The feedback has been nothing but excellent, well deseved mind you.

Quote:
So kurz vor dem Weltuntergang erlebt der Black Metal noch einmal schwindelerregende Höhenflüge, welche man diesem todgeweihten Genre gar nicht mehr zugetraut hätte.
Nachdem in Nidaros unter den Vorzeichen ernsthaft praktizierten Okkultismus eine erstaunliche Hexerei nach der anderen stattfindet, und insbesondere mit dem neuen Album von DØDSENGEL ein neuer Meilenstein in der Entwicklung des Black Metal aufgestellt wurde, erfasst diese mächtige Reconquista der Szene jetzt auch die Nachbarländer der Nordlichter.
 
In Island, diesem kargen Felsen im arktischen Meer, schickt sich mit SVARTIDAUDI eine weitere Band an, mit finsterer Zauberei den Genre-Thron zu erobern. An ihrem Beispiel sieht man wieder einmal, dass sich harte Arbeit und unablässiges Proben im Black Metal sehr wohl bezahlt machen. Anstatt irgendein halbgares Debütalbum auf den Markt zu werfen, haben die vier Schwarzmaler aus Reykjavík seit ihrer Bandgründung 2002 drei Demos und eine Split-EP aufgenommen, bevor sie sich nun mit „Flesh Cathedral“ ein tonnenschweres Monument aus Schwarzmetall errichtet haben. Ein Monument, welches auch noch in tausenden Kilometern Entfernung, auf der anderen Seite der Erde, sicht- und vor allem hörbar sein wird!
 
Wer die vertonten Schwarzen Messen aus Nidaros kennt, der ahnt schon was ihn in der Kathedrale des Fleisches erwartet. Extremer, atmosphärisch dichter und kompositorisch komplexer, Black Metal der – jedenfalls im Augenblick der Gegenwart! – seinesgleichen sucht. Vier überlange Lieder mit enormen Wiederspielwert und Suchtpotential, die von der ersten bis zur letzten Minute überzeugen und fesseln können. Sei es im ersten Lied „Sterile Seeds“, welches von bedrohlich brodelnden Bass und schmerzverzerrten Riffs angetrieben wird; oder das pfeilschnelle „The Perpetual Nothing“; oder das bedrückende, unheilvolle Titellied; oder schließlich „Psychoactive Sacraments“, das mit phasenweise geradezu meditativer Intonierung zum Abschied aus dieser Welt auffordert: In jeder Sekunde und in jeder Facette dieses monumentalen Meisterwerkes zelebrieren SVARTEDAUDI den Black Metal auf eine Weise, wie es nur wahre Adepten der Schwarzen Künste zu tun verstehen.
 
Die Produktion ist absolut erstklassig; jedes Instrument kommt sauber zum Vorschein, die röchelnde Stimme von Sturla Viðar windet sich schlangengleich durch die kakophonen Melodien, und der Klang ist fett und druckvoll. Die visuelle Gestaltung steht dem in nichts nach, und unterstreicht geradezu perfekt die „epic journey through labyrinthine nightmares and hallucinogenic initiation“, wie das Album vom ausführenden Produzenten treffend beschrieben wird. SVARTEDAUDI schaffen das erstaunliche Kunststück, den Black Metal auch im Jahr 2012 so faszinierend, so mysteriös und so ernsthaft erscheinen zu lassen wie man es schon seit vielen Jahren nicht mehr erlebt hat. Geradezu bezeichnend, dass den Isländern dieses Kunststück abseits des „Metal-Mainstreams“ und ohne „Vitamin-B“ bei irgendwelchen auflagenstarken Zeitschriften oder kommerziellen Werbeagenturen gelungen ist. Reife Leistung, Spitzenalbum, und Kaufempfehlung! (VV)

"You have less probabilities of survival at the blackest of funerals: Svartidauði from Iceland joined New Zealand's DIOCLETIAN & Germany's Nuclear Magick on the War Over Berlin 2012, for the next bombing raids on Sunday May 20th from 9PM at the Slaughterhouse!"

If you don't like the song we uploaded, you should stay away from this one. It represents the whole album very well.
Their previous efforts has been a bit more "dirty"-sounding than Flesh Cathedral, but their sound is pretty recognizable.


Cheers for the feedback! I'm not trying to piss on the parade or anything, just offering my humble opinion. I think maybe just hearing this band for the first time I've lost some perspective. I'll look into older releases and work my way up. I might end up eating my words Laughing

Sounds great as expected. Relentless and morbid at the same time and goes without saying that i'll pick this one up when released...

Their gig in Berlin tonight was awesome, the sound was nearly perfect too. (on a sidenote: Nuclear Magick didn't give me much this time, Diocletian were crushing) Audience size was once again embarassing for this town, to say the least.

A pity I was out of town or else I would have been there. For a band like them, playing indoor, and at a not-too-big venue at that, would surely deliver another experience than playing outdoor and in bright daylight too...
