Aura of Suffering

Rated 4/5 (80%) (2 Votes)

Perdition Winds, formed in 2010, has been boiling in an unholy brew of thick filthy sperm and black blood. The band features key members from such Finnish extreme Metal hordes as Desolate Shrine, Lie in Ruins and Neutron Hammer, among others. Expect no wussy or sweet sounding ballads from this bunch.

The debut album, Aura of Suffering, offers six lengthy Black/Death Metal anthems that are meant to summon the dead. After giving Aura of Suffering a couple of intense spins it becomes obvious they have put quite a lot of emphasis on song structure and woven in oppressive, desolate and crushing atmospheres that simply cannot go unnoticed. The songs stand on their own and Perdition Winds' extremely violent Black/Death Metal does all the talking. In a way they remind me of Germany's Lovecraftian Death Metallers Sulphur Aeon, but harsher and more Black Metal orientated.

I honestly didn't expect this album to be this good. As some time went by it turned out to be better than good; in fact, Aura of Suffering is undoubtedly one of the most positive surprises of the year as far as the more extreme side of Metal is concerned. Definitely worth checking out.
