Album Review :~ Onirophagus - Endarkenment

I enjoy prototypical brooding doom band. Death/Doom metal is a style that remains untapped and it is hardly swallowed by Metal fans in general. When someone tells you about Death/Doom metal at first a delineation will click automatically in your imaginary such as excruciatingly slowly, pulchritudinous heavy, eschew crushing, bleakest, most hauntingly beautiful, graceful, down-tuned, slow-motion soundscapes of drifting, floating, dreamlike music, groovy riff moving in gentle transitions to vaguely shifting perspectives of mood. Feel yourself decay, gaze helplessly, thoughtlessly as the preternaturally odious head over the horizon, blotting out the last scarlet gasps of a moribund sunset, looming over the eerily tranquil and temperate ocean like an antediluvian menhir - massive, silent, mysterious and unspeakable journey, alone in a darkened room, lighting a few candles, unsealed some good wine and settling in for an uninterrupted hour of beauteous funeral doom sound driven by feelings and thus creates immense power and resonate overpowering as it is a purely exquisite voyage of yielding passion. That's probably just me and my definition. While some excellent, underrated and mostly overlooked band attempting to sell their flavor of the month band to potential listeners, there are some that simply exist outside of pre-existing molds. Some challengers exist, such as Onirophagus, a phenomenal addition to the Death/Doom metal roster. It's difficult to imagine, but "Endarkenment (Illumination Through Putrefaction)" surpassed than their previous work and moved to the whole new level with their something absolutely new and unimaginably great music level. The geographical shift in the propagation of Death/Doom metal has changed drastically over the past three decades. Spanish Death/Doom dealers Onirophagus unveiled their sophomore full-length album entitled “Endarkenment (Illumination Through Putrefaction)” in the starting of this year with 57:54 min running time along with heavy as fuck Death/Doom with more melody and more creativity than you can stand and you will definitely feel oppressed. Mixing doom metal with death metal along with atmospheric, gloomy vibe was their forte. The new album is filled with more unearthly, astounding, critical acclaimed, heavy, claustrophobic misery, enigmatic melodies. This new album consists of four tracks. Basically, Onirophagus was formed in 2011. Easily Onirophagus became one of my favorite Death/Doom metal band with their colossal, heavy and epic musical style. now I’m straight diving to the point about this new album.

This new studio efforts whole compositions showcased such power conveyed throughout the duration. This album embrace of the most beautiful of deaths. Lead voice rumbles deep in passing observations accompanied by a choir of ghostly angels soothing the sorrow of fading light that signals the end of experience in a world incapable of sustaining its illusionary promise of an ideal state of beauty and truth and a painful realization from which this music drifts away. This is truly a beautiful, wondrous piece of music, very organic and is constantly in motion along with your feelings, emotion. When I was spinning their latest studio effort for the first time I was overwhelmed, invaded my ears and this album sounds so authentic, mature and truly epic. This is triumphant sophisticated, spine-chilling atmospheric Death/Doom metal. Onirophagus banishes all our doubts regarding the genre describing the music of "Endarkenment (Illumination Through Putrefaction)" and putting particular emphasis on the first word and rekindle my endless love for Death/Doom metal. I cherish his unsurpassed quality, ability, and skill along with tremendous effort portrayed in this album in a radiant way with excellent diligence and nailed it. After a multiple listen their debut studio effort infused me with their unabating, powerful, overarching, chromatic, multi-layered, ultra-dense, monolithic, heart-wrenching Death/Doom metal just blew me away. Their musical style has a hypnotic effect and especially more atmospheric kind of Death/Doom metal but at the same time, the soundscape brings on sensations of crushing depression and evoke feelings of desperation making for a very dynamic performance.

This whole album reflects the grand diversity of this album.  A natural synthesis of mournful sounds and disparate styles all combined in one bold, enlightened display of unbound creativity. Easily this whole album hooked me up with its vocals filthy, crushing voice and their doom-laden, deep, unrelenting, melancholic, sorrowful, distant musical style with marvelous, exquisite works and builds layers of melancholy through high reverb along with the slow tempo. Their musical style avoids themselves falling into the usual boredom. "Endarkenment (Illumination Through Putrefaction)" fueled by an immediately convincing, weeping riff and an equally gripping bass line also it flows effortlessly and though the music is pretty dirgey. They manage to shift tempos just at the right moments to keep things rolling along like a grim parade. The kind of music that swells the heart even as it rips with a feeling of sorrow and loneliness and music is so emotional you can almost see the individual notes break down and cry. I highly appreciate and embrace this album.

