Devil Master (USA), Lamp Of Murmuur (USA)
Philadelphia’s Devil Master have been spitting in the face of convention since forming in 2016 with their raw, twisted brand of Death Rock meets Black Metal Punk Mayhem, commanding the steel of Venom, the fury of Bathory’s earliest years, and the raw, uncompromising nature of the notorious Gism, Satan Spits on Children of Light sees Devil Master emerge from the grave and reach new blasphemous heights. Give in to the Satanic panic and obey your Devil Master!
Few artists in recent memory have swept through the dark underground with the excited fervour that Lamp Of Murmuur has achieved since first appearing with a string of demos in 2019. Despite the project’s quick rise to renown, little is known about the band except that the project hails from Los Angeles and is led by an enigmatic man known as M.
There is no shortage of raw black metal projects around the world but the way that M. approaches the genre sets Lamp Of Murmuur on a different path than many of its contemporaries. Starting as a fairly orthodox one-man endeavor, it was soon apparent that behind the ghastly mist of rabid riffs and ominous synths there was a far more complex and enigmatic beast dancing behind a veil of shadows.
Lamp Of Murmuur’s new album is a statement of might and power, destroying all preconceptions the project had made in the past, while also serving to cement its position as a driving force in modern-day underground metal.
