Grylle/Les Grandes Cimpagnies/Antiq/2019 CD Review

mardi 22 octobre 2019 à 08:16

  Grylle  are  a  band  from  France  that  plays  a  medieval  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2019  album  "Les  Grandes  Cimpagnies"  which  will  be  released  in  November  by  Antiq.

  Folk  instruments  start  off  the  album  and  are  also  a  very  huge  part  of  the  recording  as  well  as  giving  the  songs  more  of  a  medieval  atmosphere.Spoken  word  parts  are  also  added  into  certain  sections  of  the  recording  while  the  songs  also  utilize  a  great  amount  of  flutes  and  a  goof  portion  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  All  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  while  grim  black  metal  screams  are  also  used  quite  a  bit  throughout  the  album.  Drums  are  also  added  into  some  parts  of  the  tracks  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  on  a  couple  of  tracks  blast  beats  can  be  heard  as  well  as  the  music  also  capturing  the  raw  aggression  of  black  metal  without  the  use  of  any  distorted  instruments.

  Throughout  the  recording  you  can  also  hear  a  great  mixture  of  slow  and  mid  tempo  parts  along  with  a  couple  of  tracks  being  instrumentals  and  as  the  album  progresses  a  brief  use  of  trumpets,  saxophones  and  violins  can  also  be  heard  as  well  a  few  songs  also  adding  in  a  small  amount  of  clean  vocals.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  French  and  cover  French  History  and  Dark  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Grylle  are  a  very  great  sounding  medieval  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out t his  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "France,  qui  te  veult  mal"  "Loz  en  Croissant"  "Le  Pacte  des  Villes"  and  "Les  Gendarmeaux  de  Dyablerie".  8  out  of  10.

Havohej/Table Of Uncreation/Hells Headbangers/2019 CD Review

lundi 21 octobre 2019 à 21:09

  Havohej  are  a  solo  project  from  Connecticut  that  has  had  an  album  reviewed  before  in  this  zine  and  on  this  recording  goes  into  more  of  an  experimental  and  ritualistic  black  metal  direction  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2019  album  "Table  Of  Uncreation"  which  will  be  released  in  November  by  Hells  Headbangers.

  A  very  dark  and  ritualistic  sound  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  drum  beats  a  few  seconds  later  which  also  leads  to  a  heavier  direction.  Bestial  growls  can  also  be  heard  at  times  while  the  slower  sections  of  the  songs  show  an  influence  of  doom  metal  as  well  as  the  songs  also  adding  in  a  great  amount  of  high  pitched  black  metal  screams.

  At  times  the  music  also  gets  very  experimental  and  avant  garde  sounding  while  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  also  add  in  a  decent  amount  of  blast  beats.  A  small  amount  of  dark  sounding  melodies  can  also  be  heard  in  some  of  the  guitar  riffing  along  with  one  track also  introducing  ritualistic  whispers  onto  the  recording.

  When  tremolo  picking  is  utilized  it  also  gives  the  songs  more  of  a  raw  feeling  as  well  as  all  of  the  musical  instruments  also  having  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  along  with  all  of  the  tracks  also  sounding  very  different  from  each  other.  The  production  sounds  very  dark,  raw  and  lo-fi  while  the  lyrics  cover  occultism  and  blasphemy  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Haveohej  and  while  it  is  very  different  from  the  earlier  material,  I  can  still  see  fans  of  experimental,  ritualistic  and  occult  black  metal  being  into  the  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "God  Off  All  Constellation"  "Seven  Jinn"  "Table  Of  Uncreation"  and  "Before  Them  And  Behind  Them".  8  out  of  10.

lundi 21 octobre 2019 à 07:54

  Hvile  I  Kaos  are  a  musical  project  from  southern  California  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  plays  a  mixture  of  cellestic  black metal,  ritual  and  chamber  music  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2019  ep  "Black  Morning,  Winter  Green"  which  will  be  released  in  December  by  Red  Nebula,

  Cello's  start  off  the  album  and  are  also  used  as  a  lead  instrument  throughout  the  recording  while  also  capturing  the  aggression  of  black  metal  at  times.  Most  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  along  with  the  songs  also  adding  in  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.

  The  songs  also  add  in  elements  of  ritual  and  chamber  music  while  one  track  also  introduces  classical  guitars  onto  the  recording.  Most  of  the  music  is  instrumental  along  with  the  percussion  also  giving  the  songs  more  of  a  tribal  feeling  when  they  are  utilized  as  well  as  the  tracks  also  having  their  avant  garde  moments,  spoken  word  parts  are  also  added  onto  the  outro.

