about

ZIFIR have existed for more than a decade in the far confines of the underground, releasing two full-lengths and one split album with Cult Of Erinyes. Now, with their third album ready to be unleashed via Duplicate Records, the turkish two-piece have crafted a unique piece of darkness.

Skillfully blending eastern and scandinavian influences into their very own sound, ZIFIR evoke haunting imagery within the listeners mind. Having carefully honed their craftmanship over the years, they have effortlessly created an album that is diverse without losing its sense of direction.

The occasional sacral chanting adds a unique flavour whilst the organic production lends the album a timeless quality.

As opposed to the standard «hail Satan» perspective, lyrically Kingdom Of Nothingness is a condemnation of all manmade religion, seen from a turkish view. Several songs, like album highlight 769 deal with actual events, or rather horrors that took place in the name of religion.

With Kingdom Of Nothingness, ZIFIR deliver one of the truly stand-out black metal releases of 2017. The beast has awoken.

LP and CD out September 22, 2017. CD and digital versions (Bandcamp) will include exclusive bonus track.

A bleak sounding record that drips with dark atmosphere, Kingdom of Nothingness is all about a heavy, old-school black metal sound. A sound that is nasty & visceral in style but not unwilling to create rhythmic tracks.

The Relief in Disbelief & Mina open the show with a constant noisy attack that leaves you with an uneasy feeling. The constant pounding of the drums, the dark riffs & the hellish vocals go some way to ensure that this is an album that you have no choice but to take seriously.

It’s not until 769 though that Zifir really come out of their shell with a slow doomy beat that literally opens up the gates of hell with the monk-like chant that plays out in the background. A truly quality piece of black metal.

The high quality of the dark & morose black metal continues throughout the middle of the album. Common Insanity is a brief trip through a broken mind made up of fragmented rhythm, the angry intent of As Weak As Your God & gothic tones of Echoes from Nowhere. Solid & exciting black metal.

The final two tracks, The Ascension & A Crowded Nothingness see things out in moody style. The former a short & atmospheric black march while the latter cements the heaviness on show. An impressive piece of old-school black metal that makes good use of chanting & cleaner background vocals.

Turkish Black Metal duo Zifir return with their third full length album, 'Kingdom of Nothingness' and what a superbly sinister, eerie and atmospheric release it is.
...
The whole release is hugely reflective and broodingly atmospheric, bleak and raw with a slight air of morbidity to it.
...
'Kingdom of Nothingness' should appeal to even the most discerning of Black Metal addict, it's an entrancing listen.