This album is filled with a slew of delicate, whopping, intense, slow but powerful, heavy riffs work. In each track breathtaking, rumbling, filthy, soaring riffs, bass lineups matched in a good manner with colossal sounds are rightly used as an additional uncanny harmonic layer laced with dazzling, epic, exquisite doom-laden melodies. The album carries with it an aura that is austere, melancholic, bereft of sunlight but one that above all excels at comprehensively nailing the listener into place and fixing his mind on the subject matter. A grand manifestation of melancholy. This album indulges strong songwriting and brilliant musicianship. Vocals howling scream, hoarse , inhuman , deep rasps , deep lung-burning roars, immense,large voice emerged on this album in a well manner and intertwined perfectly with their utterly  spellbinding, obtuse, melodic, doomy, fully blistering, grandiose, distant musical style in a well manner with a lots of atmospheric accompaniment and  embedded perfectly. Overall you will get sinister, gloomy, desolate sound from this whole album. Some excellent stuff right here.

Each song has an energy, fluency and magical quality. Stand out tracks are all of them. Album artwork is precise, indelible. The production gives the music a powerful clarity, the atmosphere, drum propulsion and vibrant bass performance producing a non-stop surge of adrenaline. This new album displays their virtuosic performance and versatility with tremendous ability, skill and this one really makes sense and carries real emotions. Always melancholy and somber, they flit between beautiful and crushing and maintain that delicate equipoise across the album’s length. Overall "Endarkenment (Illumination Through Putrefaction)" is equally wrist slitting with some truly unhappy lead riffs that smother whatever hope you may have squirreled away deep in the crevices of your dark heart. This album is Spectacular, engrossing, significant, rich and another terrific piece that oozes solitariness. The production is absolutely impeccable, capable of handling both the massive atmospheric and gargantuan heft. Onirophagus manages to catch that grim atmosphere. After all, every event in our life that has to do with death has a profound effect on us, making us analyze and philosophize about our existence we are, unmistakably, both frightful of and intrigued by it. "Endarkenment (Illumination Through Putrefaction)" sets your mind alight, rather than your senses. This album sounds so authentic and a truly remarkable sonic journey from beginning to end. Indeed this album is such a true gem. This is highly recommended to add it in your collection. If you are looking for something different, epic this pure unadulterated album is perfect. The landscape might be barren with few visitors these days but in this case, quality over quantity wins the day. It makes me dream bigger, thinks harder, envisions broader.

Interview With Misanthropy, Hatred Filled Black Metal Dim Aura

Tel Aviv, Israel based band Dim Aura does a great job here with deep darkling-depths Misanthropy, Hatred filled black metal along with the robust introduction to the band's style and theme in which the protagonist vocalist summons dark forces to embrace him and transform him through ritual. Dim Aura is a whirlwind of aggression wrapped in the cloak of the occult. Off-kilter, dissonant guitars force themselves against the ears, harsh, raspy barks are terrifying in their aggression and rawness. Their infectious and eerie melodies demanding to be heard.

1. Well, Hello, how are you doing today? Warm greetings from India.

Dim Aura: Cheers Souvik!

2. Dim Aura was formed in 2010, so, Can you give me a brief history of how the band formed? Had you been in any bands or musical apparition before Dim Aura?

Dim Aura: Well, Ofir, E.F.F. and I know each other from youth. We had a Black Metal band named "Sitra Achra", but aside for some local gigs, nothing progressed with it, I guess it was an initial experiment playing together. After several years we grew apart from each other. In 2010 we decided to give it another go, and began writing music again, kept it simple and pure, nothing fancy. H. joined us after a few months of progress. I have known him from mutual interests that we had within the Black Metal scene, and we shared a split album of our solo projects (Crux Infernum and Infernal Nature). Since then we are a united Quattro sharing the same ideas and ideology that is expressed out as Dim Aura.
3. What bands inspired the direction that Dim Aura took and motivated you? Writers? Visual artists? Movies? Books?

