Rorcal - Biography


RORCAL saw the light in Geneva (Switzerland) in 2006. After four efforts released between 2007 and 2008 - namely "The Way We Are, The Way We Were, The Way We Will Be", "Ascension", "Monochrome" and "Myrra, Mordvynn, Marayaa" - and more than 100 shows played all over Europe, 2010 is marked by the band's fifth block of furious chaos: "Heliogabalus". Highly acclaimed by the public and the critics, this record marks a radical change in the band's music. Obsessively dark and heavy, this 70 minutes monolithic piece sees the five-piece sink even deeper into the abysses of sound.

After touring all over Europe and working on a couple of collaborative releases with like-minded projects like Solar Flare, Profond Barathre and Malvoisie, RORCAL unleashed a new set of music entitled "Vilagvege" in 2013. Totally unexpected, the record shows no boundaries and sits unconfortably somewhere between drone, doom and black metal, immersing the listener even deeper in the bowels of the whale.
