Urarv: Argentum

May 17, 2018


With black metal like riffs, howled vocals, an unmatched intensity and an overall sinister atmosphere, Urarv seem just like any other black metal band on the surface. However, that certainly is not the case as there is something that is different, unique and all around unsettling about them. Urarv are not black metal nor do they belong in any other sub genre of metal as they create a wicked, intense and grim sound all their own. They are harsh, punishing, atmospheric, schizophrenic in style as they never present you with the same sound twice even within one song. Urarv’s sound is eclectic, intriguing and ever twisting to present you with a sound that is all together odd yet gripping.

Argentum begins with the opener Ahaman Inikak Mo, a track that is filled with didgeridoos and unsettling chanting arising from the ever blackening abyss. From there, Urarv roll onward in to their next track Krakekjott which stampedes out of hell right from the get go blasting you with that familiar cold black metal intensity. Kraketjott is probably the one track on this release that resembles what black metal traditionally is. Beyond this point, Urarv delve deeper in to their more experimental and mind bending side, taking you on an odd sonic journey through the wonderfully weird and unique soundscapes that they create.

You can certainly expect the unexpected from Urarv as they never stick to one sound as they bounce around endlessly and tirelessly providing you with a sound that is hard to pin point. Each track is incredibly different from each other giving you an eternity of variety to listen to and listen for. Each listen will flesh out something new that you may not have heard before, and with each listen you will just want to continue listening. Through six tracks, Urarv snake and wind their way through excellently crafted tracks to gift you with an equally excellent and unique listen.

Argentum constantly twists in directions that you may not have thought off throwing you for loop after loop. Once you feel as though you have it figured out, Urarv send you spiraling again keeping you guessing as to what you are about to be subject to. Argentum isn’t a normal record by any standards and that is exactly what makes it stand out. Argentum makes you feel unsettled as it lurches forth, twisting and writhing between its many sounds offering you something odd and intriguing to remember and revel in. Overall, Argentum is a great record as each track is wonderfully crafted and executed with solid musicianship, manic vocals and a raw production that brings everything together nicely.

Argentum will be released through Svart Records June 1, 2018.

Grave Spirit: The Beast Unburdened By Flesh

January 24, 2018

cover haulix.jpg

Howling through the void only to reach in to your soul and bring you despair and chaotic darkness is Grave Spirit. Grave Spirit was formed in molten darkness and sickening malevolence in early 2017, and late that same year these shadow dwellers unleashed their debut EP The Beast Unburdened By Flesh. This EP consists of only two tracks that sew together black metal and elements of death metal to create horrifying corpse raising metal for your sick twisted mind. Upon pressing play, Grave Spirit doesn’t waste a minute to shroud you in their hell fire baptized soul shredding tunes. From the first note on, Grave Spirit does a great job of gnashing at your flesh, never relenting until the final note has rang through and rattled through your skull.

Each of the two tracks on this release are terrorizing and pure blackened chaos. Though there are only two tracks within this title, you are sure to leave the listen with your head spinning dangling from a thread. The Beast Unburdened By Flesh is an unrelenting beast to be reckoned with. With just two tracks to its name it packs more than a hellish punch with each of the two tracks invoking the wrath of the wicked and damned. The Beast Unburdened By Flesh rips, roars and tears straight through whatever amount of humanity that you had left, instilling only darkness and dread in your mind.

This EP is a great foreshadowing of what is hopefully to come from these blasting heathens. This is a solid effort through and through from the musicianship to the production. It will be great to see where Grave Spirit takes things from here, but if this EP is any indication of what is to come, I’m sure we can expect more great blackened metal.

Zeolite: Sermones Mortis

January 22, 2018


There must be something in the mid strength beer in Australia as it has become a breeding ground for heavy metal acts over the last however many years. That being said, Zeolite is a deathcore/technical death metal crossover band that hails from Melbourne, Australia. Sermones Mortis is their sophomore EP which contains five brand new tracks of incredibly punishing, brain rattling and bone shattering death metal. Zeolite kicks their explosive EP off with Malignant, which leads you in with a bit of an ominous intro  before kicking your teeth straight down your throat. Once the intro has concluded, Zeolite bring the blood spurting pain with blasting drumming, and disgustingly jarring riffs.

From Malignant on, you are treated to four more tracks of nothing but neck breaking brutality. There are no punches pulled within this offering and there certainly isn’t any fluff to be found as Zeolite rolls out track after track of deadly skull shattering death metal. Even when the third track Reticent appears-which is a straight forward instrumental-you aren’t given a breather what so ever. Each track on this release does its best job to make you feel as though your life is ending and at the end of the listen Sermones Mortis makes you feel as though you have taken a baseball bat to the face repeatedly.

Sermones Mortis is a punishing onslaught of nothing but metallic pain and fury. This five track offering is unrelenting and unforgiving as it provides you with nothing but violent and cutting tracks for you to turn your brain in to mush to. This EP is a bulldozer of death as it culls the weak and tramples the deceased. From beginning to end you are under siege by this sonic death machine. You are granted zero breaks or reprieve from the utter onslaught, and in only five tracks Zeolite puts you through the wringer only to throw you out like a useless corpse at the end of it all.

