Selbst - Relatos De Angustia

This is truly South American black metal at its finest. Selbst were originally a Venezuelan band who have since relocated to Chile. Their unique sound is the sort of aggressive, angular and demented stuff you might expect to hear out of the Northern European scene. However, here we are treated to six tracks of deafening fury driven by blasting rage and hateful anguish. on Relatos De Angustia Selbst take their sound one twisted step forward. It's hard not to be enamored with the gorgeous madness of what goes on here as the band continue to evolve.

There is a sense of existential torment on this record that serves to make Relatos De Angustia a mesmerizing listen. The depth of these tracks is impressive, in fact this is one of the most full realized south American black metal records that I have heard in a very long time. The sense of dynamics is excellent and the band seem ambitious to make their sound ever broader and more elegantly executed. The stellar production especially shines through on tracks like 'Sculpting The Dirtiness Of Existence' where interlocking guitars and powerful atmospherics work together to ensure one of the deepest tracks on the record.

Abrasive, hateful and wonderfully introspective this is a black metallers black metal record. It borrows from several key sides of the genre and sees the band trying to build on past successes. Relatos De Angustia is a powerful next step for Selbst. They have advanced their entire sound with this second full length. Suddenly the years have locked into place and Selbst have proven that they are a premier black metal export and definitely something to be spending time with. Relatos De Angustia is a thrilling listen, let's sink our teeth into it together.

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
