Orewoet – Afrodisiacum Der Vroomheid [Re-Release]

orewoet – afrodisiacum der vroomheid [re-release]

Info

Originally released in 2016, it took the band and labels up to 2021 to get this album out on vinyl as well. But whether to see this is a delayed vinyl-release or an actual re-release, that is of no real relevance. What is relevant is the music that is presented by this Dutch band that, judging from their music, has a weak spot for Finnish Black Metal.

On this 5-tracks-in-half-an-hour debut full-length, the band gives you a demonstration in how Finnish Black Metal should sound. The rocking, mid-tempo Black Metal with furious outbursts to give it all the necessary dynamics as well as the typical screechy vocal-style are very much in line with bands like Satanic Warmaster, Sargeist, mid-period Behexen or a little less gritty sounding Horna. So, you’ll find no originality on ‘Afrodisiacum Der Vroomheid’ but the songs are played with such convincing dedication that they are not inferior to their Finnish examples. The perfect modern production makes the songs sound clean enough to give all instruments a fair chance to shine while the guitars are just raw and sharp to keep every Black Metal fan hooked.

Now this album is already six years old, I would say it is about time for a new recording to surface. Everything on ‘Afrodisiacum Der Vroomheid’ just screams for a follow-up, not sure what these guys are waiting for…
