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.

You see that saxophone-playing Jawa in the bottom right? That's Markov Soroka making this sick ass album. You see that cosmic baby floating in the canyon? That's me listening to this sick ass album. Cole “Master ov Crabs” Galando
A corrosive mix of death, doom, psychedelia, and black metal, the Portland quartet’s debut full-length is a bona fide underground monolith that shapeshifts with each listen, all while maintaining its essential heaviness. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 1, 2019
