BLOOD OATH

Band:RITUALS OF THE DEAD
Album:BLOOD OATH
Label:DUNKELHEIT
Format:CDD
Genre:BLACK METAL/DEATH METAL

Behind every legend, there's always a tiny bit of truth. While it's obviously still open to debate how much credit one must give to the Buckriders mythos - or 'Bokkenrijders' in their native tongue, the various gangs of thieves or who kept under their thumb the southern part of Holland throughout the 18th century by pretending they had signed a pact with the Devil and rode through the cold northern sky on the back of flying goats - it's still make one hell of story. And the prefect setting for an extreme metal album such as RITUALS OF THE DEAD HAND debut, Blood Oath... This brand new band was put together by two members of Belgian instrumental post-rockers Hemelbestormer, on Vàn Records. After the latter was done writing for their second album, their guitarist Filip Dupont felt the urge to dwell back in the same type of epic black/death genre his former band GORATH had became famed for, especially on their final album The Chronicles of Khiliasmos released in 2012. Recorded throughout 2017 and mastered by Patrick Engel at the Temple of Disharmony studio, Blood Oath is like the audio equivalent of famous 1922 Swedish silent movie Häxan about witchcraft. Far from our now computerized and PC-controlled society, with its four lenghty tracks (ranging from nine to eleven minutes) and very cinematic interlude ('The Gathering') and doomish passages, it takes the listener back into an age where superstition and local folklore still permeated all those small religious communities, with the story being told from the Buckriders' perspective. Actually, the cover artwork is a custom made painting of and old tree nearby their hometown where the vilains were said to gather around before launching another of their killing spree. So, truth or legend? Simple folklore or further proof that the Devil is always lurking somewhere in the shadow, especially behind man's vilest deeds? Whatever your answer is, one thing is sure: with Blood Oath, the Buckriders will ride again! Music by RITUALS OF THE DEAD HAND. Guitars, bass, vocals and synths/samples recorded at Crestfallen, Belgium by Lykaios. Drums recorded and final mix at Studio 508 (Tongeren, Belgium) by Jan Lathouwers. Cover painting by Renilda Smeers. Mastered by Patrick W. Engel at TEMPLE OF DISHARMONY in April 2018.

 

 

PSALMS OF THE RISEN DEAD

Band:ECTHIRION
Album:PSALMS OF THE RISEN DEAD
Label:SOUNDMASS
Format:CD
Genre:SYMPHONIC/PROG/EXTREME METAL

Formed in 2008 and releasing their debut EP in 2009, Ecthirion have been slowly and meticulously working on their follow-up ever since. December 2018 sees the culmination of this work in the release of the UK band’s full-length album “Psalms of the Risen Dead”. An orchestral metal band with a broad range of influences and contrasts, Ecthirion’s aim has always been to create unique and thoughtprovoking compositions, both musically and lyrically. You will hear elements of power metal, death metal and even tech death, with Eastern and folk influences bringing variety. Also very much inspired by nature, some songs are reflective of raging torrents, while others are brooding and serene. An array of people contributed to the project - 6 vocalists and several classical musicians who help to create an authentic neoclassical sound.
The album features belting vocal performances from Celso Alves (Allos) and Eugen Dodenhoeft (Far Beyond), as well as David Cooney’s (Jorvik) intense screams contrasting with emotive female vocals. With riffy guitars and intense drumming, “Psalms of the Risen Dead” is a spiritual journey for every listener to embark on, with lyrical themes of personal struggle, death, conquering sin and the brevity of life. The accompanying 16-page booklet illustrates this opulent metal musical, ending with death and what comes after.

THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND

Band:1914
Album:THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND
Label:ARCHAIC SOUND
Format:CDD
Genre:BLACKENED DEATH/DOOM

The music is massively heavy and steeped in the shocking misery of shattered bodies and pervasive death, and it’s also explosively violent, with searing riffs and soaring leads that, together with blazing drumwork and wrenching voices, raise visions of the horrible grandeur and mortifying terror of such man-made conflagrations as the battle to which these songs allude. It will really get your head moving, too - and I’m glad that 1914 have also continued to insert excerpts from period songs, as they do at their previous album. (No Clean Singing).