  On  this  recording  Hvile  O  Kaos  remains  true  to  his  mixture  of  cellestic  black  metal,  ritual  and  chamber  music  which  he  established on  his  previous  release.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  while  the  song  themes  focus  on  Satanism  and  Occultism.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Hvile  I  Kaos  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  occult  black  metal,  ritual  and  chamber  music,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Grand  Darkness  Engulfs".  8  out  of  10.

Tragediens Trone/Self Titled/Osmose Productions/2019 CD Review

lundi 21 octobre 2019 à 05:25

  Tragediens  Trone  are  a  band  from  Norway  that  plays  a  very  cold  and  esoteric  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  titled  2019  album  which  will  be  released  in  November  by  Osmose  Productions.

  Dark  soundscapes  start  off  the  album  along  with  a  brief  use  of  spoken  word  samples  before  going  into  a  heavier  direction.  When  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  can  be  heard  which  also  gives  the  songs  more  of  a  raw  feeling  along  with  the  vocals  being  mostly  deep  yet  angry  black  metal  screams.

  When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  along  with  the  songs  also  adding  in  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.  All  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to t hem  while  clean  vocals  can  also  be  heard  briefly.

  Ritualistic  chants  are  also  added  on  one  of  the  tracks  along  with  the  music  being  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  90's  but  modern  at  the  same  time.  Synths,  throat  singing  and  whispers  can  also  be  heard  briefly  and  as  the  album  progresses  the  riffs  start  adding  in  a  small  amount of  melody,  a  couple  of  the  tracks  are  also  very  long  and  epic  in  length  and  acoustic  guitars  can  also  be  heard  briefly.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  spiritual  awakening  and  apocalypticism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Tragediens  Trone  are  a  very  great  sounding  cold  and  esoteric  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Cold  Depths  Of  Solitude"  "Stygian  Fluke"  and  "Siphon  Anima".  8  /5  out  of  10.

Bestial Goat Desecrator Interview

dimanche 20 octobre 2019 à 23:58
For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

I am M.F (Vocal) who answers the following interview.

Yes, the band was created between a talk with H.B with whom I maintain good communication and we work separately each in their country.



So far you have released a demo, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical style you went for on the recording?

We have just released our DEMO and it has had very good acceptance among the underground movement, they have written to us from everywhere asking how to obtain our material and our plans for the future.

The style we use or rather we look for is the old WAR BLACK METAL Fast and violent riffs with a battery that does not give truce for breaks.



Some of your songs cover satanic themes, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in the dark arts?

Of course, Satanism has always existed in lyrics like ours. We are thinking people and worshipers of darkness, having as reference a supreme being who is Lucifer who guides us and empowers us to continue spreading his word. I am Luciferian one more warrior.

Not the "Christian Metal" that's pure bullshit.


You also cover war themes, are there any historical wars that have had an influence on your songwriting?

Personally yes.

The armed conflict that we live in El Salvador and the fascinating attraction that I have towards the Second World War. I believe that the world should continue its course and we as a human plague must be exterminated as such.


What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Bestial Goat Desecrator'?

He is our character with whom we express ourselves. A desecrating goat which is dedicated to exterminate and sodomized damn Christians. A war goat, that is us.

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

It was created by: Mortensis a Mexican illustrator artist.

Some ideas and details were provided by me.

A mini army of goats ready to recruit to begin the extermination.


Currently there are only 2 members in the band, are your interested in expanding the line up or do you prefer to remain a duo?

At the moment we are working well and do not need anyone else.


The members live in Mexico and El Salvador, what kind of impact does this have on the musical style?

We each live in their country of origin and choosing gender and style was not complicated since we seemed to do so in that style.


The demo was released on 'Nebula Forest Productions', can you tell us a little bit more about this label?

It was launched online by Nebula Forest Productions on the official YouTube channel and is about to appear in physical format.

The Label is mine (M.F).

I have been proud to work with bands from many countries and I plan to continue doing so.


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

We have received quite a few good comments about the demo and the music we are making. A lot of maniac lover to the genus write to us in private that we are doing things well as it should.


What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part of?

For my part continue working in the best possible way, for everything there is time.

H.B continues its projects in the same way working and producing material.


When can we expect a full length and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

The full-length album is already being prepared and it is something we hope to show you very soon, I have thought of an outside label to edit it in all types of Vinyl, Tape, CD format.

Presentations if we think there are contacts from both H.B and mine to be able to play in Mexico and Colombia and possibly visit some countries of Central America.


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?

Ampütator is our greatest inspiration to create B.G.D.

I listen to BLACK METAL today as many years ago, that will not change.


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

Support the Underground!

Goat as Fuck !!!
