Red Bible Black / Blliigghhtted

 

Cadaver Garden

 

Have you ever had those nightmares that for whatever reason you just can’t seem to escape from? They keep coming back to you night after night after night. The walls close in, everything is pitch black, soon everything seems to quickly be melting around you. You begin hearing maniacal laughter closing in on you and right before you know it you snap awake. You believe that the nightmare is over and that is just the end of it. However, you end up having the same nightmare over and over again night after night and it begins to drive you mad to the point where that is all you think about to the point where your mind snaps. Well, psychotic black metal acts Red Bible Black and Blliigghhtted make sure that with this split that they induce nightmares with this effort.

 

Red Bible Black is from Italy and Blliigghhtted hails from Turkey. These two bands have come together to create a soul damming split for your enjoyment (demise?). Out of the thirteen songs that are thrust down your throat on this split, ten of them belong to Red Bible Black and the final three belong to Blligghhtted. Both bands have very similar styles, but Red Bible Black is more horrifying and nightmare inducing as they focus more on horror than Blliigghhtted does. Instead of being as horrifying,Blliigghhtted is more of the mind paralyzing and soul burning black metal.

 

Once you go through the nightmare that is very prominent through the first ten songs, you have to walk through the darkened abyss of the last three. No matter which way you look at it or try to approach this release you will not leave with your soul in tact. It will be torn to shreds, tattered and torn by the time that you are done.

 

Just like all of the work that the Merdumgiriz label has done and put forth these two bands set themselves apart from the ever darkening and grimy abyss that is black metal. The sound is raw, buzz filled and entirely sinister. Each band sounds like they have been soaking and marinading in evil, raw, pure and pulpy abyssal darkness.

 

There is nothing quite like being faced with pure Satanic evil in the form of music. Music is meant to make you feel something, and if it does then the band that is playing the music is doing their job properly. The feeling that you end up getting from this split is reminiscent of fear. Both bands assault you without warning and eviscerate your very soul from your body only to leave you strung up like a scare crow as they laugh at your pale face. The way that each band attacks stems from unfiltered blistering riffs, ear drum shattering drumming, a nice thick bass, and tormented screaming. Each band has all of those qualities, but the one thing that Red Bible Black does is incorporate samples of tortured screaming to further instill the fact that you are indeed inside of a nightmare.

 

The whole experience is exactly that, it is an experience. The experience is one of torture, pain, suffering and utter darkness. You become shrouded in blackened hell fire and succumbed by the purely darkened abyss and there is nothing you can do to escape it.

Occult Black Metal Zine

 

This  is  a  review  of  a  split  album  between  Italy/Turkey's  Red Bible  Black  and  Turkey's  Bligghhtted  which  was  released  by  Merdumgiriz  and  we  will  start  off  the  review  with  Red  Bible  Black  a  band  that  plays  a  brutal  form  of  satanic  black  metal.

  Their  side  of  the  split starts  out  with  a  very  avant  garde  and  demonic  sounding  intro  that  also  uses  ritualistic  spoken  word  parts  and  a  few  seconds  later  clean  playing  is  added  into  the  music  and  after  the  intro  the  music  goes  for  more  of  a  heavy  death  metal  direction  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  it  brings  in  more  of  a  bestial  black  metal  sound.

  Vocals  are  mostly  bestial  growls  and  blast  beats  can  be  heard  quite  a  bit  in  the  faster  sections  of  the  music  and  the  vocals  also  add  in  a  grim  and  ritualistic  feeling  at  times  while t he  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  the  solos  and  leads  also  remain  true  to  a  blasphemous  style  of  black/death  metal  and  they  also  mix  the  ritualistic,  experimental  and  heavy  parts  together  at  times.

  Red  Bible  Black  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  the raw  and  bestial  black/war  metal  sound  and  mixes  it  with  satanic  death  metal  and  ritualistic  to  create  a  very  evil  and  blasphemous  musical  style,  the  production  on  their  side  of  the  recording  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  cover  Satanism,  Occultism  and  Anti  Christian  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Red  Bible  Black  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  raw,  ritualistic  bestial  black  metal  and  satanic  death  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of  the  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Your  Sons  Into  The  Furnace  Of  Baal"  and  "Kneel  Down  To  The  Altar  Of  Moloch".

  Next  up  is  Bligghhtted  which  continues  the  experimental  black  metal  style  of  previous  recordings.

  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  a  very  fast  and  raw  black  metal  sound  that  uses  a  great  amount  of  grim  screams,  blast  beats  and  melodic  guitar  leads  and  the  songs  also bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  while  the  vocals  almost  get  melodic  at  times  and  most  of  their  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

   You  can  also  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on their  side  of  the  recording  and  as  their  side  of  the  split  progresses  synths  can  be  heard  at  time  and  they  also  take  the  musical  into  an  experimental  direction  and  on  the  second  track  operatic  female  vocals  are  brought  into  the  music  and  on  the  last  track  the  vocals  start  adding  in  death  metal  growls,  depressive  screams  and  an  influence  of  doom  metal.

  Bligghhtted  creates  another  very  experimental  black  metal  recording  with  the  3  songs  they  bring  onto  the  recording  and  all  of  the  tracks  are  very  diverse,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  and  demented  themes.

      In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great sounding  recording  from  Bligghhtted  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  experimental  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of  the  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  "Snakes".

  In  conclusion  I  feel  this  is  a  very  great  sounding  split  and  I  would  recommend  it  to  all  fans  of  experimental  and  satanic  black  metal.
