Lost Sounds Depraved

Rated 3/5 (60%) (3 Votes)

Another band from one of Black Metal's hotbeds, France, Aigro Mucifelam is definitely not of the symphonic or melodic sub-genres of Black Metal, quite the contrary.  Lost Sounds Depraved is raw as fuck, devoid of anything remotely "pretty sounding."  It's a barrage of minimalistic guitars and drums and will most likely sound like senseless noise to the untrained ear (and we've all been there at some point...)  Heavy, fast and engulfed in a filthy, malevolent atmosphere, this reminds me somewhat of the underground French Black Metal from the mid-90s at times, just with a better production (which is nonetheless very raw.)  The vocals are pretty much undecipherable rasps that sometimes sound just like background noise if you don't pay close attention, overshadowed by the overpowering, relentless guitars and drums. These vocals convey a very dark feeling, adding another dimension of hatred and evilness to the chaotic musical onslaught - a good thing, since the music itself is quite unidimensional and not all that varied, but somehow very effective in the delivery.  Lost Sounds Depraved is definitely not for everyone - if you can't handle the rawest, most minimalistic stuff, then don't even go near this.  The intended audience should appreciate, however.  All the seven tracks are untitled.
