This year already whelped pretty sturdy and traditionally-minded Doom Metal records that we still fondly remember. But the real rush towards oldish tears and trepidation started in 2020 when old-style doomers boarded the massive RMR 100-gun flagship with a mighty roar. Since then, our lookouts never stopped searching for more slow ‘n’ heavy sorrowful pieces.

One would typically go a-hunting on anglo-saxon shores for bands in that genre with – perhaps – a few injections from Western Europe. But sometimes the RMR radar will detect promising candidates from other spots on our vast globe. So, let’s head East for … [...] Click to raid more!

The devil is in the detail. And in the name, too. Because, Nomen est Omen, as the saying goes.

So, when Fvneral Fvkk released their newest album Carnal Confessions in September 2019, it got that proverbial cold shoulder. Because – let’s face it – the name the band chose for themselves really does not incite any fervor to write that review.

In other words, whenever a moniker speaks of juvenile bad taste to say the least, the crew over here puts those records on the backburner. There is only so much marketing and legal can explain, you know.

Bleak winds and an icy cold live outside of the RMR offices. A snowstorm from the East is being delivered right now and the temperature drops rapidly towards absolute numbers. At least that is what this feels like these days. And I don’t even live in the frozen tundra of Siberia, even if it feels like it. This is supposed to be temperate over here. So, where did the friggin’ global warming go all of a sudden? But hey, you have no choice but to go with the flow. And enough whining for now.

RockmusicRaider Review - Et Moriemur - Ex Nihilo in Nihilum - Album Cover

Sometimes records sit in the review pipe for no good reason for a very long time. And get passed over time and time again, just to be rediscovered more by accident than by design. This so happened with the Dying Ones from the Czech Republic.

In 2014 Et Moriemur unleashed a pretty underrated Doom Metal album called Ex Nihilo In Nihilum. Just to get a re-issue very late in 2016 by Minotauro Records.

So, why feature this album on the blog now, so very long after the fact?

First, because they are good at what they do. There is … [...] Click to raid more!
