Bane - Esoteric Formulae Award winner

Esoteric Formulae
by Craig Rider at 03 January 2019, 9:44 PM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I am proud to present to you: BANE; signed via Black Market Metal Label, hailing from Serbian grounds - performing Melodic Black/Death Metal, on their 3rd album entitled: “Esoteric Formulae” (released November 30th, 2018).

Since formation in 2006; the band in question have a Demo, an EP; 3 Splits, 3 albums, and a Single in their discography so far. I am introduced to their 3rd album entitled: “Esoteric Formulae”. 10 tracks ranging at around 35:48; BANE arrange an intricately designed formula of hard-hitting Melodic Black/Death Metal developments, “Invocation Of The Nameless One” begins the record…amalgamating an arsenal of attributions influenced from ARCH ENEMY most notably. Conveying in boistrously bouncy bludgeonings of crunchy creativity & craftsmanship, converging a diverse combustion of dynamic diligence & dominant demonstrations of fluidly composed granduers in which vehemently persist with polished manifestations of meticulous mayhem and relentlessly rhythmic ramications.

Consisting of brainchild frontman Brainslav on all instruments except drums; mastermind meticulously provides proficiently produced sounds of thunderously chaotic distinctions. “The Calling Of The Eleven Angles” distributes complexly constructive dexterity; as multitasker showcases sonically seamless pipes of profusely robust savagery, sinisterly primitive technicalities & subtle stability that will render you slaughtered in a adrenaline fuelled harmonies hardened with flamboyant fabrications. Honza Kapak on drums batters and hammers his kit with killer hostility; “Beneath The Black Earth” establishes efficient embodiments of elements in which implement inventively versatile ultilizations, uniquely and systematically slamming solid slabs of concretely consistent grit.

Bringer Of Pandimensional Disorder” experiments with rapidly swift nimbleness; unprecedented rambunctiousness, prodegious weight and an amplified adrenaline rush that rivetly with velocity and stomping - a good banger. “Wretched Feast” offers adroitly acute aesthetics, organically salubrious substances that supply vast varieties of speedy orchestrations & prominent musicianship. “Into Oblivion” advances with more hastily heavy melodies; a blistering, borderline foundation of razor-sharp stability – transistioned with monstrous malevolence & vicious tempos. “Burning The Remains” subjugates quirky soundscapes while shined with malignant doses of atmospheric blends, converged into a barraged frenzy of blast-beating chaos - this is a behemoth of a record so far.

Speaking of chaos; “Reign In Chaos” forges adaptable and explosive energy, electrified with finesse and a grandiose generation of thumpy jumps submerged with silver lining raspiness of gnarly proportions. “Acosmic Forces Of The Nightside” injects infectiously groovy catchiness, infused with elegantly exquisite instrumentation and enjoyably entertaining intensities - songwriting that is originally memorable and significantly talented. Overall concluding “Esoteric Formulae” with the instrumental finale track: “Wrathful Reflections”; I am compelled to say that BANE excelled themselves here, hymns fuelled with battle ready wrath of ponderous wonders of progressively technical skill - the combined culmination of Melodic Black/Death Metal is a healthy mix of integral sub-genres is quite miraculous here - good stuff lads!
