ĀTER Draw Deep From The Past On 'Vullighied' Out Mar 24th

ĀTER ep2020

The latest EP from Belgium group Āter is entitled Vullighied and contains 5 tracks of glorious old-school melodic black metal with goose-bump inducing riffs. Vullighied was written in a thousand-year-old dialect to create a truly unique experience and challenge for the listener. The artwork was created by Bram Bruyneel and Anthony Blomme.


Lead vocalist Wesley explains track by track
The tracks on Vullighied were written in an almost 1000 year old dialect of Flanders. Translating them would be very hard without losing the beauty of the words, so I have decided to just give meaning to them by describing the content in short form.


D’Oereis a song a about a whore, who does not want to be a whore, but has to be so her children can be fed and she can have a life. She allows herself to be “raped” by countless men every night until festering wounds are caused by the abuse and they never go away, this woman is in constant pain but has to endure it. She cries every day, the whole day, because she can’t take it anymore but has to do it to meet “end’s meet”…. the men who do it to her either don’t care or aren’t aware such a situation might exist within prostitution so they just take their pleasure from it. It is a tale of a woman, willingly taking abuse to survive in this world because no other chances are within her reach. There is way more reality in this story than one might imagine.


Strontroaper van Abjeleis a song about a hard-working individual cleaning shit off the streets while the elite makes fun of him, all the while he is actually doing the most noble of jobs… keeping your shoes clean and making sure his offspring does not need to suffer any hunger.


Voorvaderenis about the war between France and Belgium and how this cold war still continues today in the French speaking part of Belgium vs the Flemish speaking part. I’m from Flanders myself and often feel the conflict… it’s a song about how hatred can survive for centuries.


Valkennachtrepresents the utopia between all of the above, all of them at one feasting table, celebrating the “Valkennacht”, considering each other as equal and feasting, realizing they need to honor the earth and nature for the soil that feeds them.


Diatomacious Oozeis a bonus track, for experimental purposes, a mixture of blackened death with horror elements and hysterical vocals in different ranges and styles.
