Symphonia Corrumptor
[Netherlands | 2002 | Macabre Operetta Productions]


Debut EP, Limited to 100 copies. I've often seen this band dubbed as Black Metal but I personally don't see it, other than the typical corpsepaint-clad angsty teenagers. Very dark experimental noise made with pounding percussion, unique sounding guitars and occasionally some messed up extra-terrestrial vocals. It's hard to call these compositions songs really, it's like all the instruments are being bashed :P I do like it though.

Tracklisting:
1 Symphonia Corrumptor (8:10)
2 Monumentum Apocalypse (7:39)

Opus Diaboli
[Netherlands | 2005 | Self Released]


Shifting away from the noisy-ish style of Symphonia Corrumptor to a more ritual-ambient style here. The slow monotonous pounding of drums with droning dark ambience teamed with some gregorian-esque chants makes this a pretty good listen.

Tracklisting:
1. Terribilis Est Locus Iste (00:38)
2. In Flagrante Delicto (02:46)
3. Et In Arcadia Ego (03:27)
4. Sanguis Diabolicum (04:38)
5. Natalis Invictus Mors (00:59)
6. Maleficae A Daemonibus Docetur (03:59)
7. De Vermiis Perditoris (04:50)
8. Igneo Et Sanguines Rubore Fuisse (04:11)
9. Aquae Tenebrae (05:08)

Download


Pestis Laudes Praedicare
[Netherlands | 2005 | Self Released]


Shifting slightly towards more traditional Black Metal here, although very slow in tempo.

Tracklisting:
1. Cecedit De Coelo Stella Magna (05:28)
2. Obscurates Est Sol Et Aer (08:10)
3. Pestis Laudes Praedicare (06:07)

Judex Ergo Cum Sedebit Quidquid Latet Apperebit Nil Invultum Remanebit
[Netherlands | 2005 | Satanic Propaganda Records]


Well, this release seems to have a bit of everything! Although only one track, it shifts from noisy Black Metal into a brief ambient guitar passage, followed by a fuzzy guitar drone with the odd scream over the top. Then finished off with some militaristic drumming.

Tracklisting:
1. Judex Ergo Cum Sedebit Quidquid Latet Apperebit Nil Invultum Remanebit (41:46)

Download


In Umbra Spectare Magnificentia Tuus Et Obedientia Me Pronuntiam
[Netherlands | 2006 | Satanic Propaganda Records]


Deep droning ambient on this one, coupled with the occasional tortured scream ;D

Tracklisting:
1. In Umbra Spectare Magnificentia Tuus Et Obedientia Me Pronuntiam (43:04)

Download


Odium Irae Involumentum Me, Te Conscientiae Stimulant Maleficiorum
[Netherlands | 2005 | Self Released]


This release is MUCH more noisy, using some very extorted guitars, harsh vocals and crashing rhythms. Although being a little alternative to what your usual noise, this is worth trying out.

Tracklisting:
1. Odium Irae Involumentum Me, Te Conscientiae Stimulant Maleficiorum (36:47)

Download


Dum Veneris Judicare In Saedulum Per Ignem
[Netherlands | 2006 | Self Released]


Their harshest and finest release, I think this is a Black Metal band playing but having everything turned up to the max, so it ends up being a noisy, aural assault.

Tracklisting:
1. Dum Veneris Judicare In Saedulum Per Ignem (41:52)

Download
