Qualia (2016)
Este Ep supone la primera toma de contacto con esta banda polaca que ha irrumpido con fuerza en la escena. El EP está formado por tres temas siendo el inicial el más representativo y el de mayor influencia ya que en casi dieciocho minutos nos ofrece un tema que discurre por diferentes vertientes del metal extremo, ofreciendo siempre desde una perspectiva black elementos vanguardistas, progresivos, industriales e incluso viking, siendo todo un ejercicio y demostración del potencial de la banda. El segundo tema es mucho más directo, la atmósfera siniestra y oscura del anterior corte desaparece para dar paso a un tema mucho más directo y visceral en donde los riffs de guitarra cobran más protagonismo y el thrash se cuela en cada nota, conservando una cierta atmósfera de black clásico. Para cerra este trabajo se decantan por uan versión de "K. I. N. G." de Satyricon que sin lugar a duda nos da una idea tanto de las influencias de la banda como del potencial de la misma. (8,4).

  BEING 
WHAT DOES IT MEAN? 
GAZING

WHAT IS TRUE AND WHAT IS NOT? 

WHAT YOU HEAR IS DEAF 
WHAT YOU SEE IS BLANK

COVERING MY EYES 
CHAINED TO MY LIES 
NO SUCH THING YOU`D THINK 
KNOWLEDGE MEANS NOTHING 

VIBRATE - SENSE CLEARLY DRAWN

PASSION - HEART FILLS WITH PLEASURE 
BLACKNESS - CENTRE OF LIFELESS 

CENTRE OF LIFELESS 

ONCE I SAW A SIGN 
QUALIA`S GREAT BRIGHT LIGHT 
FACE DOWN IN MELANCHOLY

COAGULATING DARKNESS (2017).

Después de unos años en los que se ha labrado una trayectoria y hecho un hueco en la escena a base de editar varios splits y un Ep, junto con un recopilatorio la edición del primer larga duración de esta on man band afincada en Escocia no deja de ser una buena noticia. El black que nos ofrece James, es rápido y directo, cada riffs  de este álbum parece sacado de las bandas de thrash de los años ochenta, influencia muy clara a lo largo de todo este trabajo. Sin lugar a duda los seguidores de la vertiente más cruda y directa del género con enormes y demoledores riffs de guitarra encontrará este álbum muy disfrutable. "Coagulating Darkness" despacha en menos de media hora todo un ejercicio de sonido clásico, en donde el thrash lleva la voz cantante en la composiciones, la velocidad se deja sentir en cada riffs y las influencias de bandas como Toxic Holocaust, los inicios de Bathory y por que no Kreator o Sodom están a la orden del día. Todo ello viene acompañado de unas voces que en línea generales son bastante directas y se decantan por una vertiente bastante agresiva. A destacar temas como "Demdike" o "Black Invocation" de riffs muy buenos y que en esencia son un claro ejemplo de como debe de sonar un álbum de estas características. (8).


1. Bastard of Hades 02:36
The fall of the cross brings the new age of hell 
The temples are burned to the ground 
Slaves to the darkness and under my spell 
Satan's perversion unbound 

Armageddon coming closer 
Children howl at the night 
Degradation and slaughter 
Total mayhem with satanic might 

I am the goat 
I am the Antichrist 
I am unholy - tormenting the night 

Inverting the cross 
Bringing disease 
The master of hell 
The bastard of hades... 

Will strike down the pious with wicked delight 
Drinking the blood of the pure 
Virgins defiled as they beg for their life 
Eternal infernal war 

Armageddon coming closer 
Children howl at the night 
Degradation and slaughter 
Total mayhem with satanic might 

I am the goat 
I am the Antichrist 
I am unholy - tormenting the night 

Inverting the cross 
Bringing disease 
The master of hell 
The bastard of hades will strik
2. Anneliese 03:54
  Convulsions breed terror 
The manifestation made clear 
Malformations bring tremors 
Bestial outburst severe 

Tearing the crown of roses 
From the claws of the priest 
Delusional diagnosis 
A victim in the hands of the beast 

Out from the fires of hell 
6 demons enter the physical world 
Possessed by the creatures below 
Decrepit, feeble and hollow 

Anneliese Michel – A vessel where the demons dwell 
Anneliese Michel – A portal to the underworld 

