Impressions Week 22 - 2017

MORGON - EVOKING ETERNITY

Morgon - Evoking Eternity Good

Via Nocturna, 31.05.17
So much music, so little time. I've only heard Evoking Eternity about five times, so I don't know the album in and out, but I have no trouble recommending German Morgon's second full length.
The band's first album, Black Light of Liberation, also received an approval when it was re-released in 2015.
Evoking Eternity continues in the same course, with melodic black metal with a devilish touch. However, the sound has got a facelift, where some excess mud is chiselled away.

RIENAUS - SAATANALLE

Rienaus - Saatanalle Good

KVLT, 26.05.17
Rienaus is Finnish for Blasphemy, which explains why two Finnish black metal bands have this exact name.
This band comes from Espoo, just outside of Helsinki, and is the only really active of the two.
When the band released the debut Aamutähdelle in 2014, I had it on the radar for a while, but it still escaped my clammy, pale white and bony claws.
Where the debut sounded overly sharp, Saatanalle is more rounded and resounding.

CYDEMIND - EROSION

Cydemind - Erosion Middling

Independent, 26.05.17
Cydemind from Montreal, Canada, recently released their first album.

The band plays instrumental progressive melodic metal, and tries to make a twist where violin largely replaces the rhythm guitar.

Cydemind, however, does use lead guitar to help carry out the melodies on Erosion, but it lacks a lot of what we know as a riffs.

TOD HUETET UEBEL - N.A.D.A. (EP)

Tod Huetet Uebel - N.A.D.A. Killer

Caverna Abismal Records, 31.05.17
Almost a year ago, I finally heard Malícia, the debut album of the Portuguese duo Tod Huetet Uebel.
The album was first released more than half a year earlier.
They released their first EP in 2013, a year after the band was formed, and are now ready with their second EP.
Behind a cover inked in blood, N.A.D.A. presents two songs called and Da.
The band has developed a bit, but Deathspell Omegas Paracletus, which I mentioned as a reference in connection with Malícia, is still a kind of common multiple.

DESEKRYPTOR - CHASM OF ROT (Demo)

Desekryptor - Chasm of Rot Middling

Blood Harvest, 26.05.17
Desekryptor to all appearances consists of three corpses, half dissolved by putrefaction.
The trio comes from Indiana in The States, and this is their second demo.
The first, titled Demo 2016, was recorded last year and released early this year.
Chasm of Rot lasts for 18 minutes, presenting five death metal songs from the deepest, most decaying corner of the underground.
