Nero Barlume/Abyssus/Winterwolf Records/2016 EP Review

vendredi 18 novembre 2016 à 04:27

  Nero  Barlume  are  a  solo  project from  Italy  that has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  plays  a  very  atmospheric  and  depressive  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of his  2016 ep  "Abyssus"  which  was released  by Winterwolf  Records.

  A  very  dark  ambient  orientated  sound  starts  off  the  ep  along  with  some  atmospheric  flutes  and  after  awhile  the  music  starts  going  into  more  of  a  heavier  and  depressive  style  that  also  introduces  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  onto  the  recording  and  both  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  A  lot  of  times  the  music  is  very  atmospheric  and  when  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  very  dark  yet  melodic  fashion  and  the  music  also  gets  very  experimentla  at  times  and  the  tremolo  picking  when  it  is  utilized  gives  the  music  more  of  a  raw  feeling  while  both  of  the  tracks  stick  to  either  a  slow  or  mid  paced  musical  direction  and  clean  guitars  can  be  heard  on  the  second  track.

  Nero  Barlume  creates  another  recording  that  remains  true  to  the  atmospheric  and  depressive  black  metal  style  of  his  previous  release,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  Introspective  and  Darkness  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Nero  Barlume  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  atmospheric  and  depressive  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Abyssus  II".  8  out  of  10.

ProFanatism/Hereticon/Under The Sign Of Garazel Productions/2016 CD Review

  ProFanatism  are  a  band  with  members  from  both  Poland  and  Norway  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  plays  a  very  raw  and  heavy  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2016  album  "Hereticon"  which  was  released  by  Under  The  Sign  Of  Garazel  Productions.

  Whispers  and  a  militant  style  intro  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  classical  samples  before  going  into  a  heavier  and  dark  direction  which  also  introduces  melodic  guitar  leads  onto  the  recording  along  with  some  grim  black  metal  screams  that  also  get  very  high  pitched  at  times  and  blast  beats  can  be  heard  when  the  music  speeds  up.

  During  the  faster  sections  of  the songs  the  music  brings  in  more  of  a  raw  black  metal  style  and  you  can  also  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  the  recording and  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  the  spoken  word  parts  when  they  are  utilized  give  the  music  more  of  a  ritualistic  feeling and  clean  guitars  can  also  be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  a  later  track  also  brings  in  a  small  amount  of  acoustic  guitars.

  ProFanatism  creates  a  recording  that  remains  true  to  the  raw  and  heavy  style  of  black  metal  from  their  previous  release  while  also  getting  more  experimental  and  adding  in  new  things  to t heir  style,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  a  mixture  of  English  and  Polish  and  cover  dark,  occult  and  anti  Christianity  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  album  from  ProFanatism  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  heavy,  ritualistic,  and  aggressive  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Darkness  In  The  Eyes  Of  God"  "Dance  With  A  Serpents"  and  "Legion  In  My  Soul".  8  out  of  10.

  Atmospheric  soundscapes  start  off  the  album  along  with  some  heavy  guitars  and  spoken  word  parts  a  few  seconds  later  and  the  riffs  also  bring  in  a  decent  amount  of  melody  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  can  be  heard  which  gives  the  songs  more  of  a  raw  feeling.

  Uprising  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  is  very  raw,  aggressive  and  melodic  and  also  brings  in  more  of  an  old  school  approach  which  also  gets  mixed  in  with  a  more  modern  sound,  the  production  sounds  very  powerful  while  the  lyrics  cover  Nihilism,  Satanism  and  Revolution  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Uprising  are  a  very  great  sounding  nihilistic,  satanic  black  metal  solo  project  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre, you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Uprise"  "Gather  The  Dark  Spirits"  and  "Behold  the  Eternity  Of  The  Stars".  8  out  of  10.

  Clean  guitars  start  off  the  album  and  after  a  minute  the  music  starts  going  into  a  heavier  direction  before  going  into  a  very  fast  and  raw  direction  that  also uses  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  while  the  vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  and  the  riffs  also  use  a  decent  amount  of  melody.

  Throughout  the  recording  you  can  hear  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  they  also  mix  the  clean  playing  into  some  of  the  later  tracks  which  also  gives  the  music  more  of  an  atmospheric  edge  and  when  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  fashion  and  some of  the  tracks are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  and  one  track  brings  in  a  few  seconds  of  soundscpaes  before  returning  back  to  a  heavier  direction.

  Murg  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  is  very  dark,  raw,  atmospheric  and  contemporary  sounding,  the  production  sounds  very  raw  and  heavy  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in Swedeish  and  cover  dark and  desolate  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Murg  are  a  very  great  sounding  raw  and  atmospheric  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Sorgeblot  I  Gangara"  "Masterans  Resa  i  Morket"  and  "Torstens  Kval".  8  out  of  10.

