Boreal - The Battle Of VOSAD

 


It's strange to think that 17 years after its inception, Boreal are finally releasing their debut album. The Battle Of VOSAD is in fact stranger than that - it is a re-recording, and in some ways a reimagining of the bands 2006 demo of the same name. The record has become something of a soundtrack to band founder AEF's life and struggles. The way he has sought to find piece in an increasingly harrowing world of pain and lies. What one finds within is a sense of the sublime. Of hope in the darkness, but also some twisted black metal. 

Boreal have, on this record crystalized the ambient black metal sounds that impressed us all so much in the early days of the band. Tracks like 'Dawn' really lean into the bleak atmospheres of the music and leave listeners in awe of the fundamental terror within. The vocals, which set exceptionally low in the mix are almost more a part of the backdrop than anything else. Heavily padded by synths and droning guitar lines, there is something about this album that borders on the terrifying. The pain within is clear, but the album doesn't really bleed into DSBM. Instead this is just a threnody in a world that seems increasingly difficult to live in. 

The Battle Of VOSAD is a potent offering and one that fans of underground American black metal will find enchanting. There is a profoundly lo fi magic to this type of ambient black metal. It's the sort of thing you put on on a Sunday morning and find yourself suddenly journeying through dark sonic passageways and experiencing the miserable bitterness within. The Battle Of VOSAD is masterful in its execution, hinting at so much to come and definitely proving that Boreal are among the greats in the world of atmospheric black metal.

  1. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: emutemple@gmail.com or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542
