Impressions Week 13 - 2017

A LIE NATION - BEGIN HATE (EP)

A Lie Nation - Begin Hate Poor

Inverse Records, 05.04.17
A Lie Nation is a Finnish band from Oulu, far north in the Gulf of Bothnia. The quintet was created as a fusion of two garage bands in 2009, but remained nameless until someone came up with the pun on “alienation” the following year. The band released their first EP in 2015, and now releases EP number two, a four-song piece of almost 17 minutes.
The band plays a form of melodic extreme metal that combines inspiration and influences from a bit too rich variety into of a somewhat grey stew in a dirty pan.

SKÁPHE - SKÁPHE² & UNTITLED (EP)

Skáphe - Skáphe² & Untitled (EP) Killer

Independent, 21.02.16 & 09.03.17
You might know Skáphe, but as usual we begin with a quick presentation.
The duo consists of American Alex Poole from amongst other Krieg and Icelandic D.G. from Misþyrming* et al. Both also take part in Martröð*.
The band released their second album Skáphe² last year, and has recently released an EP titled Untitled. I guess their creativity is limited to the music.
I never got around to write about last year's release, so when I'm now presenting their new EP, I'll just as well throw in a few brief words about the album in the process.

VACIVUS - NUCLEAR CHAOS (EP)

Vacivus - Nuclear Chaos Good

Goatprayer Records, 31.03.17
British Vacivus released the EP Rite of Ascension digitally and on prehistoric magnetic tape via Goatprayer Records last summer, before Hellthrasher Productions immortalized it on CD when autumnal storms gradually put an effective end to all voluntary outdoor activities.
The quintet from Sunderland, just south of Newcastle, is now out with yet an EP. Somewhat shorter this time, as they're content settling with two songs in 13 minutes. Both sound and expression is somewhat altered, but rather occult and rabid death metal with charred ethos still constitute the foundation of Vacivus' works.

ENDEZZMA - MORBUS DIVINA (EP)

Endezzma - Morbus Divina good

Pulverised Records, 24.02.17

Five days ago, Pulverised released an EP by Norwegian Endezzma, whose new album will be out in two days from now.

The EP works just like a good old single, with a first glimpse track of the forthcoming album on Side A, and an exclusive rarity on Side B.
