Do you remember Darkend or Dark Portrait with their somewhat insane incantations? For both you could just feel the Dark Lord rising to prominence or sense the arrival of the child-eating Lamia. Juicily daemonic and almost disturbing, right? So, we thought it could get no better. Or more menacing for that matter. Well, wrong – so wrong.
From the ashes of the Swedish band Waning rises Ov Shadows. And it is a cold, icy storm that their début EP Monologues unleashes onto these unsuspecting earthlings surrounding them. Supported by the folks of Xperiment XIII.
The band seek – and I quote “…a portal into chaos without barriers and rules…”. And this is exactly how this short blurb sounds like. Brutal riffing, kick-ass drum work and merciless rasps roll over you like a black wave of pure, delicious menace. Dark, powerful, foreboding, shadowy and totally Black Metal.
Now, if this provides a taste of what is to come, then the RMR crew will look forward to more of this.
Meantime, here’s a sample for your dark, unholy listening pleasure:
