A split with two one-man projects, one hailing from USA and the other from Australia. Both on the lo-fi side of Black Metal, yet one more raw than the other.
Klanen started recently in 2020, but already has 2 EPs, 3 splits (with Saidan, Unholy Vampyric Slaughter Sect and a 4-way one) and 1 full-length as achievements. As said, the production is lo-fi and raw but Klanen does present his 3 tracks with a good amount of melody and ambience, although “The Last Weeping Star” is an instrumental track. An impressive performance and I suggest you check out the lengthy (almost 9 minutes) epic opener “Transcending the Spectral Realm”.
Ceremonial Crypt Desecration is far more raw and noisy than Klanen, with the buried guitars, distortion and obscure noise-covered vocals. Although Krigsgaldr is full into the 90s Black Metal with his Ceremonial Crypt Desecration, it is possible to hear it less because of the sound.
Still, fans of Raw Black Metal, this is a split to keep an eye on. (Ricardo)
