Red Bible Black/Bligghhtted/Merdumgiriz/2015 Split Album Review

lundi 9 novembre 2015 à 09:54

  This  is  a  review  of  a  split  album  between  Italy/Turkey's  Red Bible  Black  and  Turkey's  Bligghhtted  which  was  released  by  Merdumgiriz  and  we  will  start  off  the  review  with  Red  Bible  Black  a  band  that  plays  a  brutal  form  of  satanic  black  metal.

  Their  side  of  the  split starts  out  with  a  very  avant  garde  and  demonic  sounding  intro  that  also  uses  ritualistic  spoken  word  parts  and  a  few  seconds  later  clean  playing  is  added  into  the  music  and  after  the  intro  the  music  goes  for  more  of  a  heavy  death  metal  direction  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  it  brings  in  more  of  a  bestial  black  metal  sound.

  Vocals  are  mostly  bestial  growls  and  blast  beats  can  be  heard  quite  a  bit  in  the  faster  sections  of  the  music  and  the  vocals  also  add  in  a  grim  and  ritualistic  feeling  at  times  while t he  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  the  solos  and  leads  also  remain  true  to  a  blasphemous  style  of  black/death  metal  and  they  also  mix  the  ritualistic,  experimental  and  heavy  parts  together  at  times.

  Red  Bible  Black  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  the raw  and  bestial  black/war  metal  sound  and  mixes  it  with  satanic  death  metal  and  ritualistic  to  create  a  very  evil  and  blasphemous  musical  style,  the  production  on  their  side  of  the  recording  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  cover  Satanism,  Occultism  and  Anti  Christian  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Red  Bible  Black  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  raw,  ritualistic  bestial  black  metal  and  satanic  death  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of  the  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Your  Sons  Into  The  Furnace  Of  Baal"  and  "Kneel  Down  To  The  Altar  Of  Moloch".

  Next  up  is  Bligghhtted  which  continues  the  experimental  black  metal  style  of  previous  recordings.

  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  a  very  fast  and  raw  black  metal  sound  that  uses  a  great  amount  of  grim  screams,  blast  beats  and  melodic  guitar  leads  and  the  songs  also bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  while  the  vocals  almost  get  melodic  at  times  and  most  of  their  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

   You  can  also  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on their  side  of  the  recording  and  as  their  side  of  the  split  progresses  synths  can  be  heard  at  time  and  they  also  take  the  musical  into  an  experimental  direction  and  on  the  second  track  operatic  female  vocals  are  brought  into  the  music  and  on  the  last  track  the  vocals  start  adding  in  death  metal  growls,  depressive  screams  and  an  influence  of  doom  metal.

  Bligghhtted  creates  another  very  experimental  black  metal  recording  with  the  3  songs  they  bring  onto  the  recording  and  all  of  the  tracks  are  very  diverse,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  and  demented  themes.

      In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great sounding  recording  from  Bligghhtted  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  experimental  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of  the  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  "Snakes".

  In  conclusion  I  feel  this  is  a  very  great  sounding  split  and  I  would  recommend  it  to  all  fans  of  experimental  and  satanic  black  metal.  8  out  of  10.

Katachthon/Declaration Of War/Black Sun Cult Productions/2015 EP Review

lundi 9 novembre 2015 à 06:42

  Katachthon  are  a  duo  from  Greece  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  plays  a  Hellenic  form  of  black/war  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2015  ep  "Declaration  Of  War"  which  was  released  on  Black  Sun  Cult  Productions.

  A  very  fast,  raw  and  brutal  war  metal  sound  starts  off  the  ep  along  with  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  and  the  vocals  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  grim  black  metal  screams  and  bestial  death  metal  growls  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  some  of  the  riffs  also  bring  in  a  small  amount  of  melody.

  When  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  very  chaotic  war  metal  fashion  and  the  music  also  brings  in  a  lot  of  Australian  and  Canadian  war  metal  influences  along  with  a  small  touch  of  Black  Witchery  style riffing  and  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  both  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  the whole  ep  remains  true  to  a  very  heavy  and  raw  musical  direction  from  beginning  to  ending  of  the  recording.