Once you press play, there is nothing that you can do other than sit back and let Zeolite smash your face to pieces. This is a harsh, jagged, technical and down right heavy piece of work and an overall great sophomore effort from these Aussies.


Veiled: Black Celestial Orbs

January 20, 2018

Veiled album cover.jpg

Upon listening to the very first few minutes of Veiled’s new offering Black Celestial Orbs, you can tell that you are in for an enchanting and mystifying treat. Through and through, Black Celestial Orbs is a devilish and captivating record that is hard to deny and hard to pull away from. With only six tracks, Veiled creates something that is all together bleak, spell binding and haunting among many other things. From the drop of the first note you become encased in a thick never ending blanket of fog that invites you in to experience the mystifying and swirling darkness that Veiled has so greatly crafted.

Each track on this record pulses with an undulating and unrelenting darkness that ultimately pulls you in capturing your attention and your mind. With the right amount of bleak, melancholic and sinister atmosphere that is sewn in to each track, Veiled fills your mind with creeping shadows and unforgettable soundscapes. Each of the six tracks on this release are just as good as the others, and each track is filled with plenty of swirling, ever enveloping atmosphere. Black Celestial Orbs as a whole feels weighty when listening and a large part of that is the product of such dense and purposeful atmosphere and ambiance.

Through and through, Black Celestial Orbs is a mystifying and immersive record. The lengthier run times of each of the six tracks really makes you sink in to this release and really become shrouded in all of the sonic blasphemy that Veiled has to offer. Since each track is on the longer side, it allows Veiled to take your mind on an ever darkening wander through their blackened fog filled mires. Not only that, but the length of each track allows them to breathe and allows Veiled to create vast spectral soundscapes.

Sewn together through each track are howling screams, never ending pulsating drums, slithering riffs and copious amounts of atmosphere that draw you ever closer to the pits of the abyss. All of that and more is sewn together to create an all around great record; one that you can listen to over and over again and become mystified and captivated over and over again. This offering is cohesive, well put together and very well performed making it to be an enjoyable, dark, heavy and well rounded record. It is not a mystery as to why and how Veiled has began making a name for themselves, and through this record they certainly show why they have began to make a name for themselves. This is an exceptional offering.

Black Celestial Orbs will be released March 16, 2018 through Iron Bonehead

Fister/CHRCH: Split

November 8, 2017



To kick this split off between CHRCH and Fister is the brand new track from CHRCH titled Temples. This seventeen minute opening track begins with a melancholic intro that not only is melancholic but serene in a way, until you hit near the four minute mark. Around this four minute mark you become swallowed up in a wall of monstrous reverberating riffs, pounding drums and devilish shrieking vocals. From here on in you are provided with nothing but captivating, dark, twisted and ultimately bone splintering doom. Temples trudges along with the intent of dragging you along with it down a dark and twisting corridor to your ultimate demise. CHRCH create an ever looming and dark atmosphere within these seventeen minutes; one that follows you the entire length of the track. Temples is a wonderfully malevolent piece that does a great job of captivating and mesmerizing you from the drop of the first note. With longer tracks you tend to wonder if the listen will be a burden or longer than it should be, but that certainly is not the case with Temples. Even at seventeen minutes this track flies by because you become so wrapped up and involved with the track. This is a wonderfully crafted piece by CHRCH, one that you will have a hard time forgetting.

Immediately following Temples is Fister’s The Ditch. The Ditch is a great follow up to Temples as it is just as grueling and twisted. From the get go, Fister greets you with throat shredding screeches, low, slow and murky riffs that are accompanied by the ever present pounding of drums. The Ditch is a dissonant and monolithic assault on the listeners ears as you are provided with nothing but harsh doom for twenty plus minutes. Around the eight minute mark is when you can breath again as Fister presents you with a calm, nearly serene break in the action until the track builds back up and finally pushes you back down in to the dark depths of despair with more trudging and life ending doom. Even as oppressive as this track is and even with its lengthy run time, you still sit and listen all the way through marching in syncopation with the drum beats to your doom. Much like Temples from CHRCH, The Ditch is just as an enthralling listen as much as it is a damning one. With dissonant soul shredding riffs paired with hammering drums and vocals that range the spectrum from high pitched shrieks to rabid larynx shredding lows, you are gifted with a harrowing, punishing and ultimately entertaining and heavy listen. The Ditch is a cohesive and well constructed track that slowly drives you to madness, but even so you will find yourself playing this track over and over.

The pairing of CHRCH and Fister on this split is great and utter madness. Each band compliments the other very well providing you with an all around great listen. Each track has a ton to offer, and while this split may seem daunting, it is definitely worth listening to all the way through. This is a great release to say the least, and you certainly cannot go wrong here.

This split will be released November 17, 2017.
