CRYSTAL: FAREWELL (2017)
Cuarto larga duración para este proyecto italiano que mezcla en sus composiciones distintas emociones y estados de animo. Podríamos definirlo como un black metal de tintes intimistas, en donde los teclados son el elemento fundamental de las composiciones, acompañados de algunos sintetizadores que crean un ambiente entre la fantasía y la ensoñación, rozando la frialdad y la mística, en unas composiciones que si bien tiene claramente como referente a los suecos Lustre, en este caso Haate se adentra en terrenos más hipnóticos en sus composiciones. Ni que decir tiene que el oyente que venga buscando guitarras, batería y agresividad ya puede alejarse de este proyecto que se nutre sobre todo de unos acertados y trabajados teclados en donde se sustenta toda la música de este "Crystal : Farewell", capaz de transitar por distintos y variados estados de ánimo y de entregarnos diferentes emociones que supongo que cada oyente interpretará de diferente forma. Las voces prácticamente no tiene protagonismo, limitándose a un par de apariciones casi que anecdoticas. Eso si, lo que a primera vista puede parecer una propuesta casi que simplista y no muy atractiva se va convirtiendo en algo con un trasfondo maduro y oscuro, que se va apreciando con paciencia en cada nueva escucha.

SERENADES OF ASTRAL MALEVOLENCE (2016)
La primera demo de estos franceses ya supuso un toque de atención dentro de la escena black-death que sin lugar a duda se ha visto reforzado con este Ep de tres temas. El tema inicial no deja de ser un pequeña intro que en menos de un minuto cumple con el cometido de crear el ambiente de muerte y oscuridad que se desata en los siguientes dos temas. La contundencia de la propuesta está fuera de toda duda, riffs brutales, voces que se mueven entre lo brutal y lo desgarrador y una ambientación que raya lo agobiante y lo putrefacto. Esto es lo que transmite Impure Ziggurat en estos apenas once minutos de Ep, densos y contundentes moviéndose magistralmente entre el black death, con una sutil dosis de atmósfera pagana que se vislumbra en un segundo plano. Sin lugar a dudas trabajos como estos muestran el buen hacer dentro de vertiente más extrema del género y dejan al oyente con las ganas de un álbum de larga duración, pero ya. (8,5).

Discografía:
  • Demo 2017 Demo 2017  
Demo 2017 (2017)
Cuatro temas contiene la primera demo de la banda finlandesa en donde se van adentrando en terrenos del metal clásico. Con una producción cruda y minimalista en ciertas partes se nos presenta el primer tema que da comienzo a la demo "Nothing but Whores", con unas voces mezcla entre crudeza y agresividad presentes en temas sucesivos, la batería sonando impertérrita pero sin acabar de cuajar del todo, tal vez con una excesiva presencia pero con cierta perdida de contundencia, una mayor producción de la misma redundaría en un mejor resultado final de esta demo. En cuanto a las guitarras se ven un tanto ensombrecidas en el sonido final arrancado a la demo pero cuando cobran presencia se mueven por terrenos entre lo melódico y lo oscuro, bien elaborados los riffs, necesarios ,pero con la urgente necesidad de tener más presencia en el futuro. Una demo, en definitiva, que cumple con las pretensiones de sonar underground, sucia y sobre todo agresica yviolenta, sensaciones que están presentes en todo momento, al mismo tiempo que el buen hacer del black tradicional de la escena escandinava, con margen de mejora, si, pero también con el echo de contar ante nosotros con una demo con un sonido y propuesta de clara orientación clásica en la escena.

WRAITH RITE


Primera entrega en forma de demo para esta nueva banda creada en 2016 en Madrid. "Awaken" es el título de este su primer lanzamiento que a lo largo de sus cinco temas y en casi veinte minutos recoge un metal extremo de diferentes influencias y estilo, siendo tal vez el thrash el estilo más presente y más logrado, pero también hay cabida para otros como el death, el doom, algo de black y sobre todo influencias de metal clásico. Tal vez esta variedad de estilo contribuye a que este trabajo adolezca de cierta falta de concreción , aunque también es cierto que en la parte final del mismo podemos encontrar los dos temas más elaborados e inspirados con cierta influencia clásica y en un plano más doom. La banda cuenta con una página de bandcamp en donde podemos escuchar la demo y sus páginas de facebook, twiter y youtube  estar al tanto de todas las novedades que se produzcan en el seno y el entorno del grupo.






