Mysterious entity “Escumergamënt” delivers one of the most punishing and dense Black Metal debut releases of all-time with the piercing “...ni degu fazentz escumergamënt e mesorga…”. Featuring over 44 minutes of high-octane Black Metal filled with gaudy old-school atmospherics, this album creates very interesting and demoralizing atmospheres as it barrelsdown your speakers.
Featuring members of Stilla and Setherial, this release starts with eerie atmospherics in “Of Old Night And Winter”. This track slowly transforms into heavier territories with crafty drumming and completely crushing shrieks of pain. The band’s riffing is quite intense and perfectly fits that old-school vibe they are going for on songs like the opener, “To Envy The Corpses” with its catchy passages, and blistering onslaughts of “Antediluvium”.
While we get that old-school vibe, the production behind this release is impressive, allowing all elements to perfectly shine through its mix while the atmospheric component is uncompromised, as tracks like creepy “I Sang Of Murder” showcase. The album settles into a more melancholic and even creepier vibe with our favorite “The Grievous Miracle”, and its chilling pace and atmospherics. All of these elements perfectly climax with the killer “Black Ash And Ruin”, and its very moody and haunting progression.
Overall, “...ni degu fazentz escumergamënt e mesorga…” is one of those gripping releases that is full of aggression balanced with atmospheric brilliance. The balance achieved by Escumergamënt in their debut release is commendable and showcases the band’s intricate musical quality and pummeling ideas. If you are in the market for Black Metal that is both old-school and yet sophisticated enough, look no further and pick up a copy of this release.
