On their debut full-length proper, Chilean horde ANIMUS MORTIS present eight ethereal exhibits of shrill, desolate Black Metal laden with an eerie, dark ambience. The bitter misanthropy is laced with a wicked sense of melody but raw darkness prevails throughout, creating an incredible primordial effect. Hazy and uninhibited, “Atrabilis (Residues From Verb & Flesh)” is an uncanny, unsettling release that works on the most, primitive, base levels. Murky menace is omnipresent. An intense aura of bleakness drips from every trembling note, intensified by relentless shrieks and cavernous blackness. Born of the dense mountain ranges that flank the Santiago Basin, this is creepy, crespular, organic and unique Black Metal that recognises no peers. ANIMUS MORTIS is the misty, freezing antidote to a stagnant, generic scene. Listen in awe as translucent frost chills your very being, removing all warmth from life, leaving nothing inhabiting the shadows but utter despair...

Who ever knew that misanthropy had such a powerful voice and message. Aggressively melodic. How can't anyone just half awake not see it for what it all is? The game, that is (madness).
There were 666 units purchased when I placed my order. Had to put it over the mark. I heard once that all the chairs in the UN assembly building are numbered and assigned; all except for chair #666. I suppose they're waiting for someone! Jeff Richardson
