One Master – Lycanthropic Burrowing (2017)


Hailing from the USA, today we have Black Metal battalion One Master and their fourth full-length release “Lycanthropic Burrowing”. Delivering one of the most intense USBM performances of the year, this release clocks in at 35 minutes of pure Armageddon. Always raw and uncompromising, the six tracks in this release will rattle your speakers and pierce your soul with their punishing nature.

The release fires up two very brutal tracks to instantly pull the listener into the band’s world. With “The Claws of Dionysus” and “Will of the Shadow”, we are treated to ravaging guitars perfectly paired with pummeling drums and very firm harsh vocals. The band’s musical core, while simple, it is just too powerful to be tamed and oozes out of your speakers with great violence.

One of our personal favorite tracks is the blistering “The Black Bat”, a song that has a certain old-school furiousness that many BM bands fail to capture these days. In terms of high-octane songs, “Death Resurrection” will surely rock your socks off with its intricate riffing, perfectly paired with intense drumming. For those looking for Immortal-esque melodic riffs, “Erosion” provides some killer memorable moments for headbanging purposes.

As the album closes with the atmospheric title-track, we are left quite impressed by One Master’s ability to deliver a back-to-the-basics ravaging Black Metal release. If you are a fan of punishing music that never lets go and always keeps things fresh and interesting, this is definitely a release you want to get. Overall, “Lycanthropic Burrowing” is one of the must buy USBM releases of 2017, so be sure to get a copy of that sweet limited vinyl edition before it is too late.
