Giboraltar - Lichtgeburt

Next year is the 10th anniversary on this obscure gem!


This 2 (pictures of 3 persons in the booklet though) member band from Chile plays a forceful in your face raw heathen black metal with a nice dose of atmosphere, Straight away when you press play it attacks! Makes your blood boil!
Quite extreme in production regarding putting most levels high in the front of the mix and this combined with the brutal harsh vocals makes it unavoidable to escape hahah.
 More or less familiar northen guitar melodies (proud and  harsh) but at the same time they make them their own, drums is more in the back but audiable just enough to work as a good rythmic fondation.

Vocals and mix remind me a bit of Immatura Morte which in my book is something very possitive.

Dont know why this band has not released any more material after this and it is a shame as it would be much interesting to see what they would have create after this delighful debut!

Oppressive and raw release that should be more know i think, nothing new or so but just a fierce solid black metal record that holds the test of time (well 10 years is maby not so long time but you get what i mean.)

Time for a re-release is feel!

Ethereal Mist / Odvas

 Here we have a new delivery from the ambient/atmospheric entity called Odvas, like last time (check link at the bottom for review on the first tape) we get put on a plane of both distant hostile vibrations and close spiritual ambiguity...a bit like hovering inbetween layers of existence, is it the past life that send up aggravating sentiments or is it from the coming place?

As before you get a well dramaturgical structured pieces that easily creates inner visions. I  look forward to coming  releases/segments of this ongoing journey... as it feels surley like a new chapter is around the corner.
Soothing and chilling stuff from Hungary.


Next up we is presented with new music from the Australian Ethereal Mist. (side project from a member of Entsetzlich, Kryptus)

 EM goes for a more clean synth dinner which is both a bit on the "spooky" side but mostly it goes for a distressful introspective sound dialogue, like inner argumentation morphed into synth tones.
Some sudden sounds here and there for good measure, the structure is dissolving more or less on its way and at times its testing your endurance haha.

A sold dark atmospheric split tape!

Track list:

Ethereal Mist side
- A drift in Death´s Gaze -

Odvas side
- Obscure Levitation -

New Triumphant Cadaver tapes is on the way!

Häretischer Kreis 5 band-split tape

Take a sharp knife and prick your eardrum apart then pour this melted satanic tape into your brain!



Swine Soul

A raw sliding mental disaster but with good rythm and bestial blues
insane varied vocals, self destructive with a base of afterlife curiousness perhaps but
for sure there is a need of cracking open the physical body and leave this
flesh prison for whatever reason(not that it is hard to find reasons).
 a plus for the intense ending.

Immatura Morte

As i have been a fan of IM (Mexico) some years now i can still claim IM
has not lost its way or soften down, this perticular track
has an more somber and mid paced tempo with introspective lean...
but with fiery hights and lows, bleak and screachy raw. Another
cut in the idea of "self".
Good as always. If you have not listen to them make sure to look
 up their previous material also (well that goes for all bands here)

Xzælthu

This is could be the most raw song productionwise...perhaps a rehearsal
but it serves as a good cloak for this unknow(to me) band to
strike out! it has a semi wall of noise in mid peace that hammers
on with a slight but nice use of melody, vocals has a very out spaced
echoing effect on it so the experience gets even more ghastly and
creates more levels down into the smog. some fitting keybords
shows up a bit into the whole blender. A surprising and interesting
song even if its nothing really new. Got me intrigued to look after more from
them.This has a sneaky but firm aura of doing great things in the future...

Gormanudr

A melancholic but still barbaric raw black metal from Germany, screaching vocals
go well (as before) with the rest perhaps a bit more vicious (then before). Song goes
through some interesting variations, from attack to drowning then back....a bit more
mental then early songs which works great. Would be very interesting to see what they could do on a full album release.
A solid slab of evil meat!


Funerary Temple

Here is another band i have enjoyed quite a bit in the last say 2 years, the is second in line if you range ttem in rawness and also like  Xzælthu has some spacy effects on the vocals that make it sink deep in shit. Both traditional sound for the band and not... i like its very dissonant murky vvampyric sewer sound.
 A fitting and killing end of a great split-collection of current raw bm bands.


..............Hmmm  strange the music keeps on coming after the "last" song.....


Track list:

1.     Swine Soul - Violent Self-Spiraling Forever Towards Utter Oblivion        
2.     Immatura Morte - Exclamavit autem mortis vocat me et nigra ignis ante exitium est nomen         meum fatum est interis mors, dementiae et putridus        
3.     Xzælthu - Untitled        
4.     Gormanudr - Ages of Blood        
5.     Funerary Temple - Chanting Woes Through The Chambers of Flesh

And here is two booked bands that which release info will be disclosed when the time is in


Soon info on release 6 will be official plus some secret releases as of now is being discussed about

Holokauston - Hymns For An Unavailing Tragedy

Ok it is not everyday that i review an BM band from India.....probably happened like twice in the past 5 years.... so i cant say i have a solid image what Indian BM is or sounds like which makes it a bit extra exotic bracing this band.


First this is i think the third release from the one man Lord Chaos (does it all) and my first reaction was "Hmmm this is pretty impressing!" also from what i understand this Lord is a young Lord...dont think he hat hit the big 20 yet so that makes this music even better. I was a retard that young and could never see me come up with this type of music.

The music is a semi raw & somber melodic black metal with a mix of traditional second wave Bm and some more long progressive (not Prog!) and quite personal compositions that does not feel ripped from the greats. Songs is between 5 to 10 minutes and during the individual playtimes much interesting atmospheres is building up.... both be a bit meditative and dark like a distant wrath looking down on life. Lyrics seems to be on the more pondering side rather then lashing out in hate.
Feels pretty mature...

Production is as good as it needs to be, all is audiable but organic, cold sharp guitars, dry varid drum patters mixed nicely in the back and some synths is used in a tasteful way, vocals is raspy and works fine. Feels pretty much like something that could be found in the 90´s UG, a bit Swedish, Norwegian and also a bit Greek sounding if one should pin point it some more.
 
Track list:
1.Pessimism I 08:53
   
2.Pessimism II 09:24
   
3.Pessimism III 10:24
   
4.Fists Of A Crusader 09:26
   
5.Ærie Descent (Thorns Cover) 04:59

I dont know if its release on physical format but here is the bandcamp page:
