Xzælthu (USA) – Xzælthu II LP
Xzælthu’s 2020 demo incantation is the miserable dreariness of immortal hunger. The eternal ailment of perpetual darkness. A grimoire of morbid spells steeped in a wash of howling dissonance, meandering tremolo melodics of mournful repose, caught in dance of mid-paced percussive cymbal clashing, and vast vocal orations from beyond the void. Lost in the dream labyrinths of the dungeon crypt conjuration, Xzælthu is the spectre at the end of the tunnel’s maw, lunar enchanted claws luminous with the tears of a million martyrs.
