"This is trilling because the Caribbean is a long way away from Norway and the frosty climate that we associate with BM, and it's also a bit second world, which adds a bit of wilderness and danger into the mix." - PLATFORM..

We play The Metal of Death with Afro-Caribbean sounds...
On August 5th 2009 in Barbados, 17 year old Emdeka Anubis (previously known as Veldt Soldaat) created TOHARA HARAKATI and recruited three other members over a period of time, who all the same common goal: to establish a metal scene in an Anti-metal society.
These members quickly became inattentive and left, while the remnant of this band became CONRAD.
After doing several promotional tracks covering artist such as BURZUM, SEPULTURA & COR SCORPII, Emdeka then channeled his earlier atmospheric influences from bands such as WINDIR & EMPEROR into his musical creativity and thus, the first original demo OSEAAN KRONIEK took its form.
August 17th, after the demo's release, Fornost from the band Angest & Lord Ifrit of Orisha Shakpana would be recruited as session vocalist.
Emdeka would then found a Merch Store/Distrubution center called CARIB METAL HORDE shortly after.
After seeking to improve vastly both musically & spiritually, the project took a sinister turn into the Occult & Pagan realms within the environment. The new material being manifested would now be focused upon various Cults of Death and the darkest Barbadian folklore told centuries ago. With the integration of Caribbean rhythms and sounds with the Metal of Death, -CONRAD WITHIN- took a much more dangerous path form its preceder.
The -Conrad Within- MCD EP was released on September 13th 2011 via SATANICA PRODUCTIONS (NZ). Purchase this odious invokation here: http://conradbb.blogspot.com/2011/09/conrad-within-mcd-ep-released-today-via.html
