A word on Veritas Diaboli Manet in Aeternum

In perhaps one of the most musically accomplished black metal recordings of all time, S.V.E.S.T. puts forth a two-step thesis that gracefully springs across the stepping stones of theological speculation, culminating in bouts of mystical visions and philosophical open ended questions. The resulting amalgam dances seamlessly over these, while it remains clear that at the

Ubils: C.R.U.E.L. En Concierto Antifest VII

The music of C.R.U.E.L. started out not as an extension nor a ramification of Abyssum, but as a different avenue of thought connected to a different source of inspiration. C.R.U.E.L. is the word of an infernal prophet, and this is reflected both in the hammer-like idiosyncrasies of the music and the lyrical titles which serve

Al hacerlo de esta manera hay un distanciamiento y a la vez un entendimiento

Ioannis Kleftogiannis Consummatum Est

A pensive work of death and oblivion, Consummatum Est seems engendered by an obsession with the void, exuding the aura of a crazed contemplator, a witness torn between his own mortality and the infinity of the universe as ungraspable concept. Terror and hypnotic ruminations are here forever fused to lead the listener through an overgrown and

Music Thrives as a Reflection of our Becoming

When we consider humans as a collection of factors brought together into certain condition, the passage of time makes us also realize that we go through different states, and that there is never a return to an identical state in the past. We are also a continuous, rather than a discrete, set of states. The

Richard Moult Ethe

Ethe is made up of mostly piano and piano-based compositions of a minimalist kind, which should not be misinterpreted as meaning reductionist in the Philip Glass style, and more of a modernist return to essence. Rather than those jingles expanded cheaply by the use of arpeggios for which Glass is mainly known, Moult approaches a
