FREE KRALLICE EP IS A BLEAK SILVER LINING TO A HORRIBLE TRAGEDY
Earlier this year, Brendan Majewski, one half of Brooklyn’s Orphan, took his own life at the age of thirty-seven. That’s obviously terrible, and there’s never really anything more you can really say about something like that. It’s just horrible. End of story.
And so Krallice, one of the best black metal bands out there right now (and arguably just one of the best bands out there, period), have opted to pay homage to their fallen friend not with words, but, more appropriately, with music — specifically, with Majewski’s music. They’ve recorded a three-song EP of Orphan covers, Orphan of Sickness, which they are giving away for free. You can download it here.
Of course, I’m sure all parties involved would rather have Majewski than this tribute. But if it exposes any new fans to Krallice OR Orphan, well, that’s the closest thing to a silver lining this tragedy is ever going to get. So please check out the EP. It’s Krallice. It’s Orphan. It’s free. Do it.
