Editorial Reviews

"Drought" has the sour taste of the inexorable. It is a musical journey through the last moments before disaster hits. This recording displays some of the most lethal songwriting ever witnessed from this cult band while retaining their unmistakable sound.

Even though I don't really like ranking bands, if I had to, I would pick Deathspell Omega as one of the best black metal bands going currently. Actually when listening to any Deathspell Omega release, be it a full-length album or an EP, I am inclined to think of them as the most creative black metal band in the world -- their music is simply astonishing. Part of this probably stems from the fact that they are among the most enigmatic bands around. They do not have a website. They do not tour. They do not give interviews. Rather, they say everything they want to say through their music, and Drought is their most recent output.

Being an EP, Drought clocks in at around 20 minutes and contains six songs. Each piece is relatively short compared to albums like Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum. The material presented here is more comparable to their work on Paracletus, both in terms of composition and production. Despite being released as a separate piece of work, one should not view Drought as an individual effort; it still retains many of the characteristics of the band's previous album: the song structures are complex and deliberately uninviting. The overall mood established is eerie and unsettling. Riffs evolve from single-note strikes into stifling, formless sound shapes, deeply rooted in 'grey' tones that constantly shift in tempo and meter. Dissonance is an integral aesthetic element of this band's music, so expect reams of atonal fretwork that lends the songs colour, depth, and variety.

This is a potent, memorable EP. The songs are shorter and simpler than what we're used to from this band but they are still very powerful. Drought is Deathspell Omega going for the jugular and rocking out. The sound is as austere as the images that the title provokes. If you like these guys you will like this record, but it's definitely different.

The album is fantastic. It was totally worth waiting two weeks for it to arrive. I strongly recommend it especially to those who like to have an actual object in their hand instead of a Mp3.

Atmosphere... Truly as good as it gets, even for Deathspell Omega!

Powerful metal that benefits from its short running time. Not sure if it's a good thing, but my ears are bleeding.
