Deathspell Omega: Chaining the Katechon

Deathspell Omega are back with their latest single song EP of technical, textured black metal, this one titled Chaining the Katechon. This one's 20+ minutes of layered, often times dissonant guitar riffs, which conjure up plenty of moods, shades, colors, and textures. As it's one long epic piece, the song goes through many twists and changes, moody and somber at the outset, the growling vocals and weaving guitar riffs driven by the intricate drum patterns, but picks up speed at times in true black metal fashion. Honestly, there's as much of a death metal and post rock/prog influence here as well, with long extended passages of intertwining guitar lines, plenty of atmosphere, and some ponderous rhythms. Jangly guitar explorations often morph into furious death riffing or tremelo picked madness, as the band keeps the listener on the edge of their seat throughout the entire journey. The blindingly fast sections are quite complex, the rapid guitar, bass, and drum lines all firing away in unison, and the brutal vocal delivery adding the final piece to the puzzle.

Well though out and well crafted, Chaining the Katechon is another fine addition to the Deathspell Omega discography, and should whet the appetite for a future full length release.
