Communion Of The Nameless
Chaotic, melodic BM that defies boundaries of sub-genres
Glasgow's Grat Strigoi presents another dose of uncompromising Black Metal that rages on the border of melodic greatness and grim oblivion.
The albums lead off track, "Hypomonē" serves more like a ritualistic intro as it has a bleak calmness to it. However, the remaining four tracks are long players that embody a rushed sense of brutality, necro-like production and malevolent soundscapes that catapult the listener to a world of doom and gloom. The vokills are downright sinister and compliment the music in an obstinate way. Complete with dreamy acoustic passages and chaotic attrition, this album ranges from breakneck speeds to doom filled riffs with a sludgy cadence.
Fans of cold, depressive Black Metal shouldn't pass this one up.