Submit to the darkness within 

Hallucinations of horror 
Seven crowns and seven horns 
An Exhibition of torture 
A fragile object of scorn 

A martyr for the sinners 
Enduring endless torment and pain 
Never truly delivered 
The mind of the girl is drained 

Out from the fires of hell 
6 demons enter the physical world 
Possessed by the creatures below 
Decrepit, feeble and hollow 

Anneliese Michel – A vessel where the demons dwell 
Anneliese Michel – A portal to the underworld 

Submit to the darkness within 

Let her burn!
3. Demdike (In League with the Devil) 03:30
   “Jesus, save my child, for I bare the mark 
The black spirit shadows my presence and wanders the dark 
I will have my vengeance, you will die in pain 
Iniquitous, black magick practice - subjugation as your soul withers away” 

Demdike 
In league with the Devil 

“Jesus, save my child, I am one with the beast 
I am bound to the fire and I will not be released” 
Your perilous future will be written in clay 
Sinister, blasphemous witchcraft – debilitating as your soul withers away” 

Demdike 
In league with the Devil 
Whore - Bastard - Evil 
In league with the Devil 

Demdike 
In league with the Devil 
Whore - Bastard - Evil 
In league with the Devil
4. Within the Everlasting Hellfire 02:54  
Summoning... 

We summon forth our master, our saviour 
Baptise us in the name of the goat 
We bring you the newborn, the sweet sinful blood 
And we drink the life straight from its throat 

Dance – Around the circle of... 
Fire – Sign Lucifer's pact 
Chant – The words of black magick spell 
Cast down – into the everlasting flame 

You are bound 
To remain within the everlasting hellfire 

Cast down 

We submit ourselves to the darkness 
Eternal adoration of the beast 
Carving diabolic sigils 
The devil's receipt 

We kneel before the altar of Satan 
Let us ascend towards the sky 
Seven spirits gathered here in carnal desire 
We trample the cross we deny 

Dance – Around the circle of... 
Fire – Sign Lucifer's pact 
Chant – The words of black magick spell 
Cast down – into the everlasting flame 

You are bound 
To remain within the everlasting hellfire
5. From Hell 02:58
I am the mutilator I'll cut the bitch and watch her die Surreptitious desecrater Run for your life The mist it hides my presence Through darkened streets I stalk Though they feel my omnipresence They howl in shock Feel the steel Pierce your flesh Taste the blade As I incise Screams of pain Fill the air Helpless victim Paralysed From Hell Bound for humiliation I'll drain the bitch with frantic lust Perverted fascination Draped in disgust “I send you half the kidne” This simple act depraved A vile beast within me Born to degrade Feel the steel Pierce your flesh Taste the blade As I incise Screams of pain Fill the air Helpless victim Paralysed From Hell Catch me when you can! Feel the steel Pierce your flesh Taste the blade As I incise Screams of pain Fill the air Helpless victim Paralysed From Hell I am the ripper ...From Hell 
6. Black Invocation 02:06
  They gather round the pentagram with fire in their eyes
Mesmerised by cryptic flame, conjuring their demise
Clandestine ritual of foul, arcane blasphemies
Blood is spilled, the chants commence the evil sorcery

Black Invocation

Ancient spirits, blackened spectres rise up from the flame
The Lord of darkness, dominant as the disciples cry his name
One by one, each child drained and cast down below
To dance among the cults of Hades, slaves forever more

Black Invocation
7. Conduit Closing 03:33
 I bleed before the congregation as I devour the light
The winds of hades worsen as the spectres prepare for their flight
Evil – The nefarious triumph of death
Demons rise from the depths

Death for possession
This deadly obsession
This unholy sermon impure

Infernal legions
They shatter and weaken
Their lecherous ills I endure

Morbid deception
This foul perception
From beyond the kingdoms of sin

Decrepit vessel
In league with the devil
Malevolent spectres within

Conduit closing

I suffer lacerations as this sermon opens gateways obscure
I bathe in the echoes of spirits that I have conjured
Evil – The nefarious triumph of death
Demons rise from the depths

Death for possession
This deadly obsession
This unholy sermon impure

Infernal legions
They shatter and weaken
Their lecherous ills I endure

Morbid deception
This foul perception
From beyond the kingdoms of sin

Decrepit vessel
In league with the devil
Malevolent spectres within

Conduit closing

I bleed before the congregation as I devour the light
The winds of hades worsen as the spectres prepare for their flight
Evil – The nefarious triumph of death
Demons rise from the depths

