The highly prolific Turkish artists (Ruahanathanas, Emir Toğrul and Merdümgiriz) bleed a chaotic strain of highly experimental black metal. Zeroes consists of two tracks both breaching the 20 minute mark. Icy guitar melodies drift lazily countered by blasts of apocalyptic freakouts. Feral incantations are highlighted by spine-tingling howls. Washes of synths create an impermeable atmosphere of ancient dread. And the percussion is truly possessed, following unpredictable paths, all in the name of creating a desperate sounding and unique identity.
The trio appear totally absorbed by their creative forces and thusly, the listener is drawn in as well, wrapped under layers of sonically manifested terror and confusion. As expected from this group of musicians, Zeroes is a challenging and exhaustive experience. Prepare thyself.
