radikaliai!, the webzine of Lithuanian culture has mentioned ‘Secret Catharsis’ as one of this country’s memorable releases for 2014. Released on its own in 2014, it is now part of the recently released retrospective “Obscurity”.
In the words of Loikav (responsible for all writing, performing, recording and mixing):
“Obscurity” is a compilation album which brings together the one-off, experimental, and mostly previously unreleased Uvikra music.
It consists of two main sources – Firstly, the lost black metal (and otherwise) sessions of 2012. These songs were recorded only as demos for fun. Warning: These tracks are very raw and muddy.
Secondly, the most recent recordings. There were two doom/death metal songs recorded in December 2013 – “Secret Catharsis” (a song previously issued as a single) and “Manifesting Changes”. And lastly, the eponymous song “Uvikra” was recorded in July 2014, and it’s a proggy instrumental.
Obtain ‘Secret Catharsis’ along with a gathering of notable music produced by this singular artist.
There are plans for a physical release in the near future,
