EP Review: Sørgelig "Slaves Of Tomorrow" (Repose Records) by Corban Skipwith

Band: Sørgelig
Location: Volos
Country: Greece
Genre: Black metal
Format: Digital album
Label: Repose Records (UK)
Release date: October 5, 2021
You know, I love how the first thing it says in the description of this album is
‘The world is Fucked and Sørgelig knows it!’ I don’t think you could find a better description of this album’s nature of you tried.
-Slaves Of Tomorrow
So, this is the latest EP by the band who present to us 3 new tracks ready to blow the minds of listeners.
When I said the statement above Is the perfect description of the album it’s because you can hear the intensity and the violence in their voice! You can hear the raw hatred, the despair, the brutality visualised in each word screamed, each sentence carved from the soul, each song drowned in disgust.
I love the strong Black Metal influences presented in this EP, it reminds me of the original Norwegian Era of Black Metal which to regular readers will know that’s my all time favourite.
This EP is so raw and rough around the edges, it’s unrefined and ruthless the way an album of this caliber is meant to be.
I say this a lot on this platform but music inspired by emotions can create the most powerful of musical experiences and this is exactly what we are seeing here!
If your looking for an album that feels real and down to earth then you can’t get any better then this. The vocals are terrifying (especially the female that features towards the end) the instrumentation is brash and unforgiving and the sonic aesthetic is something dark and void of light, if that sounds like your thing then give these guys a go! -Corban Skipwith