Limited to 300 copies with 12" inlay.

SCÁTH NA DÉITHE - INTERVIEW


1. The first EP came out about a year and a half ago, when you said that the composition and recording of "The Horrors of Old" was natural and quite fluid, tell us a bit as has been the process of composition and recording of this new Album? Perhaps knowing the repercussion that had reached the previous Ep., Was an added pressure to confront the composition of this "Pledge Nothing but Flesh"?
The album was written over the early part of 2016, the process was very similar to the writting process of the EP. When we rehearsed we would record ourselves playing the songs start to finish at the end of a rehearsal, when you are composing songs of this length it can be nessesary to do this so when we would meet again we would be sure of what we were playing. We were extremely pleased with the responce we got to the EP but we didn't feel any pressure to try and live up to it or try recreate it's success.

2. In this new album continue to deepen in the different styles present in his previous work, which are mainly death and black and I think they have also worked in the more atmospheric part of his sound, adding some passages quite good, achieving a Album with a more defined and mature sound, can we say that they have taken note of the best of "The Horrors of Old" and that they have worked and evolved to find the sound of this "Pledge Nothing but Flesh"?
We were very focused from the start of the writting process of this album on wanting to expand upon the sound of the EP. We had the goal of compossing a full length album when we started working on the songs so the addition of atmospheric parts and new elements was very much intentional. Over the course of the album it was very important to us that the listener would be introduced to a new feel or sound as the album progressed.

3. Whose idea was it to include the two instrumental pieces in the album and what objective did you look for with them?
The first piece is an introduction, it's purpose is to set the mood and help the listener to become absorbed in the atmosphere we created on the album. The second instrumental piece is there to provide a contrast between the harsh songs that went before and to lead into the second half of the album. Pledge nothing flesh is arranged the way it is to be an album of two parts, the first half is all out rage, where as the second half is meant to be more reflective and sorrowful. 

4. The inspiration to write the lyrics of the songs, still comes from the stories and legends of the Irish tradition?
Yes absolutely. I take all the inspiration for the lyrics from Irish folklore and traditions, but as I say they are there to inspire, not to be simply copied. I don't just recount the story of what happened in these folk tales and use that for lyrics, I want to draw on the imagery present in these tales,the lessons and emotions they conjure up. I am extremely passionate about reading these stories, there is an endless amount of sorrow and misery present in many of these tales, so much so that I find it hard not be moved by them to create.

5. During this year, do you contemplate the possibility of bringing the group's music to the live, offering some concert?
It is something we are interested in doing but for the foreseeable future we won't be able to make it happen.

6. Do you continue to get the digital edition of your music for the digital format as well as for the cd, there are no offers on the part of some seal to be able to edit your music or is that you feel more comfortable in this way to have control over your work?
If you are talking about working with labels we are open and looking for labels to work with to release our music. We are going to be releasing a limited edition cassette of Pledge Nothing But Flesh this comming March through the label Metal Defiance Productions. We are trying to find a label at present to release the album on vinyl also.

7. With the recent albums edited by already consecrated bands like Primordial, Celtachor or Slidhr and with the irruption of other new bands like Apokathilosis or Mortichnia we can say that the health of the Irish extreme metal is in good health?
Yes the Irish scene is very healthy, there are many bands currently making a name for themselves outside the confines of a small country like Ireland, and for such a small country there are a large number of extremely talented bands. Besides those you mentioned I would encourage people to check out Aeternum Vale, Coscradh, Mourning Beloveth, Gaoth, Legion Of Wolves to name a few. For those who really want to discover all the amazing bands Ireland has to offer I would recommend visiting the Irish Metal Archive website.

8. "Pledge Nothing but Flesh" is a short time market, what expectations have you created for this album and that awaits your followers in the coming months by Scáth na Déithe?
We hope to reach as many people as possible with this release and hopefully gain some new fans and attract the attention of labels. We are overwhelmed with the reaction we have recieved so far and exremely grateful to everyone who has supported us and purchased the album. Going forward we hope to record another EP before the end of the year, it is currently in the early stages of being written.

