Kata Sarka - "The Great Dereliction" (2011)

KATA SARKA "The Great Dereliction"

Year: 2011
Genre: Blackened Crust
Country: USA

Track List:
  1. Wearing the Rings of Saturn as a Halo
  2. Atrophy
  3. The Great Dereliction

Kata Sarka are a 4-piece band from Indianapolis, led by A.V.9, ex-member of The Electric Hellfire Club, a relatively well-known satanic industrial rock band, and several other projects. According to Encyclopaedia Metallum, their main lyrical themes are: "Insanity, Mysticism, Anti-Capitalism, Survivalism". So far they have released two demos, a split w/ Nak'ay, and most recently - a full-length album called "Existential Oblivion". The only their release I've listened to is "The Great Dereliction", and I can safely call it one of the most promising blackened crust demos of 2011.

So, why not to post it here? It isn't sanctioned by the band, but I hope it's OK because it's available for free from their bandcamp (other releases are available for streaming only). Also check out the interview with A.V.9 here.
