CORVUS REX:(BLACK CROW KING/PROJECT:VOID/NDE)
VOCALS/GUITARS/KEYS
XERXEES BANE:(PIGRAT)
KEYS/BEATS/LOOPS/SAMPLES
I.) THANATOS:
This is basically an introduction into Armageddon.A sonic
boom of harsh deep distortion filled with a quaking undercurrent,
setting a basic rythm of sorts.Electronics sound like brass horns
signaling a time of war.Or perhaps Gabrial finally decided to sound
that ancient trumpet of his.Apocalyptic spoken samples similar to
those in many GNAW THEIR TONGUES tracks help to make a point of the
severity of what's to come.Punishing waves of black static swarm
overhead and blot out the skies as a sign that it has begun.
II.) SPIRITS:
Multiple layers of lo-fi noize gather and fester into a living disease.
Next we are molested by huge blasts of harsh static covering up distorted
metallic pounding as if trying to hide a terrible secret.Rythms struggle
to catch their breath in the hot smoke of burning air.A massive composite
golem awakens and rises from out of the deep.It's teeth and nails a mess
of mangled barbed wire.It's breath a hiss of rust and it's body a monstrous
Frankenstein composed of fallen structures, sharp shrapnel and corroded metal.
This living weapon them proceeds to trample all it it's path with no emotion
and even less remorse.Vocals that sound like early DARKTHRONE but sung with
the pace and delivery of early VON take the listener by surprise.At first they
really through me off as they are not filtered through any effects at all as
is almost always the case in this genre.Raw and abrassive to an extreme.It might
take some getting used to and sound odd at first...but what's the point of music
if it's all the same shit?Layer upon layer of controlled distortion and feedback
spread through your veins like sickle cells attacking all balance and order.This
is some seriously brutal stuff.Misanthropic to the point of genocide.Once again
trumpets of war blare loud as panzer tanks roll in a clean up.Judgement day
mother fuckers.
III.) CRIME:
Deep bass movements that have more in common with Doom Metal than death industrial
infiltrate like a foreign sickness.Wailing lead guitars howl like ravenous wolves
set free to run rampant across lands once dominated by civilization.Back-masked
synths mimicking distorted guitars or perhaps vice versa add a melancholic vibe
to the whole piece.Downtuned vocals come as depressive chants and amp up the sense
of sadness and mourning to a point that Depressive Black Metal bands would be envious.
Mid-tempo drums echo through endless vaults of despondent woe.Massive waves of guitar
doom in generous amounts of distortion blanket the land as blackened vocals billow fourth
like smoke from countless chimneys.Even with all of this FURY 161 manages to make this
sound absolutley beautiful.There is so much emotion put into this that one can hardly
bare it.The painful sting of every tragedy ever witnessed in human history being remembered
by every man, woman and child in unison.
IV.) OPEN WIDE:
The entire mood makes a complete change.Distorted industrial drum loops stomp in a
mid-paced semi-break-beat fury.Walls of distortion like raging rapids and ashen
vocals in a thick air of bone-dust and death.This is really similar to a lot of
TREPANERINGSRITUALEN but with the sonic decay of DEATHSTENCH or a denser version
of DEMONOLOGISTS.Winds of armageddon spill out as a mawing void opens wide.Crunching
drums return louder this time.It sounds like endless rows of troops marching through
end time destruction.Armed to the teeth.Teeth they bare in rage and purpose.
V.) RAGE:
Synths moan as they lurk in distorted depths.Cymbals shatter any peace that was left
in the air as giant riffs churn out blackened vibes of slow death and decay.The vocals
sound fucking horrid and come in raspy croaks of pure raw rage.Dark ambience dwells in
the distance as if monitoring the entire proceding with a twisted grin.It is as if FURY
161 textured this with 100% concentrated hatred.Disgust and contempt.We all get pissed
the fuck off at some point or another, and some of us even have to seek "professional
help" for our anger issues...But FURY 161 are beyond any level of "help" anyone could
ever provide.These guys are death-row serious and looking to take out every mother
fucker they can before execution day.
VI.) BLACK HEART ATTACK:
Dissonant violins play on woefull strings joined by huge orchestral synths smeared
with static.Mighty riffs of blackened doom crank out shaking each valley and hillside.
Imagine the despondent dirges of FUNERARY CALL and WOLVSERPENT mixed with the destructive harshness of ADERLATING.Strange glass-like sounds linger in the distance
as glacial riffs drift on and die out.All this was merely an intro into the second movement.
