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
DSBM at its finest. Oddly calming despite the emotional bleakness of it all; it reminds me of Coldworld’s “Melancholie2” in this respect, though it’s a somewhat harsher and bleaker album than that one. The third track, in particular, is a masterpiece. verdantglade
