Impressions Week 24 - 2017

18.06.17

AKSAYA - KEPLER

Aksaya - Kepler Middling

Satanath Records, 15.12.16
I still have a few drafts from the end of last year. As I was destroyed yesterday due to alcohol abuse the night before, I have not been able to prepare anything else. And as my spare time today is limited, something already half-written suits me fine.

With the exception of the logo, there is nothing about the cover that gives any real indication as to musical direction. You may as well determine what associations the cover give off for yourself, but it is beyond doubt musically misleading. Conceptually, however, it's more fitting.

WASTES - INTO THE VOID OF HUMAN VACUITY

Wastes - Into The Void Of Human Vacuity Good

code666, 16.06.17
French Wastes was founded by Laurent (Mourning Dawn, Funeralium) after a night of drinking binge, as a channel to create dirty, rotten and uncomfortable music in any state but sobriety.

Rumours spread, and this fallen occupied shack eventually became a haven for David (Sordide, Year of no light), Kostas (Pantheist), Nadine (Ashtar), Fred and Julien (Ataraxie*, Funeralium).

LOATHFINDER - THE GREAT TIRED ONES (EP)

Loathfinder - The Great Tired Ones Middling

Godz Ov War Productions, 30.04.17
Polish Loathfinder has dropped their first EP. On Encyclopaedia Metallum, the list over band members is limited to one man. On bass! the guy's name is Kacper Półchłopek, and the bass certainly plays a prominent role on the EP with the somewhat curious name.

The Great Tired Ones has four tunes of varying lengths which together clock in at rather exactly 28 minutes. That's really all I know about this bands and releases.

GRAFVITNIR - OBEISANCE TO A WITCH MOON

Grafvitnir - Obeisance to a Witch Moon Killer

Daemon Worship Prod. & Carnal Records, 16.12.16
This is a draft I've had lying around for six months. In conjunction with a review of Svartsyn, I realized that it was time to blow dust of old notes.
The Swedish trio Grafvitnir has been active for the past decades. However, from the constitution in 2007, a few years passed before all preparations were in place. The band debuted with an album in 2012, and released a demo the following year. From 2014, the guys have released an album a year. This is the fourth in the series, and the first one I get acquainted with.
