Love Was Never an Option
Released: 2015, Independent
Reviewer: Metal-Rules.com UK Team
From the bleak landscapes of South Dakota (U.S.A) comes this frostbitten duo composed by Vemetrith(vox) and Krullnaag(All instruments. They started this as an experiment and then conceived the debut 3-track self-titled demo. Now they finally bring the first full-length “Love Was Never an Option”.
At the first contact with these 6 musical pieces, we are dragged to a display of very nerve pulsating black metal, that invites the listener to a world of where no light abides and darkness reigns supreme. The tracks ”River Oaks”, “Anxious Revelations” and the desperate ”Out of Reach” are three examples of a raw manifest invoked during this whole journey through these grim/atmospheric pieces. The calmness and nostalgic tones only come forth in the sombre “'Til Death Does His Part” that is more melodic and melancholic, on the other hand the “Love Was Never an Option”, a more mid-tempo based song , is clear that the slow paced vocal pitches and painful guitar riffs are evident emissions of tormented thoughts and exiled scenarios of pathos. The ending track resurrects again that ravenous and unquiet storm that feeds upon the very soul of the rejected elements of a hand once called hope…Last breath upon the flickering sight of the sunset.
This kind of sonority is indicated for black metal lovers or aficionados and also for the darker atmospheres followers. You won’t repent to penetrate these twilight domains.
