Metallurgical Fire This album drew me in right away. There are some amazing moments here. Just listen to Kissed By The Red. The drums are exceptional but the riffs keep up just fine. Outstanding. Favorite track: Kissed By The Red.

XUL//EXCELSI Ek voel vuil in die stad. Uitgeteer in die stad. Gitswart woede in die stad. Alraune is my ontmoksha medisyne, my skeur-sonder-rede, my het-van-beter-geweet, toe nie. Hou jou hande bak en skep wat van my oorbly na Alraune en die stad met my klaar is. --L.D Favorite track: Kissed By The Red.

Altars of Radness Despite what the haunting requiems of “Prelude” and the outro of “Kissed By the Red” may suggest, this is urban black metal devoid of the mysticism common in the genre, the kind that comes from the equal parts isolation and clamor that city life offers.

Choco Latte Raw, dirty, and excellent. Blew me away the first time, and continues to do so when I revisit it. Favorite track: Kissed By The Red.

Dirk Bergstrom Dirty and evil black metal without the crappy production values that you're usually forced to endure. Favorite track: Simulacra.

Nashville, Tennessee black metal band ALRAUNE have created a small buzz in their short existence through a few released demo tracks that have circulated online over the last year or so along with their recently released two-track cassette on Graceless Recordings. The people who would immerse themselves within these handful of tracks got a mere glimpse into the musically progressive dissonant occult black metal chaos that ALRAUNE unleashed, some even proclaiming ALRAUNE to be the next most promising prospect with the American black metal underground.

With their debut album “The Process Of Self-Immolation”, it will be evident that ALRAUNE will be recognized as one of the most devastating new black metal bands today. “The Process Of Self-Immolation” shall easily solidify such a claim upon immersion, an album which unleashes a striking display of visceral, twisted, and hateful portrayal of time-stretching black metal. The compositions within are complex and overwhelming yet maintain that tangibility through the band’s sense of real songwriting through this sonically melancholic and harsh soundscape.
