ANCIENT MOON
ANCIENT MOON
Vvltvre
(Satanath Records)
28:42min

The three piece ANCIENT MOON is an international trio with musicians hailing from three different countries, i.e. Belgium, France and Switzerland. Hiding behind only one initial, the band members manage to remain anonymous. And after listening to their first release “Vvltvre”, I can imagine that this happened for a reason, since no one really knows who's responsible for this waste of raw materials. The album has only one long song, surprisingly not titled 'Vvltvre' but 'Preastigitum Altareas'. Running for about half an hour, this song is an absolute nerve wrecker. The production is so raw and metallic that it sounds like trains colliding when the band is in full boring swing. To calm down every now and then, there are interspersed pseudo ambient keyboard parts that completely kill any nerve of mine. And as if this would not be enough, some keyboard effects of the most mind-numbing kind kill some of better moments of this tedious chaos. Sorry, as much as I like some of the contemporary Black Metal bands, as much ANCIENT MOON are none of these.
