Melancholic depressive Black Metal of the slow kind, which is primarily remarkable for its Chinese origin. But the real highlight of the record are the vocals that penetrate through bone and marrow, constantly outdoing themselves in their expression. From deeply carried grunting to tearful moaning to silencer-like screaming cascades, the whole range is on board.
Favorite track: Neter.
I like the extreme sides of BM and DSBM is exactly that. This man, this LEGEND has exactly grasped the idea of terror, pain, fear. The last piece of hope somebody holds on to for dear life. Not only the screams but also the instrumentals are topnotch.
also I goddamn love this cover-art!
Favorite track: 白.
Originating from Hong Kong, the preview of the debut album《遺。白》(Loss. Paleness) from the low-profile depressive black metal act DISMAL finally hits the light of darkness. Bearing a central theme of life values and laws of karma, this traditional DBM outfit follows a solid pathway without any trendy influences. Only in death are we no longer strangers.
My favorite track is actually "Blood Oath". After purchasing this album , i realized that the download version doesn't have that song.
Hope the physical copy i bought have got that song. Will be very disappointed if it doesn't... nick666dechristianize
NONE came into my life right when i needed them and gave me exactly what i needed. Incredibly powerful and awe inspiring, with a palpable wall of emotion that showers over you and through you with every listen. Amazing work of art. Someone put their whole entire soul into this album and it shines through in a brilliant display over the course of every track. With this album in your headphones you can get through anything life throws at you. 10/10 Jeremiah Friel
