SIASKEL's second opus "HARUWEN AIREN" brings back the raw, cold and dark atmospheres evoked in the deepest and southest landscapes of CHILE, after the first release back in 2014 "Jatenentolpen Thejin". The extreme Black/Death metal roots are further evolved to create a stormy musical vortex materialized firstly on tape by the american based label GRACELESS RECORDINGS and now will be reissued on a 6 panel digipack by SIGNAL REX (Portugal).
+++ THE METAL OBSERVER +++
8 out of 10
"These guys have stepped up from their debut and brought an engaging album that pretty much destroys everything in its path. From the bulldozer rhythms during “Hais” to the frosted sweeping trems of “Mai-ich”, Siaskel covers a lot of ground. Yet, despite the frenetic approach the band is able to bend the nuances and stylings into a destructively cohesive sound. Twisted South American death metal with more than a few nods to the peak of the second wave, Siaskel have crafted a solid album that deserves a lot more attention that it’s gotten."
+++ INVISIBLE ORANGES +++
"The “black/death metal” tag always warrants a little bit of a cringe from me, but Chile’s Siaskel has absolutely perfected the mix. Coming off like a heavier, less melodic Dissection, Haruwen Airen is a powerful, catchy, memorable album which honestly caught me off guard. I can’t wait to get my grubby mitts on a copy of this."

"Siaskel music is still a ferocious mixture of black and death metal, with the blackened elements dominating all over the album. It’s very vicious and harsh sounding music, which will give you a nice dose of aggression."
