Ver: The Measure Of Waste

Eschewing the usual satanic, blasphemous themes of black metal, Budapest's Ver focus on the decadence of human nature and the world itself for their grim hymns, and suitably bleak and brutal they are. Opener 'We've Lost In Light', while initially sounding like the typical galloping and fiery tirades we're used to, is the first track to introduce some dark grooves, the likes of which re-emerge across the album from 'Pull The Trigger' through to 'This Spring is The Last'. Persistent rhythms clash with wall-of-fire chords and intense riffs and torn-throat vocals in a heaving aesthetic that spans all kinds of dismalness from the desolate and desperate to the unremittingly savage and caustic. The dark melodies and tormented discordance are spiked with brutality. While this is a black metal album and a very good one at that not one of the tracks could be considered to be adhering to some aesthetic template structurally or dynamically. Ver manage to do something different with their black palette. This is raw and primal, the wrath directed at the state of the world and its depraved inhabitants pervading every ounce of this filth. As black metal albums go this is great. As dbuts go, this is astounding. You might want of get hold of this soon.

First released in 2009 on CD, Ver's The Measure Of Waste is now available on vinyl (limited to 300 copies) and cassette (limited to 55 copies) resplendent in new artwork and design through Neverheard Distro, a Hungarian company specialising in spreading Hungarian darkness throughout the world.
