MurkRat




Australia - Active.

Description

Gothic/Doom, Funeral Doom

Murkrat is the master work of Mandy Andresen, who also sings for The Slow Death, Crone, and previously Lycanthia. Aside from the drum work, this is entirely her own creation. The music incorporates ominous alto vocals, rich organ and piano melodies, and haunting ambient sections into Dark/Doom Metal. The first album perpetuates a blackened variation of traditional Doom, while Drudging the Mire provides a Gothic-tinged style of Funeral Doom Metal. With a grotesque and extreme interpretation of Gothic/Doom, the sound of Murkrat lies among a diverse range of bands including Abysmal Grief, Bloody Panda, and Virgin Black.
