Dødsmaskin :: Fullstendig Brent (Malignant)

Fullstending Brent is a very sinister, scary and haunting cinematic black and doom ambient release that will easily seduce most demanding fans of the genre. To be placed next to infernal and massive power electronic releases by Megaptera or Brither Death Now.

Hailing from Norway this project is totally new for me. Thematically the album deals with historical facts and interpretation around witchcraft’s belief system and its more than problematic reception in the 17th history of Norway. The thematic choice and its related aesthetics, then atheological references and fancy for the black magic, necromancy, physical rituals are relatively widespread in the world of dark ambient music and more generally in the post-industrial scene (Aghast, Archon Satani, Mz.412, Coph Nia et al).

Fullstendig Brent was been written by Peter Vindel and Kjetil Ottersen, and is mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri. In itself, the music presents a hybrid of styles, from industrial ambient to doomscape and harsh noise drone electronica. The result delivers a singular and hell-ish post-apocalyptical soundtrack with a tremendously dark and discordant facet. The soundscapes incorporate blasting industrial field recordings, amplified and sustained by catacombesque low frequencies, atonal clusters and other bleak sounding textures. “Baldom” is a super minimalist and poignant darkened piece followed by more bleak electronic assaults sometimes punctuated by creeped-out found sounds as in “Christoffer Orning.”

Fullstending Brent is a very sinister, scary and haunting cinematic black and doom ambient release that will easily seduce most demanding fans of the genre. To be placed next to infernal and massive power electronic releases by Megaptera or Brither Death Now. A welcomed addition to Malignant’s wide catalog in uncompromising dark and experimental music.

Fullstendig Brent is available on Malignant.
