Winter Deluge - Degradation Renewal

Man - this one is a rager. New Zealand has had some interesting extreme metal over the years, like Ulcerate whose new record comes out today. Degradation Renewal though is something else. The bands third release and first in four years this is the sort of intense and in depth black metal listen that turned me onto their label, Osmose Productions in the first place. The band has crafted something transcendent and powerful here, the sort of black metal that is fierce, but also aware of its own sense of bombast.

Degradation Renewal excites just for the raw energy it brings to the table. The opening track, 'Mass Graves' throws you right into the madness and it doesn't let up. Even the album closer, 'Within The Remnants Of Humanity' is awash with flashy guitars and twisted conjurations. Degradation Renewal repeatedly goes above and beyond, hinting at exciting new ways that the band can evolve, pointing at new futures and guiding us towards oblivion. This is a record that seems eager with its own bloodthirst, but also clearly points towards so much more. Degradation Renewal continually mesmerizes what's not to love?

So yeah - if you're looking for a more ambient or artsy black metal record the this maybe isn't the one for you. However if you are looking for a band from the same scene that birthed groups like Destroyer 666 with their over the top assault and sense of destruction then you're going to be right at home with Degradation Renewal. The band has brought it to a whole new level here and it's hard to not be continually thrilled with the twisted magic that they have continually conjured up on Winter Deluge.
