Rituael/Revelation 6:17/2018 EP Review

mercredi 14 février 2018 à 03:39

  Rituael  are  a  band  from  Singapore  that  plays  a  very  raw  and  old  school  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of their self  released  2018  ep  "Revelation  6:17".

  A  very  dark  sounding  intro  starts  off  the  ep  along  with  some  thunder  sounds  as  well  as  some  melodic  yet  ritualistic  chanting  before  going  into  a  heavier  musical  direction  while  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  the  riffs  also  bring  in  a  decent  amount  of  dark  sounding  melodies.

  Vocals  are  mostly  grim  yet  high  pitched  black  metal s creams  while  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  also  use  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  which  also  gives  the  songs  a  more  raw  feeling  along  with  the  music  being  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  90's  era  as  well  as  the  tracks  also bringing  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts,  clean  playing  can  also  be  heard  briefly  and  when  guitar  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  fashion  and  they  close  the  ep  with  a  very  dark  and  disturbing  sounding  intro.

  Rituael  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  is  very  raw,  traditional  and  melodic  sounding,  the  production  sounds  very  raw  and  old  school  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  and  blasphemous  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Rituael  are  a  very  great  sounding  raw  and  old  school  black  metal b and  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical genre,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "One  Eye  Dominate"  and  "Revelation  6:17".  8  out  of  10.

Reshitivist Interview

lundi 12 février 2018 à 03:52
1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?
Reshitivist is a one man blackened death metal project from Melbourne, Australia with dark music and lyrics that display a misanthropic and depressive attitude. Reshitivist is currently made up of multi instrumentalist and audio engineer "Bage".

2.How would you describe your musical sound?
A dark, drum and guitar driven, cold and heavy progression between various sub genres of death metal with a symphonic twist in some areas.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with your music?
Depresion, anarchy, transcendence, misanthropy, philosophy, why the fuck are others the ways they are?

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Reshitivisit'?
Reshitivist came from the TV show Trailer Park Boys. The word recidivist means one who offends and breaks the law constantly and often. My first project is called "Law Breaker", so I thought it was appropriate to follow up on that with Recidivist; but then out of the sake of tribute to TPB I called it Reshitivist. It's like recidivist but shittier ;)

5.With this project you record everything by yourself, are you open to working with other musicians or do you prefer to remain solo?
I'm in a number of bands with musicians of varying skill and background. I prefer making music myself.

6.You reside in both Australia and Siberia, what affect does this have on the musical style you play?
When in Siberia I play a lot of guitar and no drums. My music tends to sound happier in Siberia than when I'm home in Australia. Believe it or not, the winters in Australia feel colder and lonelier than in Siberia and I think that feeling of solitude cuts through my music a little more.

7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black and death metal?
Pretty poor actually! I've had a few people from various parts of Europe who really like it and share it actively, but Australian's don't seem to get into it as much as I expected them too.

8.Are you involved with any other musical projects or bands or have been in the past?
In chronological order:
Trophyknife
Bear Witness
Caged Grave
Overpower
Bombs are Falling
Limnal
Phantom Panda Power Wizard Master Smasher

9.Where do you see yourself heading into as a musician in the future?
Not far from the comfort of my home studio, or wherever I want to go

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?
Viking Crown
Slaughter to Prevail
Pantera (all time fav)
He is Legend
Black Sabbath
Silencer

11.What are some of your non musical interests?
Gardening, law and legal research, audio engineering, cooking, learning, cannabis and DMT.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Thanks for the interview and fight the power!
