Hobart, Tasmania-based Black Metal act Départe was formed in 2011 as a 4 piece u nder the name Ørannis. The intention was to create dark, brooding atmospheric black metal with a focus on an intense, hypnotic live performance, but as the band developed, with the addition of a second guitarist, so did their sound. The band began to stray from more traditional black metal ethos, shedding the face paint and incorporating elements from various other genres, such as post metal, drone, doom and death metal, the combination of which has resulted in something unique, emotive and truly powerful. In their relatively short career thus far,  Départe have shared the stage with  some  incredible international artists, including Gorguts, Ulcerate, Wormed, Gigan, Solace of Requiem, Internal Suffering, Absu, Rolo Tomassi, Palm, and Carnal, as well as Australian heavyweights such as Portal, Ne Obliviscaris, Ruins, The Amenta and Hadal Maw, an impressive feat for a band who only released their first official demo in November 2014. In mid 2015 the band signed a recording contract with reputable extreme metal label Season of Mist and their debut album, Failure, Subside is slated for release October 14th, 2016.
