Haeresiarchs of Dis - Denuntiatus Cinis (Moribund 2010)
Haeresiarchs of Dis is a one man US black metal project that manages to stir up massive furors of Emperor (circa In The Nightside Eclipse). The tracks are total hell storms of absolute symphonic black chaos but with every bit of sophistication as would be expected from a full band and yet Cernunnos and a few contributors manage to launch a full scale sonic storm that can not only hold it’s own weight but definitely devastates many acts out there today.
Maybe I’m just a sucker for anything that reminds me of: classic Emperor, Limbonic Art, Dark Fortress and the like, but I’m also pretty stoked when a new black metal release strays from the notable minimal, raw, and avant-garde styles and just brings me back the occultic and epic sounds of years past. There’s an atmosphere of an almost pure morbidity and cinematic existence within this album that cannot be ignored nor denied.
