The Skinny: Viranesir is a dark metal project created by the Yayla mastermind Emir Toğrul. Originally created to be the solo project of the fictional main character in the film “Drink From The Fountain Of Uncertainty”, the project is releasing the soundtrack as its debut album Fountain Of Uncertainty through Merdumgiriz Records June 21st.

The 30 minute album, recorded in character to complete the emotional construct of the nameless fictitious protagonist referred to as “Musician” in the films credits, has come to fuse together a variety of the influences that one can get through high doses of hermetic extreme metal and dark music. From ambient driven doom lullabies to saturated synthesizers and black metal melodies, the album presents a cosmos of inward gazing and a contemporary take on urban madness and isolation.
