Rorcal: Creon

Album Review

Sludgy Swiss doom crew unleash some royal thunder

Subtlety isn’t a word in Rorcal’s vocabulary, and the follow-up to 2013’s Világvége is a fiery, apocalyptic concept dedicated to the deaths of four icons of Greek mythology.

The Swiss outfit approach Creon (named for the ruler of Thebes in ancient Greece) with a much more dramatic and doomed flair than on its predecessor, taking four separate epic movements to tell their story, rather than the shorter and punchier omens that made up Világvége. It’s a tactic that suits them well, and this different path on their fourth full-length allows the band to showcase their ability to evolve with time.
