The momentum is put on hold for some slower atmospheric sections, breaking up the song to allow the energies to regrow. Thus, it seems nearly impossible to find an individual which combines both the skill and the mandatory views of the occult. The line up back then was: Onielar - Vox, Git Velnias - Git Ariovist - Drums Grigorr - Session Bass This album being dedicated to pure underground deeds combined the true spirit, which is grim, dark and evil as well as a quality production. I think this set the dark and ugly mood for a Black Metal release filled with atmosphere and foreboding perfectly. The screeches over sombre guitars sound so depressive while the aggression of the piece is equally unrelenting.
This is hideously dark, penetratingly evil Black Metal that ferociously grinds out morbid soundscapes with utterly brilliant execution. An excellent interval that does not detract from the monstrously crushing album, rather complementing it by adding to the atmosphere for a full package experience. An absolutely excellent start to the album. The screeches of the Onielar sound truly like a banshee over the monstrous instrumental sections. Spectral voices further the creepy soundscape. The doomy rhythms of the track are catchy while also being incredibly bleak. The thunderous bass attack leads the track into battle with full force.
The macabre grooves and sombre structures take you on a dark journey into the bands fantastic abilities with a track that truly soars. The catchiness of the song is really enjoyable but remains to be as dark and unrelenting as ever. Since 1997, the German-based horde led by the formidable and long-standing duo of Onielar and Velnias have stuck to the traditional core values of black metal and as such, have forged a career of blasphemy and razor-sharp musical ferocity. The decision to build anticipation works a treat as suspense is maintained over the course of the track before the band explode into life with Mardom — Echo Zmory. A Sweven Most Devout falls into place with more furiously fast riffing that has a gorgeous thrashing pace to it, accentuated further when coupled with the maniacal drumming. Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult Tales of a Darkened Past - - - - - 1997-1999 The 1st Chapter - The Pest Called Humanity Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult was called into its existence during the cold wintery months of 1997.
Here, a striking precedent is made as a barrage of blast beats from Horrn roar the album into life before subsiding into blistering dual guitar riffing from Velnias and Onielar, the former delivering bout after bout of twisted vocal shrieks. This track was absolutely wonderful and the most intense, piercing and gruesome one so far! E fires out more melodic riffing, cavernous blasts and howled vocals that has a really tight old school vibe to things. Thus during the second half of the year 1999 the first official release The Pest Called Humanity was recorded. Grisly churning instrumentals and gut-wrenching screams are the name of the game in this piece with no holding back, just unforgiving frenzied attacks from the whole band. Exaudi Domine features another masterclass of black metal riffing and Onielar impresses once again with expertly dispatched vocal howls and shrieks whilst the ambient-driven interlude Widma works a treat to introduce the mid-tempo monster that is Imperishable Soulless Gown. Imperishable Soulless Gown drives us right back in with fully restored aggression.
Atmospherically the song is just as unrelenting with cascades of bleak and raw noise coating in distortion and crashing drums hitting us in monolithic waves. Exaudi Domine blasts out more ferocious drumming and thrashing riffs that are decimating with intensity. Something totally evil is coming for sure… 2. This last track keeps up the monolithic pace of the album while also giving us a large addition of much more heart-wrenching soundscapes, a truly brilliant spectacle to end this album. I think the use of a bass solo was a unique one that really paid off adding some groovy flare to the piece.
This is some dissonant and absolutely fantastic material with so much impact. Inception of Atemporal Transition sets in with creepy soundscapes of static and some strong percussion, a terrifying start to the release, though a totally awesome one. An avid lover of music from Metal to Hip Hop to Indie to Folk, he creates music in various projects Sykelig Englen, Åpenbaring, Arboretum, Graven Crypt Tower, Cold Void and Chernobyl Mutation Experiment. In the following months the darkened trinity put much effort, sweat and blood into their very first hymns. The depressive and aggressive soundscapes are interwoven so precisely with excellent songwriting and intricately skilful musicianship to allow for a balanced, diverse listen throughout that slays from start to end. Mardom — Echo Zmory kicks us in with blisteringly chaotic riffing, intense blast beats and the truly harsh production that allows this Black Metal assault to kick in with total spite.
I really enjoyed the coupling of more doomy and depressive sections with the huge blistering parts. In 1997, a group of German and Polish black metal devotees gathered to keep the flame of true, raw and ferocious black metal alive: Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult. E features splashes of technical trickery in the guitar department as frost-bitten riffing bounce off the groove-focussed basslines from Adversarius, and the Scandinavian black metal-esque closure proves to be a stand-out moment on the record. The punishingly hypnotic grooves add so much punch to follow this up with the piercing vocals howls and their demonic sound. The songwriting is absolutely gorgeous and is also executed wonderfully. During this time many tried out for the open bass position, but all were slain, all fell down to be mere cannonfodder.
Cold and brimming with hate, Mardom is a fierce listen and makes for one hell of a ride. On the other hand, this has led them to become a respected voice of the underground with their vision and values fully intact. A Beseechment Twofold begins with some chilling ambience, adding to the ghostly soundscape of the album before grinding into slower tempo grooves. The track features so much variety but in a way that flows smoothly throughout. The catatonically heavy guitars cast out morbidity with the blast beats accentuating them even further before the whole track drops into depravity and solitude with bleak screeches and miserable sound guitar riffs that are haunting to behold. Also, the subtle atmospherics lying under the surface adds an extra level of spine-tingling chill to the experience. The Sphere is the finale for this album.
. Another glorious track filled with grooves and absolute debauchery while keeping the Black Metal atmosphere strong. After the glorious days of early old school black metal had been infested by Gothic influences, and the betrayal of the Scandinavian forefathers - who apperently changed their allegiance, it was the intention of the two founding members Onielar Vokills, Git. We are also given some incredibly groovy sections that just add so much bite to the music. The howled screams that quickly join the barrages of instrumentals add even more energy to the ferociously bombarding music.
