Kerasfóra – 'Six Nights Beyond The Serpent's Threshold' LP

140g Black vinyl edition with insert limited to 300 copies

An obsidian gem from Chile like few others, its mesmerising mysticism sounding utterly ancient. KERASFÓRA's debut album is set to eclipse that and everything else within the wider black metal scene evoking forgotten realms and vast vistas of wonder. And yet, here does the one-man KERASFÓRA strike upon bolder or at least more rarefied territory with his inscrutable usage of synths: whereas so many black metal bands, past and present, use synths as a blanket of atmosphere - often unobtrusively, for fear of "un-true" accusations - the selfsame main-man puts them front and center across these Six Nights, carrying each song's main melody with an almost-demonic lullaby style. It's difficult, then, to compare that synth usage / prominence to KERASFÓRA's contemporaries; one would likely have to dig deep into the realm of old psychedelia and krautrock in the '70s or the first caustic rumblings of post-punk at the dawn of the '80s to locate a proper analog(ue). Which is all to say that, somehow, Six Nights Beyond the Serpents Threshold manages to be more BLACK METAL than all and sundry: menacing and majestic, wonderfully weird and wildly singular. That KERASFÓRA's guitar tone is even thicker and his gait grimmer and more lumbering here simply make the album an even grander achievement.
