Karg, the atmospheric black metal project of Harakiri for the sky’s vocalist J. J., is preparing for release a new album, "Dornenvögel" (read Noizr Zine's album review here), which will come out on November 16 via AOP Records. Above, you can check out the lyric video for song "Heimat bist du tiefster Winter" taken from the upcoming LP.
"Heimat bist du tiefster Winter" is about the isolation one can feel being together with somebody with a cold personality. A person that is just self-absorbed and doesn’t give a fuck about how the counterpart feels. You are in company of each other but feeling terribly alone. You seek for talking and comfort but aren’t heard nor seen. It’s not living, this is like cancer. And it doesn’t even implicitly mean you don’t love each other. It’s just that love sometimes is simply not enough. As Ian Curtis once said: "Love will tear us apart", again…" — J.J.
For the new record, Karg mastermind J.J. (vocalist of Harakiri For The Sky) recruited a flood of notable musicians as guests on the record, including members from Lunar Aurora, Downfall of Gaia, Ellende, Ancst, Amer, fut and Instant Karma to participate with guest vocals on the album.

Karg was founded back in the summer of 2006 as a one-man project. Between 2010 and 2014 Karg was fully formed as a band to play gigs, formally in Germany, Austria, and Central Europe. In the years leading to 2018, Karg was a one-man project and released two previous albums. Karg’s 6th studio album Dornenvögel marks the project’s rebirth as a live band for a few special dates in 2018 and 2019.
Harakiri for the sky, featuring J. J. on vocals, released the 4th album "Arson" on February 16. Follow the link to check out its full stream and a review of the LP.
