Bekmork: Incantations of the Frigid North

April 23, 2019

Bekmork: Incantations of the Frigid North

Hailing from the frozen north and emerging from the permafrost is black metal outfit Bekmork. Emerging from the frozen tomb with them is their debut record titled Incantations of the Frigid North. There are five tracks total that are harbored within the title of this release that are as raw and dissonant as you would imagine. Each track is a gnarled piece of blackened metal that doesn’t wait around too long before getting you completely acquainted with their venomous and frigid approach.

Incantations of the Frigid North is a pretty straight forward black metal record. Through this release, Bekmork plays a stripped down, bare bones style of black metal that utilizes dissonant fuzzed out riffs, hellish howls and tumultuous drumming to provide you with a straight forward shadow dwelling sound. There are no gimmicks here and certainly no fluff as Bekmork offers up pure unfiltered black metal for your blistered soul.

Coupled with bits of frozen ambiance here and there, Incantations of the Frigid North offers up track after track of bleeding raw sonic darkness. Bekmork seems to have stirred their cauldron just right to provide you with this blistering piece of blasphemy. These six tracks here when needed are blistering straight forward blasphemous odes to darkness, and when needed they slow to a mid tempo romp through the frost to deliver and drive home an impactful buzzing sound.

With everything being said, and while each track is put together well, it is the execution that needs a little work. When Bekmork speeds things up and provides you with a no holds barred, soul stripping blackened offering, that is when things sound great and complete. At other times the sound seems a little discombobulated and incomplete. If overall execution is tightened up a little more, Bekmork would have a cohesive, unholy and wicked pure black metal sound that will be hard to ignore.

Incantations of the Frigid North will be released April 26.

Widower: Cataclysmic Sorcery

With great sadistic intent, blackened scourge Widower blurs the lines between black metal and thrash to provide you with one truly wicked album that goes by the title of Cataclysmic Sorcery. This nine track scorcher is just that. It is a relentless, blood shedding offering of pure malevolence and malignancy that pries your soul from your lifeless body. With the two chaotic heads of thrash and black metal sewn together, what Widower has created is something unholy, blasphemous and down right vein draining.

Widower wastes no time getting you to be familiar with their overall blood thirsty sound as you are immediately placed within the belly of the beast. With no time to prepare for what you are about to witness, you become under siege by flesh ripping riffs that are only to be backed by machine gun drums and hellish tortured vocals that ring out from the depths of hell. Widower provides you no reprieve throughout Cataclysmic Sorcery as they provide you with one wicked track right after another suffocating you under droves of deadly, demonic blackened metal.

Cataclysmic Sorcery is an all together venomous and deadly album as it offers up nine sinister and down right nasty tracks that rip away at your soul. With great technicality and musicianship, Widower offers up nine very solid and life threatening cuts one right after the next. Each track is a ceaseless juggernaut of malice and malevolence aimed straight at your throat. Without reprieve you become battered and broken well before the final note has rang through the halls of the dead.

With everything stated above, Cataclysmic Sorcery is a very good record, one that provides you with ceaseless onslaughts of pure hellfire and brimstone. Not on a single track does Widower take a minute or second off as each one is just as furious and blood thirsty as the last. This release has everything you would hope it would have coming from a blackened thrash release and then some, making it to be a well rounded and cohesive offering that you should keep your eyes peeled for.

Cataclysmic Sorcery will be released May 24 through Black Market Metal.

Plague Weaver: S/T EP

April 14, 2019

Plague Weaver: S/T

Hailing from Mississauga, Ontario is aptly named Plague Weaver with their brand new two track self titled EP. As short as this offering is, it does provide you with raw, dissonant, foreboding black metal that keeps you coming back for more shadowy malevolence. Within only two tracks, this self titled EP grips you tightly, ever slowly dragging you where sunlight does not reach. This self titled release is a compelling and engaging offering, one that supplies you with two great blackened offerings one right after the next.

Plague Weaver begin their devilry with their opening track titled Condemned To Worship. This track begins with a foreboding intro that comes complete with an eerie piano entry that is backed by shadowy whispers of the damned. Once that intro subsides, Plague Weaver hits you with unsettling mid tempo riffs and palpable drumming that is only to be backed by ever wicked, venomous and dissonant vocals that ring through the halls of the damned. This is a very well executed track that will get stuck in your head for quite some time in part due to the ritualistic chanting vocal delivery of the chorus. This track grips you right off the bat with the cold dead hand of the reaper, keeping you engaged and enchanted by the blackened malevolence that Plague Weaver exudes. Condemned To Worship is a solid track opening track that sets you up for the rest of the malevolence that is about to be ushered forth.

Once the mid tempo ritualism of Condemned To Worship subsides, the second and final track YHWH appears from the darkened abyss. YHWH is a more up tempo blackened assault than that of Condemned To Worship. This track is a short yet grave desecrating cut complete with scythe like riffs, raspy hellish vocals and tumultuous drumming. Even though this offering is more up tempo than that of its predecessor, it still very much so is melodic and engaging all the same. YHWH keeps you on the edge of your proverbial seat as it shifts tempos quite often from up tempo to mid tempo all the way back to its shrine desecrating up tempo pace. This track is and feels more gnarled and punishing than the opening track is it rips forth out of the gates never to look back with soul cleaving riffs and ever jarring drumming. This track is a great compliment to the opener as it offers up some of the same characteristics as the first track, yet veers off a path all its own to provide you with variety and an overall well rounded blackened sound that is hard to forget.

This is a very solid EP from Plague Weaver as they gift you with two exceptional black metal tracks that each have something different and unique to offer. With more melody than that of purely traditional black metal, each of the two tracks here are highly memorable and infectious as you will have a hard time getting them dislodged from your memory. With great song writing and great musicianship, Plague Weaver offers up two great tracks that keep you coming back and wanting more.
