“Radare’s music calls no attention to itself, but shines the spotlight on unwritten stories. As such, it is both fully present and fully absent, a Schrödinger’s set of songs.“ (A Closer Listen)
“While Radare present themselves as monochromatic miserablists, there’s a colour and energy within their music that says much about their varied musical skills. ‘Im Argen’ works as an album around the dynamic that the four musicians create between themselves, and an impressive performance it is.” (Tasty Fanzine)

this records has so much emotional heaviness and depth to it. I heard it for the first time when this resonated with me very well and after more and more time has passed the appreciation for this record just grew immensely. still spinning this every now and then from time to time since it just moves me with its mix of black metal and ghostly and haunting but beautiful clean singing alex-dissonance
I probably wouldn't have listened to this without the context of it being about dementia, but even without that context, this is a real work of art. The distorted big-band samples create a sound that starts out nostalgic, and becomes disturbing and confused, then fades into emptiness, but is enthralling all the way through. Stage 4 is my favorite, simultaneously defying musical logic and upholding it. Ivan Stanton
