The Forlorn Soldier

Indonesian atmospheric and symphonic Black Metal band PURE WRATH make their DMP debut in typically poignant style with new EP “The Forlorn Soldier”, a consummate trailer for the upcoming third album.

Formed 2014 in West Java, PURE WRATH is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Januaryo Hardy, who presents here an emotive 3-track, almost-half-hour exploration of events behind a brutal incident during the ‘60s genocide in Indonesia where male members of a family were kidnapped and ‘vanished’ by a tyrannical army in the name of “so-called nationalism”.

Darker, more immersive, expansive and organic than previous work, “The Forlorn Soldier” goes deeper still – through powerful melodic cascades, impassioned vocals, skilled guest drumwork from Yurii Kononov (ex-WHITE WARD) and piano contributions by Dice Midyanti (VICTORIAN) – to an all-encompassing realm where mythic dreamscapes meet bloody thematic realism.
