ARAKK is a Copenhagen-based band playing a mixture of doom, post and drone metal, but the music is also influenced by various genres, such as electronic, noise, ambient and classical music. This reflects one of the basic ideas behind the band’s music: which is that it is more about creating powerful, heavy and most of all honest music, rather than making music that necessarily fits into a particular genre or theme in terms of lyrics and the feelings expressed.
The band was formed between late 2011 and early 2012 by Jesper Christoffersen, Kasper Ralsted Jensen, Johan Trærup and Aske Øland Kjærgaard. All are former members of bands such as Hexis, the Ghostname and Atlas. The band played their debut show on September 5th 2012. From early 2013, Arakk played a handful of shows with bands such as Solbrud, No Fealty, Iron and Whorls whilst recording “Self & Distance”. The track was mixed by Aske, mastered by Holger Lagerfeldt and released online the 4th of June 2014.
