Greetings, Decibel readers!

We’ve acquired two new releases from UK black metallic bands this week, two of probably the most attention-grabbing ones within the recreation, I’d say. Together with them we’ve acquired a pair of demise metallic bands from the frozen north. Oh, and re-recordings of two of an important albums in excessive metallic historical past, releases that effortlessly blow away 99% of what’s popping out right now.

You’ll see what I imply should you hold scrolling.

Calligram – Place | Momentum

The most recent salvo of thunderous black metallic from the UK’s Calligram. That is the followup to 2020’s The Eye is the First Circle and reveals the band honing and refining its hovering strategy to the darkish arts — with loads of drama and ferocity to be discovered throughout the smoke and fog.

Cavalera Conspiracy – Bestial Devastation and Morbid Visions (re-recorded)

I do know, I do know, MOST of the time re-recordings are terribly suggested and bands actually shouldn’t do it. However that is completely different, Max and Iggor really did a unbelievable job right here, particularly with Morbid Visions. The unique recording was nice for what it was, however the songs now actually have the guitar tone they deserve. The Bestial re-do is extra for enjoyable, fortunately Max stored the reverb cranked on his vocals so it retains the uncooked feeling of the unique.

Deitus – Irreversible

One other UK-based black metallic band, and one other with personal introspective tackle the sound. The band alternates between customary atmospheric black metallic and weird, doom-laden songs like “Voyeur,” a track that recollects bands like Draconian and even some post-rock.

Desekryptor – Vortex Oblivion

Oppressive, haunting, all-enveloping demise metallic insanity. Easy as.

Purtenance – The Rot Inside Us

Talking of demise metallic. Finland’s Purtenance has been busy since their return within the early 2010s, The Rot Inside Us being a followup to 2020’s Buried Incarnation. The band’s music retains all of the darkish and menacing energy of the early days, a spirit which numerous new-old-school bands attempt (in useless) to duplicate.
