Üüberirdh (Lugubria)

First thoughts about one man Black Metal bands are kinda, let's say biased. Over the years it turned out to be highly interesting for some people to not be able to play their instruments well, but make a “project” out of those weaknesses. Give it a mystic name and pretend that the dark lord himself and your suicidal personality forced you into this situation. Because all the music existing just won’t fulfill your personal relation to the darkness and thoughts about how to handle life and a guitar in a proper way. With WYRGHER from Zürich (Switzerland) it’s the very opposite. That guy knows how to play his instruments. He knows how to create a story. He knows how to place samples right and he is definitely in company with some mystic creatures of the dark. With “Üüberirdh” which means something like demonic or supernatural, he stretches the bow from atmospheric gloom to orthodox hatred and experimental Jazz like outbreaks. And he does it incredibly well balanced. It’s that kind of record which lets you sink into a dreary nothingness but you won’t hit the ground because it has no need to convince or intercept you. It’s there and you have to take it. If you want it to inflame. “Üüberirdh” feels as if you have been taken on a trip to the Dead Sea with ARCKANUM, BURZUM and WORMLUST. And a Swedish guy is coming too. I advise this highly entertaining record to everyone who still likes evil atmospheric Black Metal but doesn’t want to talk about the spirits of nature with middle class city kids.
