From the hinterlands of Scandinavia, comes the return of one of our favorite death industrial acts. Denmark's Destruktionsantalt offers perhaps the project's most spiritually haunting release with Swedenborg. This follows last year's brvtal work, Corpus Invocationem, and adds an even deeper layer of dark ambient that echoes the old Nordic school. Born out of tragedy, Swedenborg has a cinematic feel which carries you through its ominous narrative. From the alluring atmospheres of "Misericodia" and "Halitus" to the more violent, "In Perpetuum", this is a harrowing release that is both agonizing and peaceful.
We are also thrilled to see a vocal appearance by one of our current favorite projects, Military Position. Harriet K. Morgan's ceremonial chants over the sounds of a sweeping afterlife close out a powerful and dreamlike release of ritual electronics.
For us, less is always more and very few acts in the genre have the genuineness and soulfulness of Destruktionsanstalt. The artist has also released some earlier material that is also worthy of your attention. Swedenborg is out now on digital and limited CD format. For more please visit Bandcamp.
