Vleddermos/Worshippers Of The Unholy Gather Under The Full Moon/Tribulacion Production/2018 CD Review

mercredi 8 mai 2019 à 06:37

Vleddermos  are  a  duo  from  the  Netherlands  that  plays  a  musical  style  they  refer  to  as  being  black  horror  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2018  album  "Worshippers  Of  The  Unholy  Gather  Under  The  Full  Moon  which  was  released  by  Tribulacion  Production.

  Horror  movie  style  organs  start  off  the  album  and  they  also  mix  in  with  a  lot  of  the  heavier  sections  of  the  music.  When  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  can  also  be  heard  which  also  gives  the  songs  more  of  a  raw  feeling  along  with  the  vocals  adding  in  a  very  crazy  and  high  pitched  style  of  black  emtal  screams.

  A  good  amount  of  90's  influences  can  also  be  heard  in  the  bands  musical  style  while  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.  At  times  the  music  also  gets  very  experimental  sounding  along  with  the  songs  also  capturing  a  lo-fi  atmosphere  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.

 
Demonic  voices  can  also  be  heard  briefly  and  at  times  the  music  also  gets  very  ritualistic  and  avant  garde  sounding  as  well  as  some  spoken  word  parts  and  movie  samples  also  being used  briefly  as  the  album  progresses.  The  production  sounds  very  dark, r aw  and  lo-fi  while  the  lyrics  cover  occultism,  rituals  and  horror  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Vleddermos  are  a  very  great  sounding  black  horror  metal  duo  and  if  you  are  looking  for  something t hat  is  very  different,  you  should  check  out t his  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "A  Malign  Entity  Possesses  Me  Eternally"  and  "Into  The  Stormy  Night".  8 /5  out  of  10.

  Verwoed  are  a  solo  project  from  the  Netherlands  that  has  had  music  reviewed  before  in  this  zine  and  on  this  recording  plays  a  very  psychedelic  and  atmospheric  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2019  album  "Da  Val"  which  will  be  released  on  May  24th  as  a  joint  effort  between  Sentient  Ruin  Laboratories,  Argento  Records  and  Tartarus  Tapes.

  Distorted  amp  noises  along  with  some  heavy  riffing  starts  off  the  album  while  all  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.  When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  along  with  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  bringing  in a   great  amount  of  blast  beats.

  When  tremolo  picking  is  utilized  it  gives  the  songs  more  of  a  raw  feeling  while  the  vocals  are  done  in  a  very  deep  yet  grim  style.  Throughout  the  recording  you  can  also  hear  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  at  times  the  music  also gets  very  atmospheric  sounding  as  well  as  mixing  in  some  psychedelic  elements.

  All  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  while  the  riffs  also  add  in  a  decent  amount  of  melody.  Melodic  Gregorian  chants  can  also  be  heard  briefly  on  one  of  the  tracks  and  as  the  album  progresses  a  small  amount  of  clean  playing  is  also added  onto  the  recording  and  the  music  also  gets  very  abstract  and  hallucinogenic  sounding  at  times,  clear  vocals  can  also  be  heard  briefly  on  the  closing  track.  The production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  Dutch  and  cover  nihilism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Verwoed  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  atmospheric  and  psychedelic  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "De  val"  and  "Het  bedriegende  oog".  8 out  of  10.

Necroroots Interview

mercredi 8 mai 2019 à 02:15
1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

necroroots is a black metal band from Mexico and, more exactly, from a small city called techaluta, formed by two unique members, TERTARO and EIACOS. Together we make all the music and all the lyrics, the main objective of making this band was to express our feelings about the night, the pain and feelings of the human race, and most importantly, how society is falling.



2.In 2018 you had released an ep, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical style you went for on the recording?


This was the first time we made black metal, so we wanted the music to be heard in an old and raw way, so we recorded the songs in a very basic way, for the EP we recorded a total of ten songs, of which we chose 6 and taking two songs as background sounds. all the songs in the ep are made the most black metal as possible.


3.Your lyrics cover the mind liberation of religion, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in this topic?

yes , in the song called "the chosen one" the lyrics talks about how the human race is a slave of all the religions in the world, religion controls all the capacity of the man, we make that the song to invite all persons to open their eyes to reality and follow their own way.


4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Necroroots?

well, tertaro was the master mind behind the name of necroroots, is a two words combination NECRO means dead and ROOTS means old because in necroroots we want to make old black metal like the early 90´, Fortunately is a new word and makes the band more original.


5.Can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork that is presented on the ep cover?

the art work for the ep was made by me Eiacos , i try to put the essence of the band in the symbol behind the logo of necroroots, the pentagram means for us the revelation of knowledge about the true of life, and the three circles on the pentagram mean the three stages of the human life, born, grow and die, its basically the meaning of the entire ep art work.



6.Currently there is only 2 members in the band but the band had more members in the past, are you open to expanding the line up again or do you prefer to remain a duo?

there were more members in the past because we played in live shows, but they were only session musicians, necroroots has always been a band of two members (tertarus and eiacos), and so it will still be like that, it is easier to create music with only two members , we do not believe that there are more people with our ideology near us.


7.Has the band done any live shows or are open to doing any live shows?

at the beginning of necroroots we started playing live, but when we created the band three years ago the idea was only to make music and share through internet, there were invitations to play live which we took advantage of, but unfortunately the people in the area where we live they do not understand what black metal is, so we decided not to play live again, but we are still focused on continuing to create better music


8.The ep was released on 'Silentium In Foresta Records' but they facebook page said you where signed to Rural Records, do you feel both of these labels have been very helpful when it comes to getting your music out there heard?

rural records recorded the songs for necroroots and Silentium In Foresta Records only distributed a number of copies, in the same way we are very grateful for the support they have offered towards the band, for the moment we still do not finish the album, but once finished necroroots will be looking for labels to distribute our music, we do not care about money, we just want our music to be known by the other people who are like us




9.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of black metal?

fortunately we have had more luck in other countries than in ours, there are people here who do not know what black metal is, we have realized that there are people in other countries that like our music, that motivates us to make more black metal , we started only with the idea of making music just for us, but now we are making music for others.


10.I heard you are working on a full length, what can we expect musically once it is released?

We have put all our effort to make this album the best we have done, the songs have more passion, the lyrics are more honest than in the ep songs and the quality of the recording will be even better, we still need to detail some things, but we are sure that it will be even more black and aggressive than the ep songs, the songs have more pain and darkness.

the theme of the disc will talk about how the human being begins to die, from the suicide desires, until the moment he is among the dead suffering



11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

we have a lot of bands that influenced us, a lot of old bands like burzum, mayhem, dissection and gorgoroth just for mention some ones, we don't try to copy they style we only take them some fundamentals about how to create a dark atmosphere , we olways trye to sound like necroroots.

some bands i hearing in this days are the new songs of gaahls wyrd, 1349 a lot , im waiting for the new album of darkthrone, but im still hearing a lot of old school black metal.



12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

thanks a lot to occult black metal zine for this interview, and thanks to all the people who supported us in this three years, the album is coming this year and it will be awesome.

cheers for all the metalheads in the world .

eiacos and tertaro.

  When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  along  with  some  clean  playing  also  being  brought  into  the  music  at  times.  Synths  are  also  added  into  some  parts  of  the  recording  and  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.