Dim Aura: Actually, we are all influenced by different genres and forms of art, and with that said, we are all fascinated with Black Metal, as the black light shines brightly within us. Personally, I'd say that the source of inspiration may change, naturally, with experiences during different stages of life, it can be either visual paintings, documentary films on serial killers and mental illnesses, and also locations - ancient ruins and desolate places.  

4. There are two basic ways of looking at music. In the first, there is a mechanism for the arrangement of certain tones, musical style.in the second, a narration occurs where a story is told or a poetic function completed. In your view of compositions, which is more important? Where were you when you first thought the project had the longterm potential for you?

Dim Aura: In my opinion, it's more important that the music will have some sentiment, and that it will be attached to true emotions, true experiences, rather than just being technical and "empty". So, in case you present only two options, I would suggest the more poetic option is the one that should guide us. I think from the very early rehearsals, I had the feeling that Dim Aura, in its form, would be a long term commitment. Due to our early acquaintance, similar perspectives and ideologies, naturally we became good friends, and as we say to each other, Dim Aura is family.

5. What for you is the significance of the name, “Dim Aura”?

Dim Aura: I remember that when we thought of a name, E.F.F. suggested Doom Aurora, I liked the sound of that, but wanted to give it a deeper meaning, eventually, I offered a minor change to Dim Aura, and we decided it suites us, as a descriptive of an aura that is slowly fading away, from light to darkness, holy to unholy, life to death and so on. 

6. If you could tour with other bands in metal, who would you pick if you were looking for bands similar to Dim Aura?

Dim Aura:There are plenty of bands that would be a great match, I don't suppose name dropping would be appropriate here. Personally, I'd be interested in Scandinavian bands, but surely won't rule out other bands, as there are plenty of great musicians out there.

7. Since starting year Dim Aura released 2 full-length album till date, EP, etc and shaped the style of music. How do you maintain this consistency yet keep developing with each release? How do you write your riffs, songs? What is the most difficult part of composing songs as you do?

Dim Aura: I wouldn't say it is consistent, but we do hunger for more, new songs, new releases, new musical ideas to explore. Usually, riffs are written solely, then we bring it to our studio and run ideas around them, trying to glue them together, in a manner that would be beneficial to the structure of the song, later we work on the song production wise, thinking which part to elongate/shorten/move or remove. Lyrics are mostly written by H, and sometimes Ofir and more rarely myself are involved with some additional ideas. In our recently released album "The Triumphant Age of Death", H managed to do amazing work on the lyrics, which are the best we've had so far, in my own opinion. 
I would say that the most difficult part is the discussions and arguing that goes on when a song is still incomplete and several options are on the table. Somehow, we manage to go through with this process, evolving together with our creation. 

8. Do you have a preference for the type of equipment? In your mind, how important is equipment to the production of music?

Dim Aura: I would say that overall, we are not too much enthused by gearing up with massive stocks of equipment. Personally, I like to keep it as simple as possible, "plug and play", trying to avoid as much from numerous effects and pedals. With that said, E.F.F. is up to date with gear and equipment, so if there's a need, his knowledge is useful.

9. Well, now I’m going to the main point about the new album. On 22nd March Dim Aura new album “The Triumphant Age of Death” released which sounds extremely promising and rekindle my affection for Black Metal. When were these
tracks were written, and how does Dim Aura go about the writing process?

Dim Aura: The tracks were composed over a pretty long period of time, even before our Negged 7" EP. Naturally, we took our time with them, working to perfect them. 
Our writing process remained similar as in our first album. We bring riffs, bring in ideas to our studio, and we work through to mold it together. As mentioned previously, this process can be very frustrating for all of us, it is usually accompanied by arguments which can be very irritating, as each one has his own vision on what's the best option. Aside from that, it's highly time-consuming, but in the end, it works out and seems to be the right path for us.
It should be mentioned, that the one thing that did change in this album, is the recording process. We decided to give each other the space to do our thing, I think that we've learned to trust each other. Ofir was the only one who stayed in the studio to oversee the entire process of the recording, lending another set of ears that criticize which take is good, and which take could be better achieved. He was also deeply involved in the mixing, and mastering of the album. The end result met our satisfaction.

10. You are extremely potential. so, what's going on as far as lyrical themes on
“The Triumphant Age of Death”?

Dim Aura: As we all have a misanthropic nature, we are overall pessimistic, anti-social and anti-religion (extremely secular and apart from the religions that are practiced in our country), the lyrics are a result from these experiences. H managed to express it well, ink on paper. His lyrics blended perfectly with our music.

