Split CD / Vinyl

Empusae & Klankdal

~~Some math (no meth!) before starting: one plus one might be more than two. My sons do not agree, since their teacher tried to convince them that one plus one simply makes two, always, no exception. My autistic half totally agrees. 1 + 1 = 2. I checked it on the web, and indeed, this formula leaves no room for conflict or friction. But still, my stubborn part might be convinced of the opposite.

Hulduefni / i AM esper / Paleozoic / Satanath

~~Well, misanthropy and sarcasm often go hand in hand. I think that’s a good thing, because the extinction of humanity can be humorous, is it not?! This given can also be translated in a sonic concept, and that’s where Aliens vs Dinosaurs enters the conversation. What if an aliensaur would invade our world in order to end (human) life? Wouldn’t that be a fantastic nightmare with a bloody yet cool result, for Mater Terra would be saved from the sickness called ‘humanity’, and nature might reconquer its righteous throne? I’m in for some philosophical reflection…

Drama & Perdition Winds

For the xth time, Satanath Records and Black Plague Records are joining forces in order to punish the world with a merciless skull-hammering release, this time under the banner of a split in between two fine acts, Russia’s Drama and Perdition Winds from Finland.

God Mother / Artemis

Another split 7”EP by WOOAAARGH, another opportunity for fans of the extreme… Check this out!

This untitled vinyl disc gets released in an edition of 240 ‘doom black’ copies and 240 transparent ones green mixed with black. Both bands come with a couple of new songs, following the legacy of acts like Converge – but I’m going too fast right now (influenced by this sonic shit?)…

Eviscerated Entrails / Dismetry / Derogation

Extraterrestrial: Embodiment (also entitled as: Extraterrestrial: Embodiment: Split) is the first split release on Novodvinsk, Russia based (Gore / Brutal / Grinding) Death Metal label Lord Of The Sick Recordings. The material is extremely limited, at least the CD edition (if I’m not mistaken it’s limited to an edition of twenty copies only???), so it makes it even more attractive for the ‘true’ Death / Grind adept. Besides, it comes with a poster and a shirt indeed!

Curse / Styggelse / WAN

Satanath Records release, and do appreciate that, quite a lot of splits too. I like it because it might fill up a hiatus for a band’s relative silence in between two albums, for example. Or a split contains rare or old and hard-to-get stuff. Or just because it offers some variety. Or it might give you the opportunity to meet bands you haven’t been listening to before. Or… Nope, this is not an essay on my opinion on split collaborations, but it’s a review for a threesome…

Sacrificia Mortuorum / Orthanc

I sort of ‘adore’ about everything that gets released via French Black Metal label Hass Weg Productions, simply because they do focus on true, uncompromising, qualitative releases instead of over-produced, trendy acts that try to impress with a fake image. If you click on the label’s name, you will be able to find some other reviews I did for this label (I wrote them with pleasure and devotion, let’s be sure about that!).
