accursedamygdala Refreshing and breathtaking, a good overall replacement for coffee in the morning. I'll go ahead and say it, do yourself a favor and buy the best album to come out of Black Metal this year! Favorite track: Deafening Wailing Of The Desperate Ones.

Christøph Trvm This is simply brillant Black Metal, far away from stereotypes and show effects. Awesome musicanship, challenging songwriting and a dense atmosphere makes Relatos De Angustia to one of this years finest Black Metal albums. Favorite track: The Weight Of Breathing.

Ippocalyptica This, one of 2020’s absolute best black metal albums, must not be overlooked. While it is easy to point out influences from the likes of Deathspell Omega, certain Icelandic bands (Zhrine and newer Svartidaudi), and Mgla, SELBST has created a powerful testament that is distinctly its own. Relatively less dissonant than most peers, the atmosphere here is one of aggressive struggle and majestic triumph. With stunning guitar work and spellbinding songwriting, Relatos De Angustia is a winner. Favorite track: The Depths Of Selfishness.

about

Debemur Morti Productions proudly present ‘Relatos De Angustia’ (‘Stories Of Anguish’), the immense second full-length from SELBST which finds the band realising their potential in definitive style.

Conceived 2010 in Venezuela and now operating from Chile, SELBST embody the vision of multi-instrumentalist/vocalist/composer/lyricist ‘N’ to bring about the “maximum realisation of the Being” through an alignment of strident power and wild, untrammelled fervour that reveals its true majesty upon repeat listening.

There is a uniquely self-possessed otherness to SELBST’s take on crushingly immersive Black Metal - encompassing as it does contemporary French and Icelandic strains of transcendent dissonance, hammer-blows subsumed from the mid ‘90s Norwegian canon, the alienated textures of DSBM and the belligerent singularity of the Polish hordes tempered on occasion with melodic sensibilities akin to top-tier post-Black Metal.

Above all, this is a record that exploits its spacious production to revel in guitar-work of the highest order: utilising a crystalline, vicious and palpable tone which bleeds and breaks in all the right places, almost through-composed volleys of hypnotic arpeggios and liquescent leads invoke a series of stunning non-linear ascents and suddenly poignant leaps towards jagged ancient formations below.

A self-assured display of tumultuous Black Metal mastery.
