Benighted In Sodom/Carrier Of Poison Apples/I, Voidhanger Records/2019 CD Review

vendredi 18 octobre 2019 à 08:48

  Benighted  In  Sodom  are  a  solo  project  originally from  the  United  States  but  now  resides  in  Finland  and  plays  a  depressive  form  of  post  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2019  album  "Carrier  Of  Poison  Apples"  which  will  be  released  in  December  by  I,  Voidhanger  Records.

  Spoken  word  parts  start  off  the  album  before  going  into  a  heavier  musical  direction  while clean  singing  can  also  be  heard  quite  a  bit  throughout  the  recording.  A  great portion  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  along  with  the  solos  and  leads  being  done  in  a  very  melodic  post  rock  and  shoegaze  direction.

  Clean  playing  can  also  be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  along  with  all  of  the  musical  instruments  also  sounding  very  powerful.  The  songs  also  mix  in  a  great  amount  of  depressive  black  metal/rock  elements  as  well  as  the  music  also  being  very  heavily  influenced  by  goth  and  darkwave,  grim  vocals  can  also  be  heard  briefly  and  there  is  also  a  cover  of  Nirvana's  "Heart  Shaped  Box"  and  a  small  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  can  be  heard  on  the  closing  track  which  is  also  an  instrumental.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  negative  existentialism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Benighted  In  Sodom  are  a  very  great  sounding  depressive  post  black  metal  solo  project  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical,  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Dead  By  33"  "Raised  Southern  Baptist"  and  "Never  Ever  After".  8  out  of  10.

  Ploughshare  are  a  band  from  Australia  that  plays  a  mixture  of  black  and  death  metal  with  some  elements  of   with  some  elements  of  doom  metal,  noise  rock,  post  punk  and  electronic  ambient  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2019  ep  "Tellurian  Insurgency"  which  will  be  released  in  November  by  I,  Voidhanger  Records.

  Distorted  soundscapes  along  with  some  spoken  word  samples  start  off  the  album  along  with  some  touches  of  harsh  noise  before  going  into  a  very  fast  and  brutal  direction  which  also  uses  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats.  Vocals  bring  in  a  mixture  of  black  metal  screams  and  death  metal  growls.

  A  decent  amount  of  melody  can  also  be  heard  in  some  of  the  guitar  riffing  along  with  the  slower  sections  of  the  songs  also  adding  in  elements  of  doom  metal.  A  couple  of  the  tracks  are  long  and  epic  in  length  while  the  tremolo  picking  in t he  fast  riffs  also  gives  the  songs  more  of  a  raw  feeling.

  Throughout  the  recording  you  can  also  hear  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  along  with  the  music  also  adding  in  elements  of  post  punk  and  noise  rock.  Dissonant  structures  can  also  be  heard  in  some  parts  of  the  riffs  and  guitar  leads  and  the  solos  are  also  done  in  a  melodic  style  at  times  and  as  the  ep  progresses  electronic  ambient  sounds  can  also  be  heard  briefly  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  scientific  and  philosophical  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Ploughshare  are  a  very  great  sounding  experimental  mixture  of  black  and  death  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Abreactive  Trance"  and  "Indistinguishable  Beast  Of  Flight".  8  out  of  10.

Shadow's Mortuary/Kuoleman Portit/Purity Through Fire/2019 CD Review

jeudi 17 octobre 2019 à 10:28

  Shadow's  Mortuary  are  a  band  from  Finland  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  on  this  recording  plays  a  very  traditional  form  of  Finnish  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2019  album  "Kouleman  Portit"  which  will  be  released  in  November  by  Purity  Through  Fire.

  A  very  dark  and  heavy  punk  influenced  sound  starts  off  the  album  along  with  the  vocals  being  mostly  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams.  All  of  the  musical  instruments  also  have  a very  powerful  sound  to  them  as  well  as  the  music  also  being  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  mid  90's  Finnish  style.

  The  riffs  also  add  in  a  decent  amount  of  melody  while  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  also  use  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  or  tremolo  picking  which  also  gives  the  music  more  of  a  raw  feeling.  Throughout  the  recording  you  can  also  hear  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.

  On  this  recording  Shadow's  Mortuary  remains  true  to  the  old  school  style  of  Finnish  black  metal  from  previous  releases.  the  production  sounds  very  raw  and  old  school  while  the lyrics  are  written  in  Finnish  and  cover  darkness,  misanthropy,  hatred  and  anti  Religion  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Shadow's  Mortuary  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  Finnish  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Sielun  Tuhkaa"  "Virran  Viemi,  Tulen  Tuomo"  and  "Ouroboros".  8  out  of  10.
