Impressions Week 23 - 2017

HORRID - BEYOND THE DARK BORDER

Horrid - Beyond the Dark Border Good

Dunkelheit Produktionen, 01.06.17
Every day offers an endless flow of generic, “homonymous” death. Italian Horrid knows to implement just enough melody and other hooks to make their death metal a bit more interesting.
Than again, the band does have long-running experience.
The band was founded by Max and Belfagor as Rites of Death in 1988, but changed its name to Horrid the next year. During the nineties five demos/EPs were released. Max resigned after 2014's Sacrilegious Fornication, the previous album. Beyond the Dark Border is the band's fifth album, and Belfagor are joined by two fresh faces.

VANHA - WITHIN THE MIST OF SORROW

Vanha - Within the Mist of Sorrow Very Good

Black Lion Records, 28.12.16
Vanha is a Swedish band that performs slow and leaden atmospheric death/doom bordering on funeral doom.
The band resides about 60 km north of Gothenburg, and was created by Jan Johannson no more than a year ago. He was planing the release of a two-track single, but when Jesse Oinas joined on drums and the duo signed a deal with Black Lion, they soon changed their game plan.
More songs were composed and the duration of the material extended to 45 minutes. And so, the debut was completed and released during yuletide some short six months ago.
