Limited Black vinyl w/ 8pp A5 folded booklet
VENTR hail from Portugal, the current hotbed of raw black metal. While an otherwise-new entity, the rippling 'n' roiling black metal they present across their first public recording, Numinous Negativity, betrays a wealth of experience - an expanse of void-dwelling visions that are startling to behold this early on. Grim and ghastly, the band likewise exude a strident physicality which transcends most iterations of rawness, and the same could be said for their bewitching melodicism: never soft nor saccharine, these haunting lead-lines duly transport the listener into exquisitely dark 'n' cobwebbed realms. The sum effect of Numinous Negativity, from a musical standpoint, is a medieval malodorousness that's as ancient as it is rottenly fresh.
