"Meditation Obscurium I",obscure pulsations crawling slowly to create spectral emanations with so very dense atmospheres.The whole composition converges into strong soundscapes and vociferations,evolving from time to time.The interesting point here is how each composition will carry you to depth regions of sabbatical practices mirroring you pre-eval atavism of lycanthrophy nature. "Procession IV -Visualization",arising from hidden labyrinths,marching into the void,the spectral emanations continues stronger than ever before,this time arranged through the use of hypnotic drone passages covered with suggestive vociferations,creating in depth atmospheres which keeps its own essence through the whole track.also is worth to mention in this demos DEFILER has included contributions from Cinifer of the Black Metal horde Miasma.

"Szertartas" Demo II
(Death Posture Ritualis)
The ritualistic expression known as GRÄVEN PESTANZ was born in 1994 E.V.and since them has been growing stronger at the point to become an obssessive transformation without limits,such limits were and are broken each day ,in each release...so,we have the pleasure to have inour hands "Szertartas" its second demo in which Marchozelos,explores his diverse incarantions through the use of diverse filed recordings and elements creating a mastepiece with monumental structures due how the music is developed here. Gräuen Pestanz is an expression of isolation of the highest order. Our spirit is that of the Lunar current, or that which is of balance between the nightside and dayside spiritual realities. The destruction of duality by means of the rites of the Death Posture. The Night of the Witch in the eerie light of the mid noon sun is the ultimate envisioning of the Sigils invoked within each Hymn. To penetrate into the Womb of the earth and grasp the meaning of our unholy brood, this is our manifesto. The reworking of human nature into the highest Alchemical transformation possible - the final end. That which is without god, at the hand of Adversarial guidance....The demo includes 9 hymns of darkeness which you shall being inmerse in total vacuity when penetrating in tracks such as "Ritual Irance (Dirgdoden)" built into extreme atsmospheres covered with such obscure elements including voices,diverse field recordings,screams and corrosive effects with create a vast spectral dimension ready to be explored by you. or perhaps the opening track "Dies Irae" with such middle eastern influences,giving you sensations to be in a persian ritual at desert...so,chant evolving through the whole track...so tracks as "Incarnation","Szertartas",Scelus Basiation" converges into such vaporous atmospheres some of them covered with such percussive elements which enrich so much the enigmatic atmopsheres created here. Bell sounds,whispers,marching tunes aer clear examples of how GRÄVEN PESTANZ evokes puere dark atmospheres with extremely ritual elements at the whole 9 tracks included on "Szertartas" this demo is one of those which you will never forget,due the magickal and ritualistic transcendence transmitted from start to finish.just wait a full interview with Marchozelos the mastermind behind GRÄVEN PESTANZ, next week here!!!May the gates to Arezura open wide, ZAZAS ZAZAS NASATANADA ZAZAS!!!!!

"The Wordless Aeon Awakened" Cass album 2009
(Death Posture Ritualis)
The ascencion to the six aon,has arrived through the 4 tracks cassette album released by the Salt Lake City's ritual ambient act BLACK SEAS OF INFINITY,evoking the absorsion of the other 5 aeons ,and as the god of silence,just exploring the void,the emptyness of human consciousness through unknown potencies of the eye of the serpent unveiling the aeon which bears no name, for it is beyond the speech and utterance of the human tongue. "Spacial Exhumation",congregating as the first exploration,mixing in deep dense ambient strcutures and voices creating different layers from ritual passages to drone spacial soundscapes.The way as voices are handled here are very interesting due the effect it causes when complementing with the whole atmophere and drones in general.The magickal continues its eclectic path through "Bornless,I Have Become",unspoken voices,visions of nothingness dancing through obscure pulsations and repetitive drone defragmentations creating powerfull atmospheres.One aspect to mention here is how each composition seems to put you in a magickal state trance due the dense hypnotic soundscapes evoked all the time. The process continues though "Devouring Conscioussness",another spectral piece with such obscure currents moulding themselves to the point to transport you to another levels of existence.The title track "The Wordless Aeon Has Awakened" is a reconstruction of the first three offerings by Akhkharu, being the first original material they have released since Nos Noctium Dominarum.so,a very interesting work released by Death Posture Ritualis and comes contained within a velvet pouch with a specialised sigil adorning each as received by Marchozelos of Grauen Pestanz. Within each is also contained various physical keys of meditation that unlock the wordless aeon... These keys include human and animal bones, consecrated grave soil and various other accoutrements....

"Vukolak" Cd 2010(Behemoth)
Michael W. ford Aka khtya Nachttoter,formed BLACK FUNERAL back anoon 93 E.V with the sole purpose to emanates grim ugly black metal,with in deep connections related Vampirism,Luciferism and magick.and since then,the band has released so many stuff as demos and albums all of them with powerful raw production which has characterized BLACK FUNERAL since the very beginning.so,now he has joined forces with Marchozelos in order to create a more grimmish and obscure album...then,"Vukolak",has risen from its crypt and mutating through lychantrophic rituals,evokes 10 tracks + Intro,outro. in which you shall expreience the most raw and primitive Black Metal album coming out recently.The Album opens with an intr called "Into The Ballinok Mountains II",a melodic piece using synth elements as a funeral march opening the gates to vampyric energies awakenened by "Under The Black Caul",rising as a ripping track with so primitive ,strong elements and mid tempo parts,and agonic vociferations which creates a very interesting piece full of anger and evil. So,then comes "Undead Hunger",another piece full of wrathful sounds and grim guitar chords which transport us back to early 90's BM days.The riffing structure of VUKOLAK is of Akatash as the fiend of perversion and the cold tomb of Nosferatu, a grave rotting in the blood of the dead. Each song guides through the violence of Nachtzehrer, who tears violently at its’ grave shroud and limbs, ripping through the grave in search of the warmth of fresh blood.then comes "Impaled Fields" and "Shades Gather Among The Blood",the first one arranged through sticking ripping chords and penetrating druming parts going from fast to mid tempo with a very suggestive atmosphere of guitars and bass!! and the second one,beginning with a ritualistic evocation and with the seconds turning into Grimmish and rawish sounding BM as characteristic sound on the whole track. "Sanctum Wamphyri",a kult track,built through percussive tunes,bathed with cold eerie atmospheres."Vukolak" the title track is a piece of demolishing darkness with strong elements from start to finish,arrrgghhhh!! " Wolfskin Essence",opens with funebre passages created by keyboards,giving you obscure and desolated sensations. "The Moonlight Glittered Upon The Snow","Ars Upir Sabati" are next tracks to comes,both of them with furious BM feeling and cutting edge gruitar chords,and closing the release are "Ripping Through The Aura" and Outro " Mors Omnipotens" Vukolak is stirred forth in the nightmares of the listener; the very essence of the Varcolaci-Astwihad Sigil is the gateway to each individual. Black Funeral’s VUKOLAK will be hated and adored as primal black cult metal; it is not for the ears of all.A masterpiece of pure Vampyric Black Metal Chaos in the old primitive vein!! A KULT!!!!

GRÄVEN PESTANZ / MIASMA (Usa/(Can)
"Into The Fire Of Isolation"
(Black Plague)
Another kult release coming to my hands...Black Plague records release a very obscure split cd from two excellent acts.The opening track is from the Canadian horde, MIASMA in the shape of Cinifer Valiros with the piece,"Into The fire",a dense mid tempo BM track with strong emphazing on cutting riffs and chords coming otgether to create a piece full of depressive BM atmospheres and dark passages from star to finish.so then comes GRÄVEN PESTANZ focused on the hidden spiritual path of forbidden witchcraft, and is of the spirit of Hecate. Our goals are many, but one is of sharing the pleasures and pain of the forbidden fruits of the Adversary. If you are interested in learning more about the Varmamarga, or Left Hand Path traditional witchcraft please,arrives with "Inceptum Quod Visum",a visionary transition full of obscure vociferations and dense pulsations,creating vasst atmopsheres with so extremmely obssessive elements.So MIASMA continues its destructive steap with ""Reaching for Choronzon",a dense composition with subliminal chords and screaming vociferations,creating suicidal atmopsheres,with a sutile but effective personality.GRÄVEN PESTANZ returns with "Ritus Excessum",a piece based on ritual soundcapes gathered through specific drone elements and sounds petrified into corrossive voices and effects,evoking distant spheres covered with qliphotic spectral visions.The participation of MIASMA in this release finishes through "Formless Reflection",torturing us with a fast composition full of sticking guitar parts,faster drumming parts and voices crawling from the whole structure of the track.Indedd,this composition have such powerfull elements worth to explore,due the intensity,and dark message transmitted through each one of the tracks contained here. GÄVEN PESTANZ surprise us with a track full of Maniacal,cutting BM chords giving us to think how destructive and obssessive is GRÄVEN PESTANZ when evoking its most in depth BLack Metal roots!!! an excellent piece for all those into ugly,grimm BM in its most destrcutive way.And also to those looking for obscure manifestations through obscure ritual ambient atmospheres!!
