Review Summary: #DICKSOUT

A day before my 27th birthday the earth suffered a devastating blow when the almighty Harambe was struck down in his prime. Robbed of his life force by the cantankerous blitzkrieg of humankind, the beloved Optimus Harambe left the world to the dismay of millions. Much like when the famed, beautiful god Baldr was swept away from the Norse gods and goddesses by the bastard heathen Loki.

Months after the legend of Harambe spread across the mortals of earth like wildfire, the restless draugrs of ancient lore had awakened by the witches of the black forest. Crawling out of the catacombs of Kakariko Village's legendary graveyard with melancholy fury that would not be so easily subdued, a few ghastly spirits aligned their chakras together and haunted the musical landscape with a three track EP of gengarian black metal. Together, they were known as Forest of Harambe. Their EP, produced by the legendary gargoyle Goliath, saw the band performing highly atmospheric black metal influenced by the early 90's Norwegian scene. What was once thought as a musical tribute is in reality something much, much grimmer. It was a call to arms for the Jiralhanae to rise up and attack the plague known as humanity.


Opening track "I Am The Harambe" sets the tone for this spectral EP. Muffled drumming, harrowing shrieks and blistering riffage, all enshrouded in it's anti-pokemonic messages and lo-fi production, turn the once loyal creatures against their former masters. The much loved Bill quickly turns to a pile of gorey rubble as the Eevee clan decapitate and disembowel their ex leader. Pallet Town was razed to the ground as the noble Charizard flies above, channeling his best Drogon impersonation as he slew his former master Ash. "Dicks Out" marks the moment where the pokemon, gargoyles, man-eater bugs, wights, brutes, orcs, urak-hai, and dragons storm across the plains of Gorgoroth and unify in honor of Harambe to lay siege to the petty mortal realm. Not even Lady Targaryen's fireproof skin could prevent her from escaping the onslaught. All had perished. The third and final track "Den Gratende Primat" is a somber ambient instrumental, a swan song to a now dead, cold, lifeless and Harambeless world.........
