Portuguese Black Metal act O CERCO will have its second effort out next 5th February through SIGNAL REX. “A Desolação” comes after their good initial EP “O Homem Esmorece…A Natureza prevalece”.
The new EP will feature three tracks of negative Post-Black Metal invocation.
Set to be released internationally on February 5th, 2016, as a special digifile CD nest, limited to 500 copies, A Desolação comprises three seamlessly linked songs of splendor and tension, trance and catharsis.OCERCO‘s sound stems from the post-black metal canon, but safely eludes the negative connotations associated with such an appellation. More accurately, the band’s commitment to textural development and labyrinthine, drawn-out construction signal a strive for more complex corridors of spirituality. From there, A Desolação explodes and recoils, twists and turns, always bathed in an aura of the unknown and unease – and yet, its complexities are ever so subtle and most rewarding. Listeners will find a kinship to bands like Wolves in the Throne Rome, Altar of Plagues, Ash Borer, and the likes, but across the 20 minutes here, OCERCO stake a claim for their own identity.
