De Magia Veterum: The Divine Antithesis

For those unschooled in the Avant-garde or willing to venture into very unfamiliar and perhaps sonically threatening territory, the deformed brain-damaged child of Mories de Jong (aka 'M'), De Magia Veterum will prove uneasy listening. Songs? Forget it. Melody? Nope. Hooks? Only the type from which sacrificial virgins are suspended. The Divine Antithesis is an anti-religious depraved maniacal musical rant of nightmarish proportions. The twisted, ghostly and ghoulish vocals emerge from the darkest side of oblivion and sound like the self-flagellation of a demented schizophrenic purging himself of evil spirits. The instruments are in the hands of some psychopathic surgeon experimenting on the still-twitching and mutilated cadaver of the music rulebook and each track is an unpredictably cacophonous soundscape. Definitely difficult on the palate, this will deter most. Black and bleak, only the brave will endure.

2. The Stench of Burning Wings
3. The Flaming Sword
4. The Heavens
5. Torn Between Ruins, Faith and the Divine