Death for possession
This deadly obsession
This unholy sermon impure

Infernal legions
They shatter and weaken
Their lecherous ills I endure

Morbid deception
This foul perception
From beyond the kingdoms of sin

Decrepit vessel
In league with the devil
Malevolent spectres within

Conduit closed
8. Coagulating Darkness 05:05
   Surrender unto me you mortals, mist will devour the light
Capitulate in the terror of the maelstrom, into eternal night
Hypnotised by the bells of hades, armies march on to torment
Hellhounds shrieking and death cults rising, apostles begin to ascend

Whipped by the forked tongue of Lucifer
Disciples of the beast embrace the coagulating dark

Temples have fallen, bodies are rotting, the frail and the weak have been slain
A monument to the triumph of darkness, a pillar to the conquest of pain
Desecrate with the aim to conquer, legions unleash their commands
Bringing darkness and force-fed terror, there's no repentance for the damned

Whipped by the forked tongue of Lucifer
Disciples of the beast embrace the coagulating dark

Rise – blackened spectres
Kill – The non-believers
Swallowed by the infernal flame

March – Satan's soldiers
Gaze – Into the abyss
The birth of the new infernal...

Reign – of total terror
Feast – of morbid pleasure
Bringer of the blackest domain

Burn – the holy scripture
Hold – The Unhallowed sceptre
The birth of the new infernal reign

Surrender unto me you mortals, mist will devour the light
Capitulate in the terror of the maelstrom, into eternal night

Whipped by the forked tongue of Lucifer
Disciples of the beast embrace...

The coagulating dark

MANDRAGORA MALEVOLA

AWAKENING THE IMPVRE (2017)
Año y medio después de su primera demo, los portugueses Mandragora Malevola regresan con un álbum completo en toda regla. Si bien en la demo dejaban plasmaban un sonido más cercano al death-black, en este tiempo se ha producido una evolución clara en la banda quelos acerca más hacia el black metal con tintes sinfónicos a veces, otras más melódicos y con una ambientación bastante oscura resultando por momentos también ritualista. Todo esto no sería posible sin una apuesta clara por una mejor producción que ha permitido que la banda pueda llegar a nuevos registros sin alterar la calidad del producto final. Siempre con un enfoque en donde se mezclan elementos ocultistas y antireligiosos y apoyándose en unos buenos y completos riffs de guitarras, el álbum resulta convincente. Siguen estando presentes algunos medios tiempos pero la presencia del doble bombo ha decrecido un tanto para ceder protagonismo a las guitarras y a una ambientación más sinfónica si cabe, dando como resultado unos temas más directos, con cierta épica en algunas partes. Las voces ya no se muestran tan guturales sino que optan por partes más agresivas con bastantes matices. Si con su primera demo, crearon ciertas expectativas, la edición de su primer larga duración las ha superado. (8,2).

PENDULUM (2017)
Primera demo para esta banda madrileña que se comenzó a gestar hace casi una década y que por fin ha visto editado su trabajo. "Pendulum" consta de tres temas, siendo el tema inicial una breve intro y llevando el grueso de la música sus otros dos temas de duración considerable. Nos encontramos con una música densa y casi que obsesiva, repleta de capas de oscuridad y con una atmósfera oscura no exenta de cierta melancolía. En los dos temas que de la demo, se ofrece una música cargada y oscura en donde el oyente se adentra en la oscuridad de la propuesta de forma muy densa, casi que agobiante, recreando, gracias a la extensión de las composiciones una atmósfera que en diferentes capas siempre tienden haca la melancolía, oscuridad, muerte y desesperación. Con una fuerte presencia de la instrumentación oscura, densa y ambiental con un aporte de las voces de manera casi que cadavérica, ritualista y oscura. Primera toma de contacto de manera bastante aceptable dentro del black atmosférico más oscuro. (8).

