Suitable to the bands name, which means „Hermit“ in the dutch language, KLUIZENAER was conjured into existence as FFF’s solo endeavor, putting forth abstract sound collages of blackened ambient and noise. After roaming these forsaken planes in solitude for some years FFF. was joined by JJJ. on Drums and MMM. On guitar, thus evolving into a three-piece black metal band, active in the Berlin area.
This line up brought forth KLUIZENAER’s MMXVIII five track EP “DAS UNGEBROCHENE SCHWEIGEN“ (The Unbroken Silence). Here the listener Is taken on a journey through lightless hellscapes, with KLUIZENAER acting as Vergil, guiding through freezing planes and sulphurous pits, which are born from sinister ambience and bleak eremitic Black Metal.
At the end of the same year, the band steps back into the shadows to undergo metamorphosis after MMM. decides to part from the project. Kluizenaer once again shed its skin and manifested anew in MMXIX, now featuring LLL. On guitar. Going through the alchemical process of writing, discarding, re-writing, distilling, and refining substance, The group started purifying the material that would eventually become their first full length: “EIN ABBILD DER LEERE”. (A depiction of emptiness).
Luring in with abstract sound arrangements, soon building up to fulminant drones of nearly orchestral magnitude, Then immersing in towering walls of abysmal guitars, soaring high in melancholic beauty, then crushing downward with cyclopean force, burying every last reminiscence light beneath its weight. Thundering blast beats rain down through otherworldly nebulae, then clash into pitch-black waters where they cast rushing, rhythmic waves of mid-tempo, or slowly freeze into monstrous icebergs along passages of pulsating doom.
Echoing back from the walls of collapsing cathedrals and abandoned throne rooms comes a magnitude of desperate screeches, furious shouting, vicious screams, at times even solemn singing and cavernous growls. Though being spewn forth with aggression and malice, the voices mutually recite thoughtfully worded poetry, contemplating transience, insignificance, desolation and spite. “EIN ABBILD DER LEERE”, a depiction of emptiness sculpted from sound, image and emotion. A graven idol, cast into form in collaboration between Wolves of Hades and BreathSunBoneBlood Records.
