Swedish black metal from the '90s
The arrival of EscumergamÃ«nt has been a long and clandestine journey, starting about five years ago and now revealing its ugly head with the release of ...ni degu fazentz escumergamÃ«nt e mesorga... The album is composed of six songs, each one a key that opens a far greater concept. Just like the artwork, we wanted to introduce the beholder to something rather compelling, just to slowly plunge them deeper into the abyss. The first lyric, 'Of old night and winter', and the last, 'Black ash and ruin', are a beginning and an end of this cycle, the former being about the deep-rooted wish to extinguish all the stars in the universe, the latter a story about the last lingering souls left gazing into a universe devoid of all light and life.
We recorded the album more or less live in a small wooden chapel on reel to reel tape, without triggers and click tracks. A very analogue recording, something that was important to us. What you hear is what we play, errors and all. Since it was winter, the temperature inside and outside the chapel was not too far apart. Discomfort brings creativity, and in three days the album was recorded. The mixing took place during the summer at one of our home studios.
Expect eerie and obscure black metal with a different kind of darkness than your typical juvenile black metal band. Conceptually we work with riddles and clues, inspired by authors such as Arthur Machen and Clark Ashton Smith. We want the listener to receive something way more substantial than just a slab of music with lyrics and layout that are there just to be there. Secrets are to be found for those eager to travel into the starless nights.
It is almost impossible to keep a line-up a secret in 2021, but we try to do our best to keep a low profile when it comes to EscumergamÃ«nt. Since what we create is so different from our past work, we don't want any wrongful preconceptions that could cloud the experience of .â.â.âni degu fazentz escumergamÃ«nt e mesorgaâ.â..
