Despite GOTTESMORDER being Italian their name is actually German and means ‘Deicide’ but this is no traditional Death Metal release. This debut EP released through Le Crepuscule Du Soir by this Pisa based Atmospheric Black Metal three piece is also called ‘Gottesmorder’ and focuses on nature and by the looks of the artwork will have a dark brooding mood about it. Opening this two track affair is ‘Winternight’ which combines a cold dark emptiness, a hollow void of bleak depressive thoughts and an overall vitriolic aura with a melodic yet draining sound, it is quite an experience. To finish off with ‘Abyss of Throats’ has a more raw feel too it, like skin being rubbed from tissue as the band grind along slowly. yet despite it’s obviously malicious nature this track too has a sense of blackened melody. The overall effect is chilling to the core and makes for a compelling listen. [7/10 – LUKE HAYHURST]