UNDER THE SIGN OF LEO PART 1 (2017)
Siguiendo el comino marcado por sus dos anteriores obras, Kyryem nos entrega ya su tercer larga duración, una obra más pretenciosa seguro que sus anteriores trabajos y podemos decir que cumple a la perfección su cometido. Ni que decir tiene que todo lo que rodea a esta banda se intenta mantener en el mayor anonimato posible, poca información podemos sacar sobre ellos, así que no nos queda otra que centrarnos en su música. "Under The Sign of Leo, part I" es un ejercicio extenso de metal con diferentes influencias que pasan desde luego por le black y el death pero que sin lugar a dudas tiene también influencias de sonidos industriales y del rock y el thrash más clásico, presentes estés últimos en unos riffs que hacen sus aparición en diferentes momentos y que enriquecen la propuesta. Estamos ante un álbum denso, que se sumerge en lugares próximos a la demencia y a la locura, repleto de buenos momentos, lleno de intensidad y que sin lugar a dudas no dejará indiferente al oyente. Como comentaba antes las influencias son variadas y bien plasmadas, sin lugar a dudas la base es death-black con algo de industrial, pero también es cierto que la atmósfera y los arreglos nos arrastran a sonidos más rock, no ya sólo en el apartado instrumental, muy presente en cuanto a riffs, sino que en el apartado vocal también asistimos a variedad de registros que varían entre la intensidad en ciertos apartadas a otros más emotivos. Estamos sin lugar a dudas ante una obra complicada de encuadrar bajo sólo una etiqueta, que sorprende en cuanto a variedad de registros y que se antoja casi que necesaria. (8).

BELENOS - INTERVIEW


1. Belenos was born in 1995, throughout his career has had different members but always you, Loïc Cellier, has remained as the fundamental axis on which has turned the future of the band, from the beginning of Belenos you were clear that it would be A one man band? And why should the incorporation of new members in some moments of the history of the band and its subsequent departure, is for reasons of recording a new album or pos the possibility of being able to offer live concerts?
Well, that's right, one has to consider Belenos as a "one man band" entity since the beginning, I have had, I still have live members but who don't really take part to Belenos except on stage. The only real band period was between 1998 to 2004, but working alone is better for me, easier, more rapid and stressless

2.The region from where you come is Brittany, region where Celtic influence is very marked and that surely has served as inspiration to create Belenos, we can say that there is a direct link between the cultural identity of the zone where you Was born and the creation of Belenos, as a way to capture the whole history of their region?
In fact I'm born in the north of france and until 2004 I was living over there, since 2004 I live in Brittany (the western region of france and the only one which has strong celtic traditions), It's obvious that now it helps me a lot to get more inspiration for the last albums (legends, language...)

3.Unlike other bands of black metal, Belenos texts focus on the historical and real part of events, regardless of esoteric or fantastic elements, how do you choose the themes to be treated in the Belenos albums and what is their main source of inspiration?
Yes, I don't want to focus on the regular themes used in black metal such as destroying christianity and so on; the "pagan" touch within Belenso is above all present in the choice of the themes, thus I often speak about nature or sometimes history (real events like on Chants de bataille or celtic legends) Inspiration can come from certain epic films or historical books.

4.We can not forget that thanks to their work compiling historical data, we can almost say that each album of Belenos is like a conceptual album that narrates some significant historical fact, to which the texts of his last album "Kornôg" refer and why Consider them appropriate for a Belenos album?
Some of the Belenos albums are indeed conceptual with a precise theme, it's the case for "Chants de bataille" dealing with real war rituals for the Gallic tribes in the Antiquity, "Chemins de souffrance" which talk about lonely and mournful journeys in winter, and of course "Kornog" which gathers local legends of the sea...the other albums have different themes in each song and later a theme's song can be developped in a full album if I feel there's enough matter to talk about.

5.Following in the line of bands with a black sound influenced by Celtic culture and thematic, perhaps, the most representative band is Primordial, what other bands, in your point of view, are interesting and are a direct influence for you?
There can be some common points however I don't really know their works enough, my better influences were certainly what I was listening to and appreciating in the 90's: the first offerings of Enslaved, Burzum, Emperor and later perhaps Immortal, Belphegor, Dark Funeral, Windir

6."Kornôg" is his recent work, an album that comes after a silence period of about six years, in which he has used all this time? Was it difficult to re-compose music for a new album? The sound of Belenos over these years?
Six years after "Yen sonn gardis" is definitely too long but I had no choice, I was extremely busy with my private life, we did a lot of concerts (average of 10 per year) which need a lot of time too and the new songs of Kornog were difficult to finish and to improve, the recording was extremely long and difficult too, all that facts explain this delay !

