VRTRA's debut release is a monumental hell-spawned beast that will crush the listener with the force of a cataclysm. Comprised of three colossal movements of oozing negativity for a total of over thirty minutes of completely abhorrent blackened death-doom chaos, VRTRA have crated an opera of abysmal imagination and of fathomless destructiveness, in which the primordial extreme metal fire of behemoths like Dead Congregation, Dragged Into Sunlight, Ulcerate, Diocletian, and Deasphell Omega is blown out of control by the swelling and foreboding atmospheres of bands like Neurosis, Unearthly Trance, Altar of Plagues, Disembowelment, and Blut Aus Nord.

I love Algleymi very much but there’s one area in which this is superior: production, especially the drums. Otherwise they’re two quite different records, but both are black metal classics as far as I’m concerned. Hopefully we won’t have to wait long to hear more. Metallurgical Fire
