Abruptum - In Umbra Malitiae Ambulabo, In Aeternum In Triumpho Tenebraum album FLAC
The music on this album is completely improvised and I believe the duo Abruptum recorded it all in one take so it's a very sprawling journey that IT and Evil take us on with very few definite melodies, riffs, rhythms, beats and other song-based elements that act as sign-posts or guides. The rhythms that do appear (and there are quite a few) are usually slow and ponderous, and as they progress they seem to get slower and more sluggish until they are almost collapsing but never actually fall apart. The rhythms actually rev up after a period of quiet and another round of torture starts for IT.

Set track as current obsession. In Umbra Malitiae Ambulabo, in Aeternum in Triumpho Tenebraum (60:10). Overview (current section).
In the two albums the Abruptum seem to deconstruct and break down black metal to its primordial essence - there are no rules and musical structures, there is no canon, no songs, no riffs, no strophes, we could and should doubt if this can even be called music. De facto, the essence of Abruptum is not the musical form, but the atmosphere and the aura that they manage to evoke and transmit - a claustrophobic journey into a an endless nightmare - uncomfortable, unpredictable, morbid and cold.
