Haiduk Deliver An Explosive Barrage of Dark Lore In Music Video for “Morph”
Haiduk, the solo project of Luka Milojica is an unrelenting, hypnotic force that greets listeners with a barrage of death-infused black metal that is prominently displayed on the latest release “Diabolica”, which was released in September last year. Now, Haiduk is releasing a music video for the single “Morph”. The entirety of Haiduk's discography, which spans four full lengths, takes place in the fantasy medieval realm of Callost, the different albums feature maps, descriptions, and stories set in the world.
Milojica explains the album and the single in further detail:
“Pure evil, speed, and darkness, “Diabolica” is fast and crushing like a volcanic eruption., it ties together the dark lore of the previous albums with new stories, maps, and a timeline. “Morph” was one of the first songs written for “Diabolica”. It’s about a shape-shifting demon who can take the form of a shadow-being. I wanted the song to have a dark atmosphere and have a lot of energy and speed.”
Like the album art depicts, “Diabolica” is an eruption of pent-up anger and power. Every song on the album is about building momentum and speed and blasting the listener with constantly evolving riffs and melodies. With pure speed and relentless riff attacks, the album crushes and keeps you on edge through aggressive arrangements as well as melodic and hypnotizing parts that create a mysterious atmosphere.
Haiduk was created to be the channel for Milojica’s dark musical desires, turning his ideas into a solo project was inspired by acts such as Vintersorg and others from Sweden and Norway. Lightning-fast, and bursting with energy, Haiduk is recommended for fans of Bolt Thrower, Vomitory, and Dissection.
