Klaaromtesterven – Pyschological Pain [Demo]

klaaromtesterven – pyschological pain [demo]

Info

The Bandcamp-page of this one-man act says that it is from the UK, something I do not dispute, but judging from the Dutch band name it is a bit surprising. Klaaromtesterven is Dutch for ‘Readytodie’. Anyway, the origin of this Black Metal project is of course less important than its musical content.

Klaaromtesterven presents four short songs, of which the longest one is just over three minutes and all tracks together clocks in just under ten minutes. The music sounds rather mechanical, mainly because of the programmed drums, but that only bothers during the first few seconds of the first song, after that it seems to blend in better. The gritty sounding guitars are clearly digitally recorded and gives that mechanical edge as well as the evenly distorted vocals. The strange ambient-like last track with pinging piano gives it a nice ending. A good example of home crafted bedroom Black Metal, which in my book is not a disqualification at all – just try counting the amount of bands that started out this same way. This demo is from a few years ago, so I am wondering whether Klaaromtesterven has recorded anything else or plan to continue this project. I just hope he didn’t take the band name too serious…
