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.
