Konkhra

—ENGLISH TO FOLLOW—
Vi er sindssygt stolte af at præsentere mægtige KONKRAH på Raise Your Horns 2020 ! Bandet er et af Danmarks grand old death metal bands, og endeligt er det lykkedes os at få dem til Bornholm.


I samarbejde med Hammerheart Records udkom bandets nyeste og ottende fuldlængde album ”Alpha and the Omega” i oktober 2019.
Musikken på ”Alpha and the Omega” taler for sig selv. Den er ekstrem men afbalanceret inden for bandets patenterede grooves og grindende metalliske rødder. Det handler om død fra de levendes perspektiv. Om magt fra de trængendes syn. Om kærlighed i hjertet fra de ensomme og fortabte. Og om håb, når alt håb er forsvundet for altid.
En del er sket siden det sidste album ”Nothing is Sacred” udkom i 2009.
Konkhra signede med Hammerheart Records i 2016, hvor både det nye album og hele deres bagkatalog bliver udgivet. Den første re-udgivelse ”Weed out the weak” fra 1997 kom i 2018 både som vinyl og digitalt.
Derudover har Konkhra spillet nogle ret bemærkelsesværdige koncerter:

  • opvarmningshows for mægtige Behemoth i Sydafrika i 2014 (15.000 kilometer fra Danmark).
  • opvarmning til Volbeats eneste koncert i Europa i 2015.
  • åbning af Danmark største metalfestival Copenhell i 2015.

Er vi klar til Konkhra til RYH 2020?? – deeeeet tror vi vist nok at vi er !!

—ENGLISH—

Konkhra are back. By signing up with mighty Hammerheart Records the bands newest and 8th full lenght release ‘Alpha and the Omega’ are in stores 2019, October.
The music speaks for itself. Extreme but balanced within the boundaries of their patented groove and grinding metal roots. Death from the perspective of the living. Power from the vantage point of the poor. Love in the hearts of the lonely and lost. And hope, when all hope is gone forever.
The artwork for ‘Alpha and the Omega’ is done by Michal ‘Xaay’ Loranc (Pestilence, Nile).
A lot has happened since their last album ‘Nothing is Sacred’ came out in 2009:
In 2016 Konkhra signed with Hammerheart Records starting up with the re-issue of ‘Weed out the
Weed’ (from 1997). The next release will be their newest album ‘Alpha and the Omega’ (2019,
October) followed by re-issues of the bands back catalog.
Konkhra played some remarkable shows during the last years:

  • support for Behemoth in South Africa in 2014.
  • support for Volbeats only show in Europa in 2015.
  • the opening of Denmarks biggest metal festival ‘Copenhell’ in 2015.
    With great help from the Christian organization Shield of the Sun and it’s minister Michael Hur
    Konkhra got themselves noticed on Youtube and in the Danish press. Michael Hur accused the band
    of stealing 500.000$ from Shield of the Sun and spending them “…on whores, drugs, speakers
    and studio time…”.

Are we ready for Konkhra at Raise Your Horns 2020 ??? We think we are !!!
