VOËMMR - Sombr Moebrd cs
Comprising three new, lengthy tracks, this demo is the band's first new recordings since their bolt-from-the-blue debut album, Nox Maledictvs, last year, which has justifiably caused quite a stir in the black metal underground ever since.
Truly, that same strangely shimmering yet hellishly hysteric atmosphere which provocatively marked out Nox Maledictvs is here in full on this new demo - in fact, it goes even more beyond The Beyond. Stopping clocks and heartbeats alike, VOËMMR's paradoxically wounded/violent iteration of black metal takes the rawness for which its Aldebaran Circle is renown and rips its inside out, exposing the ghostly clean tones that lurk within, only to be corrupted by a very-nearly-insane sort of execution.
It's uncomfortable listening, but endlessly compelling. With more new works to be revealed in time, VOËMMR's new demo should satisfy the sickly hunger that lurks in the most depraved.