  Katachthon  creates  another  recording  that  remains  true  to    to  the  Hellenic  black/war  metal  sound  of  their  previous  recording  and  never  bring in  a  soft  or  weak  moment,  the  production  sounds  very  raw  yet  heavy  at  the  same  time  while  the  lyrics  cover  War  and  Hellenic  Mythology  and  History  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Katachthon  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  black  and  war  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Trembling  Earth"  and  "Into  the  Pits  Of  Tartaros".

Theurgia/AntiPerpetuo/Worship Tapes/2015 EP Review

samedi 7 novembre 2015 à 05:41

  Theurgia  are  a  solo project  from  Venezuela  that  plays  a  very  raw  form  of  black  metal and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2015  ep  "Anti  Perpetuo"  which  was  released  by  Worship  Tapes.

  Spoken  word  samples  start  off  the  ep  and  after  a  few  seconds  the  music  goes  into  a  very  fast  and  raw  black  metal  direction  that  also  utilizes  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  and  high  pitched  screams  and  you  can  also  hear  a  great  amount  of  melody  in  the  guitar  riffing  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.

  Throughout  the  recording  there  is  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  you  can  also  hear  a  brief  use  of  melodic  singing  and  spoken  word  parts  and  some  tracks  also bring  in  a  small  amount  of  clean  playing  as  well  as  a  few  death  metal growls  being  utilized  at  times  and  all  of  the  songs  are  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  90's  European  style.

  Theurgia  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  on  this  recording  that  is  very  raw  and  melodic  bringing  in  a  vibe  that  is  very  close  to  the  90's  Swedish  style,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  nihilism,  philosophy  and  war  themes. 

  In  my  opinion  Theurgia  are  a  very  great  sounding  raw  black  metal  solo  project  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Oscurantis"  and  "Anti  Perpetuo".  8  out  of  10.

Atel Interview

samedi 7 novembre 2015 à 03:39
1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?



Atel is a black metal band from Los Angeles, CA. Sandaramet (myself) is the only permanent member. I use a session drummer because of the sound and simplicity that comes with recording live drums and guitar at the same time. I retain full control over the music and am responsible for all production. No bass guitar is used. These days, most will title Atel as “raw” black metal, but to me this is redundant; all black metal should have some level of raw atmosphere. Anything that does not is not black metal.



2.Recently you have released a demo, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?



Being my first release, I feel the sound is drawn from my influences in a way that is cohesive and uniquely my own. I attempted to create dark melodies that are raw and aggressive, but have a “dsbm” atmosphere to them. The sound is akin to the expression of hatred and death. It was done entirely on a cell phone, so the overall sound stays in the realm of music that is done solely for myself and only finds its ways to listeners who actually want to hear it.





3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with your music?



Misanthropy, the darkness of life (and the wilderness it contains), death, the failings of human existence, melancholy, hatred.



4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Atel'?



Atel is Armenian for “to hate.” While I endorse no political or racial ideologies in my music, it is very obvious that black metal from around the world tends to utilize native tongues, song titles, band names, etc. So, I wanted to use my own language since I am Armenian. Most importantly, it is a simple and short way to encompass the driving ideology of the music while not using anything used before.



5.with the exception of a session drummer you record mostly everything by yourself, are there any plans to turn this into a full time band?



No Atel will remain as is.



6.The demo was released on Depressive Illusions a label that has released plenty of good black metal releases over the years, do you feel honored to be working with this label?



Yes, Depressive Illusions adding me to the roster is a compliment and inspires me to keep on the path knowing that I will have their support going forward and that many bands I enjoy share the label with me.



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



I found Demolishing Life, Embracing Death bootlegged on Russian/Ukrainian sites almost instantly. I just sent a couple CDs from my self-release to Scotland. I have spoken to other black metal fans in South America and other parts of Europe who have given me positive feedback. Look for the demo from Wulfrune Worxx too.



8.Are you also involved with any other bands or musical projects?



