Snyjxr This album is indeed unique and very strange. I haven't heard any other black metal music that sounds like this. These guys are very creative in their songwriting! It's a very, very good album!! It's haunting and asphyxiating! Favorite track: Toybodïm.

Sekator Absolutely STUNNING atonal black metal. This band's imagination makes the stand out above the crowd.

The best black metal I have heard in a long time. Favorite track: Disharmonic Feticism.

D.L. Unbelievably ferocious black metal. This is the perfect mix of old and new - it incorporates a lot of styles of dissonant riffing that didn't exist 10 years ago, but there are parts of this that would feel right at place in the heart of the 90s Norwegian scene. Simultaneously very unfriendly and extremely catchy, with tasteful and beautiful ambient passages. Basically my favorite black metal release, by far, from the past couple years or so. You NEED this. Favorite track: Abstract Trap.

Dirk Bergstrom Strange and disturbing music. Abstract Trap builds from "yeah, whatever" to "OMGWTF I love this" in about a minute and a half. Favorite track: Abstract Trap.

about

Two years after the revelatory “Subconscious Metamorphosis” album, Italy's LORN are back with “Arrayed Claws”, probably their more psychotic and violent work to date. The album features 5 tracks that perfectly exemplify LORN's evolutionary path within the black metal field.

As it was with its predecessor, “Arrayed Claws” is an accumulation of ultra-electric and dissonant melodies standing out against colossal guitar-walls, often shattering into psychedelic, mind-expanding dark ambient codas. But where “Subconscious Metamorhposis” was a transcendental mental journey towards a superior illumination, LORN's new album looks more like a physical and desperate odyssey through the regions of Death, an “abstract trap” through which to sink into an unforgiving hell that corrupts the flesh and mutilates the spirit.

That's exactly what happens in “Toybodïm” and “Süt-aq-Köl”, two songs inspired by the Altaian mythology, two stages of a purification path. The first track takes its name from a black lake where the souls of the dead fall and become larvae; the second is a lake of milk where the spirits get purified, a placenta for the newborns. The transition between these two tracks and the towering atmospheric conclusion of “Aus Nebel Turm” leaves the listener beaten and dismayed, with the painful awareness of being only a grain of nothing, lost in the unending and mysterious fogs of Existence.

Track Name: Disharmonic Feticism
intentness
so that nothing correspond
intolerance to the familiar
orgasmic grate
reposing trust in the lag
like an addicting remand
misaligning spring of disorder
and his prolific pollen
will strangle this illusion
to fool the motionless ring of our Hour
Track Name: Abstract Trap
arrayed claws
waiting for your sleep
warnings chocked
by frantic breaths
while
tireless hands
carving ruts
that tomorrow
a masked insight
will offer
the illusion of your will
while roaming them
taking confidence
into the dormant labyrinth
enshrouded
by eager fates
between 1000 shining dawns
like blades
Track Name: Toybodïm
miserable parasite
the cowardice inebriates your void
hidden haughtiness
allegiance frighten your rotten self
envy is your fuel
unable to fight
addicted slander
agog to betray
for a minute of attention
scandalized like a pharisee
when is time to harvest
your seeded rotten mud
tasting for an instant
the same flavour of your blind infamy
Track Name: Süt-aq-Köl
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Aus Nebel Turm