11. I’ve categorized Dim Aura's significant genre. As well you have extends your talents far beyond mediocrity. so, How did you get into this style of music and explain about this music genre?

Dim Aura: Personally, through my teen years, like many others I was a big fan of Metallica, I got familiar with other metal bands down the road. I guess I've started with the more extreme bands during '94-'95, and my taste in music developed in this direction. I found myself drawn to Black Metal, rather than technical death metal. Up to these days, that would be my "go to".

12. How would you describe the sound of Dim Aura to someone who hadn’t heard it, and what distinguishes your music from any other act in the same genre?

Dim Aura: I would not go to verbal descriptions of sound, I'd just say you got to give it a go, you may either like it or hate it. I'd be satisfied either way, as long as you're not indifferent to it.

13. Already Dim Aura unveiled the album. Do you have any Official Video or playthrough videos coming out soon?

Dim Aura: After the album was released, we focused on live gigs. We will, of course, consider having a new video out, but as for now, there's nothing in the making. We do however have some ideas for further plans, but at the moment, these should be kept between the four of us. 

14. Who came up with the album cover? I personally cherish each
and every released artwork because those are truly indelible, remarkable, appreciable and meaningful too.

Dim Aura: The artwork was done by ANIMVS, H. came across it and we all liked it on the first glance at it. The artwork for the "The Triumphant Age of Death" album is more minimalistic compared to our previous full-length album, which has a lot of details. I guess this was a natural turn, as the artwork done for Negged by Alona Dee of DarkArtworks, was less bombastic than the artwork done for our previous full length, keeping it more simple, yet, with no compromises on the artistic side.

15. Let's talk about your early memories. What's the first gig you ever went to? Have you been to any killer live shows lately?

Dim Aura: I've been to several gigs in my teen years that are memorable; some were of local bands and some of the bands from abroad. I especially remember that Ancient played in Tel-Aviv which was special, since it was not too common at that time, having Black Metal bands from abroad here, same goes for Dark Funeral that also played in Tel-Aviv. Lately, I guess some memorable gigs were in Festivals, such as Party-San (Endstille, Urgehal, Carpathian Forest), Steel-Fest (Satanic Warmaster, Sargeist, Dark Funeral, Cosmic Church), Speyer Grey Mass (Acherontas, Archgoat, Svartidaudi, and many others – the lineup was outstanding), Throne-Fest (MGLA, Gorgoroth, Taake). Locally, Marduk, Bolzer, Aosoth, Sargeist, and Watain (most recently) were here with great live performances. Again, so many great bands out there, I can continue on with name dropping, but I don't suppose it's really interesting – since every gig is unique and stands for its own, you can see a band several times, and it is a different experience every time.

16. In before you had performed a lot of gigs so, Which show was the most memorable to you so far? Do you get a good crowd response? Did you get offers to play in other countries or anything like that?

Dim Aura: I remember our first gig, which was the first strike when we were not much known, we got a great response. Later on, we had some other intense gigs at the "Black Metal Opposition" night, you can call it a mini-fest, that we organized having other Black Metal local bands at our side. The release shows for both albums are also memorable, playing new stuff for the first time. Usually, the feedback is great; I guess if the gig sucks, we just won't have any feedback at all. We strive to evoke some emotions at these gigs, not to keep it dull, with just 4 guys playing on a stage.
I guess, the most memorable show for me personally, is the one we had in Steel-Fest 2015, first time on Finnish soil, which is the capital of extreme metal from my individual point of view. Regarding offers, there are several that are on the table, but I can't disclose this info at this time.

17. Do you study other bands music to come up with ideas?

Dim Aura: Well, other bands that we listen to can leave an imprint, leave a mark, if their good enough and influential. So, their impact can be made subconsciously. We do strive for unique riffs and musical ideas of our own and we discourage rip-offs. 

18. How do you prepare yourself before the studio or especially for live performances? Did any band, in particular, inspire you in the shrieking department?

Dim Aura: No special preparations, we enter the studio or the stage, plug in, and after a few technical adjustments, darkness descends and manifests itself through our instruments and through H vocals. Chaos and negativity takes a sonic form and is unleashed upon the crowd.