Mortespermia Interview

jeudi 17 novembre 2016 à 06:26
1.Can you give us an introduction to this musical project?
Mortespermia was born as a sickness, a miasma conjecture, raised from the coffin where some projects rest and rot (some on hold, others split up), it was developed in the nest of vertiginous torment, between the leg of the crackhead whores, disperse in the air as cigarettes smokes from my black lungs, from countless hangovers, from my detachment to human life and a lot of hate, despair, sarcasm anxiety and devotion!

2.How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the demos?
Raw, nasty as fuck,narcose, maniac, hateful, despair, euphoria, suicidal, devotion, ill, sick, murder, masturbation, rape, blaspheme,CCCXXXIII, Evil, dense atmosphere, fuck off, bones, bleeding, rotten
and disgusting… organic production which can be compared to decayed body decomposition…

3.How do the song lyrics on the demos differ from the stuff you have written with your other projects?
It have a little bit of what I wrote to in the past, but it is more decadent, nasty and of course more of a dubious taste kind of thing, rape of faith and rape of hope! I still saying that it is not indicated to political correct ones! It started as a very private hell, the grey and ill environment I was falling; then the visions
only got worse! Song lyrics are like Chaosfera shooting at every side aiming hearts and heads!

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Mortespermia'?
Morte in Portuguese means Death, the most arcane and unstoppable force of existence, and something I’m obsessed about, be it on spiritual, occult or physical level, spermia comes from panspermia, and it also
mean seed, it is the cum of death, the sinister coitus of necro-narcose, … Said that, is clear the message, life is only a mere shadow of the immensity of death! Praised be Deathkult CCCXXXIII

5.You have released 3 demos this year with this musical project alone, what was the decision behind getting all these releases out in the same year?
 Actually I have 4 demos released this year, the first one is a self-titled bloodstained artifact released (early in this year) under the black banner of the might and necroccult label Aniquilación Satánica Prod. As for the decision, well it is quite simple and there's nothing special nor goals behind it; I want to get rid of this recordings so I can write more kathartic  uncompromised black metal kind of shit, free myself from a lot of anxiety and chaos inside me throughout art and the cursed exXxpression of the void, if you think four foul releases are too much for one year, a new miasma infected artifact (full-length) will be released anytime soon by Aniquilación Satánica… I also have two demos from the first recordings sessions (from the same sessions from Negativizmo Ritval, xXx Raw xXx, Abominaçõez…) but I’m not sure it will be release this year though!

6.Also the project is all solo, how do you feel this project differs from anything else that you have done so far?
Yeah, this project is solo, but I had some contribution from my crime accomplices, I had three guest vocalists desecrating on Abominaçõez &Atrocidadez, these two unreleased demos I talked about above I had two different vocalist vociferating one in each demo, I’m open to work with other vocalists,  but the point is, I want to have full control of creative process, songwriting and all shit, my megalomania with
this project (creative side I mean)  is absolute obsessive, as it started with very personal lyrics induced by paranoia, nausea and hangovers, I feel like this project have something special, the songs are really good, good riffs, dense atmosphere, absurd lyricism. But it is not to everyone for a lot of consequences.

7.How have black metal fans so far reacted to the sound that is presented on the demos?
abyssus abyssum invocat, you feel me? Some think it sucks, some think it is sick and understand the insanity.

8.Are your other projects currently active?
Most of them are on hold or split up.

9.Where do you see the musical style of this project heading into musically during the future?
Is hard to say actually, this new full-length have improved in “sound quality” if compared to the previous one, the reason is; because all of the previous demos was record in the same week, with the same
stuffs under a very fucked up state of mind, this one is like gaze to long into the abyss (I was) and the abyss gaze back into me…still raw, still Mortespermia “no fucking compromises” spirit, personally I think it is better than a lot of shit around the so called black metal scene.

10.You have mentioned some occult references in other interviews, what are some of the forms of 'occultism' that you are interested in?
Luciferianism is what I really got into; but always trying to found my own way by interpretation, because in my point of view if you claim to be your own god, you have to be wise enough to know that almost everything came from human hands and mouth, so be smart to found the inner truth, and be sure it is your own truth! But if I’m my own god, personally so to speak, I’m also my own demon, and life is a living
hell, Mortespermia is more about human condition than anything else, and it is an exXxpression and exXxtension from the demon-I, the monster of carbon and ammonia.

11.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Aids to my enemies is what I wish, may them perish slowly in agony! Hard drugs to the whore and fuck them hard, alcohol to us, drink to the end of one each other! Vltimato ritval kill yourself and kill us too! We deserve it, we deserve death! Onaviulidetna Orputse to denigrate you all and curse your souls!
XLVIII
