Putrefactio – Sigética (2022)

Putrefactio
Release date: February 2022
Label: Ruined Pig Records

This Black Metal horde made some ears turn a few years ago with their Sizigia EP and now a couple of years since then we get this second EP from them.

Only two tracks but they are blizttering with a powerful might as the opener Acausal relámpago, this has a great vibe when it comes to the riffage but when the vocals come in this explodes as you get high and low ones through this and some great fast parts as well but it takes a turn when it slows down but really doesn’t matter as the band makes it all go down good, great track!

Anatemismo, with a mystical guitar intro that gives it a twist but then it burst out to the senses, and they break it down again but not to fear this is fucking good, these guys write some great lyrics that take you to another mind set, so I give them credit for that.

I think it’s time they give us a full length as this has all the goods you could want, both tracks are killer!

Aarkanne – Revelatio (2022)

Aarkanne
Release date: May 26th, 2022
Label: Independent

The third part of the band’s trilogy and short as only three tracks are here for the taking.

And not a dull moment. all three are in the same vein as on what the band has delivered in the past and lots of good raw and ripping going on here, it’s like you’re on a ride from the start.

If you got into the bands previous work, you should enjoy this I certainly did, it just has a great raw vibe to it.

Oclofobia – Thermidor (2022)

Oclofobia
Release date: May 22,2022
Label: Independent

So, this popped up in my mail today and this duo got a lot of praise on their debut EP from last year, both these guys are part of Svb Imperivm so they know what they’re doing.

And this must be their full length but no mention of it as six tracks make up this ritual, so it opens up with Okhlos, a strange intro to this as you hear a bunch of people singing then it goes right into the track, and you can hear there are low and high pitched that make it interesting, the pace is your typical black metal with some melodic overtone trying to seek in. Verbo is a bit different as this is more hard hitting the drums lead the way here, it’s a solid number just wish I had the lyrics to all of this.

Interesting intro to Moléculas as you hear some kids talking and one ask the other “What are you doing here today?” and the other answers back “For the liberty of the village which has suffered 30 years” but to the track this is a really good one, some really fast riffage and some of the tempos that are on here really gave this a feeling like no other, one of the highlights on here for me to this point, and it continues on Esquizofrenia as this is blistering with great lyrics that fill the atmosphere.

Inmanencia, another strong number that fills the release, great riffage and the vocal split makes it even more likeable, to the closer the title track Thermidor well this starts out with some spoken part but couldn’t make it out but from there it burst out and this piece fills in just fine, if you enjoyed this from the beginning it will finish it off just right.

I really enjoyed this I just hope it gets a physical release soon and needs to be heard.

Genocidal Impalament – Portador de Flamas Funerarias (2022)

Genocidal Impalament
Release date: May 13th, 2022
Label: Independent

This is a Death/Black Metal one man project, one of the guitarists for Bestial Mortem (Sibyllinos Inspicerent) to be exact, a compilation of the two demos released earlier this year.

And this is heavy as fuck, and straight to the point, some really punishing metal here, Genocidio Universal is a great opener and the vocals are sick sounding but could of been a little higher as they seem to get drowned out at times.

One thing I noticed is that this whole thing comes in under 14 minutes and there are 8 tracks, so be prepared to be slaughtered, this has nothing new to offer the genre but it’s good for what it is and I see potential in it all.

Crazy maniacs will probably love this, I hope this dude keeps this going and we hear more in the near future and it’s available on Bandcamp.

Gryftigæn – Fehunðyrdauðr (2022)

Gryftigæn
Release date: March 1st, 2022
Label: Inferna Profundus Records

With so many Black Metal bands coming out of Chile these days it’s quite often I will come across something that stands out to my ears and this release has hit the spot.

As Æter opens this up a short intro that sets up the ritual we are about to go into, Djúphljóð is the first taste and this a raw piece with some hate filled vocals by Lord Valtgryftåke and just the pace of this track got my mind going with thoughts of pure mayhem, the pace got different on Sacrament of Phosphorescence a bit slower tempo here but the atmosphere is dark but it gets heavier as it goes, pure chaos as his has a spectacular drive towards the end.

Seiðursongen comes out full force this is one filled with some interesting changes and the vocals standout more as well, a longer track full of hypnotic aspects that crawl into your brain, as we head into Crossing Through the Pillars of Azazyl which is an all-out unleashing of hell as this is haunting as hell, a very eerie feeling to it as the agonizing vocals show, an epic piece.

As we near the end Drowned in a Rising Sun is pretty much a conclusion piece as it has a feeling of the end of the ritual we just went through, and it proves as Eiðr myrkr closes this, a short outro that fits in well.

Black Metal hordes should give this a listen, some good shit here.

Ad Finem Omnia – No Peace · No Dawn (2022)

Ad Finem Omnia
Release date: March 21st, 2022
Label: Purity Through Fire

The duo is here with its first full length of black metal and this ritual takes us on a ride filled with all kinds of passages, from the start Vultures got me and the lyrical content is what stood out here more for me so the interest was there, the music is well as it could be it will grab you from the start.

The Abyss, this track is the first one that was on the demo so those who know, know it’s harder hitting from the previous and the feeling is they want to take you to the abyss so prepare to be taken a really good number, the production takes this version to another level.

With a title like Solve: Route to Extinction I wondered what this could be about and not to be surprised, hit the spot right as society has gone to shit and this takes us there but the way this is composed is superb, has some great hooks that will sink into you, really enjoyed this one. Coagula: Promethean Fire and from here you can hear the band has many elements to their music, each track throughout this whole thing has a life of its own and remains on the blistering side of things.

Doomed to Death, the single is on here as well and if you liked the first version you will enjoy this as Pitch Black is the other demo track covered and the production brings new life to these old tracks so enjoy them.

Only three tracks remain but will leave those to you as this is a solid release from start to finish a bit of everything you could put into a black metal release is here some rawness to perfection, give it a listen.

Bestial Mortem – Epístola de inminente colapso (2022)

Bestial Mortem
Release date: March 2nd, 2022
Label: Independent

Nice demo of Blackened Death Metal from this band that has been around for a while now, each track has its own feel but all pack a punch, my favorite being Distopía Inexorable with all kinds of tempo changes this has a great feeling to it.

And the closer Remanente Memoria is just a great way to end this as a killer riff rides it out.

Short and sweet is what you get here and to the point, let’s hope for a full length now as these guys are due for one by now.

Insurrexión – Insurrexión (2021)

Insurrexión
Release date: December 14th, 2021
Label: Lapis Lazuli

A late comer from last year, as the band call themselves Astral Metal of Death with a pinch of black, this is one of the best releases I heard as this is supposed to be a full length. it only consists of four tracks but the sound this beast of a band delivers got my blood flowing as these guys take it to another level you could say.

Each track here has its own life to it, the vocals are sung in Spanish, but all come across with different tones at parts they fit well, El eco de la voz, the third track on here really has an interesting feel as the bass opens it up but then blast into a frenzy of chaos.

This isn’t your typical release as it is really out there but if you appreciate great musicianship give your ears a taste of this, as the flyer says “Not for Everybody” A cd version will be out soon on Sinistrari Records.

Funestus – Noxignis (2022)

Funestus
Release date: January 22nd, 2022
Label: Independent

The latest from this one-man black metal project and only two tracks of chaotic vibes as this might not be for everybody but it has a punch to it as The Ancient Flame I has this pure evil from hell feel to it as everything is going off and it continues on The Ancient Flame II, but this track has a little difference but not much as the production is on the raw side and that is what fuels this demo, but this has more passages in the veins, so it had a better vibe.

Definitely something for the black metal horde to check out.
