Nigrescent (UK) - Palace of the Dark Light CD
Solitarily composed black metal, spewing a cult dissonance and hatred. Melody seeps through a caustically harsh (treble dominant) audio field which is made even more hideous by the cancerous and barbaric vocal shrieks. From more mid paced musical breaks, to a faster/note based attack, the rhythm section is engaged at the push of a button. Thanks to the sound quality (everything is audible, just very tense), the synthetic backbone of Nigrescent doesn't detract from the overall snarl of this project. Nigrescent is a punishing dose of black metal for those that deem their blasphemy fierce and cult basted. A man and his drum machine cannot be thwarted.
