HOLLOW VOID (2022)
Cuarto álbum de estudio para los franceses, un trabajo que llega casi diez años después de su último lanzamiento, seguramente fruto de la participación de sus miembros en otras bandas como IXXI, Temple of Baal o Vorkreist, entre otras, sin que eso si, se haya resentido el resultado final del sonido del álbum. Un álbum que desde el inicio se muestra directo, denso y oscuro, repleto de secciones capaces de desprender tanto, odio, como rabia o desprecio. Para ello Hell Militia se ha empleado a fondo en un apartado como el de las guitarras en donde podemos encontrar cierta dualidad en su sonido, una empleándose en una faceta más rápida, densa y directa, mientras que cuando la segundo guitarra entra en escena lo hace con una propuesta más puramente black, con características que se pueden encasillar dentro de la crudeza, aportando un tono melódico a la propuesta y sabiendo ofrecer también una ambientación mucho más sombría al conjunto. La batería en ningún momento pierde el pulso, en una apuesta hacia un ritmo alto y también violento, aunque en secciones también aborda terrenos mucho más lentos, contribuyendo a aportar otras texturas a la propuesta, texturas que van desde un sonido más elaborado por momentos, trabajando mucha más las atmósferas y que van salpicando el álbum de forma arbitraria, sorprendiendo al oyente y contribuyendo a un sonido mucho más rico, alejándolo de los estándares del black/death. Estándares que se vuelven a repetir si prestamos atención a las voces, con secciones viscerales, oscuras y agresivas, pero que también saben explorar otros terrenos, bajando la intensidad y queriendo abrazar estructuras más accesibles, sin que por ello pongan en entredicho la carga de oscuridad de la que hacen gala desde el inicio. Un álbum, en definitiva, que encierra y ofrece un sonido correcto dentro del black/death, pero que sabe también ofrecer una buena dosis de elementos que muchas veces los sitúan con un sonido cercano al black más puro. (8,4).




1. Lifeless Light 04:21
And the call of death resonates In the abyss Succumb to the void, The light to consume all lights The imminent decay, Rising above this pile of flesh The lifeless cold engraves on the face of man So let a thousand knives slit A thousand throats And on the threshold of The final day So let a thousand plagues last A thousand years As we dim the lights of A thousand worlds Lifeless light of the void, Shining like a dead star Lifeless light of the void Shining... Lifeless light of the void, Shining like a dead star Lifeless light of the void Shining...  
2. Genesis Undone 04:22
  And all that was bleak and cold
And all that was laid to waste
A lifeless symbol among the ruins
Genesis undone

As ashes came falling from the sky
So came radiation from below

As thrones turned to dust on
The lifeless planes
As ruins crumbled and voices silenced

A dead light to light a dead age
Contamination fueling the puppets

As plague amongst tribes
Glorious days of wrath
That which you held highest
Brought you down to the fall
The air now suffocates
Our idols turned to dust
A hopeless monument
Standing amongst the ruins

And all that was bleak and cold
And all that was laid to waste
A lifeless symbol among the ruins
Genesis undone
3. Dust of Time 05:47
From the rotten pool of origin I raise as hope fell to the ground Staring at God's chosen creation Crawling around like maggots As parasites that need a host Like junkies that need a fix While rats will eat each other To undo the creation Oblivion - A thousand bitter days While the dust of time heals nothing Oblivion - Fucked in this trap We can't escape this spiral I am the wounds that scarred you I will be your eyes to see decay I am the mouth through which you speak The unclean prayers that end it all Oblivion - A thousand bitter days While the dust of time heals nothing Oblivion - Fucked in this trap We can't escape this spiral The dust of time heals nothing We're fucked in this trap   
4. Within the Maze 04:09
Trapped within the maze of their times Under the sign of a broken cycle At the end of the day It is always the same Forever fighting an uphill battle Lost chances, lost hope, lost sight Buried under dust, guilt and shame Painted layers over dirt Our gods are forgotten Promises turn to ruins Our empires turn to ruins Forever fighting for a futile cause Lost chances, lost hope, lost sight...  
5. Hollow Void 04:57
 The hollow void -
A new light is shining
A cloud of pestilence to blind the skies
Filling space where no light reaches in and
Cursed are the fruits of the earth

The hollow void
A maze without end

There is no escaping this maze
You created your own path to the fall
There is no getting out of the spiral
There is no chance to break the chains

The hollow void
A maze without end

Each step another mistake
Each rise a new fall
Every breath another waste
A monument to your failures
I will be your eyes to see despair
Puncture your ears to reach within
I will let you face your misery
As a living, breathing monument
6. The Highest Fall 05:18
   Looking for salvation in
The lowest of lights
Ascending to the skies to
Reach the highest fall

Bitter and disgusted we look
At this world
Until it all disappears
Into nothingness

Crawling - alive like worms
Drowning - in rivers of decay

I rise from the stench
Disgusted by this mass of flesh

Crawling - alive like worms
Drowning - in rivers of decay

A scorched lungs prayer
A veneration of pestilence
7. Kingdoms Scorched 04:54
   Cast into the pit of horrors -
No solace for the wretched
Your wounds will not be healed -
Passivity rendered you to ash

Blood and bile come from your torso -
Your limbs are torn
your impotent God failed you -
Your Eden laid to waste

Look at your kingdoms scorched
Look at the flames!
Witness your kingdoms scorched
Witness the fall!

There is no solace for the wretched
There is only damnation

Pure in filth!
A new light is shining
This is the sphere of sacrifice
Sanity leaves in
The blink of an eye
Now is the next aeon,
Now is chaos

There is no solace for the wretched
There is only damnation
8. Veneration 04:39
And shadows filled the vast abyss A hollow monument of your failures You happily swallowed the bile And clawed your way up to reach the fall A veneration - spirits of plagues A shadow over fields of despair Drowning in a river of decay you happily swallowed it all Floating around in ecstasy Consumed your way down to the fall There was nothing left for you There was no one left for you There was nothing left to strive for There is only the black hole A veneration - spirits of plagues A shadow over fields of despair  
9. Corruption Rejoice 05:50
 Let us rejoice int eh corruption of the earth
Burning under the golden wings of death
Cleanse me now and drown my lungs
Stab me and remove the putrid flesh
For I amt eh rot of the world
The mirror image you won't see
Shining in filth and light
Created in the image of man

Burn in me, treacherous God
Corrupt the seed and shine your light
Burn in me, treacherous God
Corrupting the seeds and sons of light

Undone! all the miracles
Of the world undone!
The heights to which we rose
The negative pulse of worthless night
Corrupting the seeds and sons of light

For I am the rot of the world
The mirror image you wont' see
Shining in filth and light
Created in the image of man
Rejoice in corruption
Rejoice! Rejoice!
