Gravecode Nebula - Sempiternal Void DLP
Gravecode Nebula is black doom metal from Utah w/ members of Iconoclast Contra, Terra Noir, Ibex Throne.
Sempiternal Void focuses around a core theme that all subsequent tracks therein revolve around, allowing for a consistent delivery of the band’s beautiful imagery conceived through several vantage points, the result of which is tended through painstakingly constructed movements that allow for a richly connective depth. An air of visceral, haunting imagination looms overhead, omnipresent, creating an aura of terrifying dissonance, brilliantly woven within the fabric of this album. Subtle asynchronous melodies float between an otherwise securely interlaced assault add a humanistic element that diverts the sonic equivalent of utter nothingness. Instrumental-driven soundscapes paint a winding introspective into a frantic display that spatters itself in no greater personification than on the final two tracks, “Lethal Aether” and “Abhorrent Absorbant.” These tracks throw the album into another direction entirely, sounding as if recorded in raw demo form, bring the slow-moving, desperate climb spiraling into a torrential downfall. Encapsulated by the echoing avalanche of riff-consumed madness, Sempiternal Void fades to a slow, squealing shadow and then at once is concluded, leaving the bleak and discordant reminder of its 60+ minute length close behind.
Gravecode Nebula refine their prowess into a bold, masterful and bleak offering that leaves its mark long after the album has concluded. This is not one to be overlooked
