Blut Aus Nord - Disharmonium - Undreamable Abysses

Blut Aus Nord are back and more avant garde, terrifying and crushing than ever! The French black metal masters unleash a soundtrack to hell on their new record Disharmonium - Undreamable Abysses. It's a burning fire of a release that really feasts on the chaos and the darkness within all this music. It's a delight to get really immersed in the madness of the album and to drink the blood that they have spilled. This is black metal done right, forcing you to question your sanity and driving you to the brink . It's twisted, heavy and punishingly evil. 

Disharmonium - Undreamable Abysses is a mesmerizing record and one that will see you getting lost in dystopian abysses. There is a sense of shifting and world tilting madness here that feels almost Lovecraftian in scope. This record also feels distinctly more instrumental in its focus than previous releases. The emphasis seems to be on creating vile and terrifying soundscapes that even the most hardened avant black metal veterans will be terrified by. And yet -as demented as some of these sounds are, it's hard to look away. The weird and otherworldly sounds of a track like "Neptune's Eyes" are eerie and alien, exactly what draws me into a record. 

Blut Aus Nord have always been on the bleeding edge of black metal, but this record proves they are years ahead of many of their peers. This is challenging and fascinating music that goes ever deeper in its vision and seems to push the band to exciting new places. Even from the first listen it's clear this record is special. It's a step forward for the band and a suffocating offering that will keep you lost in time. Grab it when it drops this Friday, because if there's one genre bending black metal record you're gonna spin this year, it had better be this one.

Pre-order the album!
