    Doom has been flourishing lately, as bands combine elements of black metal, sludge, death metal, desert rock, and all kinds of awesome subgenres to make some of the most unique and strong music to come out of the metal scene in a long while. The debut album from Portuguese doom metallers Vaee Solis, Adversarial Light, is another good example.

    There's so much to like. The group's frontwoman, credited in the press release simply as Sophia, has a haunting, eerie vocal trill that sounds genderless and suspended in time and space. It wails and carries over the drones, doomy progressive chords and feedback screeches of a record that is distinctly doom, but with a black metal vibe, as the guitars and vocals echo in a chilling, frostbitten manner.

    Each of the six songs on this release are absolute monoliths, and yet the songs all flow together in a drone-y, dreamy way. "Libra" is the album highlight, but the title track is also very strong and "Feral Isolation" possesses all the bleakness of its excellent title.

    There aren't many downsides to the release; it's very grim and bleak, and perhaps a bit monotonous at times, but it adds to the atmosphere here. If you are a fan of the doomy, sludgy, grim and deranged, Adversarial Light is for you.

about

Vaee Solis - Adversarial Light - debut cassette album to be released March 20th, 2015, through SIGNAL REX & DEGRADAGEM.

Vaee Solis is a band that fits Morrigan's martial howling invoking the liberation and illumination of the eternal night, represented in Scandinavian traditions by Ragnarok. Its Sun is the polar Black Sun that shines bright like a diamond on Lucifer's forehead. Sophia's voice is, therefore, a hoarse and inflamed appeal to all human beings, slaves of the heavy forgetful slumber to which they have been condemned to by industrial society, to rise like Titans to their nocturnal awakening. Lamia's apotropaic shriek, lined by melancholic yet intensely melodic bards provided in the shadows with long and phallic guitars, takes away all fear of the inertia of merely being human. Then, ancient and atavic memories rise again, stealthily like wolves, coming from the visceral core of ourselves, inflaming our blood and hardening our muscles. Only then the awakening comes and in the eternal night we remember that we indeed are Gods. - Gilberto de Lascariz

Expect nothing more than pure Blackened Doom from Portugal. Six tracks performed by a luxurious set of musicians and a special guest vocals on Feral Isolation, by Pedro Roque
