L’Acephale – “Stahlhartes Gehause” – [Parasitic]

Released in 2009, from Portland Oregon. Their first release from being a one man solo project of Set Sothis Nox La, to a 6-piece band. Members are also from Hail, Knelt Rote, Vile Horrendous, Aerial Bombardment, Order of The Vulture, Blood Axis and more. An interview with Set says that this release has a multi-percussive pagan black metal direction with some folk elements. It’s somewhat diverse in its sound, at least for me. It begins with Tibetan singing, you can really visualize the mountains and incense. There’s German singing, the metal sore-throat screams, the driving guitars, rabid drums…but then it’ll take a break into an almost shoe gaze, violin backed gothic tinged vocal run. There’s drone elements, female vocals, intense fury, and hints of industrial, choral and symphonic sounds. A fantastic booklet with runes, glyphs and Germanic folk art, as well as detailed notes and stories.