19. Is there a difference in the band’s sound as compared to the Full length, EP
you’ve released in the past?

Dim Aura: Every release is unique and has its own hallmark. It is always Black Metal! we avoid having the same sound for every release. Music has such a wide spectrum of sounds, so I don’t see any reason to repeat the same sound, as long as we are satisfied with it. We never compromise on that.

20. You are from the Tel Aviv, Israel so, how much have you discovered about the extreme metal scene and how much of it were you aware of before the band started?

Dim Aura: We are familiar both with the local scene, as with the Black Metal scene abroad. Being located in Israel doesn't really change our exposure to music, overall, the secular people here are liberal, bands from abroad come for gigs, information flows. Even before the internet and globalization, most record stores had a metal section, you could trade with bands or labels abroad. As teens, we used to introduce extreme bands to one another. We visited metal festivals and got familiar with other bands through these channels.  

21. What do you do as individual band members to relax, when not working on music? Do you have jobs or business?

Dim Aura: We all have our day jobs and daily routine, but I guess this is not much of an interest for your readers so I won’t go into details. 

22. What albums are you listening to lately or just the bands and albums, in general, you're really digging right now and tell me about your anticipated album of this year?

Dim Aura: New records that are spinning these days are Mare "Ebony Tower" and Sargeist "Unbound". I am looking forward to the new Advent Sorrow record "Kali Yuga Crown". Besides that, I am certain that during 2019 other releases will see the light, our label Saturnal Records will probably release on vinyl Sacrificed Carmen "Hermetica", which I really appreciate.

23.last one question, what are your future band goals & tell us something about an upcoming tour. Lastly, lots of teenagers aim to be full-time musicians. Many of them might be without any proper guidance, any words of wisdom for them?

Dim Aura: We just had 3 gigs, supporting Sargeist in their first show in Israel, opening for Watain (also for their first time here), and we had the release show for "The Triumphant Age of Death". We are looking into new gigs, and also have some discussions regarding a tour abroad, but it's too soon to disclose any information.
For the teenagers, I'd say that if you have talent, and if the Black Metal flame shines bright in your heart, you will find your way. It would be very patronizing by giving any additional advice.

24. That's all I've got right now.best of luck for the future. Looking forward. thanks a lot for enduring this torture haha. Any final thoughts, comments for the readers? Always welcome to India. We are keen to see you play live. If I forgot anything, please insert it in here.

Dim Aura: Support the underground, and be loyal to yourselves, no one else will.

Split Review :~ Inferno / Devathorn - Zos Vel Thagirion

Czech Republic's purveyors of chaos, Ritual whispering, invocation Inferno and the bringer of wrath, darkness, and liberation Draconian elite Athenian black metal group Devathorn call upon the maddening rays with the brand new split entitled " Zos Vel Thagirion" via World Terror Committee. Mixing black metal with esoteric, obscure, mysterious, introspective passages, dense otherworldly blasting, avant-garde together was always their forte. They both have created a sound as powerfully evil and they intend to abuse us with a punishingly relentless display of rhythms and some overall solid riff, albeit a touch generic for the genre. This is filled with more unearthly, astounding, critical acclaimed, heavy, claustrophobic misery, enigmatic melodies. This new Split is consist with 4 tracks. Indeed they both are the well-established group of bands who can make a full sound and creative and with lots of excellence, ritualistic, hatred, blasphemy in his lyrics, with well crafted, distinct content. After so long in existence, they have gathered a wealth of experience and dark talents, which they liberally pour into their music. "Zos Vel Thagirion" is an infernal and raging metal of blackness. They have been slinging noxious, elevated extreme metal scene. An ever-increasing number of black metal bands feature dissonance and accessibility in equally impressive amounts. Certain black metal bands were able to gain proper attention and actually attempt to cross both realms and unite them under one cohesive effort. Indeed they both are the well-established group of bands who can make a full sound and creative and with a lot of excellence, ritualistic, hatred, blasphemy in his lyrics, with well crafted, distinct content. Aforementioned both bands have poured their musical devotion into a chalice of sulphur flame where it burns with obsidian light. Now I’m straight diving to the point about this new Split.