9. Thank you very much for taking the time to Black Metal Spirit, if you want to add something for the followers of Scath na Déithe, this is the place. I hope the questions are to your liking.
We would just like to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone who has supported us in any way and listened to our music. Sláinte!

YAYLA - INTERVIEW


Good evening, thank you very much for accepting to answer these questions, how about everything for Nanrum or London?
Namrun is full of religious sons of bitches and disgusting peasants I am glad I am in London. Though I miss the vast and transcendental nature, the religious cockroaches ruin a great place where our band was formed and takes inspiration. London is a great place to live; I travelled a lot and found that this city is my favorite. Truly atmospheric, I can even write an album about London one day.

1. Yayla was born in 2007 and publishes its first demo a couple of years later, we can say that Yayla unlike Blliigghhtted, Funeral of God, Red Bible Black and Viranesir, your other projects, has a special meaning, what led you to to create Yayla? What does Yayla's name refer to?
You look at a distant landscape and it looks beautiful, but there is no way of touching it except you go there, and when you go there it is no landscape. This is death seen from life, and it is what this band is about. Yayla was our high school band with Merdumgiriz. We were listening to lots of obscure extreme music back then and always wanted to hear something more violent and depressive than anything else so we did it ourselves. I really liked brutal and powerful metal, soul tearing misery in music, grandiose orchestral, acoustic, dungeon synth and I wanted a more extreme form of all this. I wanted to be the voice of death, and am still trying. Yayla is my first project; it means alpine meadow, we formed it in Namrun’s meadows where we would spend months in isolation making art in ancient castles. I wanted to channel the essence of death I got from nature and ancient ruins, which is where I get it the most, into any sort of music that I make with this band. 

2. Unlike Blliigghhtted and Viranesir with those who have been editing material fairly regularly, the truth is that Yayla had been parked almost four years, what was this silence?
I committed suicide and spend a long time in the mental asylum after the last Yayla album. It had a lot to do with the last album and naturally it was hard to go back to it. I wrought very monotonous and hypnotic pieces of magic in the fist isolationist metal trilogy (Ruhizolasyon, Sathimasal and Nihaihayat), also I also made a monotonous audiovisual project with dungeon synth soundtrack (Fear Through Eternity). I thought I was ready for a certain death, but it seems I wasn’t, so the journey had to go on. Time had come to make a new beginning, dynamic start, hence I tried lots of things with the other bands and started making dynamic and progressive music, and I did a Yayla album with all that experience of 5 years in my side projects with the depressiveness and powerfulness of metal and ambient as usual, Pas.to.rale is the result.

3. The themes you deal with in your other bands are more controversial, however in Yayla you approach philosophy, transcendence and ancestry, what leads you to try this theme in Yayla Where does the essence of Emir Toğrul reside, The extremes of irreverence or at the end of philosophical thought or yet it is situated in a middle line?
The essence of Emir Toğrul lies in beauty and harmony. I am a very happy person that has everything he wants. In all these projects, the lyrics I write are relatable things that make sense rather than occult bullshit or mindless overdone metal aesthetics. Be it controversial, satanic or philosophical my lyrics are accessible and easy to understand yet speak of truths harder than even the most ultimate badass would like to hear. My essence is that I do not pretend to believe in objective values. In Viranesir this manifests in a lack of morality, in Blliigghhtted as a satanic indifference to evil, and a beautiful lack of connection to life in Yayla which means it is as controversial but very indirect in its delivery compared to my other bands. It can be called a musical expression of nihilism and death.

4. It is clear that the music you produce and in this particular case in Yayla is dark, cold, and even at times uncomfortable, is your music the reflection of your mind and personality?
There were times that I lived through intense and prolonged suffering which of course shaped the approach of all my bands. People often tell me I make the most uncomfortable, intense and dark music they have heard. I have spent years in unjust sufferings and mental disturbances that only got progressively worse at the time they were happening and I have been very keen on channeling all this into my music. On the other hand, in my current daily life I am usually quite happy and have a lot of friends, lots of sex and fun. I got money and live in London, don’t drink or smoke or take drugs. I am an easygoing person who is socially very active and healthy. But I went through Dante’s hell to come to this, and that will always be where my muse comes from.

