SGUAGUARAHCHRISTIS – Der Nacht (CD)
Listening to Sguaguarahchristis’ cold black metal is a pretty frightening experience with their down tuned guitar riffs and raspy but tortured vocals, which invoke a hellish feeling deep within the gut. You can’t help but feel depressed, dark, and even suicidal, on this release, “Der Nacht”. “Der Nacht” touches on the subject of depression, darkness and suicide, but in a personal way, to the point of invoking such feelings into your soul. Keep in mind, this album unleashes a total cloud of darkness over the listener, so this is something I would not recommend to the weak-minded individual. The black metal music on here is very primitive, raw and ancient sounding, kind of brings to mind, picturesque scenes of a battle littered field with dead corpses lying everywhere in sight. Tons of corpse paint, bullet belts and spikes come to mind when listening to the horrid nuances on “Der Nacht”.
Burzum, Mayhem, Darkthrone, early Enslaved, Emperor come to mind when listening to Sguaguarahchristis’ nightmarish and cold black metal.
