It is about damn time for Bane to visit this page and with it unleash a wicked wind of haunting atmospheres and wraithlike energy. Necrodeath Ritual is short yet deliciously sweet. As always, Bane always astounds with their ambience alone, building up or exiting with stirring sounds. However, they are like a force of nature, calm and harmonious one moment, a cascading nightmare the next. Absolutely incredible work album after album.
This is a split with Neftaraka (whom I am shamefully unfamiliar with however I will fix that soon) but I am focusing this showcase on the Bane side of things. Melodic, black, and captivating, this portion of the split is a must for anyone seeking some tracks that rival those I love from the OST of Jin-Roh, while the black metal enthusiast will not be left without. The showcase track for this week will be In A Dying World (switching the blog track to The Final Destination for bonus effect).
The links below will provide the album rundown so give it a listen from beginning to end, let yourself be taken elsewhere, allow your mind to wander and sink into the deep. As always, a thanks to the Encyclopaedia Metallum for offering so much to those of us who chase and call the Metal. Now, go out, into that dying world, find those wraiths you can relate, and wail together while the moon still glows.
