It took me more than a month to fully appreciate this masterpiece of extremity, but now I can say it's a strong contender for album of the year! Isn't an easy release to consume, but it's rewarding on the deepest and most profound levels for those who are patient enough to allow ULCERATE to work their magic. The album is a beautiful, meditative, and introspective exploration of death that brings out new dimensions and emotions from the band. An album you can easily get lost in. 👽💀 😈 Ulcerate🇳🇿 - Stare into Death and Be Still April 24th, 2020 Debemur Morti🇫🇷 Productions 😈 👽💀 #Ulcerate #StareIntoDeathAndBeStill #DebemurMorti #DebemurMortiProductions #NewZealand #Auckland #Auckland #DeathMetal #AtmosphericDeath #TechDeath #BlackMetal #AvantGard #metalhead #heavymetal #metalalbum #metalvinyl #metalcd #brutaldeathmetal #metalrecords #ExtremeMetal #Gorguts #DeathspellOmega #PortalBand #ArtificialBrain #Dodecahedron

the weekend can't come soon enough, what's left of my brain can be easily represented by the album art of @portal_officialhorror's 4th album, Vexovoid. overwhelmed by the chaos, thrown into a murky pit of abrasive sounds and dissonance, burrowing itself underground like insects, an atonal mass fallen out of non-euclidian space. ah, the album, not my brain. weirdly enough, I do tend to prefer this album over the often lauded, fan favourite, Swarth. something about the production sounding more organic, living than the mechanical creaks of the aforementioned album. cassette version, part of the Tempus Fugit boxset, released by @hellsheadbangers. #portal #portalband #vexovoid #deathmetal #blackmetal #avantgardemetal #experimentaldeathmetal #hellsheadbangers #cassette #cassettetape #cassettetapes #cassettecollector #cassettecollection #cassettecult #cassettecommunity #cassetteigclub #tapeheads #analog

May Vinyl Community Challenge #mayvinylchallenge curated by @jennn_erator || Day 22: Best Artwork | Packaging || Portal usually has some really cool art and packaging with their releases . I’m pretty impressed with the packaging on ION. It has a HUGE poster, a vertical gatefold, and metallic print. I also like the record sleeves made of translucent velum. The printer did a good job registering the graphics on the sleeves as they line up with each other when you shine light through them 🤓 . #portal #portalband #avantgardeheavymetal #blackmetal #deathmetal #darkambientmusic #blackvinyl

supinely bled, the pupae shed. if we're talking about downright lovecraftian atmosphere, nothing comes close to @portal__death's sophomore album, Outre'. this was a landmark album for me, completely redefining my definition of extremes in music at the time of its release, haven't heard anything comparable to it at that point. Outre' is a nightmarish album of completely dissonant, and murky death metal. noisy tremolo picked riffs buzz around and provide a wall of sound, while slow, plodding drums bang away in off kilter patterns as scribbles on a wall. the hellish, raspy, almost inhuman vocals of the (at the time) clock-headed Curator were also a big draw for me, especially with the seemingly nonsensical lyrics, with the words themselves falling apart when spoken, meaningless to the listener, but channeling an incomprehensible cosmic terror. now if you'll excuse me, I have an appointment to keep with the winged fungi beings to carry my brain-cylinder through the cosmos to Yuggoth. cassette version, part of the Tempus Fugit boxset, released by @hellsheadbangers. #portal #portalband #outre #deathmetal #experimentaldeathmetal #avantgardemetal #blackmetal #hellsheadbangers #cassette #cassettetape #cassettetapes #cassettecollector #cassettecollection #cassettecult #cassettecommunity #cassetteigclub #tapeheads #analog

Too much time has passed since I've written a longy boi and what album better than Ulcerate's 'Stare Into Death And Be Still' to mark my return to this format. However, today I am joined by @izzlesreviewvault in a what appears to be my first double review! They are quite rare 'round these parts so don't miss out! And now the usual: my intro to get you hooked, hopefully. _ End the hope, end the veneration, annul the monolith to which we gave rise, total reversion. These were the parting words of Ulcerate's 'Shrines Of Paralysis', a nihilistic ode to the  apocalypse. Four years passed since and now we face the ashes left in its wake. From them, 'Stare Into Death And Be Still' emerges. The timing of this release could not better now as most of our world sits silent in trepidation. Some people are terrified, some ignorant, some complacent and some, less fortunate, focused on just surviving. Whatever the case, each day the media continues to blindly showcase statistics with next to no context. Deaths and those infected are being translated into mere numbers which isn't anything new considering how desensitized of a civilization we are but in this particular situation, it all reeks a bit more than usual. This perfectly correlates to the main theme of the record – “death reverence.” Bleak for sure, but luckily for you and me, this particular trio creates art rooted in the darkest confines of the human psyche. _ Ah, it truly feels good to be back. Forgot how fun it is to write without silly restraints such as word limits. Anyhow, will link the full thing in my bio so be sure to read it so we can discuss. Oh and expect more longy bois on @sleepingvillagereviews, absolutely plan on keeping the momentum I gathered here so stay tuned. Catch you all later!

I have literature listed as an interest in my bio so i thought I’d post a book or two. This is my favourite book in my collection. The complete works of Edger Allan Poe, 1927, hardcover. My favourite poet/author. The master of the macabre. One of the earliest practitioners of the short story format and also considered to be the inventor of the detective fiction genre. His works are deep, dark and overflowing with passion. As for a musical connection, his works have inspired everyone from Portal (who used the poem “The Conqueror Worm” as a screenplay for the music video to the song “Curtain”) to Rotting Christ and Stevie Nicks who have used his poems as lyrics. His works have also been adapted into films almost constantly for over a hundred years. @portal__death @portalband_fanpage @rottingchristofficial @stevienicks @edgar.allan.poe.australia #edgarallanpoe #poe #poem #poetry #poetrycommunity #rottingchrist #portal #portalband #stevienicks #theraven #dreamland #southpark #books #gothicbooks #goth #antiques #bookstagram #gothicphotography

Some of you might've realized by now that Finland produces some quirky, odd and chaotic music. But I didnt't review anything chaotic this week did I? That changes today as I believe it's time for Desolate Shrine to step up into the spotlight. Their latest LP 'Deliverance From The Godless Void' appeared in many a list last year, including mine, and for very good reasons. Desolate Shrine have crafted this deadly mixture of highly atmospheric death metal and combined with black and doom metal. Suffocating, hazy and bludgeoning, this won't be a pleasant journey but when was that ever a problem? The record explodes with "The Primordial One" attacking your eardrums with schizophrenic blastbeats and a tortured shriek before unleashing monolithic fury upon you. Intense but yet somewhat airy, this is a very promising start. The band does not dwell on a single motif or use the same technique, no, they rather dance around genres and experiment. See how "Unmask The Face Of False" completely differentiates from the opener. Slow, sludgy and weighty, the track shifts constantly and keeps you on your toes. Oh and yeah, you realize how much the production kicks ass pretty early in the record. Ladies an gents, in a sea of DR4s and DR5s one records proudly stands above its peers. 'Deliverance From The Godless Void' inhabits in DR10 teritory and this is how modern death meral record should sound. Dirty but just enough, weighty, murky but crisp, this record is a repulsive beauty and all should bask in it. "The Graeae" literally jumpscared me after lullung me into a false sense of security. Jumpscares are a very rare sight here so tread carefully. And to top this all off "...Of Hell" arrives in all its disgusting and monolithic glory. 'Deliverance From The Godless Void' is one of 2017's most vile and greatest death metal releases. If you seek something that sounds like a wall of the thickest fog aimed to subdue you, this is the absolute best.
