ADZALAAN – INTO VERMILION MIRRORS LP (Vrasubatlat)

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

Adzalaan - Into Vermilion MirrorsReleases from the Vrasubatlat stable are invariably excellent and Adzalaan’s debut full-length, ‘Into Vermilion Mirrors’, is yet another worthy addition to this fresh, unique and extremely impressive canon.

The record reminds me a lot of the outstanding ‘Rotten Limbs In Dreams Of Blood’ and that’s hardly a surprise considering that Ash Borer member Rory Flay is essentially the mastermind behind both acts (as well as many others).

Serpentine, buzzing, swirling, enchanting Black Metal with some Death Metal brawn is the order of the day, with enraged vocals and majestic interludes. Ferocious, fantastic and mightily accomplished. Shame there’s no lyrics included but I always seem to find at least one thing to moan about, even where perfection beckons.

Evilometer: 666/666

UŠKUMGALLU – ROTTEN LIMBS IN DREAMS OF BLOOD LP (Vrasubatlat)

Friday, March 24th, 2017

Uškumgallu - Rotten Limbs In Dreams Of BloodUškumgallu’s debut full-length, ‘Rotten Limbs In Dreams Of Blood’, is a twisted, depraved slab of sinister, primitive Black / Death Metal for which all the usual negative-positive superlatives apply. From start to finish, it’s an unsettling, unnerving experience but one you will want to live through over and over again. Shedding your skin.

Nightmarish, psychotic and claustrophobic but with just enough subtle nuances, interludes and noise to keep things bearable, this album is a real breath of fresh air and a true lesson to others in how to deliver music that’s genuinely obscure and crushing yet nourishing. It will shatter your soul and replenish your spirit.

Just awesome. In fact, this is probably one of the best records in my collection.
