On April 15, 2021 the tasteful individualists released the official lyric video for the EP song "Stirnschlag":

Vocalist Maurice Wilson illuminates the thematically compelling background of "Stirnschlag" as follows:
"The song title is a neologism, composed of 'rockfall' and 'cerebral apoplexy' ... the subtitle of the song is 'snow line' ... in the narrative sequence, in the story presented, this is the moment when the protagonist breaks away from the rope team, and sets off on his own to the summit, where for the first time the raw forces of nature are expressed more clearly in the sense of a real threat to life ... especially the song finale is also under the sign of physical emaciation and superhuman effort ... the protagonist dies at the end of the song ... due to a head injury suffered in a rock fall, his perception increases to delusions and impressions of nature, literary fragments, mythological parables are mixed ..."

ANTRISCH cultivates in a highly original and independent way an exquisite mixture of different styles of Black Metal, skillfully mixed with parts of Doom, Djent and Dark Ambient.

The group name ANTRISCH is inspired by the world-famous South Tyrolean mountaineering legend Reinhold Messner, who published the dialectical term 'antric light' - which stands for 'strange, secretly, uncanny' and simply fits perfectly to the atmospheric music of the Würzburg hopefuls.

Founded in 2020, ANTRISCH with their highly charismatic ATMOSPHERIC BLACK METAL explore the inner world, which allows for the wide range of expressions that the human spirit is capable of bringing forth from the inner life.

Triumph on the stormy peak
In addition, the outer world is also thematized in an equally sophisticated and no less gripping way, whereby the profound formation essentially deals with the vast landscapes and the captivating forces of nature, which have been experienced in the most extreme way by some daredevils through past, historical expeditions to the most extreme landscapes of the world.
