"Degen van Licht" is an ode to the ageless lure of the unyielding mountains, and an exploration of the sweltering warmth which encompasses these heights every summer. Crackling green pastures full of life morph into scorching fields of withered grass and decaying alpine herbs. Shrieks of lammergeiers prowling for the bones of decomposing creatures reverberate throughout the high summits. The purgatory potential of the massif is revealed when death prevails. Witnessing these changes and enduring the delirious heat formed the basis for “Degen van Licht”. The maniacal drumming, tormented screams and spectral guitars coalesce into a sound that will be familiar for long‑time followers of the band, while further developing their signature psychedelic aural structures.
"Turia took their bar and raised it to even more mountainous heights." - Metal Injection
"As only Turia can, they conjure a surreal, absorbing soundscape that is as alluring as it is disquieting, pounding out a hypnotic trudge before giving way to unexpected and unsettling twists." - Steregoum
"Degen van Licht, is a further installment of ambitiously exploratory, tightly controlled, and above all, furiously exciting music." - Echoes and Dust