Hard industrial drums with a static crunch blast on joined by epic synths and symphonic strings.
A layer of distortion cloaks all like a pale mist that just sort of exists but never overtakes
or takes away from the other sounds present.Dreary leads lurk around in a shambling existence
and a second blast of industrial drumming accompanies the first.Huge booms like tribal drums
of war played by native machines.This sounds like something you could charge into battle to.
There are arangements and melodies burried here that sound like more mainstream industrial
or even symphonic black metal..Only they are totally corrupted just by presentation and the
sounds that accompany them.It's like FURY 161 is deconstructing popular music and feeding it
to the underground in triumphant glory.
VII.) ARMAGEDDONS MAW:
This track comes as a complete onslaught..Low quiet bass serves as a misleading little intro
and then we are cast down into pits of endless destruction.There is a lot going on here to
fuck up the listener.Earth ending static and distortion like the world is being split down
the middle.Mechanical noize like the heavy lowering of gates to deploy the troops of holocaust.
The heavy footfalls of a billion pairs of combat boots running across this battlefield
that was once our homes and neighborhoods.Vocals like an early 90's scandinavian Black
Metal attack warn us that a storm is coming.If this was just a breeze and the storm has
yet to arrive then you better start praying to your God's and cross your fucking fingers
while they're still attatched to your hands.
VIII.) BURN IT DOWN:
A slow inferno consumes the world in roaring waves of burning static.Drums pound the
like hammers of the Gods falling upon giant anvils.The blacksmiths of stories past
have re-awaken to forge steel out of pure darkness.Putrid vocals puke across the
land like drops of acid corroding and disentigrating all they come in contact with.
The amount of destruction on this album is ungodly.Weird playful tones revel in sick
delight like children playing in a falling rain of blood and gore.Wailing guitar feedback
is unleashed and goes fucking nuts like a drug crazed maniac on his first high after a
long relapse.By the time this passes you will be left wondering how the hell FURY 161
could possibly continue their murderous rampage for three more tracks...What could
possibly be left to destroy after these first eight tracks of pure obliteration?
Your about to find out...
IX.) SAVIOURS:
Regardless of what the title implies...There will be no glorious savior to set the
captives free.Salvation will only come with death and cleansing of the plague on
this world that is humanity.This track fucking stomps and is probably my favorite
on the album.Absolutely punishing hard industrial rythms under clouds of black
static and ripping winds of mass distortion.The vocals are louder here and at least
twice as intense as on previous tracks.I haven't heard anything this pissed and
disgusted in this way since the days of church burnings and grave desecration.
FURY 161 once again sweeps through and inflicts a thourough eradication of every
last remaining life form.This is an apocalyptic crusade lead by a band come to rule
with an iron fist of dominance.Everywhere you look there is nothing but atrocity,
destruction,death and disease.At the end Corvus Rex declares that you are to bow
down...For they are your saviours...Idk guys...You better do as he says...I think
he's serious.
X.) FACE DOWN:
Line up execution style fuckers...That's right, up against the wall.Now kiss
the ground and do as your told if you want this to be as quick and painless
as possible.This one is closer to a more traditional power electronics/death
industrial song.Dense noize and crunching distortion with slight traces of
rythm and tempo.Vocals that hang above the minimal noize in a more traditional
delivery that we have all come to know in love.That being said..FURY 161 still
do this in their own style and their style is simple.Raw and aggressive.Choked
vocals with no effects...Just pure pain and multiple layers and textures..More
than your average band or project would use actually all massed together for
your listening enjoyment,death and annihilation.
XI.) TEARS:
A fitting outro comes as sad violins and moaning sub-bass movements.The hiss
of static and cries of feedback.Murky bass riffs of pure doom and agony tuned
ultra low in drone doom style.Slight hints of distant funeral-paced drumming
and a thick atmosphere of total dread.This entire track feels fucking miserable.
Like having to trudge through a bad day at your wits end.Funeral service synths,
Rattling chains and ground shaking distortion announce that it's time for burial.
As your slowly lowered into the charred soil that remains Corvus Rex says a eulogy
for you and the rest of your deceased race.Countless funerals like this same scene
being copied and multiplied stretch far past the horizon in every direction.The
once beautiful earth is now nothing but a mass grave for you and your kind.
Enjoy the pine-box...Might as well get comfortable.
A REALLY INTERESTING AS WELL AS INTENSE DEBUT...I AM EXCITED TO SEE WHAT
THE FUTURE HOLDS FOR FURY 161...THIS WILL BE A TOUGH ONE TO TOP:
7.5/10
