Emerging from the bitter darkness of the abyss, Délétère ushers forth their new title Theovorator: Babelis Testamentum; a three track blackened opus that is as raw, blasphemous and potent as you would expect. Swinging back in to full force after their 2018 offering De Horae Leprae, Délétère provide you with three great tracks of blasphemous black metal here once again. Raw, bitter, blasphemous, atmospheric and more, Theovorator: Babelis Testamentum has it all and then some as it offers up three slithering hymns of blackened metal.
Délétère is unapologetic and unwavering in their sonic assault as they usher forth a blistering and soul crushing sound that sinks its hooks deep in to you from the very beginning. Rampaging forth with riffs soaked in hell fire, drum work that leaves you chest cracked and vocals that shriek up from the bowels of hell, Délétère provide you with a well rounded and clinical blackened maelstrom. From beginning to end, Délétère provides you with a true and relentless blackened sound that ultimately drags you down to the depths of the abyss.
As blistering and accosting as each offering is, they are still melodious all the same. Blistering fury never gives way to more melodious moments and the inverse is true as well as Délétère strikes a great balance between the two. Each track is a palatable and memorable blackened storm that sinks its fangs in to you never to release until Theovorator: Babelis Testamentum has concluded. With biting savagery combined with memorable melody, Délétère offers up a sound that is unforgettable and undeniable.
Floating among the sonic torment is a great amount of atmosphere as well. Throughout this release, haunting atmospheres and soundscapes are ever present. As you succumb to the blasphemous blistering storm, the atmosphere is never far away only to loom over you like a poisonous cloud. The atmospheric tendencies all throughout this release add yet another wrinkle and fold in to the already varied and diverse sound that Délétère provides you. With everything combined you are treated to a truly cohesive and mesmerizing listen that you will not soon leave.
Through and through, Theovorator: Babelis Testamentum is a great release as Délétère out does themselves yet again. As short as this offering is in terms of track count, it more than makes up for in the quality. What you have here is three excellent tracks of blackened sorcery that is memorable as each track embeds themselves in your mind like a parasite never to leave. Délétère continues their reign of blasphemy with this release and nothing more can be said other than Theovorator: Babelis Testamentum is an excellent release.
