Vimur is undoubtedly amongst the Atlanta Elite, and I am damn proud to review their latest release, Transcendental Violence.
This is Midnight at its prime. It has enough of the blackened punk/speed junkie mix with a dose more of musicianship, and blackened undertones.
As black metal and death metal, generally speaking, rise in popularity, and show no signs of slowing down any time soon, we can still find black/death metal hidden away underneath all the grime of the underground.
With Vorga’s Striving Toward Oblivion, we will see this branch off of the black metal tree sprout into something epic and special.
The love I have for Yellow Eyes is sprinkled well within the tunes without it being Yellow Eyes 2.0.
Det Eviga Leedent brings us their sophomore album, ‘Reverence’ with Jacob Buczarski (Mare Cognitum and Acathexis) on vocals, and man! Did they deliver on this one!
The feral riffs, abrasive rhythms, and punishing vocals will rend a hole in your personal atmosphere.
Come join the ritual. Offer your hand to the feral, sentient darkness. Let the ritual weave you a new skeletal structure. Join the Chaos (Perversion).
Lyrically, Anti Ritual speak to the rising wave of fascism (in opposition, of course), the environmental catastrophe we have collectively caused, the oppression of capitalism, and more. In other words, they have every right to be incredibly pissed off. We all do.
“Over Opiated in a Forest of Whispering Speakers,” their third full length album, will be the band’s first with support from Willowtip Records. It comes out the first Friday of the new year, and I highly suggest you purchase a copy.
