Dunkelgrafen - Im Schatten der Ewigkeit

(Old S RProzak review)
1999 $14.00 [BUY]
Review: A potent vision of textured death metal riffing and black metal architecture, this enduringly resonant artistic vision reforms dark metal into an expression of emptiness. Thudding deconstruction of melody into raw chaos and artistic building tension in twisted riffs drives the lush sound of guitar and keyboard. Sensually overdistorted awkward vocals accompany longer verses. Violence in melodic riffing encourages the minimalist appeal older black metal bands once had. A rough but qualified sense of art is what distinguishes this release in raw creativity.
Production: Loud but poor drum sound, otherwise decent small studio.
