Recenzja SACRIFICIUM CARMEN „Hermetica”


SACRIFICIUM CARMEN
„Hermetica”
Saturnal Records 2018


Sacrificium Carmen to typowy przedstawiciel Black Metalu made by Suomi. Na wydanym w 2018 roku drugim albumie grupy znajdziemy wszystko to, co charakteryzuje Fińską szkołę tego gatunku. Solidną, mocną, wbijającą kolejne ciernie w czaszkę sekcję rytmiczną, zimne, surowe, melodyjne riffy zawierające spore pokłady melancholii, które przyjemnie bujają i na swój sposób hipnotyzują słuchacza oraz klasyczny, Black Metalowy, momentami nieco histeryczny, bluźnierczy wokal. Brzmieniowo bez zarzutu, jest przestrzennie, mocno, z odpowiednią porcją jadu i całkiem konkretnym dołożeniem do pieca. Teksty oczywiście w języku mieszkańców z kraju tysiąca jezior, zatem także w tym elemencie pewna tradycja zostaje zachowana. Płytki całkiem przyjemnie się słucha, ale o żadnych kolanach nie ma mowy. „Hermetica” ma jak dla mnie jedną, podstawową wadę. Łatwo, szybko i bezproblemowo wchodzi i tak samo szybko, a może i jeszcze szybciej wychodzi, nie pozostawiając po sobie nic w moich zwojach mózgowych. Po 15-20 minutach od zakończenia odsłuchu praktycznie zapominam, że chwilę temu ta płyta gościła w moim odtwarzaczu. Brakuje mi tu jakiegoś małego choćby punktu zaczepienia, który spowodowałby, że ten materiał mógłby u mnie pod potylicą zakotwiczyć na trochę dłużej. Zadeklarowani fani Black Metalu zapewne bez popitki łykną drugi album Sacrificium Carmen i sprawi im on sporo radochy. Jak dla mnie (używając terminologii sportowej) ta płyta mieści się gdzieś w środku II ligowej tabeli, jednym słowem posłuchać można, ale do obsrania daleko.

Another Polish black metal horde, which we are proud to present
 in Heerwegen Tod Production.
Pożoga's music should be characterized as spontaneous black metal
in a rock and roll style, with a bit of death metal atmosphere.

(HTP-MC 038)

Once again, we would like to present cold and raw uncompromised material
of the black metal Chłód project.
From material to material, the project has more and more to offer listeners total raw, which is whirling from hatred. Anyone who knows the art of this one-person project,
will treat this material as another fume, pain, hatred and black metal fury,
played primitively, while adding sulfur to hellish fumes in an effective way.
Almost 34 minutes of dingy, raw and stained with no technical nonsense,
crude black metal music. Tape limited to 66 copies.

Price: 2,66 euro/ 3,66 $/ 8,88 PLN
