BLUT AUS NORD "777 "The Desanctification" [CD, Digipak]
Black Metal from France
And so comes to pass the second chapter in BLUT AUS NORD's "777" trilogy - "The Desanctification". Having prophesised impending disaster on the predecessor, "777 - Sect(s)", BLUT AUS NORD moves deeper into a nightmare realm, i.e. reality. This new work illustrates the precise moment when man finds himself embraced in frightening, almost unbearable solitude in a deconstructed world void of all material and spiritual elements. "777 - The Desanctification" captures the shocking aftermath of mankind's liberation from the constraints of culture, history and superstition - he is freed of idols but now stands alone in a massive, empty universe. Devoid of emotion; without purpose or reason. It's a terrifying place to be, yet, as modern man, we all reside here. With political, religious and philosophical power negated - and time (our great companion) annihilated - the celestial being is stripped bare, reality altered amid irreversible illumination. Unmistakably BLUT AUS NORD, "777 - The Desanctification" is typically swarming, manic and cascading but also more ambient and atmospheric than "777 - Sect(s)". With speed and violence eschewed in favour of morose moods and unsettling soundscapes, this journey is meditative, trancelike and intriguing. Are you ready to be desanctified?
