THEE MALDOROR KOLLECTIVE "New Era Viral Order"

This is another oddity on my desk! But this time, it seems like the band is quite known in Italian Metal underground! To my shame (mea culpa!) this is the first material I come to listen to and I really am curious to know how the former ones sound. Just think about...the band was founded in 1991!!! Initially known as INQUISITOR and then as FUNERAL FOG, TMK releases, during the years, some demos confirmed by the Italian mass- media and two obscure albums "Ars Magika" and "In Saturn Mystique". Let me describe the music, which is hmmmm... damn hard: Black, Industrial, Ritualistic, EBM and Dark Ambient... a mixture of aggressive Black Metal with RAISON D'ETRE or any Swedish band from CMI. The drum-machine is infernal and interminable; the aggressive/sick voice breaks any form of melancholia or peaceful atmosphere, Black/Death Metal rhythms embrace in absolute chaos Ambient ones...as it is a proper background for Lucifer to raise! How could I know such? Well, I couldn't...just guessing! Anyway, this is a ritual holocaust as far as Metal is regarded and it would be better to listen to such only for the sake of finding out the Italian manner or conceiving such. As for the execution...I just didn't realise if it was about a synchronisation or secondary effects...since all is an infernal noise interrupted by sinister, macabre passages. Is this a different face of Satan? I understood this musical concept has a strong background as far as lyrics' message is concerned but this is for you to find out by yourselves if visiting their web page,
