Fall of Efrafa

Fall of Efrafa was a concept band formed in Brighton, United Kingdom, in 2005. It started life as a cello-driven hardcore band, yet after various line-up changes, they focused on creating their own sound, mixing elements of post-rock, post. metal and ambient folk black metal, taking influence from bands such as Neurosis, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Agalloch and Buried Inside. They described their music as heavy atmospheric post-hardcore.

Fall of Efrafa was a concept band formed in Brighton, United Kingdom, in 2005. It started life as a cello-driven hardcore band, yet after various line-up changes, they focused on creating their own sound, mixing elements of post-rock, post. metal and ambient folk black metal, taking influence from bands such as Neurosis, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Agalloch and Buried Inside. They described their music as heavy atmospheric post-hardcore.

The concept was based loosely around their own interpretation of the mythology in the novel Watership Down by Richard Adams. The band created a trilogy of records known collectively as “The Warren of Snares”: Owsla (guardian), Elil (enemy), and Inlé (death). The narrative behind the lyrics followed a society on the brink of social collapse, under a theocratic rule. An uprising occurs in the face of a greater enemy. Characters from the book, and the make-believe language known as ‘lapine’, were included in both the artwork and lyrics.

The band received a lot of praise for their music, both for the concept surrounding the band - a mix of mythological language and imagery amidst anti-religious, animal rights ideologies - and the music itself, although fans are often divided, when pigeon-holing their sound.

The band was staunchly DIY, but managed to sidestep specific labels by incorporating a mixture of disparate post-rock and avant-garde/folk black metal passages and hardcore punk influences. « hide
