Black Metal Project Burgûli Signs with Wormholedeath!
Burgûli, the one-man black metal project of Kondea Gorthaur, has announced that he has signed a deal with Wormholedeath for the release of the upcoming EP, Odi Des De La Fi Del Món (Hate From The End Of The World). The new EP follows the previous ones on their raw sound, with sharp riffs and a lo-fi production that brings you to the bottom of the abyss and makes you desperate.
Odi Des De La Fi Del Món is the fourth music offering by Burgûli, and the first one to be released by Wormholedeath. The EP is entirely sung in Catalan language, one of Kondea's mother tongues (the other one being Spanish). As he explains, "I didn’t see why not to use it since there are many artists singing in their mother tongues. The album talks about the recurrent themes of the band: darkness, hate, rage, and misanthropy. Odi Des De La Fi Del Món is, like my previous album, about how I feel in this world, and how I feel related to this species called human beings. Burgûli is me, so every album is a representation of me."
Burgûli is influenced by old-school black metal bands such as Darkthrone, Burzum, Mayhem, and Moonblood. The project started in 2019 with the release of Ombres (Shadows), followed by Runes (Runes) in 2020, and Abans Que Ens Engoleixi La Llum (Before The Light Swallows Us) in 2021. All these albums were released by Orbis Alia Records, a label run by Kondea himself except Abans Que Ens Engoleixi La Llum, released via Base Record Production.
Kondea plays all the instruments and writes all the lyrics for Burgûli. He also handles the artwork and the production of his albums. He describes his music as "a way of expressing myself and my feelings towards this world and this society. I don't care about fame or money, I just want to create something that reflects who I am and what I think."
