The Constellatory Practice
(Ván Records - 2018)
||The Dutch duo Urfaust is back with a full-length album called The Constellatory Practice. They invite you into their sound universe of ambient sounds and black metal parts. Doomy they kick of with Doctrine Of Spirit Obsession. The track is more than 12 minutes long and they create a dark, threatening atmosphere. The droning sounds, wordless vocal parts can give you the creeps. Very intense!
Behind The Veil Of The Trance Sleep is not as doomy, but more intense and.... It will make you feel uneasy. Later the atmosphere changes, but is still dark and it's now A Course In Cosmic Meditation. It's hypnotic, only the sparse drumming of Vrdrbr is preventing one to get lost, to drown in the dark threatening synthizer sounds.
False Sensorial Impressions is based more in black metal than the previous songs, but it's even more... unsettling. It's haunting. It's the soundtrack for your worst nightmare! The other long track Trail Of The Conscience Of The Dead is based on slow thunderous, droning riffs. IX vocals have something elevated... like you listen to a apocalyptical mass
Eradiction Through Hypnotiv Suggestion is the closer of this chapter. In my opinion not as strong as other tracks. But the music of Urfaust is creating emotions and everybody might feel different emotions while listening.
Some might think Urfaust is boring, coz it's very minimalistic and in a way repetitive, but if you give the tracks the chance to develop and to grow on you, the atmosphere is getting you! It's the soundscape for your nightmares!
I don't have much information about Urfaust, the Dutch duo is active as Urfaust since 2003 and released 2 full-length albums in 2004 and 2005. Since then they did an EP and some splits. Now they have a new EP, a 2-track one called IX Einsiedler with 18+ minutes running time.
