Grima Morstua: Illustratio Per Horribilem Obscuritatem

Black Metal from Argentina this time around, on the brand new release from Grima Morstua. Illustratio Per Horribilem Obscuritatem is as raw as you get, as the band take their Spanish roots and apply a healthy dose of Norwegian black metal influences ala Darkthrone & Mayhem. Much of what you'll hear on this CD is not an easy listen, but it's certainly well played and sticks to many of the traditional black metal elements, including evil, tortured vocal shrieks, pummeling blast beats, and some very inventive, textured guitar riffs. The vocals might be a tad overpowering for the non-black metal enthusiast, as they are truly over the top and dominate the mix, at times pushing the highly inventive and kick ass music accompanying it to the background. Still, there's no denying that tunes like "For My Vengeance to Rest" and "Venenum Sathani", despite the exaggerated ferocity of the vocals, contains some excellent musical handywork, especially the guitar playing, which makes Illustratio Per Horribilem Obscuritatem worth seeking out for fans of underground black metal.
