5 / 5
"The extreme and unforgiving landscape is captured perfectly, whilst capturing a wide range of complex, adrenaline fueled and fear driven emotions … you are left with a constant chill down your spine, as it feels like the band gave carved out the grim, isolated and chilling atmosphere out of a glacier … distinctly unique … carefully calculated and executed perfectly … stunning debut …"
8,5 / 10
"… one mighty strong debut … brutal, cold and harsh yet atmospheric Black Metal … vocals are really good …"
(North From Northern)
8 / 10
"… great amount of melody … very powerful … great …"
(Occult Black Metal Zine)
"... impressive ... look far beyond ... hard phrased ... clashing cold ... I feel reminded of bands Helrunar, Árstíðir Lífsins, Nagelfar or Helheim, even if one has to attest Antrisch an independent sound ..."
"… glittering, star-like ambience … explodes in blistering percussive blasts, frantically flickering guitars, and vicious, scorching screams, as well as booming bass, jolting chords, bell-like reverberations, and panoramic melodies … the music’s morphing movements are captivating, channeling a changing array of dark and devastating moods quite powerfully."
(No Clean Singing)
"... no greenhorns ... dynamic songwriting ... a pleasingly good, varied and poisonous entry into the mountain massif of Metal."

April 8ᵗʰ, 2021
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.
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.
