Versatile hard rock quartet, Coltaine, thrive on contrast. Now five records into their journey, that began in 2014, Moritz Pirmin Berg (guitarist,) Benedikt Klemens Berg (bass,) and Julia Frasch (vocals) are unremittingly forward-looking.

There is a ferocious energy and rhythmic nuance to the band that delivers devastating guitar riffs in a raw blend of progressive, darkish, neo-psychedelic rock.

Coltaine’s most recent record, like the previous albums, was recorded live in an independent environment in their hometown, Karlsruhe to catch the instinctive raw energy and was released March 31, 2022 without a label. They continue to improve their unique mixture of crafted songwriting and spacious groove on the road with a 10+ date tour this spring and fall. Coltaine have deep musical roots and grow a heavy, engaging sound, with sheer feeling in every song.

Coltaine are:
Benedikt Berg – Bass
Moritz Berg – Guitar
Amin Bouzeghaia – Drums
Julia Frasch – Vocals

карити (kariti) – (‘mourn the dead’ in church Slavonic, an antique Slavic liturgical language) is a Russian born artist based in Italy. Her debut »Covered Mirrors« was released on September 18, 2020 by the Italian label Aural Music and represents a cathartic peregrination through bereavement.

»Covered Mirrors« is a collection of 9 intimate mostly stripped down mourning folk songs with crisp fingerstyle guitar and eerie vocal harmonies. Evocative lyrics in English and Russian explore various facets of death and parting.

It was recorded and mixed on an old secluded countryside property by Lorenzo Della Rovere and mastered by Lorenzo Stecconi (Ufomammut, Zu, Grime). The record features Marco (Grime) on electric guitar on »Sky Burial« and »Anna: Requiem To Death« and Lorenzo Della Rovere on acoustic guitar on »The Baptism Of A Witch«.

Music for »The Baptism Of A Witch« is inspired by an antique Russian folk song about reincarnation »Razlilas rechka bystraya«. Lyrics for »Anna« are a loose translation of Anna Akhmatova’s poem »Requiem: To Death«. Intro is a mix of traditional Russian funeral singing.

Recommended for those who enjoy dark, somber atmospheres with profound lyrical content.
