“In my opinion Molog are a very great sounding raw and melancholic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE “Abandoned” and “Forest Suicide”. 8 out of 10.” – Occult Black Metal ZineTri by Molog
Molog are a duo from Melbourne Australia that combine the harshness of raw black metal with melancholic story telling, resulting in a large impactful sound. Not many people have heard this one and such is the nature of underground Australian black metal. It’s a different beast from many American and European acts we’ve become accustomed to. It’s not just raw for the sake of being raw, it has a strong audio thesis and will entice you in accompanying it on the harrowing journey that is Tri. The band is currently in the process of making a diverse and expressive follow up.
Many copies of Tri on vinyl were given away as promotional competition, inside and outside of Australia.
“We had finally been able materialize something, that had traveled a very long and thorny path. The earliest concepts, that were embodied on the album, are dated back 2008, and were initially planned for other projects. They had never materialized back then, and had spent most of that time laying around, until they had been reworked and finally recorded. Tri reflects ideas and feelings, that had been born even before the Molog itself.”
“Our major lyric influences are feelings and emotions that I have when I listen to the song or had, when I created main riffs. That explains why lyric is the last part of an album creation process for us. Lyric is a complement, like a last stroke of the brush before the paint is finished, not something that determines or defines it.”
“We had had a pretty good mental model how the cover should look like before we contacted the artist who painted it. When the time came, we just described how we see the cover to the artist and he did an awesome job. Btw, the cover art had been hand drawn on A1 paper (I think), with paint and brush.”
