Holy fiddlesticks is this dark and ugly. There's this cursory grinding effect that whittles away your soul. I really enjoy these nameless entities that randomly pop up and release jewels like this.
Favorite track: Chthonian Initiation.
A unique, nearly-nameless entity from Sweden, FŌR create sepulchral black/death metal from uniquely-located, surely-nameless depths. Their Kundaz debut album appeared seemingly out of nowhere in early 2013, and now arrives the Blakaz Askǭ Hertô 12" MLP via IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS. Devoted to the Germanic black witch Gullveig and her Thursian bloodline of ravenous hordes of wolves and werewolves, the concept of FŌR 's music is based upon the sacred bindrune, Ulfhamir, and pursues to invoke the black wolf-spirit within. FŌR accomplish this with ceaselessly churning, mercilessly morbid, nearly amorphous BLACK/DEATH that's dusted with the ruins of industry/industrial. From there, across Blakaz Askǭ Hertô FŌR awaken the savage beast and invoke the dark, vile blood from her veins: the eitr of Niflheim itself, the wrath of monstrosities that dwell within the night, behind the trees in the shadow. An invocation of pure lycanthropic wisdom, obey the bloody, pitch-black call of FŌR's Blakaz Askǭ Hertô...

PSA: if there was an album you heard a couple years ago and thought it was ok, listen to it again and you might love it.
That's what happened to me with this album. I cannot fathom why it didn't stick with me back then. Same thing happened with Decoherence's Unitarity for that matter. Matten

We might feel like we have been here before many times in recent years, but Ritual Chamber’s take on cave-dwelling death metal really does feel different than obvious points of comparison in Disma, Grave Miasma, and Incantation. Other albums may sound haunting and oppressive, but The Pits of Tentacled Screams actually sounds evil. Atmosphere aside, the riffs here are absolutely devastating and vital, with not a wasted second to be found. How nice would it be to have new Ritual Chamber in 2020? Ippocalyptica
