Aeonic Dissonances Beyond Light's Consumption

Rated 1.83/5 (36.67%) (6 Votes)

This Chilean two-man Black Metal horde may have some cult following in the catacombs of the underground über-kvlt Black Metal circles. Hence, perhaps, German underground label Totenmusik decided to give them a shot, and released both Concatenatus' 2015 demo, Meditation Through the Inner Vortex, and the 2016 EP, Aeonic Dissonances Beyond Light's Consumption, in a fancy looking digipak-CD release. The demo from 2015 had been released as a limited edition of 200 copies only, and the EP just digitally, so I can see why the label wanted to give a proper release for both releases.

After hearing this compilation of Concatenatus' early releases, I wish I could say I was excited to hear them, but unfortunately now it looks like I failed to understand this duo's take on avant-garde-ish and experimental Black Metal, with touches of Doom Metal thrown in. I have to respect the band's attempt to sound different, unique and all that, but at the end of the day, their raw, primitive and torturous sounding Black Metal simply ended up sounding dull, lifeless and sadly tedious to me. Shall I continue? Nope, I don't think so. Check them out at your own risk.
