|Interview with Frater E. emphasizing on his work for De Vermis Mysteriis, but also explaining a lot about the O.O.A. and its projects:
We also decided to make somekind of "blog" so people can keep up with our creations:
Two reviews for the split between Morkenatten and De Vermis Mysteriis, "Ayin Harsha".
On metal archives:
Morkenatten/De Vermis Mysteriis - Ayin Harsha
(Translation approved by the original reviewer, Bart Alfvoet)
I discover the Belgian raw black metal collective Ordo Omegae Absolutae for the first time in the form of this split. The cover reminds me of the artwork of some Crepúsculo Negro-bands, which makes me rather excited.
First De Vermis Mysteriis. Four songs, draped in a lo-fi sound, yet musically more developed than one would expect at first. After the ceremonial dungeon-intro a screechy Finnish demo-sound appears wherein truly demonic and possessed vocals become one with menacing ramming sessions and Dissection-melodies, which are easily recognisable, even in this particular sound setting. Because of the mid-tempo parts and lingering transitions I even get an orthodox BM feeling, although the screechy old school black metal-vibe is still amply dominant.
Morkenatten finishes this split with at least as much raw Finnish-sounding black. Here there even are Arckanum/Horna-vibes in the bass- and guitar-lines and a typical Finnish chaos emerges, which can be considered as sloppy, but also as the creation of an occult atmosphere. Morkenatten is something which will mostly appeal to the more woozy ones among us. Just like De Vermis Mysteriis Morkenatten is an interesting introduction in this black metal collective, I'm curious to what will follow after this release.
“The basis of all true cosmic horror is violation of the order of nature, and the profoundest violations are always the least concrete and describable.”
