Mystery surrounds everything in this act’s world, not just their music. Apart from the fact that they are a Germany-based duo, not much is known about them. The combination of dark ambient, ethereal percussions, dronish style and female voices, allows OAKE to create an overwhelming compound of shady soundscapes. Its shapeless epic composition is in itself an invitation to listen until the very end of the album, track by track, beat by beat.
OAKE - Offenbarung Germany-based duo Oake's debut 12-inch mines a similar vein of dread as Haxan Cloak's upcoming Excavation album or Blackest Ever Black's Dalhous. Its three tracks slither forward, their rhythms flickering in a mire of clustered kicks, human moans and roughly scraped strings. The title track blends these basic elements with a thunderstorm's worth of rumbling background noise that roils forward to become an overbearing force.
