Pa Vesh En/A Ghost/Iron Bonehead Productions/2018 EP Review

mardi 12 juin 2018 à 01:43

  Pa  Vesh  En  are  a  solo  project  from  Belarus  that  plays  a  very  raw  form  of  ambient  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2018  ep  "A  Ghost"  which  will  be  released  in  July  by  Iron  Bonehead  Productions.

  Atmospheric  drones  start  off  the  ep  along  with  some  heavy  and  melodic  riffing  a  few  seconds  later  while  the  vocals  are  depressive  black  metal  screams  along  with  both  of  the  tracks  being  very  long  and  epic  in  length  as  well  as  mixing  the  dark  ambient  elements  into  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  a  more  raw  feeling  while  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  at  times  the  music  gets  very  experimental  as  well  as  some  melodic  guitar  leads  being  used  briefly  and  the  music  captures  ambience  without  the  use  of  a  synth.

  Pa  Vesh  En  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  a  very  raw  and  depressive  form  of  black  metal  and  mixes  it  with  dark  ambient  to  create  something  very  different,  the  production  sounds  very  dark,  raw  and  lo-fi  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  and  supernatural  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Pa  Vesh  En  are  a  very  great  sounding  raw  ambient  black  metal  solo  project  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Haunting  And  Mourning".  8  out  of  10.

  Temple  Desecration  are  a  band  from  Poland  that  plays  a  bestial  mixture  of  black  and  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2018  album  "Whirlwinds  Of  Fathomless  Chaos"  which  will  be  released  in  July  by  Iron  Bonehead  Productions.

  Spoken  word  samples  start  off  the  album  before  going  into  a  very  fast  and  raw  musical  direction  which  also  uses  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  pickings  and  blast  beats  along  with  the  vocals  being  mostly  bestial  death  metal  growls  as  well  as  some  black  metal  screams  also  being  used  at  times.

  Dark  sounding  melodies  can  also  be  heard  in  some  of  the  guitar  riffing  while  the  songs  also bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  along  with  the  music  also  being  very  heavily  rooted  in  war  metal  as  well  as  some  of  the  tracks  being  very  long  and  epic  in  length  and  the  music  always  remains  very  heavy,  raw  and  brutal  sounding  and  spoken  word  parts  also  return  as  the  album  progresses  as  well  as  a  small  amount  of  grim  whispers  being  introduced  onto  the  recording.

  In  my  opinion  Temple  Desecration  are  a  very  great  sounding  bestial  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  "Nameless  Hordes"  and  "Blood  offering".  8/5  out  of  10.

Ascensions Fall Interview

dimanche 10 juin 2018 à 06:19
1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?
1).  Of course. Ascensions Fall is a blackmetal project that I formed in 2014 after leaving a then Death Metal band who I was the drummer for. At the time I didn't know how to play anything but the drums. So I brought a guitar, practiced for 6 months and started writing what has become Spirits Of The Lost, the oldest set list of songs.

2.How would you describe the musical sound that has been presented on the recoridngs you have released so far?
 I'd describe Ascensions Falls sound as an influx of both aggressive and depressive tones. However I write with a lot of influence from both melodic-black metal and melodic-death metal bands so I also refer Ascensions Fall as melodic-black metal as well as those elements are definitely there.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with the music?
3).  The lyrical content is built up on depression, solitude, sorrow, Earth and nature itself. Some of my lyrics dig into humanitarian destruction and human extinction.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Ascensions Fall'?
4). I was pretty young when I initially began planning Ascensions Fall, so the name was something I accidentally just kind of came up with without an explanation of how or why. Although, on a religious perspective I have been told that there is (or was) an event called Ascensions Day or Day Of Ascension and that Ascensions Fall would be the opposite of this events succession meaning Hell would reign supremacy and dominion. I don't know if this is true, but hey, if it is that's pretty badass


5.Since 2017 you have released a great amount of material, do you spend a great amount of time and effort writing and creating music?
5).  Yes I definitely do. Music is really something I've always done. I couldn't imagine not ever doing music in any way shape or form. Any chance I get I write or record or just generally practice. It's one of things where I'll wake up and I'm straight into it or when I get home from work I head straight to the music room. I'm always writing music anyhow so there is plenty of Ascensions Fall to come!

6.On the albums, you record everything by yourself, would you be open to bringing other musicians into this musical project?
6).  There was a time where I wanted to play a few live shows. It's in the works, trying to find live members and what not. Whether it happens or not I'm not completely sure of. However, there will something new announced soon around the addition of members. Although I do like the freedom of doing everything myself, you have your own sound and style on every instrument and its great to hear all of those styles and sounds pulled together.


7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?
7).  The responses I have received have been positive which makes me happy of course! I'm not sure how far or in what places my music has been heard but for the small number of people who do support the project I strongly thank them.

8.Can you tell us a little bit more about your other musical project 'Farrore'?
😎.  Farrore was just a bedroom metal project between myself and a good friend of mine. In my opinion, everything but the music was approached amateurly. It's a dead project now and I doubt anything new will come. As much as I disregard it's existence I somewhat still stand by it as it plays an important role in myself as a musician. I've definitely learnt things from it. However, I have a medieval and folk metal project called Byrhtnoth that I prefer to talk of.

9.Where do you see yourself heading into as a musician in the future?
).  I've never had a vision as to where I will and won't be as a musician in the future. I just love writing music and hope that I keep doing so til I meet my end


10.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?
10).  As a young drummer I was hugely influenced by bands like Machine Head, Lamb Of God, Slayer and Opeth (the main ones anyway). But the older I got I dwelled into folk metal and eventually Black Metal. As a musician I'm hugely influenced by those aforementioned bands and Dissection, Immortal, Amon Amarth, Kalmah and nowadays Winterfylleth has definitely played a part in my influential advances as a musician and song writer.


11.What are some of your non musical interests?
11). I definitely like gaming. Whether it's retro or old school. For me old school would the SNES or N64. But those and modern gaming. I also like to mess around and design album arts. I actually designed the album art for the Ascensions Fall demo 'Usvikelig'.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
12).  New Ascensions Fall is ready to wash ashore later this year. New things are definitely happening so hang around and get some new tunes! & Thanks for having me for an interview and a review for Spirits Of The Lost. The support is awesome! \m/
