With bands like Mortespermia, it's pretty easy to be dismissive at first glance. As a Brazilian bedroom black metal project featuring sloppy playing, ear-torturing production and just a general amateurishness, CCCXXXIII's first impression isn't very flattering. The second and third impressions go down much better. As it turns out, Mortespermia is much more than meets the eye. From punk-y to atmospheric, straightforward to nuanced, CCCXXXIII is a surprisingly diverse yet cohesive piece of raw black metal. There are so many unexpected twists and turns throughout, whether it be the jolting bursts of melody or the odd shapes and phrases Grim summons out of his guitar. It has a very endearing kitsch quality about it, much like their forebears Hellhammer. Not everyone while get this or appreciate it, but this release is highly recommended to black metal fans entrenched in the rawer side of the genre.
