Something's rotten in the state of Denmark, something dark and oozing and decayed. Carrion, the debut release from new Copenhagen-based project Recitation, is comprised of a single twenty-seven minute composition that wends its way between the darkest recesses of funereal doom, creeping death, and tense, psychedelic horror. It's a lot to take in, and well worth taking the trouble.


Carrion is out on limited black vinyl on October 9 via Danish DIY label Indisciplinarian and the label’s US partner, Earsplit Distro. Stream it in its entirety below.

Recitation live dates:

9/20/2015 5E - Copenhagen, DK
10/10/2015 Stengade - Copenhagen, DK - Carrion Release Show
