DEBEMUR MORTI Blut Aus Nord members head deeper into the industrial outlands
The seeds for this debut appear to have been sown as far back as Blut Aus Nord’s 2003 masterpiece, The Work Which Transforms
God. On that album, Vindsval and W.D. Feld of the enigmatic French black metal act espoused the bleak virtues of industrial and darkwave music, highlighting their commonalities with black metal. Freed from the expectations of BAN’S followers on Yerûšelem’s first LP, the duo now delve deeper within those scenes while still wielding the discordance that has long been the hallmark of their creative endeavours in extreme metal. The juddering bass pulse of Godflesh runs constant throughout, but on top of this Yerûšelem craft electric soundscapes that draw power from Coil and Killing Joke, while also sourcing direct stimuli from goth rock, shoegaze, post-punk, electronica, and avantgarde BM and bending these established styles to suit their new will.
