cosmic black metal from Scottland
An exploration and observation of the void between light and dark, existence and non-existence, alignment and misalignment, the material and immaterial planes. Like the astronomer of old, seeking to yield understanding from the chaos of the cold vastness of the abyss as articulated through mortal fallibility.
It’s an inward journey to the outer reaches of consciousness through the disintegrating mind. An odyssey of resolve and realisation recited as a consciousness stream of quixotic madness and transcendence. Witness the ravings of an enlightened misanthrope rejecting the prison of flesh, renouncing the burden of existence, and meting final judgement upon humanity. An ascension from the quotidian patterns of banal mortality. A proclamation and declamation of the human experience. A rejection of being in favour of true oblivion.

GESPENST “den sidste færd” LP/CD
danish black metal
Gespenst create an otherworldly atmosphere by fusing scandinavian black metal with funeral doom and touches of dark ambient, loaded with tension from start to finish.
They display a sure hand in crafting sweeping, immersive melodies that are full of pain and bereavement, leavening them with eerie (and beautiful) melodic touches that add an air of mysticism to the all-too-human sensations of emotional collapse.
These dissonant dirges climb to such heights of intense feeling that they frequently become majestic in their gloom, while the corrosive vocals and eruptions of blasting savagery from the shadows carve a twisted path through the surrounding pall of death and depravity.
Gespenst are dark and powerful spellcasters of a high order. Lose yourself in what they have wrought below.
