THE MOST IMPERATIVE DOOM METAL BAND SINCE THERGOTHON, EARLY MY DYING BRIDE AND CATACOMBS !!!
The monumental modern funeral doom act, Adversvm, has joined the infernal horde known as the Moribund Cult! Established in Germany, 2015, Adversvm came forth with a mission, one which they have clearly accomplished: To create art more sinister than black metal and death metal, and to manifest this sound with apocalyptic verses.
“Dysangelion” is the 2nd full-length recording from the tenebrous Titans and will serve as their debut on Moribund Records.
“Dysangelion” is a powerfully ominous offering; every note is drenched in darkness, creeping with the icy touch of the abyss and every beat is tell-tale of your doom! Shadowy, atmospheric interludes collide with utterly crushing and mesmeric death/doom passages. Highlighted against the dense structuring of mixed vocals and bludgeoning pulse, is terrifically tormented guitar work. Chorded ataxia suddenly rots, as transient austerity emerges, and then sloughs into murky, down-tuned dismal euphony.
As a perpetually swinging transmitter of tempestuous conviction releases furious hearts from status quos paradigms, witness Adversvm’s Apocalyptic awakening as “Dysangelion” crushes All!
Some nice atmospheric funeral doom here, with My Dying Bride-influenced gothic undertones. Good variety of material rather than uniformly melancholic sonic monoliths. Most of the songs build from fairly gentle beginnings to heaving crescendos. Of particular note is second track, Weakness, an acoustic guitar-led funereal tour-de-force. Sonny92
