Karg’s mastermind J.J. comments: “Hey folks. With »EBBE//FLUT« we present you the last single and the first video from our new album »Resignation« which will be released this Friday.
»EBBE//FLUT« for sure is the most personal piece on the new album, as you can hear in the song, read in its lyrics and also see in the video we made for it. Contextually, the song is all about the desperation, frustration, and helplessness you feel after you have to grieve the loss of a loved person, that is indeed still alive but went on without you.
Thanks to everyone who helped me realizing this song/video. Especially to Oliver of Mbience Visuals, Christine, Georg, T-Bone, my love Nini and my sister Tina. And for sure to Sven of AOP Records as well as to Selina and Isa from E-L-R. Thanks once more for being part of this song. Stay Gold!”

Karg is the solo project of Harakiri For The Sky’s Michael V. Wahntraum (a.k.a. J.J.). His post-black metal compositions allow a deep look into the mind of the multi-instrumentalist.
Like a black metal primordial work Karg honor us every 2 years with a new album. And again V. Wahntraum holds the Austrian Metal flag high and decorates it with usual Karg sound full of despair and ambient passages paired with V. Wahntraum’s voice, which lifts »Resignation« to a new level.
»Resignation« was written and recorded between October 2020 and June 2022. Songwriting, vocals and lyrics by J.J. except the lyrics of »Generation ohne Abschied« which are a vague recitation of Wolfgang Borcherts »Die traurigen Geranien« and translated into dialect.
Private Pauls part was written by himself.
