CANIS DIRUS’ “A Somber Wind from a Distant Shore” debut is a black metal bouquet of Midwestern melancholy forged in the desolate hinterlands of Minnesota. Named after the “dire wolf” indigenous to North America over 100,000 years ago, CANIS DIRUS base their epic songs around their disdain for humanity who have been perpetually encroaching on nature. The last burning embers of dying autumnal twilight, the beckoning shrieks of oncoming night, the blanket of everlasting darkness: All encapsulated in the foreboding atmosphere of “A Somber Wind from a Distant Shore”.
