The Wayward and the Lost was also helmed by  Billy Anderson (Acid KingNeurosis, etc.), as its blend of claustrophobic tonality from Simpson and Allen Scott — who also adds to the liberal amount of drones and noise included throughout these tracks — though the bulk of the basic material seems to have been put to tape in 2015 by SimpsonScott, bassist Keith Messerle and drummer Nate Bidwell with further grim flourish added after the fact.

One can hear the effects of that as drones and echoes fill out the reaches of the otherwise minimalist, extreme and excruciating “Satyr” at the album’s finish, but from “The City (My Mausoleum),” which opens with a deceptive innocent melancholy of guitar and eerie cymbal wash, the threat of violence is never completely absent. Unlike most of The Wayward and the Lost, “The City (My Mausoleum)” in its early going feels specifically indebted to Neurosis via YOB, but by the time Beneath Oblivion build into their first slow-motion rollout and engulfing, nod-topping screams, their course through sludge-laden cruelty seems set, and while their approach is by no means unipolar — that is, the screams and growls and lumber and pummel dissipate in favor of trades into sparse lines of guitar, swells of volume emerging in a dynamic back and forth interplay — they’ve already somewhat subtly begun the work that will continue throughout the subsequent tracks.

Now, it’s important to keep in mind that, as regards subtlety and Beneath Oblivion, it’s probably not the first word that’s going to come to mind, what with the unmanageable 64 minutes of punishment that The Wayward and the Lost carries across with such ferocity and patience, but as grueling and intense as these songs can be, there’s a sense of exploration within them as well. That comes through in the pre-midsection of “The Liar’s Cross” and in the rolling “Savior-Nemesis-Redeemer,” which might be the most straightforward inclusion here from Beneath Oblivion by whatever standard one might want to apply. Again, all things are relative. The impulse with a band like Beneath Oblivion is to cast them as misanthropes, as a kind of four-man counterculture working against the norms of songcraft and accessibility.

Well, I’m perfectly willing to grant that The Wayward and the Lost is about as audience-friendly as a carpenter’s nail through the skull when taken front to back, but to separate the group from what it is to be human and especially what it is to be human in the varied age of wonders and horrors in which we live cheats the band of perhaps one of the most crucial elements of their expression. A group doesn’t just come back after seven years and put out a record if they don’t have something do say, and with the stated theme of addiction, The Wayward and the Lost explores a pivotal aspect of this moment, but even if one wants to take it on a less analytical, more impressionistic level, it shows us the depths to which our minds can go that more often than not we’re more afraid to plunder. The growth the band has undertaken that has allowed them to do so is no less evident than the volume of their delivery, and in Beneath Oblivion‘s maturity there is a focus of intent that belies the album’s title. We may be wayward, lost, but the band has every idea of how they want to represent that, and in their success, they cast depths and spaces the harshness of which reflects our own cruelties and apathy back at us.

Hyponic Premiere “Zhu Mie Ling Ba” from New Album Qian Xingzhe

Posted in audiObelisk on July 11th, 2016 by JJ Koczan

hyponic-composite

Hong Kong-based extreme atmospheric metallers Hyponic release their third album, Qián Xíngzhe, on Aug. 10 via Weird Truth Productions. Its title translating roughly to “The Former Monk,” it’s the first Hyponic record in 11 years and finds the long-running outfit pared down to just two members, guitarist/vocalist Wah and guitarist/vocalist/drummer Roy, but as one can hear in “Zhu Miè Líng Ba,” the time between outings hardly seems to have dulled the band’s drive toward deeply weighted doom, taking influence from death and black metal but crafting something spacious and consuming from it in an emotionally-charged ambient melancholy.

That’s about par for the course for Hyponic, whoever might be in the band. Their last record was 2005’s deathly The Noise of Time, and it followed a somewhat similar direction, but the time between seems to have led Hyponic toward anhyponic qian xingzhe even more atmospheric focus, at least if “Zhu Miè Líng Ba” and the Qian Xingzhe title-track (which is also out on YouTube) are anything to go by. I haven’t heard the full album yet, so won’t comment on it as a whole, but 2016 marks their 20th year of existence — Roy is a founding member — they’ve toured mainland China and become known for the viciousness of their approach, so I’m not going to argue with what I’m hearing, particularly because it sounds like it’s about to eat me anyway.

Preorders are up now, so think of this as a teaser if you want, or at very least a heads up on Hyponic‘s wrenching bleakness in case you haven’t heard them before. Also, please note that the titles listed below are approximations. I was unable to get the original Chinese characters to show up in WordPress and even when translated, there were accent marks that weren’t going through. Refer to the preorder page to see it all as it’s meant to be, and please enjoy the track:

Hyponic (Hong Kong) – Qián xíngzhe (August 10th, 2016, Weird Truth Productions)

On their 20th anniversary, Hyponic from Hong Kong release their new album after a gap of over a decade. Titled ‘Qián xíngzhe’, the mysterious band venture into newer realms – exploring dark ambient sounds, atmospheric black metal bits and all out melancholy. The music here is like the darker form of Funeral Moth – the atmospheric bits sink deeper into the consciousness, causing an emotive purge of all the repressed negativities in life.

It’s a slow, ongoing process, like a soul-transferring ritual of sorts, taking place mentally using the medium of sound. Upon listening to the entire weird and unpredictable album, I can say with confidence that Hyponic are without parallels. It’s a unique expression in the genre of atmospheric/funeral/’extreme’ death/doom – if it can even be called any of that. Weird Truth Productions, the master in deciphering obscure doom, has unleashed another gem in the genre.
