But, now 2017 dawns and DISHARMONY have been resurrected, and their long-promised debut album has arrived in the form of Goddamn the Sun. Immediately, it is clear that this is a work of ancient Hellenic darkness; those immediately recognizable fundaments are firmly in place, and it is literally like a blast from the past – specifically for pioneering Greek black metal, the watershed year of 1993. And yet, so many years and a couple decades later, there is a new and strikingly refreshing sense of refinement to DISHARMONY on Goddamn the Sun. Long gone the unorthodox accoutrements may be, but what takes their stead is a stout ‘n’ surging iteration of Hellenic classicism, triumphant and otherworldly in equal measure, and still emitting a sulfurous sensation of aeons-old occultism. Even the cover art to Goddamn the Sun itself suggests an eldritch era, sometimes forgotten but never fully dead. And finally, seemingly a lifetime in the making, DISHARMONY have stepped forward to ascend the throne of this rich, timeless pantheon.
