Merda Mundi are a solo project from Belgium that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very raw, misanthropic and nihilistic form of black metal and this is a review of his 2014 album "Vi-Khaos" which was reelased by Tanquam Aegri Somnia.
Dark and atmospheric sounds start off the album before adding in a powerful bass riff which leads up to more of a heavy and melodic musical direction that also introduces high pitched black metal screams onto t h e recording as well as a brief use of spoken word and it leads to a faster direction that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats.
The faster sections of the music display a very raw style of black metal and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of t he songs also bring in a small amount of deep growls and when guitar leads are utilized they are very melodic without ever really turning into solos and some of the tracks also mix the raw and atmospheric parts together and as the album progresses clean playing can be heard in certain sections of the recording.
Merda Mundi creates another black metal album that is still very raw and misanthropic while also being a bit more melodic and atmospheric this time around and you can also hear a great amount of progress in the talent and skills on the musical instruments, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism and Violent themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording form Merda Mundi and if you are a fan of raw and misanthropic black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "In League" "Agnus Satani" and "Ad Te Domine". 8 out of 10.
