Offernat formed in early 2020. In June 2021, the eponymous EP was released and subsequently the band played its first shows. Being a collaboration of musicians from very different backgrounds, Offernat is a cauldron of creativity where sonic landscapes are explored in a curious and Experimental way, and where the most violent and dissonant are being set up against simple melodic lines and melancholic harmonies. Stylistically, the music can be traced back to genres such as Black Metal, Progressive Metal, Doom, and Post Metal, all of which is set in a dark and gloomy framework.
On “All Colours Retract,” nature is an underlying theme in both music and lyrics. Offernat directs its voice against the inner and the outer: outwards to the world in a desperate attempt to call out the dystopian realities we’re living in, an activistic scream from the darkest depths of the world. But also inwards, to solitude and isolation, abandoning the material world to confront oneself.
