Porta Nigra - Schöpfungswut Digi-CD


Abruptly portrayed and neatly arranged into a vortex of fluidic and passionately drilled black metal, ‘Schöpfungswut’ offers the gnarled, multi-directional gloom of modern melodic black metal embittered by traditional feats of inspiration. In leaving behind the coiling quirk of their past a second time Porta Nigra grow outwardly resonant, penetrable for the sake of delivering an inspired, ‘felt’ album that streams downward in glorious manner. For the sake of policing the new, the old, the borrowed and the ingenious you’ll not hear anything so massively avant-garde from ‘Schöpfungswut’ beyond Tongue‘s (Chaos Invocation, Crescent, Ave Maria) vocal performances which range from a deathly von Meilenwald-esque harshness and a reasonable range of German dark/black metal hybridized voicing throughout; Moaning, chanting, ranting, breathing, rasping, and all manner of raving lunacy from the artist is perhaps more remarkably varied and interesting than it’ll appear with a cursory listen, since the guitars are mixed into dominance within the forward surround as the vocals growl and emit their freakery atop the experience.
