STRIBORG
STRIBORG
Mysterious Semblance
(Displeased Records)
78:30min

The old Black Metal cult has infected the whole world in the last 20 years, including far away places like Australia, Brazil and South Africa. So, holding an album in your hands from one of the busiest bands from Down Under, STRIBORG, should no longer surprise. Displeased Records are quite successful during the last 12 months by re-releasing some real classics to the younger Black Metal hordes world-wide (for example BORKNAGAR's debut album, VINTERRIKET etc.) and within this month you get the chance to get your hands on the 2004 / 2005 STRIBORG's albums "Trepidation" and "Mysterious Semblance" which had been available only on a strictly limited basis so far. STRIBORG's music is raw atmospheric Black Metal which due to the main instrument, the keyboard, is not seldom given the impression to listen to a forgotten BURZUM release! Sin-Nanna, the only band member, is rejecting any kind of contact and interviews so his sole expression is his music and honestly speaking "Mysterious Semblance" is not a classic release but a step forward compared with STRIBORG's 2005 album "Trepidation ". The 9 tracks are offering misanthropic Black Metal which easily extend the 15 minutes limit, so the overall length of nearly 80 should not surprise. The sound is extremely underground but Sin-Nanna is concentrating on the creation of a pure misanthropic atmosphere and this time the guitar and drum section is supporting this (a major point which unfortunately couldn't be resurrected on their next release "Trepidation"!). To make a long story short, if you are interested in STRIBORG's creations try "Mysterious Semblance", because the next winter is nearby! www.displeasedrecords.com
