Xalpen-Wowk Otrr Review

Xalpen - MLP III-Cover-WEB.jpg

“Intro,” a haunting serenade that sets the tone quite nicely. “Kay Taw,” a dark menacing giant looming in the shadows, preparing to destroy anything and everything before it. “In Darkness Remains,” another song that verges from one point to another, bringing heaviness and melody. “The Vengeance,” a song that barrels and snarls and growls. It is quite compact and divergent from the get go.

“Chant to Xosh,” a song that grits and bites, tearing itself one way and then another, producing something that is quite intriguing, whilst also being quite dark. “Oculus Australis,” a song that is filled with death chants, roaring melodies and confused back stops is an interesting song for the times. “The Barn Owl,” perfectly closes things up.

The album is out now via  Morbid Skull Records.

Xalpen-Wowk Otrr Review

Xalpen - MLP III-Cover-WEB.jpg

The intro is absolutely terrifying, bringing elements of darkness and decay right to the fore. Kay Taw continues down this terrifying route with the bass and guitars brawling into life and producing some absolutely insane mesh of lyrics and grit. Ten Hashpen is a snarling monster and done in classic black metal style. Shwaken comes barrelling out with grit and monstrosity.

Chant to Xosh is a discordant mesh of melodies and rage. Oculus Australis is a monster, filled with grit and determination it builds on melodies and darkness. The Barn Owl finishes things off with softness and anger.

The album is out on 13th September via Morbid Skull Records.
