Experimental Industrial Black Metal.
In the very sense of what musical art is, this is simply no music. Period. But if you take music as into experimental and unexplored areas of the sonic world, there’s no way that Empire Auriga is not championing it!
This is their second full, and I’ve never had a chance to hear their first opus, but this one is really a suffering way to sit through.
The first track Prophetic Light is a drone. Nothing else. Almost 6 minutes of drone.
Jubilee Warlord is what shows why Empire Auriga is here. They make a sort of depressive black metal, very funeral indeed, but so processed in computers that they really live to their “industrial” label. But imagine something like Nortt, ten times worse.
The Solarthrone, Waste and Planetary Awakening are really hard to endure, but they are not bad tracks: one has to REALLY get used to their droneful depressive sound. Believe me, this is different of everything that you’ve heard in the field.
The Foundation of All Human Fears is PURE Dark Ambient!
There is not so much to say about this album because it sounds all the same. But one thing is certain, this is no ordinary music, this is avant-gard for explorers of new territories.. .
Ascending the Solar Throne is out now on Moribund.
