Binah’s genesis can be traced back to sometime in 2010, when Aort started concocting early visions with the purpose of producing a recording of gothic, detailed and blood-curdlingly morbid Death Metal. Shortly thereafter, I.R.G. and A. Carrier were praeternaturally absorbed into the project, thus forming the core triumvirate that would summon the Binah sound.
A couple of pre-production demonstrations were shared, promptly sparking the interest of several sombre institutions. Dark Descent and Me Saco Un Ojo were welcomed to ink a deal with the aggrupation for the release of Binah’s first work in CD/digital and vinyl platforms respectively.
In the year 2012, the long-play recording “Hallucinating in Resurrecture” was published on the aforementioned formats, followed by a short-play phonograph record of seven inches and three musical pieces entitled “A Triad of Plagues” in 2014. Both works encountered wide, possession-like acclaim and were completed by a limited, band-funded cassette version of “Hallucinating in Resurrecture” in Aort’s own Haintic imprint.
Although Binah was, and remains, a studio-based aggrupation, 2014 did witness a rare public performance in support of Germany’s acclaimed quadrumvirate of Death Metal, Necros Christos.
A spell of ghost-like silence brings us to the year 2017, when Binah’s second recording of full length is conceived and pieced together in secretive and sinister fashion. Upon completion of this work, the band notes how an unpredicted and subtle development has taken place both conceptually and soundwise. Deciding that this path remains faithful to the original template, the three members show no hesitation in pursuing its release and commence a phase of spectral negotiations.
The turn of the year witnesses the alliance of Binah with long-standing institution Osmose Records to realise and promote the new musical pieces. Responsible once again for the artworks are old band associates Jaume Mayans and Daniela Kropeit, otherwise known as MMonsterbrush.
Thus commences a detour, of undefined duration, from older ideas onto a disquieting and uncertain future. Trepid yet resolute, Binah’s journey into the great unknown continues.
