Over a rather young while no less prolific career, the Italian nihilist under the anonym as Veirg has been exploring the negative side of banal life and the shadow of depression over the fallen generation of the new millennial. With Suicide Emotions, one of his most renowned projects, Veirg push the boundary of the already controversial genre of DSBM with his aesthetic of sentimental melancholy. Suicide Emotions' sound has been evolving ever since his 2012 debut, from a straightforward minimalistic approach of classic DSBM to a more sophisticated style that favors a more atmospheric and post-metal-oriented music of sorrow, all of which are culminated in his fourth full length titled A New Dawn. This is a record all fans of this particular genre would appreciate, as Veirg skillfully combined all of those elements of dark yet enchanting catharsis per se into this record: 5 lengthy songs of gloomy fantasy with intoxicating melodies and forlorn atmosphere, making them a unforgettable journey for those like-minded troubled souls. What waits for us after the bleak winter sun breaks through the new dawn? Suicide Emotions doesn't promise an answer, but an experience, of a future rooted in self-destructive grief.
I'm so glad that i discovered this great Band. First contact was the new "Uinuos..." album and from the choir in the beginning until the riffs of the third song i had nothing more to do than knee down in respect for that creative power... simply stunning after a big episode of the blackmetal boredom last years. Just consequent to buy this masterpiece after another moment of glad tears in my eyes hearing the beginning of "Vainovalkeat"! Thanks for healing a part of the north in my heart🤘
The latest Battle Dagorath is not quite as genius as its predecessor Frozen Light. Yes, the production is better and the guitars get a lot more of well-deserved attention. However, while BSB does a hell of a job, Vinterriket is truly missed this time. Keys are simpler and the interludes..., well... Still, Abyss Horizons is an outstanding example of sublime Black Metal. It takes you on a cosmic journey to your inner self and back in just 75 min. Highly recommended and easily album of the year. Mohemian
