Greve: Nidingsdåd utav det Uråldriga 

Summoning the sound of the ancients, Greve comes storming out of the bitter abyss with their upcoming offering Nidingsdåd utav det Uråldriga. This release features two tracks that top just over seven minutes in length, which ultimately provides you with fourteen plus minutes of nothing but stellar black metal. Aggressive, yet serene, captivating, atmospheric, darkened yet majestic, Greve supplies you with all of those descriptors and even more all within two very good tracks. Within two tracks, Greve gives off an authentic ancient sound that is raw and inviting. Greve captivates from the very beginning, never having you leave their mystical and hypnotic record as they grab you from the drop of the first note never to relinquish you.

As mentioned above, Greve strikes a great balance between providing you with an aggressive black metal assault with more serene and atmospheric moments. Within the two tracks that are present here you are provided with a great deal of variety and diversity. You are never to hear the same things twice even with as lengthy as each track is. Tempos are consistently shifted as are tones, forever keeping you on your toes and trapped within the labyrinth of sounds that Greve unfolds before you. Each track is an intricate and well written piece of black metal that ultimately grasps your mind only to weave it down harsh blackened corridors at times and at others corridors of floating atmosphere.

Between sharply wielded riffs, tumultuous drumming, vocals that range between piercing yet gravel filled shrieks to unearthly bellows and an atmosphere that is all encompassing and devouring, Greve hooks you right in immediately. Both tracks are expertly crafted and performed providing you with one hell of a listen that gets better and better each time you set foot in to the unfolding soundscapes that Greve offers. Neither track takes any time off as each one presses forth offering up seven minutes of blistering yet mystifying black metal. Forever enchanting, blistering and mystifying, Greve envelopes you in all of it before you are prepared, never letting you escape from their maze of ancient sound.

Nidingsdåd utav det Uråldriga is a very good release. It offers up two lengthy, well put together offerings that you will put on repeat for some time to come. This is an excellent display of black metal through and through as well as a release in general that should not be looked over if you are a fan of the genre.

LSCOD: Cherophobia

Emerging from the abyssal depths of despair comes one man depressive black metal act LSCOD. Cherophobia is the title of their debut EP, in which it features five total offerings of pure depressive blackened metal. Each track is a dissonant work of art that provides you with a light stealing abyssal atmosphere that hangs over you like a cloud. Once you press play you have no choice but to succumb to the bitter and cold darkness that LSCOD unfolds before you. You are given no reprieve from this melancholic offering as each track suffocates you under its oppressive and damning atmosphere.

LSCOD starts Cherophobia off with an intro appropriately titled Intro (Torture). This near two minute intro provides you a peek in to what you are about to hear. Intro (Torture) offers up a melancholic piano tone that is coupled with horrifying spectral whispers, until it fades in to a dark realm only for the first full track to appear. The track that immediately follows is titled ROOM. This offering starts slowly and hauntingly providing you with the aforementioned chilling and cold atmosphere until it picks the pace up to greet you with rapid fire drumming and scythe like riffs. Along with the dissonant guitar work and ever pounding drumming are pained cries that cut through the sonic blasphemy to provide you with an overall unsettling sound. Throughout this track, LSCOD does a great job of mixing tempos to offer up a varied and diverse track that switches between a glacial slow melancholic sound and a skin blistering tempo. As this seven and half minute track unfolds, you get dragged further and further in to the bleak and ever forlorn soundscapes that materialize before you.

The third full original track titled Sink In Dementia is a much slower track that provides you with a truly chilling atmosphere all throughout. The tempo shift from ROOM isn’t all so drastic, but it is palpable as you feel as though your soul is being dragged in to a never ending darkness once Sink In Dementia begins. This track is incredibly steeped in painful tones and darkness as pained cries can be heard cutting through the slow dirge of depression and anguish. The fifth, final and title track is an even more drastic tempo and tone shift as it is a tried and true blackened assault once it appears. The title offering treats you to a blitzkrieg of rapid fire drumming, slicing riffs and gritty howled vocals over the sonic wall of blackened noise. Cherophobia is a great track to close the release out with as it offers up near five minutes of a true blackened assault that carries depressive and melancholic tones of its own.

Cherophobia is a greatly varied offering as it provides you with plenty of tempo shifts from track to track, keeping you on your toes for the entirety of its run time. Through and through this is a solid release, one that is dark, haunting, depressive, melancholic and even at times completely ripping. This is a release that will offer fans of depressive black metal plenty of diversity and variety, one that will please their gnarled ear drums.
