crossroads. The American blues had had it's run with teens on both sides of the Atlantic long enough so that the blues-offspring named rock'n'roll had to expand or die. It did not die, it expanded in all kinds of directions! And right there in the crossroads between blues-based rock and all the world's other sub-genres of rock, something happened to the blues. The format got experimented with, expanded and almost made unrecognizable. But at the same time the roots to the original 'real' blues was never lost. Where Peter Green left Fleetwood Mac in 1970 with the track "Green Manalishi", where Johnny Winter stretched his musical legs, where ZZ Top bought Marshall full stacks and shot from the hip, and last but not least where the legend himself, Muddy Waters, stretched the limits of that was 'legal' with the album "Electric Mud". And not to forget Hendrix, Free Canned Heat and the rest of the gang from the Woodstock-era. The result was a highly electric musical revolution, where e.g. the newly born genre hard rock walked hand in hand with traditional delta blues.
