Sic Semper Tyrannis/Self Titled/The Ritual Productions/2020 EP Review

dimanche 3 mai 2020 à 23:42

  Sic  Semper  Tyrannis  are  a  band  from  France  that  plays  a  very  old  school  and  keyboard  orientated  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  titled  2020  ep  which  was  released  by  The  Ritual  Productions.

  Tragic  sounding  keyboards  start  off  the  ep  which  also  mixes  in  with  the  heavier  sections  of  the  music  at  times.  Melodies  can  also  be  heard  in  some  of  the  guitar  riffing  while  all  of  the  musical  instruments  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  while  the  vocals a re  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams.

  Death  metal  growls  can  also  be  heard  in  some  parts  of  the  recording  while  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  also  add  in  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  which  also  gives  the  music  more  of  a  raw  feeling.  Most  of  the  tracks  are  also  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  90's  era.

  Throughout  the  recording  you  can  also  hear  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  along  with  the  guitar  solos  and  leads  being  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  when  they  are  utilized  and  as  the  ep  progresses  a  brief  use  of  clean  vocals  can  also  be  heard.  The  production  sounds  very  raw  and  old  school  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  a  mixture  of  French  and  English  and  cover  dark  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Sic  Semper  Tyrannis  are  a  very  great  sounding  old  school  and  keyboard  orientated  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "In  Singularity"  and  "Sic  Semper  Tyrannis".  8  out  of  10.

Morbid Winds Interview

dimanche 3 mai 2020 à 22:33
1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

Diabolizer: Hail Satan! Their fucking loss! We're the fire of hell that burns the stigma on the fucking asses of the pseudo-metalists, we're the storm that brings decay and death, we're the darkness, the abyss in which the whole being is enchanted. The Horde was created on the initiative of Bloodwhip and mine, which quickly entailed efforts to find a suitable, engaged dead heart singer, which became Cryptic Lust!!!! Arrrggghhhh!!!!

2.So far you have released 2 demo's, musically how do they differ from each other?

Diabolizer: The atmosphere. It's fucking black metal. That's it and that's it! We don't impose guidelines on ourselves to compose a new piece of gun. The whole process leaks out of us with drops of stinking black. We allow the abyss and hell to speak through us when our inner demons find that the time has just come...

3.All of the band members are also involved with other bands, what is it that you bring into the music of 'Morbid Winds' that you are not able to do with your other groups?

Diabolizer: Every band we play in is completely different from each other. Starting with the line-up (in no hordes are the same people playing although the line-ups intertwine), through the music, lyrics, approach and self-expression. Each horde we play in is a completely different manifestation of hell and dark. I guess, you can hear that?!

4.Can you tell us a little bit more about the lyrical topics and subjects you explored on both of the demo's and how would you describe your progress as songwriters on both of the releases?

Cryptic Lust: The lyrical themes in Morbid Winds are my own manifestations of darkness. The deeper meaning is left for every listener to find individually.

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Morbid Winds'?

Diabolizer: That's what I leave to the potential audience. All I can say is that the name has a few meanings for me, the keys to finding them will not necessarily lead you to the door... Let's not take it for granted, even though it seems a simple name...

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

Diabolizer: All I can say here is that the author wouldn't want to split up the whole that stands behind "The Ruin of Forgotten Desolation" Cover, music, lyrics are three unholy elements that are the symbol of the corpse of Morbid Winds' message. If someone wants to break it down into the first factors, then go ahead. Let everyone enlighten themselves with a black light!

7.Has the band had any opportunities to do any live shows?

Diabolizer: No. The assumption at the beginning was to exclude potential gigs and that's not likely to change. Experience death at home. Let it crawl out of its tangled corners in the shadows!

8.The first demo was released on 'Worship Tapes' do you feel this label was very helpful when it comes to getting your music out there heard?

Diabolizer: The second demo also came out on tape with Worship Tapes! It's the perfect label for us cultivating the old rules, transforming our devotion and dedication to black art into action! Whoever is to hear Morbid Winds will be given it. The rest of the posers should die in ignorance...

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

Diabolizer: They've been possessed and fucked to death! 666

10.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?

Diabolizer: All are more or less active. Whoever's sitting in this swamp should keep up to date. Access to this information is at your fingertips. But this year will be a crushing blow. Believe me! Some of the hordes I play have recently released new material. Soon some will release new ones from the darkness. Our dead forge continues, the devil's metal is pierced in the fire of hell all the time. Death does not fall asleep!

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

Diabolizer: As I wrote earlier, we do not impose on ourselves the direction we are going to take. The new material is already composed, partly recorded. There's no exception, it'll still be black metal that you motherfuckers will be drinking this year!

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

Diabolizer : It's a fucking thing, but I'm not hiding that perhaps the most profound influence, reaching to the core of my IAM, had hordes of so-called second wave of black metal... And on the headphones I'm just fucking Goatsmegma with its very successful "Demonic Goat smegma Eating Ritual" - check it out, ask in Morbid Chapel Records!!! I also listen to the new Förgjord "Laulu Kuolemasta" or Aggressive Mutilator... it's just a micro drop in the black river that surrounds me every day. And remember, MZ412 rules!

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

Diabolizer: Worship the Devil and support the underground! Hail Satan!

  A  very  fast,  raw  and  melodic  sound  starts  off  the  demo  which  also  uses  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats.  All  of  the  musical  instruments  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  along  with  the  vocals  being  mostly  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams  and  the  music  is  also  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  90's  era.

  Pagan  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  is  very  raw,  old  school  and  melodic  in  the  90's  tradition  as  well  as  having  songs  that  sound  like  they  could  of  easily  been  recorded  and  release  in  that  era.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  Paganism,  Shamanism  and  Mysticism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Pagan  are  a  very  great  sounding  raw,  melodic  and  old  school  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  re-issue.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "The  Longing  And  The  Ancient  Ones"  "Shamanic  Flames"  and  "The  Ascending".  8  out  of  10.

dimanche 3 mai 2020 à 05:43

  Eave  are  a  band  from  Maine  that  plays  a  very  depressive  and  dissonant  form  of  post  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2020  album  "Phantoms  Made  Permanent"  which  will  be  released  in  September  by  Bindrune  Recordings.

  A  very  dark  and  heavy  sound  starts  off  the  album  while  all  of  the musical  instruments  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.  Vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  yet  depressive  black  metal  screams  along  with  the  riffs  also  adding  in  a  great  amount  of  melody  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  can  be  heard.

  When  tremolo  picking  is  utilized  it  also  gives  the  songs  more  of  a  raw  feeling  while  the  clean  playing  also  introduces  elements  of  post  rock  onto  the  recording.  The  songs  also  add  in  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  along  with  a  great  portion  of  the  tracks  being  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  At  times  the  music  also  has  its  atmospheric  moments  along  with  some  of  the  riffing  also  adding  in  some  dissonant  structures.  Some  of  the  tracks  also  mix  old  school   and  modern  elements  together  as  well  as  the  guitar  solos  and  leads  being  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  when  they  are  utilized,  a  later  song  also  introduces  acoustic  guitars  onto  the  recording  and  as  the  elements  progresses  touches  of  shoegaze  can  also  be  heard  briefly  and  a  alter  song  also  adds  in  a  small  amount  of  death  metal  growls.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  uncertainty,  death,  mysticism  and  nature  themes. 

  In  my  opinion  Eave  are  a  very  great  sounding  dissonant  and  depressive  post  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "A  Godless  Frame"  "Gait  Of  The  Ghost"  and  "Visage".  8  out  of  10.