No



9.Where do you see yourself heading into as a musician in the future?



The second album is being recorded. The third album is almost done being written, or that material may be used for a split. I started Atel later in life than most and am trying to make up for the lost time with a vengeance. I seek to create a balance between the simplistic, repetitive riffing that makes black metal what it is and subtle complexities to make the songs stand out as my own. I am honing my voice to ensure that it conveys the essence of hatred for this world and all those in it, as well the pain of such an existence (without excessive reverb). My music will always be true/pure black metal. 



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?



I have a very diverse musical background and have played many instruments but black metal is all that I listen to for some time now. As far as the big names: Judas Iscariot, Mutiilation, Satanic Warmaster, Striborg, Drowning the Light, Celestia/Mortifera, Xasthur, Sargeist, Ildjarn, Vardan, Endstille, Katharsis, Pest, Nargaroth, Cosmic Church, Goatmoon, Sapthuran, Clandestine Blaze.



I am currently listening to Paysage D’Hiver. Also, many bands that are “underground” are more prominent listening these days– Ancient Funeral Cult, Nartvind/ Eloe Noir, Draziw, Breadth of Sorrows, Infernal Hate, Lupus Nocturnus, Thromos, Verrater.



11.What are some of your non musical interests?



I have been involved with various forms of “art” for many years.



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



Thank you for the interview. atelblackmetal@gmail.com atelblackmetal.bandcamp.com Fuck you sheepish poser scum running around Los Angeles pretending to be black metal and/or adding “black” in front of your already shit music.

Nicrotek/Hellvete/The Night Of Glory/Wolfmound Production/2015 Split CD Review

jeudi 5 novembre 2015 à 09:02

  This  is  a  review  of  a  split  album  between  Indonesia's   Nicrotek  and  Hellvete   called  "The  Night  Of  Glory"  which  was  released  by  Wolfbound  Production   and  we  will  start  off  the  review  with Nicrotrek  whose  previous  album  I  reviewed  and  plays  n  atmospheric  and  depressive  form  of  ambient  black  metal.

   His  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  a  very  dark  ambient  sound  along  with  some  programmed  beats  a  few  seconds  later  before  adding  in  more  of  a  raw,  melodic  and  depressive  black  metal  sound  that  also  uses  high  pitched  suicidal  screams  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  blast  beats  can  be  heard  and  the  music  also  brings  in  clean  playing  at  times.

  Throughout  his  side  of  the  recording  there  is  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  some of  his  tracks  are  long  and  epic  in  length  and  when  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  melodic  musical  direction  and  his  side  of  the  split  closes  with  Lifelover  and  Trust  covers,  the  production  on  his  side  of  the  recording  sound s very  dark  and  raw  while  th e lyrics  cover  nature  and  depressive  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Nicrotek  and  if  you  are  a fan  of  ambient  and  depressive  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  his  side  of  the  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Hanging  In  The  Sky"  and  "Nackskott".

  Next  up  is  Hellvete  a  duo  that  plays  a  depressive  form  of  black  metal.

  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  wind  sounds  along  with  some  clean  plying  a  few  seconds  later  that  leads  up  to  a  heavier  sound  along  with  a  great  amount  of  high  pitched  depressive  black  metal  screams  and  you  can  also  hear  some  melodic  guitar  leads  being  utilized  at  times  and  you  can  also  hear  a  touch  of  doom  metal  at  times.

  After  awhile  elements  of  ambient  can  be  heard  along  with  a  small  amount  of  acoustic  guitars and  all  4  of  the  tracks  stick  mostly  to  a  very  slow  musical  direction  while  the  music  does  speed  up  a  bit  on  the  last  track  and  also  brings  in  more  of a  raw  feeling,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the lyrics  cover  depression  and  death  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Hellvete  are  a  very  great  sounding depressive  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of  the  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Under  Despair  Moon"  and  "Moksa".

  In  conclusion  I  feel  this  is  a  very  great  sounding  split  and  I  would  recommend  it  to  all  fans  of  ambient  and  depressive  black  metal.  8  out  of  10.
