Release date: April 17, 2020
Goddamn ambitious debut album and a captivating pathway through all realms of extreme-metal and extreme-experimental speheres. Whatever that means. It's just great someone even dares to step into these territories!
According to the press release, "KHÔRA strives to manifest the limits of Extreme Metal and produce both ethereal and ferocious tunes. After the first demo in 2016, Kranos joined on vocals and Lars joined on bass, both helping shape the core line-up.
Featuring an amazing artwork by Sergey Shenderovsky and guest contributions by Vicotnik (DODHEIMSGARD), Henri Sorvali (FINNTROLL), A. Simonen (AND OCEANS) and many others, "Timaeus" is a carefully-crafted album which consists of black metal to death metal to symphonic and progressive elements. It was recorded between 2017 and 2019 and follows the theme of the creation of the universe by three omnipotent entities, loosely based on Plato’s dialogue of the same name."