Their incantations whole compositions are an extremely filthy and unsettling piece of sinister euphoria and unearthly ambiance .when at first I’ve checked out their first excerpt I was just overwhelmed and this split was one of my long awaited, anticipated split off past year. Both bands each and every member are excellent musicians appreciate their unsurpassed quality, ability, and skill. All of their tremendous effort portrayed in this split in a radiant way with excellent diligence and nailed it. After a multiple listen their last studio effort infused me with their Unrelenting, powerful, blasting, overarching, chromatic, chaotic, multi-layered, ultra-dense, ritualistic, monolithic black metal musical style laced with atmospheric vibe just blew me away.T heir's collective wisdom and expels it as almost 32:37 minutes of shadowy artistry. Their musical style has a hypnotic effect and especially ritualistic, esoteric, arcane vibe which adds to the more atmospheric kind of black metal but at the same time, the vocals and other parts of the riffing are straight forward blasphemous simultaneously.

This whole split reflects the grand diversity of sound brought together on this split. It is really not easy to describe their complex musical style. Black Metal with unconventional influences enjoys indeed tend quite popular.A natural synthesis of dissonant sounds and disparate styles all combined in one bold, enlightened display of unbound creativity. Despite the often mysterious ,furious,cacophonous ,heavy and barbarous form of black metal assaults  laced with dark eerie,gloomy  and occult  atmosphere with a lots of segments of slower,mid-paced tempo too where they combine cavernous drum thrashes, melancholic guitars ,previously mentioned all  aspects  enriched this split that is very powerful, strong and excellent all at the same time along with a good  balance  of black metal music, melody and brutality with strangulated, filthy, horrific riffs work and those effective chants simultaneously borrow blackened, gloomy, sinister vibe. They know how to hone their aggression to deal with some grievous wounds. I highly appreciate and embrace this split because of their distinct style.

well, this split's opening track “Azazyel Iscariot” starts with sonic assailment, the obtuse, grotesque, whispering, atmospheric sound followed by an onslaught of tremulous, dark eerie, savage riffs and a wall of blast beating, spectacular drums laced with aggression, deliberate cadence. Their whole composition and musical style are impeccable also borrow great atmosphere. They both have injected ritualistic essence, obscure, arcane, esoteric vibes into blasphemous black metal style. Their musical representation evolves into souls wandering vicious, crushing and ominous wasteland. This whole split gives u pitch-black feel from beginning to the end and I warn you this is a gloomy journey.

This split is filled with a slew of cadence, apocalyptic, squalid, ominous, hellish, crawling, slow but powerful riffs work. Drumming, the percussion line up is bleak, frantic, solid, clattering and powerful. In each track, breathtaking, morbidly delicious, scalding, macabre, soaring riffs, bass lineups matched in a good manner with hellish, devilish chords and horror, mournful sounds are rightly used as an additional uncanny harmonic layer. The most striking thing you’ll notice about the sound of them is the air of darkened auras, occult moods and haunting melodies that quite literally drips from the noise they create. This whole split's sound delivers a dissonant, grim feeling, sinister, occult, gruesome black metal with raw emotion and pure energy. “Zos Vel Thagirion”  endures beauty of black metal. This split indulges strong songwriting and brilliant musicianship. Vocals howling scream, hoarse , immense, inhuman voice and effective chants emerged on this split in a well manner and intertwined perfectly with their utterly  spellbinding,obtuse, mysterious,fully blistering, blasphemous, ritualistic, grandiose  black metal,distant musical style with a lots of melodic,atmospheric,occult,ritualization accompaniment  and  embedded perfectly . Overall you will get sinister, gloomy, desolate, mysterious ambient from this whole split. I really worship and highly cite both bands.

Each song has energy, fluency. Stand out tracks are all of them. Split artwork is atrocious, grisly, indelible. Overall “Zos Vel Thagirion” whole split is Spectacular, engrossing, significant, rich, Spirituality full of evil, Scary shaking of dark vibration. This split sounds so authentic and a truly remarkable sonic journey from beginning to end. Indeed this split is such a true gem. I’ll say this whole split is the aesthetics of black metal.Outstanding another one release so far. This is highly recommended to add it in your collection.If you are looking for something different, epic this pure unadulterated black metal utterance is perfect and it will pull out your soul from your body and take you on a journey into another universe. so, enter the void and I am sure definitely you will come out stronger, darker, gloomier than ever before.
