Hellveto - Neoheresy (CD)

by George Karagiannis at 10 December 2008, 12:05 PM

Many of you seeing the name of the band believe that this is another newcomer in the fields of the Metal scene. Not this time my dear friends. For those who know well the paths of harsh and cold triumphant Black Metal this band is a legend.
HELLVETO comes from Poland, while the man behind the whole project is L.O.M., a guy that brings to mind the sadly deceased Quorthon as he is also the mastermind and the ONLY member of HELLVETO and therefore responsible for all the instruments and vocals! The band exists since 1995(!) and, yes my dear hordes, this is their 12th achievement!!! It was not until 2006 they (he) signed with Pulverised Records but up to that point the band had already a brilliant past of numerous records and several EP's with underground labels. As you see this guy surely is special…but as if this was not enough L.O.N. has also the one-member bands BLAKAGIR, SARKEL and WINDS OF GARDEN!!!
Neoheresy is their third release through Pulverise and I think with this one they (he) will achieve the success they (he) deserve all this time. A really strong album…mind-blowing from the first minute!L.O.M. knows what he's doing; when he wants to spread the orchestral/progressive side of the band he just lets the melodies flow…like the masterpiece track of the record Taran or Herezja, but also never forgets his Black Metal roots as you can find in tracks like the ultra-fast Gdy Umeria Swit or very experimental tracks like the 9-minute long Milczace Sumiene.
His vocals are a bit strange, different from the typical Black Metal screams, the guitars are also non-typical Black Metal in many parts (see Taran for example) while the symphonic parts give that dark medieval feeling…beautiful and sorrowful at the same time…
The cd also includes the video of Taran which really surprised me by being so professional…most of the Black Metal videos (except from some sparks) are a bit of a joke. Well, take a look on this one and you'll understand that without having an enormous budget you can make something beautiful, descent and with attitude!!
This is an honest record…something hard to find lately in the Metal scene…my dearest hordes give it a try…you won't regret it…
…only death keeps us alive…
