TERRA TENEBROSA – the reverses – CD digipackCD digipackdebemur morti productions2016
« The Reverses » is mind-crushing: artistically uncompromising, bone-shatteringly intense and devilishly heavy – a contorted monument to sinister devastation.
The atmosphere distilled on this suffocating record is ignominious and truly eschatological. Layered malicious sounds lurk beneath a frenetic flow of creepy riffing; the perpetual echoes of nebulous voices are enmeshed within walls of guitar noise atop imposing drums furiously hammering home a destructive rhythmic march. As if that were not frightening enough, guesting leading names of the extreme scene – Jonas A Holmberg (THIS GIFT IS A CURSE), Alex Stjernfeldt (THE MOTH GATHERER) MkM (ANTAEUS, AOSOTH) and Vindsval (BLUT AUS NORD) – provide a ghastly final touch.
