David Fischer Being the cretin I am, I do not know Downfall of Nur nor Antonio Sanna. What I do know is that Ysyry Mollvün takes a seriously great approach to atmospheric black metal, resulting in one of the genre's most entertaining albums I have heard in a good while! Told is the story of K'aux; the usual armoury ov black metal instruments is supported by a flute, a charango and an acoustic guitar without ever stepping into gimmicky territory. Au contraire, it is a definite standout. Highly recommended! Favorite track: K’aux See Reconquista Ysyry.

Umbra Cornuta Black metal acts with specific native cultural backgrounds mesmerizes me all the time. Ysyry Mollvün makes no exception. On top of it, the unique "Downfall of Nur" influences, turns this into a blissful oeuvre. Wonderful! Favorite track: K’aux See Reconquista Ysyry.

K’aux Rise 06:38


Ysyry Mollvün is a conceptual project created by Zupai Ulen in 2012. In November 2015, Antonio Sanna (Downfall Of Nur) met Zupai and offered to be the producer. As time passed by, Sanna got involved in the crating of this project, composing arrangements for acoustic guitars and native instruments such as the charango, sikus, flutes and percussions. The band’s name comes from the words “river” in the Guaraní language, indigenous people from South America (Ysyry) and “blood” in the language of Selk'nam people, the indigenous tribe from southern Argentina (Mollvün).

Ysyry Mollvün tells the story of K'aux, a being that was once a human who was educated by the Selk’nam gods to teach the tribe what was necessary to outlive in the harsh conditions of the extreme south of the world. K'aux betrayed his oath and did not pass on what he learned, and for this reason he was condemned to lie forever, neither dead nor alive, in the center of the earth.

A thousand years later Espíritu del Monte, the god who punished K'aux couldn't understand what happened to the other deities since, except for the god of death (San la Muerte), they were no longer on this earth. All had changed, the people who lived on this earth were more, the flora and fauna that had inhabited no longer existed and everything that was for thousands of years was longer as it had been. Because of this, el Espíritu del Monte decides to wake up K'aux so that he can see with his human's eyes what happened and what must be done so that everything goes back to what once was.
