German-based dark, primitive metal trio, VALBORG, will unleash their fifth
full-length opus via Temple Of Torturous. Titled Romantik, the follow-up to
2012's Nekrodepression, which Last Rites commended for being consistent
with VALBORG's “tradition of strange, compelling German music”, further
lauding their “patient, measured aggression”, features six tracks of somber
avant blackened beauty. After four albums based around experimental,
skull-crushing doom, with Romantik VALBORG dives deeper into the
heart-tearing atmospheres of the abyss of which they've so boldly explored.
Ambient synthesizers collide with wistful guitars, all slowly, purposefully
floating above a foundation built upon pummeling rhythms, the band's harsh,
German vocal inflections adding further terror their profoundly bleak
funeral power doom. Fans of Type O Negative, Vangelis, Killing Joke and
Celtic Frost/Triptykon pay heed.
