Dies Borrelis I can't help, but the mixing of stenches albums is just superb. The perfect balance between independency and symbiosis of the instruments. Great musicianship is the key to driving and virtuous songstructures. Sometimes they even cross some surfrock with blackmetal, well, what else can you ask for? And in the end it's still brutal. Favorite track: We Should Not Exist.
MindOverFour thumbnail
MindOverFour Progressive, blackened yet still old-school death metal by members of Tribulation. Reminiscent of 90's Euro-death metal and yet very melodic and contemporary sounding. More polished than their previous release. Favorite track: Small Death.

"Venture" features seven brand new songs reminiscent of horror infected old-school death metal, but with a otherworldly vibe which prudently creeps into the music and makes it even more adventurous. At times harmonious and melodic, at times dreadful and rowdy - the Swedes play their own game, picturing fear, anxiety and risk with their instruments.

Jonathan Hultén (guitars) comments: "Venture" is a journey from the rawest, most monotonous cellar-darkness up to a desolate mountain top, from which you are thrown into the abyss below in a castanedian manner. If only but for a moment or even throughout the whole 38 minutes, be prepared to enter the other world. For four years we have been boiling down our material to the bone in pursuit of the essence of this type of music. Our conclusion is that the simple and repetitive riffing is holding the key, and is enhanced by more or less subtle choirs and sound textures. Primitive, yet atmospheric".

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Jonas Wikstrand (Enforcer) in Necromorbus Studio (Watain, Portrait, etc.). Unique album artwork created by Necromantic Art (Tribulation, Necrovation, etc.).

Recommended for fans of Nifelheim, Autopsy, Repugnant, Tribulation, Kaamos, Master's Hammer or Watain...