7.Although Belenos is their main band today, in the past and also in recent times has been part of other projects such as Asyndess, Beer Vomit, Bereavement, Excavation, Nydvind, Despair's Tiny Things or Artesia, bands linked to the extreme metal But not completely linked to black, Why today no longer figure in these projects, perhaps because of lack of time or issues of musical affinity?
It was often to help friends when I had some free time, the other solo projects Asyndess or Excavation don't exist for a very long time !

8.There are many bands that deny the possibility of being able to offer live shows, and much more in the case of the one man band, however although you manage to be able to record all the instruments in the studio albums, it is also true that Has managed to gather a group of musicians to be able to offer concerts, how important is it for you the possibility of being able to offer a concert, its live music and the contact with the followers of Belenos?
I don't like playing live so much because it demands tons of work and time to prepare, travelling and it's extremely difficult to earn money; this year of 2017 will be quiet due to several reasons of organisation. Today there are so much bands that we must keep a minimum of live presence otherwise our notoriety would decrease

9.I suppose that the region from which you proceed also must be an important influence to find inspiration when composing music for Belenos, what Celtic elements next to where you live, would recommend visiting and discovering?
Here I like culture, language: the Breton which has nothing to deal with French, it looks like to what is spoken in the celtic regions of great britain (isle of man, cornwalls, wales), architecture: a lot of castles built in stones, medieval houses (I own one), and traditionnal music which is very similar to what we can hear in Ireland and Scottland and a lot of other things: local food and alcools. In other words, one has the impression not to live in France but rather in the west parts of England. On top of the castles and the awesome costline, Brittany is known to have the biggest concentration of primitive rised stones in the world, one of my favourite place is the forest of Huelgoat, very dark and wet with gigantic stone chaos, caves and water falls.

10.Belenos was born in 1995, a time when the French black metal in its most underground slope was in full swing, what memories do you have of this early age of Belenos? Did you ever feel part of this movement?
No, not really, at the time I was not aware of what french underground scene exactly was, because my view of it depended on what I read in the fanzines, internet didn't exist, and Belenos has never been a real black metal band hailing Satan with torches and war paints

11.He has recently reissued his first three demos in tape format through the Casern Bitch Productions label. Why did you choose this record label and, above all, what led you to choose the tape format for the reissue?
This idea was not mine, I just said "okay let's do it" to the guy behind this label which proposed me this interesting project.

12.For the "Kornôg" edition, Northern Silence Productions is back in the same vein as it was with their previous "Yen Sonn Gardis", how is their relationship with the label? Satisfied with the work done in terms of promotion and distribution by Of Northern Silence Productions? Do you have in mind to offer "Kornôg" in another format such as tape or vinyl?
Belenos works with Northern silence for 10 years now, I'm satisfied with them ! Perhaps a vinyl could be done later, even on another label like Forgotten wisdom, but no tape I think.

13.Just started this 2017, what future plans for this year has for Belenos?
Well, in may we will play in two festivals: les feux de beltane fest in Brittany and the Darktroll fest in Germany, at the same time will be reissued the last long sold out album "Chants de bataille" (sound and artwork improved, 5 bonus tracks, limited A5 digipack format and regular CD)
Due to personal reasons we won't play much concerts for this year, but I will focus on the next album which is already written at 66.6% ! Meaning that this new album should be out quickly, I hope it could be out around summer 2018...

Thank you very much for taking the time to Black Metal Spirit, if you want to add something for the followers of Belenos, this is the place. I hope the questions are to your liking.
thanks a lot, for more informations, merchandising sells, there's just one place: www.belenos.biz

BICEPHALOUS


Nueva banda que hacen su aparición en la escena black metalera desde el Pais Vasco. Recientemente acaban de editar "Destined for Misanthropy" en formato cd y que contiene cuatro temas que conforman su primer Ep. Estos cuatro temas se mueven por terrenos de un black metal denso, por momento caótico y apocalíptico sin perder de vista un cierto tono de crudeza. Base Record Production se ha encargado de la edición del Ep y en la página de facebook de la banda, a parte de poder haceros con una copia, también tenéis cumplida información sobre la banda.
