DESCRIPTION

In a country scared by the rising tides, only a few paid attention to the slow quakes in the crust of the earth. Continental shifts below the surface of the northern part of the Netherlands gave birth to TEKHTON. The conception was a long and hard process. It all started around 2002 with some light tremors which led to a small eruption in 2004, a demo was recorded. Since then the band shifted many masses of land in and outside of the Netherlands. Highlights were the Doom Shall Rise festival in Germany, and the gigs in France and Belgium. So the band exists since 2002. Bert-René, Dirk, Jurgen and Marco, started out as a four piece known as LAHAR. They knew each other from former bands like 'Thy Withering Orchard' and 'Crystal Darkness'. In 2002, stoner rock was too happy and doom-metal got drowned by red wine and strangled by self-pity. About time to bring some uncompromising raw doom to the world. At the end of 2003 they recorded the first demo, which was released in January 2004. The demo got well received in the 'doom underground'. The demo got some great reviews (“Makes ‘The Passion of the Christ’ seem like Mother's milk") and sold out. There was a limited reprint for Doom Shall Rise with some extra songs on it, that sold out quickly as well.In 2005 Ralph joins the band. Tremors become heavier and a second eruption follows. In 2006 the debut album is recorded and the band changes it's name to TEKHTON. Shifting continents is a lengthy process, as is releasing the debut album. But in 2007, around the summer solstice, 'Summon the core' enters this world. Days are getting shorter again and the songs longer. The album is released by 'The Church Within Records' from Germany a very promising label with already some great releases under it's belt.