5. Do you find it difficult to take care of all the instruments and voices when recording and producing Yayla albums, or do you have the help of third parties?
I don’t find it difficult, matter of fact it is easier and more fun than working with others. I have
people begging me to help them with their own music and I feel sorry that they are unable to do it themselves. I don’t need help, I learned how to do everything myself, it is the best way to make art. Fuck people.

6. In his music there are classic black influences from bands like Bathory, but there is also a background of classic bands not so related to metal, is this true?
The beauty of the melodies equals the brutality and violence of my music. That beauty comes from non-metal music. I listen to a lot of classical music, maybe more than metal. Sir Ralph Vaugen, Albinoni, Vivaldi and million composers mostly but not limited to pre 20th century graves and adagios. Everyday I listen to symphonic, chamber, ballet, vocal, symphony whatever goes so long as it is not happy. They really influence my compositions. I also listen to a lot of pop, house, ambient, gangsta rap, folk, industrial and everything in some sort of way influences the beauty of the melodies. I grew up listening to Mozart, Cat Stevens, Barbra Streisand, Simon & Garfunkel, Jesus Christ Superstar, Dire Straits going through forest landscapes at night, so it is where my heart lies.

7. As a musician, you are a photographer, direct from the cinema and actively participate with the record label, where does he make time for everything? And which of these disciplines do you feel most comfortable with?
I am a dictator and can’t be under another boss with my art but running my own record label sucks, doing PR, sales, releases shit like that is boring as fuck. When it comes to making art, I love them all and feel comfortable in all of the areas. Time is no problem because I gladly spend most my free time to art, I really love creating its my addiction. It is like asking a smoker how does he find time to smoke 2 packs a day. I wish I could do more films, but it takes more people to make music, which sucks. I don’t like working with people, so I do more music, which is a singular job. But here are some of my films: http://merdumgiriz.org/Gotsiken/Films.html

8. With Yayla just released album recently, but what future plans does it have with all the bands of which it is part?
I see a new death; hence as I said, I started a new phase with Pas.to.rale; there will be couple albums that I will spend in this phase. I want to make an acoustic album and a full on orchestral or ambient one. But who knows what will happen, it is my muse that dictates what I do not the other way around. Viranesir will keep making psychotic and perverse albums, Chaoscunt (ex-Blliigghhtted) will be more violent than ever, and all of my projects will be miles ahead of the rest of the current garbage that gets released in the name of music.

9. The release of most of your music through your label "Merdümgiriz" seems to be almost necessary due to the high volume of publications for your different projects and certain aspects that surround it, but what criteria do you follow at the time of To select bands for the label?
The most important criteria have become not fagging out. I don’t want politicians who claim they are “just interested in the music”, I want total psychos who know that art & especially extreme metal mean more than music and ready to go all the fucking way. I want people to be ready to die for their beliefs, and reflect this in their art. I had many artists who couldn’t rake the stress of this label and left and I needed to kick many people out as well because they were lesser than I initially thought. It is an elite label that does not give a fuck about money and fame but supremacy. I need bands to stick to the label in tough times because everybody hates us and wants us to fail. Webzines threaten my artists to not work with me, and stuff so I need the artists to be with me full on like their life depended on it. We will go on and I need warriors to go on with me.


10. I suppose you will be satisfied by the repercussion and good criticism received by this "Pas.to.rale"?
No, I always want more and more, I am never satisfied. But yes it is getting quite a lot of good reviews and sales. It hasn’t been a month and I got like 10 reviews all over 80/100. Lots of people who reviewed my previous work say it’s my best. I like it when it gets a lot of attention. But at the same time, I want to make new things and Pas.to.rale is a thing of the past.

11. Thank you very much for taking the time to Black Metal Spirit, if you want to add something for the followers of Yayla, this is the place. I hope the questions are to your liking.
Extreme metal is more than just music; push the fucking boundaries don’t be a domesticated faggot. I really liked the questions, thanks for talking to me and reviewing our albums!
