Dämmerfarben - Im Abendrot



When downloading this album I expected some black black metal but rather I found Im Abendrot to be about 30% black metal and 70% acoustic ambient stuff. This is not necessarily a bad thing. When the black metal is blasting forth from the depths of despair, such as for Tracks 2, 6, 7, 8, it sounds great. I am reminded of Windir, which is a good thing to be reminded of. Ambient acoustic stuff aint bad either. frick it, its good n stuff. There you got your god dammned review. GOOD, ITS GOOD HEAR MEEEEE AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHRRRRGGGGGHHHH


THUMB UP (Y)

Aguynguerran - Perverting The Nazarene Cult (2008)


Featuring the guitarist from fellow Belgian black metal band Enthroned, Aguynguerran plays like an early Swedish black metal band (i.e. early Marduk) with this album being their only full length release to date.

The production is clean and professional with the guitars being the main focus here.  The music is usually BRUTAL and FIERCE, although there are some more melodic moments, with a wide range of riffs and bass to give it an overall heavy feel. The band members obvious all have talent, as the drumming is solid throughout, the guitar solos mesh perfectly, the bass provides depth and the vocals are unquestionably tortured.

The downside is that there isn't really a standout track on this album, all of the songs are just pretty good (the first 20 seconds of Epitome Of Your God are fricking AWESOME but unfortunately this does not last through the whole song).  To be fair this is the band's first album so if there are any future releases, they will hopefully have some more standouts.  I would say that this band shows far more promise than Enthroned who really only has one good album compared to several mediocre ones.

The band has barely over 25,000 scrobbles and 1,000 listeners on last.fm so they are still certified KVLT

(out of 5)

BILSKIRNIR - ATAVISMUS DES GLAUBENS


Atavismus des Glaubens is an album produced by legendary one-man band Bilskirnir. Bilskirnir refers to Thor's hall, an allusion to Wodenism and Indo-European paganism.

The album starts off with a gnarly instrumental song titled Feur und Schwert which translates to "Fire and Sword" in English. The first song transitions well into the second  Atavismus des Glauben. This might possibly be the most hateful, misanthropic, and ethnocentric song I have ever heard. The title translates to "Belief in Atavism" in English. Atavism of course refers to animalistic traits apparent in human embryos, and early scientific racists used Atavism to support their views. The song itself is as hateful as the title, every time I listen to the song, I want to unleash my Aryan genius. The screams are brutal and angry. The third song By Fire, Midgard Shall Be Cleansed is an obvious allusion to Norse mythology. Again, Bilskirnir expresses pure hatred through music. The guitar in this song is downright brutal. The next song is Restitution which is a really generic black metal song with solid vocals, guitar, and drums. This is the weakest song in the album, but is still fairly brvtal. The song leaps into the next song The Cosmic Source this song is so raw and so wickedly outstanding. It has a melancholy melody with the brvtal screams of Bilskirnir, a very hateful experience indeed. The next song Einsamkeit which translates to "Loneliness" in English has the same brvtal screams and raw feel to it. The song is not as misanthropic and the melody even gives a hint of hope in this chaotic album. This of course shows the depth of Bilskirnir's emotional character. The last song Abschied is so melancholy and brvtal it's ridiculous. Such a fantastic way to end a fantastic album. I won't spoil the end but just know it is sick!!

I won't give this album a rating as that would contradict the ideology that Bilskirnir is trying to espouse. He is an out-and-out National Socialist and German Transcendentalist, and from this brilliant work you know that Bilskirnir rejects empiricism. His album is far to deep and misanthropic to be quantified.

Ativismus des Glaubens certainly doesnt mean belief in atavism.  the des glaubens, instead of der glaube is because its genative meaning that ativismus is possessed by the glauben. so Atavism of faith. or atavism of the faith.  i dont really know what atavism is so its hard to say if the is needed or not. but album sounds great ill have to download it.

Negrobutcher - Afrocalypse, die Endlösung (2000)


This little NS side project of Aryan Blood's Negrobutcher opens and ends with great samples from the fine film American History X, perfectly setting the mood for a grim and satisfying, albeit short listening experience (the demo consists of 5 tracks, one being the sample intro). What can be said about this album is that the song titles aren't nearly as original as those of its distant relative Slave Whipping Blasphemy (perhaps with the exception of 'Napalm in the Ghetto'), the riffs are not as catchy, and the songs are quite short (none lasting more than 3 minutes). At times during listening, there were points where I was expecting a BREAKDOWN, but only found that the song had ended. Overall, a pleasant listening experience, but I would certainly recommend SWB over this for the subject matter.

5/5

COUNTESS - HEILIG VUUR (2004)



HEILIG VUUR is Countess's 8th album.
The first Countess album I listened too was ON WINGS OF DEFIANCE, which is the newest one (2011).
I downloaded it because the album cover seemed like pretty direct bathory worship. I was never really sure if I liked it or not, but I wont go into that here.
SPOILER (hover here to read)

I had heard that Countess' earlier work was very good so I decided to check one of the 'classic' albums out.

Countess are dedicated to preserving a sort of orthodox black metal which they say means in the spirit of the original first wave of black metal (bathory, hellhammer, venom). The production is very lo-fi, orlok is quoted as calling it intentionally 'horrible'. horrible in a grim evil atmospheric way, that is. That is definitely present in Heilig Vuur (dutch for Holy Fire), the atmosphere and sound are very dark. The bass is mixed pretty loud, and takes up all of the low end, with the guitars all in the fuzzy mid/high range. Orlok is suitably angry sounding, his delivery much much better sounding than in On Wings of Defiance . What it all ends up producing as an end product is a sick-azz raw black metal achievement. The songs are mostly low/mid paced, but Countess really seems to shine in an atmosphere sense. I am reminded a lot of bilskirnir in terms of the production and stuff.

My favourite tracks from Heilig Vuur would be the title track and Schemering Der Goden which is similar to a filisofem style track in that it is long and droning. Good droning, I like that.
Ended up listening to the whole album on repeat for about 5 hours.

I suggest giving HEILIG VUUR a listen if you like raw/orthodox black metal.

TWO GRIM THUMBS UP.
