Single Review: VANHELGD A Plea For Divine Necromancy by Serafima Okuneva

A Plea For Divine Necromancy
Single taken from their upcoming full length Deimos Sanktuarium, to be released October 12, 2018 on Dark Descent Records
Place of origin: Sweden
Genre: Death/doom metal
Recorded at Studio Underjord with Joona Hassinen

Release date: September 3, 2018
The Swedish band Vanhelgd have announced their latest full-length Deimos Sanktuarium, due out October 12, 2018 (CD, vinyl & digital), in conjunction with Dark Descent Records. With their unwavering style of obscurum death/doom metal, heavily drenched in riffs of dejection and aggression, Vanhelgd is determined to clobber out some of the heaviest yet most forlorn extreme music from recent years. Deimos Sanktuarium is a vibrant work of contempt and apathy, molded in an enraptured state of beautiful grief. The single A Plea For Divine Necromancy shows just how raw and ugly things can get while still being thoroughly enjoyable, though this will be too much for many to digest. Rich in murk and dire atmosphere, it’s canonic with the creepy factor set to maximum. It’s loaded with nasty and jagged riffing and the ridiculously low-register, vile retching pushes it into insanity. The song sports a maggot infested sound and riffs both menacing and memorable with some inspired doom. A Plea For Divine Necromancy has everything a fan of death metal could want except non-stop speed, but there’s enough of that to keep most happy. I love this much and recommend it for all fans of extremely rotten, fetid death metal. -Serafima Okuneva
