𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Combing fast-cold tormenting atmospheric blackened repetitive riffage & slow doomy melancholic moods & rhythms

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Signature snarling & raspy vocals, with other multifaceted styles and tones

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Mixture of galloping-pounding dense & slow tempo drum patterns & blast-beats

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Stromptha is the one-person atmospheric black metal band project of J who originated in the far north of Qaanaaq, Greenland but later relocated to Toulouse, France


Endura Pleniluniis ingenious and magical release of six songs (each song are over nine minutes long), with a runtime of over fifty-six minutes, the first moment of hitting the play button, the listener is welcome to a two and half-minute warm melody of the guitar work with a subtle atmospheric soundscape & spiritly hymn (with medieval French feel to voice), that captures the listener's addition and mood straightway


After hitting the three-minute mark, the mood of the first song changes very suddenly into a cold blackened atmospheric tone of darkness and despair, with chanting and shrieks of black metal vocals, pulsing beats and memorable, warm riffs, then moving onto the other songs that spiritly wraps around the listener, like a blanket of darkness and despair, with an express nightmare to one's darkest side of one's mind


With only nine songs, with one person at the helm, I love this kind of releases, shows any much love and passion goes into the music and trap in their own wildness of lonesome inside a  forest/woods or some kind, another form of the magical realm/vortex, in that world, capturing & creating something unique and personly to them, but enjoyed by others, this release captures that essence,


Within the Parallel world of these nine amazing mind-shattering songs that just don't mix icy cold brutalization of black metal with the sad moods of doom metal, but adds that Gothic morbid of sadness expression, clean melodies, ambient-ish soundscapes other instrumentations, eerie, occultism and medieval feel with other atmospheric feelings & sounds to the mix, adding outstanding evoking singing ranges and tones, that will take your mind into deepest part the forest, where one's soul & madness, shall be forever lost in the darkness parts of the forest/woods.


Another thing, I do enjoy about this release and artist work, is that the lyrics are all in (guessing in) French, just adds that extra memorable sensation


*Just take a listen * * grim and frostbitten*

*outstanding* * *entertaining & well-executed* *mind-blowing*
