See what's ahead of you Huge walls of black steel rise So high they darken the sky The light seeks a way but in vain Black flames burning between bones & ashes Sendenct to roam as an eternal victim Through my misanthropic kingdom There are ghosts and ominous things shadows that haunting you till the end No light, just black clouds rise up here Nothing thrives in my realm, only death & fear
2.
Sky turns black Visions of death Demons ringing the bell With the hammer from Hell Masshysteri!! All what you see Black chaos rise The devil set it free World turns to dust Panic is the law People going insane! This is the sound of Discipline Killed by creatures Merciless and loud "He" rules the world now! Murder, freak out! World turns to rust Peace is no more Or have you seen? This is the sound of Diszipline!
3.
Hate is my fuel Im going outside with cruel No-more emotions, no cure never standing still My mind is darker than the night It's growing inside Don't mess with me - or with the devil on my side I'm the hate consumer Riot terror chaos user I'm the hate consumer A self-destructive loser My intentions are always evil my thoughts are always dark I can't change my mind Fuck off the human kind
4.
You want me to burn in fire and flames You want me on pyre but I'll never die skeleton in ashes, it burns tonight Light up my corpse, with flames so bright My blood starts to boil my flesh turns blacK The flames burning high So high skeleton in ashes, it burns tonight Light up my corpse, with flames so bright Something to burn, you can not change You speak to me, I'm insane Down the hill between the trees I lay down in mud on my knees Flames growing up, i look to the sky! Burn out the life - my soul flying high
5.
You think you're bigger and strong But the darkness crawls along Your life destroyed by hellhammer Forever is nothing and nothing is save You believe in a higher creation Feel my Nihilistik reaction Your religion is only a fiction Ignorance in higher perfection No gods will show you the way no light that shines so bright away Void rising and devours your dimension Desolates you in millions of pieces

Winterlude 01:49
7.
Blood red moon - shines so bright Lurking shadows - in the night Unspeakable terror - crawling and bloom The horror is here - and bring the doom Supirior Presence of Cruelty Demons from the tomb, taking the last light The beginning of the endless - fuckin night No sun that shines - darkness will rise Obsessed by evil - The void unfolds Supirior Presence of Cruelty The supirior presence of Cruelty A Land of death - and rust you see The merciless power - from mighty hell Unleashed the force - from another world
8.
It's a winter evening Pale and cold like death himself Days full of nothing, days like stray dogs I hear the creak of old ropes, the old ropes Vultures looking up my deadly eyes It's hard to breathe, the light is gone My wounded flesh attracts the flies Bodys are hanging on the gallows, the gallows Pray for the sinners pray for the whores You will go down with the holy lords My body gets heavier My thoughts are falling into meaningless The rope tightens and I leave with a smile
9.
Dawn of cold blizzard night Freezing moon will rise The cold wind cuts your flesh The sun will never shine A Violent Winter This is the Violent Winter World in the grip of frost The Summer loses his crown Cold black years without end The Winter claims his throne A Violent Winter This is the Violent Winter So cold it freezes your soul Transylvanian frost triumph!

about

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present KARLOFF’s highly anticipated debut album, The Appearing, on CD, music cassette and vinyl LP formats.

Hailing from Germany, KARLOFF formed in 2018 as a means for erstwhile Graveyard Ghoul member Tom Horrified to blow off some punk-oriented steam with a couple close comrades. Describing their sound as “raw obscure punk turns into blackness,” it didn’t take long for the band to record their first recording, Demo ’18, but it was the following Raw Nights mini-album a year later where KARLOFF kicked into high gear. Released to widespread acclaim by DYING VICTIMS with the preceding demo tracks tacked on, Raw Nights strutted with sleazy confidence and an infectious sense of bash/crash/slash that struck deep into the heart of what makes the best of both punk and metal. But, the best was still come from KARLOFF…

At last, it arrives with their long-awaited debut album, The Appearing. If KARLOFF’s previous two short-lengths presented them as a more gutter-level Midnight, then The Appearing recasts the band in a totally new, altogether more unique light – and one that’s still brimming with that ever-special twist of olde-worlde evil. Rich and robust and ripplingly muscular, The Appearing struts like a cheetah with a heart full of napalm and flexes like nobody’s business. In fact, the lead-heavy stomp here harkens to ancient-days metalpunk like Carnivore, Best Wishes-era Cro-Mags, or even early Nasty Savage; equally, one could also point to the more modern likes of Iron Age, Shitfucker, and The Rival Mob. However, the creepiness KARLOFF hinted at earlier reaches a fever pitch across the tastefully-applied chorus FX, a subtle nod to post-punk that ably broadens the band’s reach without sacrificing their vision. More than all that, it’s the songwriting of The Appearing which renders it an intensely re-playable record: exciting, invigorating, and skillfully finding that balance between the seemingly epic and the swiftly concise.

Ghouls and ghosts, thugs and thieves: KARLOFF are calling upon you to witness The Appearing!
