Argentinum Astrum - Malleus Maleficarum LP

$9.00 $11.00
Released by Forcefield Records, description from the label: Although there are just three songs on this release, all of them manage to pack in a punch. The opener is a track called ‰ÛÏI‰۝ and it starts off slow and doomy and has a rainy intro and slowly ambles into minor chords and low-key howls to oblivion. The second track is titled ‰ÛÏII‰۝ and is brutal. It is primitivist ‰ÛÏto-the-roots‰۝ black metal at its finest. They throw harmonics out of the window and ‰ÛÏIII‰۝ promptly follows suit. Both tracks pack in atmospheric riffs and the lead guitar is also melodic at parts. The tracks seem very similar though and I was disappointed by the lack of variety. A DIY album through and through, the production values need a lot of polish. But Argentinum Astrum provide a much needed shot in the arm for a genre that was silently rotting away. They bring in a fresh breath of doom and death and the both-worlds approach work well. They try to play to their strengths but end up revealing some cracks along the way but this is a band that never looked like that it stuck to convention and its good to see them go wild on this release.
