Album: Konung Krönt i Blod / Salve Teragmon EP
Artist: Trepanerungsritualen & Nordvargr
Label: Cyclic Law
Krönt i Blod
What happens when two
juggernauts of the industrial scene collide and re-envision each other’s
material? In a nutshell – this recently released limited edition 7” of 300 is
what you get. It’s amazing just how much brooding malice and blackened
atmospherics can be crammed into something which comes in at just under ten
‘Konung Krönt i Blod’
(King Crowned in Blood) is savage enough in its original form (which can be
heard on TPR’s 2014 Perfection &
Permanence album) but somehow Nordvargr has managed to create something
even more terrifying by stretching it, dragging it through fire and mud, then
rinsing the detritus off in industrial-strength acid. What the process leaves
is a blackened bare-bones carcass drenched in decay and filth.
TPR (Thomas Ekelund)
slices apart the black-industrial/swamp-dance stylings of Nordvargr’s ‘Salve
Teragmon’ with an axle-grinder, reassembles it with rusty nails and surgical
sutures, and then finally subjects it to unhealthy doses of radioactivity. The
original’s percussive element is the only part of it that’s been retained but
even then it’s mutated into something considerably begrimed, soiled, and
thoroughly infected and dripping with ichor.
This has been out since
May 1st but I have no hesitation in declaring it one of my records
of the year so far. It has all the elements that dock into my taste receptors
in whatever part of my brain that processes such things and brings out the
happy. It’s been quite a while since I’ve heard such stained and tainted
magnificence. If you can find the original 7” vinyl the grab it, otherwise it’s
available on Bandcamp on the link below:
