Album of the Week!
An album overflowing with insane riffs, phenomenal drumming and seriously impressive songwriting.
In the now burgeoning French black metal scene it's hard to stand out from the crowd.With bands like Blut Aus Nord, Deathspell Omega & Merrimack putting French black metal firmly on the map you have to do something truly special to get yourself noticed.Parisian chaos demons Aosoth have done just that with 'V: The Inside Scriptures'. Known as the second project from Antaeus vocalist/lyricist MkM, Aosoth is a force to be reckoned with in its own right. The music is raw and dense, the guitars fire out chaos and some seriously catchy riffs as the drums assault you with blastbeats and at times with old school death metal style of drumming. Dynamic and the vocals are absolutely sinister. The sound is almost suffocating, holding you down and squeezing the breath out of you with black sludgy noise.
Aosoth is a dark female force in the pantheon of the Order of the Nine Angles. Vocalist MkM has stated that Aosoth has taken its name from a deity represented with an arrow in her heart. Despite the goddess' power and might, she is unable to remove the arrow without killing herself, which is an aspect that has fascinated the members of the band, something that is also apparent from the covers of the last two albums. It is fitting, therefore, to think that V: The Inside Scriptures describes the herculean process of removing the arrow, and opening up oneself to the tragedy of mortality, signaled by the decaying heartbeat in closing anthem "Silver Dagger and the Breathless Smile". Will this be the end of Aosoth? It is not certain, but through this process of attempting to set oneself free of this torment, the band has produced its greatest work. \m/
