Black Wound – To the Limitless Depths (2021)

On the bodily launch of their debut
EP, the Swedish trio of Black Wound serve up a heady mixture of dying and
doom steel. Regardless of their younger ages (with a drummer who’s at the moment
17), the band has a strong lock on the model and substance, delivering
music with sufficient darkish efficiency to disgrace teams twice their age.

Opening monitor “Absence of Will”
jumps proper into their swampy stew of deep bass riffs, growling
vocals, and clanging percussion, with abrupt time signature and tempo
change-ups meshing into the grim gurgles and noisome grooves. “From
Eternity and Past” continues the extreme outpouring, with the
clangor of the cymbals rolling towards the buzzy fuzz and submerged
howls. All of the whereas, they sustain some hooky rhythms, pulling
listeners alongside by way of the surface-level chaos and into the sunken
structuring. It additionally options one in all their extra memorable breaks,
with a desolate-sounding solo benefiting from the velocity and
separation contrasts.

“Endless Labyrinth” carries on
with extra of a basic dying steel groove, although it is one which lets
the drummer actually flex and showcase his chops. In the meantime, the
guitarist goes exhausting in on his riffing, with a circling development
that fits the monitor title. “Lurker of the Threshold / Dweller of
the Depths” brings a contact of Lovecraft to the imagery, although it
would not alter the flavour of the music itself in any drastic method.
Some in depth tone maintain matches with the monstrous depths and
distance concepts of the title (at over seven minutes, that is additionally the
EP’s longest tour). Then it is on into closing monitor “Traitor”,
which shifts again right into a extra targeted grind to match the succinct
title. It is one of many cleaner-sounding tunes on the EP, with
one other stand-out solo free of the ambient din that marks most of
the songs discovered right here. All collectively, it is a rattling spectacular first
work from any band within the dying/doom cross-pollination, with
heaviness and brutality overflowing. This is to the arrival of Black
Wound, with hopes that their subsequent launch arrives quickly.
