NOCTURNE

Band:BLOSSE
Album:NOCTURNE
Label:DE TENEBRARUM RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:ATMOSPHERIC BLACK METAL

Blosse, hailing from Quebec, began in early 2018 with the release of “Le Dernier Crépuscule”, moving from a primitive form of Lo-Fi Black Metal & involving some Dark Ambient elements too. As times passed by the hypnotic, visionary and transcendental substance grown as a key part in the band creative process. Time is suddenly distorted and your body feels heavy. References may be found on projects like Lunar Aurora, Paysage d’Hiver, Trist and The Ruins of Beverast. As the artist mentions : "The term “Lovecraftian” being used to describe any kind of metal that’s a little bit cosmic sounding and weird is insanely overused, and often I don’t think it’s accurate. Not all cosmic horror has to come from something 7000 feet tall and so great we cannot comprehend it. In this sense, this is why Blosse’s music sounds more earthly. I didn't want to fall into the stereotypes." The cd edition of "Nocturne" includes "Era Noire" EP as bonus. The EP shows the more meditative and synth inspired side of Blosse, While into "Nocturne" the space synths/choirs are still there, the abrasive guitars are way more center stage contributing to the Blosse's comprehensive manifestation. "Era Noire" is definitely to be considered a more experimental side of the project: a guitar wall of sound and loop, then adding the synths and merge them with distortion to create a deranged sound.

 

 

O SANGUE DA NOITE (LIMITED)

Band:SARTEGOS
Album:O SANGUE DA NOITE (LIMITED)
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:BLACK METAL/BLACK DEATH

Lead by Rou Morgade (guitar, bass, keyboards, vocals), SARTEGOS may have been a silent presence in today's underground metal, but their shadow inexorably lengthened on the scene throughout the decade. After a couple of demos released in 2010 and 2011, the Galician band proved its worth thanks to two important recordings: the revelatory “As Fontes Do Negrume” EP (2013), and the formidable “Resvrrezionespiritval” split with YSENGRIN (2016), both released on vinyl format through I, Voidhanger Records. Filed a with fellow, for SARTEGOS it's now time to conquer the world with their debut full-length album, “O Sangue da Noite” (The Blood of the Night), which combines the primitive and abrasive sounds of 90s metal with a tense and sharp songwriting devoted to obscure and morbid atmospheres.

 

 

TELLURIAN INSURGENCY (LIMITED)

Band:PLOUGHSHARE
Album:TELLURIAN INSURGENCY (LIMITED)
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:BLACK DEATH DOOM

With their 2018 debut full-length “In Offal, Salvation”, PLOUGHSHARE shaked the extreme metal underground very violently, making many year end's best-albums lists. Their new EP, “Tellurian Insurgency” follows in the steps of its predecessor boldly underlining an incontrovertible truth: the Australian band doesn't strictly adhere to a metal sub-genre in particular, but opens its arms to a multitude of influences and sounds in order to serve a greater purpose. Black metal, death metal, doom metal, noise rock, post-punk and even the darkest offshoots of electronic ambient: all are bent to PLOUGHSHARE's scorching metal vision, all of them converge in the same cauldron and liquify into an incandescent metal magma to gobble down in one deadly sip. “PLOUGHSHARE is what occurs when we come together as a band,” they explain. “We all bring material, but this will always undergo transformation once we’re together. The music emerges contingently, and in a manner that makes it impossible to inscribe our wills into it. We might all contribute, but we are equally all caught up in it.” “Tellurian Insurgency” feeds on sickness, unbearable oppression and blind violence. There are no apparent constraints, as the music flows impetuous and intense; the only rules are those dictated by the band's expressive urgency, though always disciplined and absolutely focused on the final result. The EP opening tracks, “Abreactive Trance” and “Indistinguishable Beast of Flight”, underline PLOUGHSHARE's preference for visceral and exquisitely twisted sonic trajectories; the remix of“ In Offal, Salvation” (the full-length debut's title-track) adds even more depth to an already amazing song, while “Xeno-Chemical Insider” is an enigmatic and experimental closing number that leaves us excited thinking about the Australians' next musical step.

 

 

CARRIER OF POISON APPLES (LIMITED)

Band:BENIGHTED IN SODOM
Album:CARRIER OF POISON APPLES (LIMITED)
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:DEPRESSIVE BLACK/DARK

BENIGHTED IN SODOM is the most long-lived project of Reuben Christopher Jordan, aka Matron Thorn, founder of ÆVANGELIST, OBSCURING VEIL, DEVIL WORSHIPPER, PRÆTERNATURA, DEATH FETISHIST and OBLIVION GATE, as well as an ex-member of LEVIATHAN, CHAOS MOON and BETHLEHEM. Existing since 2006 -and since then filtering black metal through the lens of shoegaze rock and darkwave- BENIGHTED IN SODOM have always been Jordan's most personal project, a mirror of his existential malaise, and a tool of necessary catharsis. With this in mind, “Carrier of Poison Apples” could be the band's magnum opus, a ride into the darkest hour of the night exploring Jordan's lonely corner of the earth, where no dream is forsaken and love is as tenebrous as darkness. “The album is nothing but the story of myself as a person, though it's relatable for anyone,” he explains. “We all live in an age where everyone is trying to out-occult each other with elaborate artworks made to look like their little heavy metal album was created in some old century and filled with esoteric knowledge. Its escapism like anything else, but the esoteric knowledge in 'Carrier Of Poison Apples' doesn't come from a manuscript or grimoire, it's from a lifetime of terrible events, living among strangers, criminality, transcendent depths of obsession, substance abuse, lust, violence, and other everyday parts of my life.”

 

 

III

Band:IN HUMAN FORM
Album:III
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:PROGRESSIVE BLACK METAL

“III” is arguably the third full-length album of Massachussets' IN HUMAN FORM, a formidable quintet of highly talented musicians devoted to an avant-garde kind of metal with strong esoteric and philosophical tints. Their 2017 sophomore release, the amazing “Opening of the Eye by the Death of the I” was a remarkable blend of aggressive black metal and progressive music, but in “III” the band's style matures and evolves even further, birthing an audacious and breathtaking musical hybrid by perfectly amalgamating the musicians' extreme metal background with their love for 70's prog and jazzfusion. “There were many new avenues that we experimented with, especially guitar solos”, explains guitarist Nicholas Clark; “that really tested out limits and dug up some interesting influences. A track like 'Weeping Stones' was actually recorded live with a few overdubs, to give it much more emotion and tightness; and I ended up using the Mellotron quite extensively as well, as a nod to our 70's prog influences.”
