Sounds | Suldusk - Mythical Creatures

Terwijl de vorige single een wilde blend aan genres kende, houdt de Australische band het deze keer op het element dark folk. Mythical Creatures is een rustig nummer, akoestisch ingespeeld en gezongen met een engelenstem. Mooi en vooral niet saai. Een erg leuk contrast met de vorige single.

Anthesis is op 1 maart 2024 verschenen via Napalm Records.

Ter Info

"Mythical Creatures is a song dedicated to those brave folk who are cutting their own path. 

The clip was directed by Joe Betros and features headpiece and other incredible art by The Obtainery - an artist who creates designs from recycled materials and nature.“

Following their much acclaimed 2019 debut album, Lunar Falls - an album that stunned listeners and international press alike, Anthesis continues where SULDUSK left off with their transfixing first full-length, yet proves musically more complex. The album will take you into a gloomy, magical world where the up-and coming act combines a high variety of dark and extreme sounds within its very own sonic universe.


While SULDUSK started as a one-woman project founded by the highly talented Emily Highfield, for the upcoming album, she recruited incredibly talented musicians to help elevate the vision of their acoustic-based music to the level of an intense, powerful and heavy record. On Anthesis, SULDUSK shines with dark folk, blackgaze, post-rock, prog, doom and even black metal elements - flowing together to create one very unique synthesis of sound. Emily’s voice is a strong highlight, impressing with softness and fragility at times, and turning over to demonic screams in the very next moment! For the first time in SULDUSK’s young history, there are also male vocal harmonies contributed by Shane Mulholland.


Anthesis was produced and mixed by Troy Mccosker, and was mastered by Thomas “Plec” Johansson (Soilwork, Opeth, Katatonia). The album also features guest appearances of Raphael Weinroth-Browne (Leprous) and Rachelle Harvey on cello. With their second album, SULDUSK are more than ready to embark on another journey into the depths of primeval forests, where emotions are hidden under the thickets to reveal what’s not meant to be seen. The album is a stunning and enthralling masterpiece - highly recommended for fans of Myrkur, Oathbreaker and Chelsea Wolfe - and one that unconditionally needs to be seen, felt and heard!
