AETERNUS PROPHET "Exclusion Of Non-Dominated Material" /CD/

May, 19 2016

The second full-length album by Ukrainian Oldschool Raw Black/Death Metal band. Rude groove riffs with black & dark parts mixed with Doom Metal moods. Vocals has become rougher, a lower impaling to the very viscera growl has appeared. The lyrics written in Ukrainian draw you into the atmosphere of struggle, unrelenting hatred of the reckless activities of certain social sectors and let you think about what your life depends on your own, without strong desire to develop, and without pushing for action - it will remain useless and pathetic. Recommended for fans of such bands as: Novembers Doom, Rotting Christ, Sceptic Flesh, Belphegor, and Behemoth. Metal Scrap Records, 2016 (MSR122/CD).

The second full-length album by Russian Melodic Black/Death Metal band. Electric polarity between aggressiveness of Black Metal and melodics of instrumental experiments covered by poetic lyrics. The second album has not lost the distinctive feature of the band - a bilingual lyrics, where original tunes intertwined in Russian and Ukrainian languages, maintaining the mystique of Gogol and soft lullabies melodiousness of folk songs. Poetry has a special place: melo-declamations, fragments of poems of the Silver Age era, joined together with melody of Ukrainian speech. Fausttophel do not adhere to strict canons as part of its style and constantly experimenting with arrangements. However, in the album clearly heard the old-school sound of music, instead of the newfangled sound.
