Laang 冷 is a terror black metal band from Keelung City 基隆市 Taiwan, born from horrifying experiences of what lies beyond life by the band’s sole member 冷 during a near-death experience. While medically dead, 冷 experienced what he can best describe as “a place beyond Hell” while in a coma. This world beyond death that he experienced was one of incomprehensible terror and desolation beyond explanation. The band’s debut album Hǎiyáng 海洋 encapsulates this horrifying otherworld of emptiness, inhuman madness, and crushing terror. Hǎiyáng 海洋 was released internationally in June 2019 on the Austrian label Talheim Records, the world’s fastest-growing black metal record label. The album release was followed by an international headlining tour through Taiwan and Hong Kong. The band’s iconic musical style combines aggressive and non-canonical black metal riffing with melancholic melodies, tortured vocals performed in Mandarin Chinese, dark orchestras, and traditional erhu instrumentation. Laang is: 楊海濤 – Guitar, orchestration, vocals 戴敬緯 - Bass 李婉伶 - Drums
