/ Halflighted was conceived in 2018 by the minds of Óskart and Mark in Catalonia after the split of Mark’s previous Death Metal band Dryzer. Their initial idea for a Death Doom Metal project slowly evolved into an eclectic and genre-defying opus as the current line-up consolidated itself in the following years.
In the band’s debut, 5 different music tastes fiercely clash to spawn Sludge-infused songs that explore Gothic undertones, Death Metal forces, Progressive tints, classic Rock drumming, a fair amount of Psychedelia and many more hidden influences. This uncompromising soundscape’s exact genre is up to the listener to decide.
Sung in English, Catalan and German, the lyrics mainly deal with war, inner struggles and despair through many different points of view. “Obloquy” has been recorded by Varg The Mighty in Redrum Studios in spring and summer of 2022, and it has later been mixed and mastered by Javi Félez in Moontower Studios. All the artwork has been designed by Óskart.
"Obloquy" has been released by Wormholedeath Records on June 2nd 2023./bc
