PERVERSUS STIGMATA "Interstellar Hatred Void"

http://kronosmortus.hu

Ive discovered Russia recently as a hidden golden mine of metal music. There are surprisingly many great bands, therefore I took the debut album of Perversus Stigmata of Moscow in my hands from my pillar box with full optimism. Their name is not the most alluring, but it would be a mistake to have prejudices against the music. As a result of their music, it doesnt contain irrelevant matter, its pleasant, harmonic black metal music. Before discussing this album, one more sentence about the promo. Its really a gentle, nice, attractive promo, its hard to find such a great one. Apart from the usual paper box, we can find a booklet as well in the pack (actually its a complete equipment), next to the CD. So as for the cover, I could tell a bit more about it. Thanks to More Hate Productions for it. As its known, the frame of this genre is quite limited, so we cant expect new, innovative features. As for their music, there arent epic, progressive, keyboard-oriented themes which go beyond those frames of this music, and shock the listeners. Its a traditional stuff, but despite these facts, a slight own atmosphere can be felt of this music. Mainly their native language is the cause of it. Of course the vocals arent too articulated, but its still easy to notice the difference. Maybe it would disturb some of the listeners a bit, but in my opinion, its not a matter, and since I like the country, it was good to hear something different from usual. Ive already told about the own taste of the Russian language. This way of speaking includes a healthy strictness and confidence, which totally fit the rough music. Our regular readers could already met the name of Dimmu Borgir in my articles. Ive found some bands music similar to the Norwegian bands at a few occassions. I cant avoid this comparison this time again, I have to say that the opening song, Hate is too obviously influenced by Dimmu Borgir, though this copying is not that impudent. With its mid tempo pulse, this song can remind us to the eternal black anthem, Puritania. But theres no use of deeper evaluation. There are some various themes in some other songs, too, like some moments of Silence, or the drum themes of closing song Death. But most of them are dominated by the blastbeats and the mysanthropic shriek of Storm (vocals/guitar). Though I was never interested in space, and I wouldnt call the cover beautiful, its easy to notice how well it illustrates their hate of this universe. As for this kind of music, the sounding is close to perfect. Its built well, the listeners can enjoy it, its more than the pure distorted wiggling. Despite these, even the constantly arguing true guys wont blame the band with unvariousity, since the vocals and the drums are duly scratchy, and they more or less kept their usual raw, crypt-like sounding. I only missed some really excellent, memorable moments. In my opinion, some folk Russian instruments would improve this music, I expect some moments like this for their second album. A stronger emphasizing of the Russian language would make the music more unique. However, they wouldnt follow the trends of the genre with it, some people wouldnt prefer it and would have complaints about it, thats sure. But those who are attracted to that kind of musical orientation, will like the Russian language use. I hope they dont want to get stuck in the swamp of average bands. The fighters of black metal composed a fair album, the fans of this genre, and those who want to know a band like this, it may be worthy to get acquainted with this CD. If there are some spare 1000 Ft banknotes in the wallet, and some space in the shelves, its worthy to buy this album. And Im quoting a slogan from the lyrics to close my article: By Hate To World Domain!

PERVERSUS STIGMATA "Interstellar Hatred Void"

http://www.metal-observer.com

PERVERSUS STIGMATA, a Symphonic Black Metal band hailing from Russia, creates fairly enjoyable atmospheric Metal, but dont really stick out. The symphonic samples sound a tad cheap and even bands like WINDS OF PLAGUE include samples that sound less synthesized. The rest is pretty standard Black Metal raspy vocals, hammering blast beats, and organic production. Besides the symphonic elements, I felt there was something else missing from Interstellar Hatred Void, besides a less corny name for the album. The musicianship is competent, but thats about it. The raw energy that usually accompanies Black Metal is definitely lacking here, and without it, all thats left is dissonant chords. The record as a whole isnt bad, however. The second half definitely picks up in excitement with, oddly enough, stronger and raspier vocals as well as more complex drumming. In Silence much of the sub-par symphonic elements are replaced with catchier and heavier riffs. Not much more can be said about this albumuntil these guys get a little more original, their stuff will pass by unnoticed. Its tough being a new Black Metal band, so all the advice I can offer for these guys is to give the listener a little more to listen to more passion, more hate. All the skill and musical ability is already there, now they just need more originality. To be fair, this is PERVERSUS STIGMATAs debut album, so improvement will surely come in time. Recommended songs: Silence, Perversus Stigmata.

Russian Symphonic Black Metallers Perversus Stigmata saw their 2009 debut album 'Interstellar Hatred Void' being released through More Hate Productions from Volgograd, Russia. With Dimmu Borgir influences and Russian Black Metal at the reigns, Perversus Stigmata take it in their stride to develop a unique perspective on the highly criticised genre. The symphonies surrounding the Black Metal atmosphere created resembles a journey amongst the darkest corners of life and in doing so they fulfill the 'Interstellar Hatred Void'.

PERVERSUS STIGMATA "Interstellar Hatred Void"

http://www.voicesfromthedarkside.de/

Here's another Russian underground Black Metal act called PERVERSUS STIGMATA that had all the potential to make things happening for them, but unfortunately the band's current status nowadays is 'on hold'. They probably have split up for good already because it's nearly been 5 years since the band's debut album "Interstellar Hatred Void" was released on Russian More Hate Productions, in 2009 precisely. Symphonic Black Metal is something, in which PERVERSUS STIGMATA at least tried to make their grande home run on their debut album but in a way, succeeded at that partly only, I am afraid. It's the keyboards that in my opinion seem to be out of place within the songs, at times not really fitting in - and only giving sort of a feel the keyboard player didn't have much of a clue how she should get them played, so that they could be in balance with the rest of the instruments. In fact, I believe without the keys' so dominating presence on "Interstellar Hatred Void", the album would have worked slightly better, just giving a better impact on the listeners. The other instruments do synchronize each other well though, creating a somewhat ear-pleasing wholeness as far as PERVERSUS STIGMATA's mostly fast-paced Black Metal is concerned. Vocalist and guitarist Storm has also done a nice imitation from the voices of Vorph of SAMAEL and Taneli Jarva of SENTENCED (the "North From Here" era only) with his raspy and croaking vocal delivery on the record. Like I said already, there's definitely lots of budding potential in PERVERSUS STIGMATA, so it's kinda sad actually if the band's debut album "Interstellar Hatred Void" was their swansong in the band's history. Well, time shall obviously tell though...
