Plecto Aliquem Capite/As The Sane Crumble/Hypnotic Dirge Records/2010 EP Review


  Plecto  Aliquem  Capite  are  a  band  from  Sri  Lanka  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  with a  musical  style  I  would  describe  as  being  depressive  black  metal  with  elements  of  experimental  and  noise  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2010  ep  "As  The  Sane  Crumble"  which  was  released  by  Hypnotic  Dirge  Records.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  thrown  into  the  music  at  times,  while  the  sound  effects  and  violins  bring  a  very  avant  garde,  noise  and  experimental  sound  to  the  recording,  as  for  the  bass  playing  it  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  depressive  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sounding  with  some  drone  and  thrash  elements  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  at  times  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  recording.

  Vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  depressive  black  metal/harsh  noise  screams  along  with  some  deep  demonic  growls,  while  the  lyrics  cover  suffocation  and  grief,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  heavy,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it.

  In  my  opinion  this  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Plecto  Aliquem  Capite  and  if  you  are  a  very  of  raw  and  primitive  sounding  depressive  black  metal,  you  should  check  out t his  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Disembowelment".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
