SIDE A.)
HALL OF 1000 DEGREDATIONS:

Here THE BLACK SCORPIO UNDERGROUND offers up two blood soaked
slabs of pitch black ritual noise.This stuff sounds fierce and
deadly.Both tracks clock in at a little under ten minutes and
in less than half an hour...They still manage to invoke uneasy
vibes that linger long after.Feedback rings and resonates calling
us into blackened passages like a seductive finger saying "come
closer, drink deeper" Huge walls of sound are created by swirling
riffs and wailing leads.Distorted raspy screams strike out like
fangs filled with venom injecting every vein with poison and Hell
fire.Sparse percussions are used with perfect timing that hit like
sonic booms creating massive quakes of rattling destruction.The air
is heavy with an atmosphere of filth and the sweet incense of decay.
The melodies played on lead strings are disorienting and sound like
a fevered hallucination while the undercurrent of riffs form a whole
other hazy nightmare themselves.Lo-fi chaos that eventually drops into
a surreal transition filled with whispered vocals that sound like someone
reading invocations from an ancient arcane spellbook.Sub-bass rhythms that
mimick the pained beating of a dying heart are heard along with fuzzy electronic
pulses that seem to vibrate in your mind.Samples are applied featuring spoken
female vocals that sound like a bitter witch spitting curses in a shrill and
passionate tone...A speech on loneliness is recited as distorted booms shatter
your senses and shake your bones.Black ambiance is crafted from bass tones that
form rumbling layers that flow like a slow moving, murky river.Ritual bells ring
in the distance over mid-tempo drum beats and grinding electronics.Moody synths
come like deep chanting voices like a ritual about to begin.Bleak Black Noise
with no silver lining in sight.

SIDE B.)
HEIRLOOM:

A crushing wave of dreadful synths rush in and drone on over distant electronic
fields of energy.Heavy industrial percussion's like the slamming of a tomb push
you further in and shut all light from your eyes.Strange layers that sound like
some song you'd hear played on a carnival ride are present but come disfigured
and backwards...Like a mockery of better times and the innocence you've lost
over years of earthly corruption.Grinding electronics and hazy static fill the
air and hang in thick clouds like dust entering your lungs and then all spirals
downward into minimal movements of cold and inhuman ambiance...Dread lingers in
the atmosphere like a funeral in slow motion until spoken samples are heard.The
voice of a man describes the contents of the diary of a serial killer...This is
soon accompanied by distorted noise that seems harsh and soft all at once and
weird fragile tones...As smooth as glass but able to cut and puncture all the
same.Booming Death Industrial percussion's come in pummeling hits that pound
in the grim facts as the voice continues to narrate murders and malevolence.
Suddenly huge droning riffs, slamming metallic percussion's, harsh distorted
raspy screams and dizzying leads hit you like a sack of knives for a brief
but powerful moment of time.It ends in low static as an interrogation sample 
finishes.I am gonna have to flip the tape.This one calls for repeated listens.

AWESOME BLACKENED NOISE DONE RIGHT.FOR FANS OF: DEATHSTENCH/GNAW THEIR TONGUES/
ADERLATING/TREPANAERINGSRITUALEN/T.O.M.B./UTARM/BLUE SABBATH BLACK CHEER/ETC..

8/10
