The track review by Islander from "No Clean Singing"
Vancouver's Kafirun impressed me with their debut album Eschaton in 2017, and thus the appearance of this next song was most welcome. For now, “The Seed, The Serpent, The Scythe” is a single, but I gather that a new album is also headed our way.
You do get twisted glimpses of the band playing in the accompanying video, but those glimpses come in the midst of nightmarish imagery. The song itself is also nightmarish, and hallucinatory. It's violent and vortextual, and the mercurial guitar arpeggios sound like a life-threatening overdose in progress — but it's a wondrous seizure in which remarkable visions spring to life.
The barbaric madness of the vocals are in keeping with the dissonant, darting madness of the guitars and the paroxysms of the rhythm section. All the performers are going full-tilt all the time, and yet the song still has a spellbinding quality, maybe because it's impossible to think of anything else when you're in its midst. A pure wild-hunt adrenaline rush that messes with your mind at the same time.

Death of the cosmic light and everything within, a dark passage that consumes all manifested energy in the universe. Death becomes the last witness of life. Death of microcosm within macrocosm. Absolute silence and nothingness. Death of the self and all reason. In this moment which is eternal yet transitory, a new and pure energy grows within the womb of chaos, and that ignites the source of a new aeon, A flame needless of air to exist. A new true god that breeds its new self, purified and sanctified in chaos without an end nor a beginning.
