Temple Of Torturous
One-man blackened doom metal assault, TOTAL NEGATION, will unleash its third full-length, "Zeitzeuge", this June via Sweden-based Temple Of Torturous Records.
The follow-up to the 2013-issued "Zur Späten Stunde | Zeiträume", which The Liar Of Filth fittingly dubbed a "dark and challenging, yet ultimately very rewarding listening", maintains the cold, eerie elements of its predecessor. The integration of instruments like the melodica and the vibraphone still intact, on "Zeitzeuge" master craftsman Wiedergaenger allows more breathing room and breadth in his compositions. Still cold, depressive and atmospherically corrosive, Wiedergaenger manages to merge primal black metal, doom and krautrock elements into a sound that’s at once lush, confounding and apocalyptic. Cold, dire, twisted, diseased and bedecked in Wiedergaenger’s intense German storytelling, "Zeitzeuge" relays the story of a contemporary witness, who breaks under the pressure of controlling the life and death of others.
