Dråp - Rotten Till Allt Ont

With its classical grindcore artwork “Rotten Till Allt Ont” tells just a part of its story. Surely it has its roots in grindcore. But there are many more influences for Dråp, making their second album outstanding! As said, on the one hand there are those furious bursts into fast blastbeats. But there is always this special dark and dystopic feeling. So those influences definitively remind me of Nasum. But there is Crust/D-Beat/Hardcore in the vein of Tragedy as well as there are slight ingredients from Swedisch Death Metal. Read More…

Myrkur - Mareridt

Although it is just her third output (ignoring those singles and the live album “Mausoleum”), Myrkur has come a long way. Starting with a tribute to the second wave of black metal with her self-titled debut ep, she got a lot of controversial attention. With first full-length “M” her style started to emancipate from many conventions. “Mareridt” is just another step in this development. But there is still some way to go for Myrkur. Read More…

Desecresy - The Mortal Horizon

Picasso had his “blue period”, creating melancholic figure paintings. After two albums with a different color-scheme Desecresy return to this analogy that came to my mind with their second record “The Doom Skeptron”. Again, there is this omnipresent bale. Both within the music and on the cover artwork. Again there is this image of a skull, reminding the beholder of ever lurking death. And again Desecresy present themself as an independent doom-death metal band with their very own trademark sound. Read More…

Engulfed - Engulfed In Obscurity

With members of bands like Hellsodomy and Burial Invocation a relatively new dark death metal force emerges from Turkey. Engulfed already made their first impact into the scene with their ep “Through The Eternal Damnation”. Unfortunately this output did not really catch my attention. Now there is the debut “Engulfed In Obscurity” which is an immense piece of dark art. With over 50 minutes running time and songs lasting between five and seven minutes, this album could be challenging for the audience. Read More…
