HAVOHEJ “Kembatinan Premaster” CD

HAVOHEJ (US) “Kembatinan Premaster” CD (Hell’s Headbangers) 9€

It feels good when old fucking bands strike back and surprise us with forward thinking works! Havohej, the forefathers of USBM, in their experimental 2nd full-length break new ground. “Kembatinan Premaster” is a blackened, experimental, noisy album. To my ears it’s black metal as fuck, but the more conservative listeners will be estranged for sure.

The tracks are based on the harsh vokill delivery and the pounding, often ritualistic drums. The strings are in general a chaotic mess which provides the background. In a completely different register, this approach has reminded me of Last Days Of Humanity’s “Putrefaction In Progress”, where the highlights of the music are the vocals and the drums, not the guitars. Anyway, as far as I’m concerned this is a highly recommended blackened fix for your ears!

Feel like ordering? Here.
