Vesperith - Vesperith (2019)


Unleashing a truly transformative and trascendental release, today we have Finland’s Vesperith and her self-titled full-length release. As a one woman entity, Sariina Tani has crafted a unique experimental release that will transport the listener to the bowels of hell with waves of aural dissonance and will bring them back to the surface with angelic chants. Not for the impatient listener, this release will grow on you with time, but once it does, it is unrivaled when it comes to cinematic experiences.

Setting a very dramatic and enigmatic mood, “The Magi” gets the journey started with eerie atmospherics and haunting vocals. After some moments of peace and clarity, “Fractal Flesh” unleashes crushing drums and harsh vocals to infuse uneasiness on the listener. The mixture of Black Metal and atmospheric elements works magically on this track.

With a very Event Horizon-vibe, “Refractions” and “Valohämärä” again diverges from the traditional to elevate the listener’s consciousness level to a whole different dimension. This last track is particularly chilling as Tani’s angelic vocals create an interesting diversion from the unsettling atmospherics. Our favorite track has to be the completely chaotic and brilliantly convergent “Quintessence”, which provides a nice mixture of mind-numbing atmospheric and furious BM onslaughts.

Easing the listener back to reality with the enchanting “Solar Food”, we are left quite impressed by Vesperith’s ability to mix influences and ideas to create a very unique and dense release. If you like weird stuff like Swans, Björk and Oranssi Pazuzu, then this release should be enough to apeace your craving for uniqueness.
