Arrayed Claws

This shit is inspiring as hell. Extreme dissonance is starting to equate to extreme beauty in my mind. Favorite track: Abstract Trap.

XUL//EXCELSI Dit kruip en kruwel, boor in jou bewussyn in met genadelose swerme van ongemaklike riffs en gebruik die negatiewe spasie van die min vokale om oomblikke uitmergelend te maak.

Die eerste 2 is reeds die toegangsprys werd, anemiese gevoel en melodie, met van die sterkste uitvoering in hierdie geur van black metal.

Elke keer wat jy daai tannie op die insekpote se embleem sien, kan jy maar weet jys in vir 'n rit. En met hierdie een sal ek met liefde my stop mis en net aanhou ry. --LD Favorite track: Abstract Trap.

Odiumediae In reference to my favourite track, this album really has abstractly trapped me for the better part of a month now. The first time I listened to it I was amazed by the cold atmosphere, but my personal highlight is how a story began to unfold before my inner eye when I listened to "Abstract Trap". LORN are fantastic musicians and really know how to create atmospheres of smouldering and deeply unsettling, yet utterly fascinating musical terror. Favorite track: Abstract Trap.

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
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

Ltd. CD in jewel box, 8-page booklet with lyrics

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.
