Rakta’s album seems to be documenting a mystical celebration, a peculiar sonic spectacle that departs from the rules of the record’s simple layout. Even the choice of “Ruina” as the final track seems a far-from-obvious, devilishly intelligent move. Dark suspension, looking for the unknown, depriving music of simple structures, creative exploration…

MUS190 RAKTA - Falha Comum LP
With a slight line up change in the drum department we see RAKTA tighten up their more tense, soundtrack natured developments alongside their more sparse and vulnerable elegance. They consistently manage to create a tripped out creep chamber with room to explore as the aura builds to nightmare crescendos juxtaposed with shaking silences. Simultaneously eerie and serene. With each new release we see more and more of what makes this group so essential in the canon of modern music.
300 copies on black vinyl and 100 on bone colour vinyl housed in a beautiful printed inner sleeve inside a heavy duty reversible cover with a vellum insert. Recorded by Fernando Sanchez. Mastered by James Plotkin. Art by André Penteado, Karlla Giratto and Rakta.

This is powerful and evocative stuff; the interplay of harrowing pathos and light.
At times, it sounds like Kate Bush in an oil drum full of nails rolling down a hill, at others it is transcendent. Like seeing the beauty of cathedral ornament, while feeling the cold dead stone of the structure. Paul
