Intriguing raw black metal listen. The guitar tone almost lends itself to an edgeless industrial tone but is a raw black metal album at it's core. softer keys drift across the floor and provide some relief to the high tenor tension and well as dynamic points for phrasing.
A potent concoction of raw black metal, queasy synths, and abrasive noise, with a subtle gothic vibe.
Favorite track: Als het vuur van mijn toorn is ontstoken zal het branden tot in het diepste dodenrijk.
IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present DODENBEZWEERDER's striking debut album, Vrees de toorn van de wezens verscholen achter majestueuze vleugels, on vinyl LP format.
Hailing from the ever-ascendant Dutch black metal scene, DODENBEZWEERDER formed in 2019 and promptly let inspiration spill forth, with two rehearsals, an EP, and then a demo following in rapid succession. A duo of S and M, the band's moniker translates to "necromancer" in English, and justifiably so: their black metal is truly sorcerous, and lingers like the stench of death itself.
Spartan yet shimmering, DODENBEZWEERDER's full-length debut bears the weighty title of Vrees de toorn van de wezens verscholen achter majestueuze vleugels, and indeed is its ghostly gait a lot to absorb. Rubbed raw but never amateurishly bleeding into the red, the scabrous soundwalls that DODENBEZWEERDER build here retain a haunting, magisterial aspect, smothering the listener with density and spaciousness simultaneously. It's these stark contrasts which the duo expertly weave together into the caustic fabric of Vrees de toorn van de wezens verscholen achter majestueuze vleugels that elevate them beyond the hordes of others currently playing "raw black metal" - not to mention their frequent moments of repose, pulling back the barrage of diseased decibels for something cleaner if not even more tense and terrorizing.
As one nightmare ends, its lingering aftereffects begin and curse consciousness anew: behold DODENBEZWEERDER's Vrees de toorn van de wezens verscholen achter majestueuze vleugels!

I love Algleymi very much but there’s one area in which this is superior: production, especially the drums. Otherwise they’re two quite different records, but both are black metal classics as far as I’m concerned. Hopefully we won’t have to wait long to hear more. Metallurgical Fire
