1 of 1 thought this review was well written

Brenoritvrezorkre emerged as a musical force sometime around 1995, an act associated with the Les Légions Noires which is the now infamous French underground black metal scene that spawned such acts as Mütiilation, Vlad Tepes, Belketre and Torgeist. Allegedly formed as a response to the debated "black metal inner circle" of Norway, the mission statement of the movement was summed up by Vlad Tepes in the following statement, "We are Black Legions of Satan, we are the immortal warriors of Black imperial blood. We are here to pervert christian worms and they shall face the Black holocaust. It's near!"

The output of Brenoritvrezorkre is far from the most popular of the slew of LLN releases, and upon first listen to something like Nèvgzérýa it's easy to hear why. Whilst lo-fi black metal production values can certainly have its charm, Nèvgzérýa features some of the muddiest, recorded through a tin can onto a tape deck collection of sounds known to man. The background hiss makes itself comfortable as a prominent part of the ever unfolding soundscape, as guitars which seem to be wired through a 10 watt amp with a hole punched in the speaker by a pencil strum and pluck amongst some ambient drones. The hissing screams of the vocalist bring to mind the sheer depths of unspeakable torture, whether coming from an emotional standpoint or the reaction of the common listener to what they are hearing. The drums are barely audible at some points, double kickers being used to effect sometimes sounding like a wet paper bag being hit with a stick others like some guy making popping noises with his mouth and recording it into a mic. More screams, layers upon layers of tortured vocals. Tremelo picked distorted guitars, muddy production, lo-fi ambience. You get the picture. This may sound completely unflattering, but in a way it works. Depending on perspective either this could either be the most evil, kvlt band in the world, or one of the worst.

Nèvgzérýa isn't that much different from the rest of the Brenoritvrezorkre discography, and it would seem this is going to be a love it or hate it affair for the individual listener. If you like raw, emotional black metal, and don't mind even lower then usual production standards there is a good chance you might find something pleasing here, otherwise if you consider yourself as having some kind of standard to live up to even in the fields of dissonant, extreme music well you might want to steer clear.

Really good review. So is this worse than Forest Poetry by Ildjarn? Because I'm pretty sure that's the worst black metal album I've heard.

I haven't heard Forest Poetry so I could not say, but this is pretty bad.

That is not to say I do not listen to it on repeat constantly as sometimes i'm in the mood for this sort of thing. Any Black Metal of similar quality usually suffices for such instances of mood, however.

haha can't wait for retired to see this. i still haven't listened to the band, but I like most of the LLN I've heard (Vlad Tepes, Belketre, Seviss, Torgeist). Will probably check this out eventually.

Great review.

good review, although from the description i'd probably like this. i guess it's a matter of tastes.

Band is so, so, so terrible. I stick by my earliest description: playing in a garage during a thunderstorm. With the microphone placed outside of the closed garage door.

They're nothing like the better LLN releases.

Well the average rating for Forest Poetry is like 2.6 I think so I'm pretty sure more people would agree with me and not you.
