Editorial Reviews

2011 release, the fifth album from France's mysterious, meta-physical, Black Metal omega lords. Initially emitting raw, traditional Black Metal, this enigmatic entity experimented and evolved into a more technical, eviscerating evil. Outside of the music, very little is known about its member's beliefs and ideology. What is certain however is the return of the most revered kult band in the world!

Upon completion of your first full listen of the album don't expect to be anything other than fatigued. The mental exhaustion i speak of however is far from a bad thing, nor will it stop you from wanting to immediately give the album another spin. And then another one. And another one. No. This mental fatigue comes from the albums ability to shred all of your preconceptions of what dark music and black metal is capable of, and it's really infectious. On "Paracletus" Deathspell Omega have manged to find the perfect balance between absolute twisted musical insanity and well crafted, beautifully dark melodies, which are presented through densely layered guitar work that literally leave you wondering how they came up with such genius ideas. This album is not only masterfully composed, but it's heavily progressive, and challenges some of the most atmospheric metal albums i've ever heard for the top spot.

From the opening dissonant guitar riff of "Epiklesis" all the way to the very last minute of the almost doomy and desperate melodies of "Apokatastasis Panton" this album never lets up. The songs transition into one another so flawlessly that if one were not looking at the tracks changing you'd never know it was a new song. This gives the album a very dense and epic feel to it, and although it's 42 minutes long the album is so good and commands so much attention that you'll never stop to think about the minutes going by. The only sign you'll find that time has passed when you are through with it will be the ringing remaining in your ears, as you will have had the irresistible urge to turn the volume up to immerse yourself more fully in the wall of sound that they create.

10 years ago French blackmetal band Deathspell Omega was just another dime as dozen Darkthrone clone trying to make it in the dog eat dog world of trve blackmetal. Then something happened; disgruntled by the stagnating state of Blackmetal, Deathspell decided to take matters into their own hands and pave a new path. Starting with the release of Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice, and following with a handful of EP's and 2007's absolute masterpiece Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum, the band crafted a trilogy that takes as much influence from innovative works like Gorgut's seminal masterstroke Obscura as it does the hallmark classics by Noway's Emperor and Darkthrone. Employing rapidly changing time signatures, dissonant and unconventional compositions Deathspell Omega has manged to make the most evil and menacing sounding blackmetal I've heard in years. The do all of this without managing to sound even remotely like anyone else. With their latest release entitled Paracletus they finish their trilogy, which as a whole serves for them as meditation and philosophical thesis on what they call "metaphysical Satan worship".

The album begins with a fantastic track called "Epiklesis" and never really relents from there. Much like their previous albums, is difficult to pick a standout track because, A) the whole album is so fantastic and B) it's almost impossible to tell were one song ends and another begins. The album flows as one long continuous piece with passage from early tracks showing up again and again throughout the album as remade echos of their former selves. Gone are the empty spaces that were used to such dramatic effect on Fas -, as well as many of the more over the top elements, instead we have a more focused and dare I say proggy release this time around.

The final album of the Deathspell Omega is a very well done end. Not much more can be said about this album that can't be said about the other 2 albums besides that this seems more... pained? There are very many parts that just feel anguished and beaten, as if their inspiration was the great deal of pain the experienced making and conceptualizing this work of art.

With "Paracletus," mysterious avant-garde black metallers Deathspell Omega further secure their position as one of the most unique and adventurous of metal bands. The terrific "Fas" remains a remarkable achievement, but it was perhaps a stylistic dead end--repeating that murderous onslaught could prove wearying. Thus, "Paracletus" takes a slightly more accessible approach, as was predicted with the "Chaining the Katechon" EP. There is more midpaced material here, the drumming is not quite as suffocatingly dense, and DsO even thrown in a few memorable vocal lines. Of course, this is only the mildest mainstreaming of their sound--anyone not interested in extreme metal would find this an unbearable cacophony. Thus, the heart of the band remains, and this is still an extremely sophisticated and meticulous bit of extreme metal. Deathspell Omega is simply a band without peers--no one else even tries to do what they do. Few could likely pull it off.

"Paracletus," as the final chapter of their trilogy, is another conceptual work best viewed and consumed as a whole. Thematically, it seems to describe the apocalypse of their theological system, with the world crumbling to a lifeless waste w/o any later renewal. Or maybe not, it's hard to say, but, whatever the case, the lyrics have an overwrought theatricality that matches the extremity of the instrumentation. The music itself proves to be the most grandiose they've written since SMRC, particularly in the post-metal interludes that can build to a symphonic intensity. (Some have called this a distillation of their various approaches, a reasonable description.) The purely metallic material uses a layered production style that gives the bass a prominent role and changes the general feel of the album.
