You ought to expect the unforeseen; this collection is superb and words came into my psyche as the music streams on rehash for a few times as of now. Bâ’a is a three-piece Black Metal band and “Deus Qui Non Mentitur” is their presentation collection.
Their stuff it’s some way or another a reincarnation of the soul of ’90s Black Metal. The vocals are the most magnetic I’ve heard in some time. A perfect equilibrium of the vile, unpleasant, entrancing, and ruined.
The record is on the short side, checking in at a little more than 36 minutes across six tracks. Two of those tracks are an introduction and outro, which together gobble up two minutes. The album starts typically enough with “Transept” (transept, by the way, is the short cross bar of a cross) which highlights climatic synths, a clanking chime, a seething tempest, and surprisingly some spooky expressed word. Sooner or later in Metal, the congregation chime introduction either becomes iconic or cliché.
The essence of the record bears tribute to a wide scope of Black Metal impacts. The production is on the lo-fi end of the spectrum. It´s surprising that the piano and the smooth bass lines drift through the bloodletting loaning a roomy and melodic air. The harsh, spitting vocals additionally add with this impact. There are likewise minutes when the drum work breaks the blast beat form and investigates a more elegant and refined rhythm.
That´s some good French stuff we got here. (HaCeBo)
