ALBUM REVIEWS : KAZERIA AND IGNIIS - SUMMONING THE ELDER ONES
It wouldn’t surprise me at all if the most cited authors among goths must be Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft. H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) wrote in his short life a long list of horrorstories that got their inspiration from his own nightmares. Like it’s the case with every cultural icon we have to take it with the needed dose of salt but also an inspiration for another great black album as this “Summoning the elder ones” is a tributealbum to H.P. Lovecraft. Kazeria and Igniis are two Argetinian musicians who teamed up together and got offered a chance by Spanish indus-terrorists Gradual Hate to release this album. On here you’ll find 10 songs and we guess that every smart reader already understood that every one of them has become a musical impression from a Lovecraft-story. This cd is a very morbid one, so dark that I can’t think that there is any horrormovie on the market which can describe such a claustrophobic feeling. This collection of noises gathers everything that’s black (and that goes from terrifying churchbells to the steaming sounds from hell) and at times it feels like this sounds as if In The Nursery would have composed a soundtrack for a horrormovie. The atmosphere is everywhere the same, one without future. Musicwise Kazeria And Igniis are on a rollercoasterride that brings you from darkwave to neo-classic to neofolk to dark ambient and of course industrial. Anyone who wants this will better be quick as this is limited to 500 copies.
