Gaerea is Your New Favorite Black Metal Band


MetalSuckalos, meet Gaera. This Portugese outfit is going to be both your new favorite black metal band and your new favorite band in silly costumes. As demonstrated by their new single, “Catharsis,” the quintet have a talent for marrying black metal’s ethereal, depressive side with its angry, Satanic side, resulting in something filmic and unexpected. Imagine the lovechild Celeste and Nachtmystium and you’ll have some idea of what I’m getting at. “Catharsis” is the type of song that will make you wonder how something so ugly could be so beautiful.

And, yeah. They look like the long lost cousins of Portal, if that kind of thing matters to you. I have no idea what that symbol on their faces means, but it looks profound, bruh.

Check out “Catharsis” via the below video! Gaerea’s self-titled debut comes out June 22 on Transcending Obscurity. You can pre-order it here (physical) or here (digital).
