      Bio

      In 2003, CARACH ANGREN ("irons jaws") is formed in the southern regions of Limburg (NL). Two members of black/thrash metalband Vaultage gather behind the scenes of the band to share their passion for legends and black metal through music. Their black metal grows and the curtain falls for Vaultage. And so, CARACH ANGREN is ready for bigger steps.<br>
      <br>
      The band chose a classical, storytelling approach in the broad genre: their sound
      is characterized by symphonic arrangements. Why? Because this element is the perfect
      score for the stories that are told. Since their first EP, "The Chase Vault Tragedy",
      the band has worked with concepts instead of separate songs. The Chase-vault on
      this EP is a 17th century family vault on the island Barbados. Each time a burial
      was added to the vault, people found the older graves disordered and disturbed.
      Investigations did not lead to any logical cause, which raised speculations of a
      possible paranormal cause. Carach Angren picked up on this story and brought it
      to life in their unique way through lyrics and music.

      The fascination for the paranormal resurfaces on the following release "Ethereal Veiled Existence". A remarkable story told in 5 songs. The strange occurrences around one of the most spectacular photographs of a ghost ever taken are the basis for this mini CD.

      In 2007, independent label MADDENING MEDIA picked up the haunting echoes of these
      well-received demos. They granted abode to the Dutch wraiths of Carach Angren and
      decided it was time for their first full length. Recordings took place in July/August
      and November of 2007, and the album was completed in January 2008.

      With the two self-released EPs on their résumé it is time to bring the legends to life on stage ... not merely by the theatrical atmosphere, but for an important part by some old-fashioned thrash metal. Yes, there's the dark clothing and characteristic make-up, but CARACH ANGREN does not omit the incredibly tight metal for some good old headbanging.

      In early 2007, CARACH ANGREN haunts the halls of MADDENING MEDIA who hereby decide to grant abode to the dutch wraiths in order to be enchanted instead of being cursed.

      The recording for "Lammendam", a concept album around the ghost of a lady in white, is done in July/August and November 2007. The finishing touch is added in January 2008.

      As of the release date in April, CARACH ANGREN instantly impose themselves as the premier dutch black-metal act, with an exploding number of fans and concerts across Europe.

      In August 2009, CARACH ANGREN re-entered the TidalWave studio to record their sophomore shocker named "Death Came Through A Phantom Ship", an album of naval terror and elemental fright which they released on February 26th, 2010, again through Maddening Media.
      Shortly after the release the band hit the road with Swedish black metal band DARK FUNERAL on the extensive 'A Declaration of Hate Tour' featuring more than 35 shows all over Europe.
