Smeary power electronics, decaying thrumming static structures, low end drones that sounds like a seance soundtrack all create a Stygian stew of seasick electronic crepitations that reminds me most of old Nocturnal Emissions records, some classic TG moments, a bit of Lurker of Chalice, Atrium Carceri and Brighter Death Now. It's subtle too, so it made for a great listen on the headphones during a long cold winter walk.
Black Ambient of the highest order. Italy’s Clavicvla channels the cosmic void, the source and finality of all things manifest. A true sonic force that reverberates through the core, allowing to escape one’s physical form and delve deep without, where logic and comprehensions are null...
Diabolical black ambient/death industrial demon Claviclva returns with his blood-chilling sophomore LP "Sepulchral Blessing", unravelling another forty minutes of tyrannical nightmare fuel that will leave the listener catatonic and agonizing in horror. With "Sepulchral Blessing" this time Clavicvla constructs a sonic tomb of immense evocative force that inters the listener into a lucid nightmare and transports them straight into the kingdom of the dead, acting as an abominable sonic vessel to the underworld. Unbelievably repulsive, blood-chillingly horrific and unyieldingly evil, on this astonishing new work sole mastermind Ittiel has harnessed the quintessence of malignity and created a cinematic soundtrack to a ghastly decent into the underworld, where diabolical atmospheres drenched in the stench of death, nightmarish soundscapes, and monstrous drones and sub-bass frequencies are masterfully interwoven and manipulated to envelop, entrance, and entomb the listener into the nethermost pits of hell.
PLAY THIS RECORD ALONE, IN THE DARK, AND AT THE MAXIMUM VOLUME POSSIBLE.
