Stahanas Orchestra - 85%

Poe Ohlin, January 10th, 2012

When you think of black metal, the first bands that come to mind are Mayhem, Venom, Bathory, Celtic Frost, Darkthrone, and many others. One band you might hear of is a sort of obscure band named Abruptum. I say obscure because I doubt many people will listen to noise that makes you want to go out and murder. Abruptum is not music one little bit. It may feature instruments, but this is used to heightens the evil in your mind.

This album, titled "Obscuritatem Advoco Amplectére Me", is a very good example of that statement. The album is one 52 minute song, broken into two parts/tracks. Track one is titled Obscuritatem Advoco and track two is tiled Amplectere Me. Both of these songs are, as I said, in no way, shape or form music. You might hear guitars, bass, drums, and the occasional Latin, but the majority of the noise you hear is band members IT and Evil torturing themselves. This is like taking an acid trip on whatever Dante was on.

There really isn't much in this album to review because it is nothing but men being tortured with the background of guitars and drums. This is one of those things to not do alone or in the dark, let alone both as repeated listening can cause seizures, homicidal thoughts, as well as other bad things. On a lighter note, the artwork on the cover is pretty cool.

If you wish to hear what Hell might sound like, this the album to buy. It's fairly cheap and is available at your local Amazon.com, so follow the link on the side to one of the various sites. And once you buy it, listen, listen to the noise of evil.....
