Locus Mortis: Inter Uterum Et Loculum MMXI

Locus Mortis have chosen to re-arrange, re-record and re-release their 2005 album Inter Uterum Et Loculum, I assume because the original edition sold out and they fear it may disappear into obscurity. Such a decision does raise questions about the bands re-appraisal of their own work and makes you wonder why, since their last album was 2007's Voust, they haven't produced a new album instead. Of course, the benefit is that this will bring their name and material to a wider audience, and no doubt make the original that little bit more sought-after. Cunning. But this album stands as one worth seeking out. This time, the Italian duo has recorded it with a real drummer and so the songs now have more of a "human" feel, thus making their message more convincing. The production is broad and expansive. The thick, echoing guitars fill the ear-splitting landscape of lightless terror, and the quality of the bass tone, an instrument too often lost or buried in the black metal mix, is outstanding, and allows the instrument to flesh out the mix and impart more ominous weight. Their incorporation of guttural death grunts into the rapid, raging black blastbeats further distinguishes them from the throng. What they have done to the material reinvigorates the disease-ridden tunes and elevates them to the level they deserve. Ultra morbid, Inter Uterum Et Loculum MMXI is a wise move. Intelligent, melodic, harsh and raw, should it have disappeared into the forests of bootleg land, it would have been a crime.
