- A L I É N A N T E D A M N A T I O N - REVIEW - 8/10
"Le Chantre Du Charnier" CD/LP

From  Chrismetalreviews Wheeler

Aliénante Damnation
Album : Le Chantre du Charnier
Ars Funebris Records
2012

Packing a no-holds-barred attitude and execution, Belgium’s ALIÉNANTE DAMNATION certainly don’t mince words. With an onslaught of raw, untamed Black Metal, sole member, R.O.P.S. (also in VOCIFERIAN and MACABRA) takes Satanism and nihilism to new heights on “Le Chantre du Charnier”, his debut album, and one which is designed to “tear your soul apart”!

Exploding like a burst of fire and brimstone, “Charogne Béatifée” assaults the senses in a punk-inspired blast of primitive Black, incorporating vocals akin to an otherworldly, beastly snarl. The reference to punk- determination also rears its ugly head on “Au Sacre de la Trinité de Viol” but soon becomes a straight forward visceral experience of stripped down tremolo riffage and blaring drums! Only on “Ordalie Satanique” do the proceedings slow, but only slightly. Most, if not all, the songs are pummeling and provide little in the way of respite. Suffocating and dense, the sound is unhinged playing upon the darkest recesses of the human psyche with no apologies.

“Vêpre du Gérasien Possédé” also showcases a slower pace that is altogether haunting and malevolent in tone and atmosphere, enhanced greatly by the poisonous vocals once again. Beginning on “Mes Paupières s'obturent telle la Lame Oxydée d'une Guillotine”, the melodic Swedish Black/Death symbiosis starts to emerge, with the track lasting slightly longer. Still crude and aurally abrasive, “Le Chantre de Charnier” feels like an almost different beast altogether with decipherable riffs one can latch onto, particularly on “Me Révulse cette imperceptible Aura Sterile (Aux Portes Béantes de L`ennui Radieux)”.

Marking this album’s length a total of 37mins., is genius as the philosophy behind the art may be to “get in and get out”, without wasting time. With the majority of the tracks sounding relatively “samey”, Aliénante Damnation`s record seems to be designed for a specific mood in the listener. Harrowing and caustic, “Le Chantre du Charnier” isn’t an easy listen but can be rewarding if heard with an open mind and a predisposition to seething, unorthodox Black Metal.

Standout Tracks: “Vêpre du Gérasien Possédé”, “Sylvestre Trône des Brumes”, “Me Révulse cette imperceptible Aura Stérile (Aux Portes Béantes de L`ennui Radieux)”.

Recent  I n t e r v i e w  for :

- IMPERIUM Zine -

[Here is also revealed L.G.
latest official photography]

01. LORD GENOCIDE. PLEASE. INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO THE READERS?

Salutations and thank you for your interview request.

Also, I don't properly think that Vociferian needs any introduction for underground fans and readers of your zine today.

But if you insist, Vociferian is a dedicated band that was formed in 1998, and Integrity, durability, honor and determination are the rules that any underground bands should always follow according to me.
02. WHO WERE SOME OF THE EARLY BANDS YOU FIRST LISTENED TO? WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR CURRENT FAVORITES?

This is a very regular question. And as I'm used to answer, there are too many names or too few to mention there at the same time.

Also that kind of question never really get you know anything more about the band itself. Maybe a bit about my musical background of course.

To satisfy your curiosity I'm ok to mention a few that I've listened when I discovered the BM scene at the age of 11 years old:
Immortal, IN, DF, DT, Burzum, Enthroned, Rotting Christ, Impiety, Bestial Warlust, Abhorer and so on... of course...

Once again it's not a so interesting question and not so interesting answer... if you belong to that culture for real, you know about past acts and nowadays good stuff too.

03. WHAT`S THE BLACK METAL FOR YOU?

HATE, INTOLERANCE, DARKNESS and SUPERIOR SPIRIT.

04. WHICH ARE THE SOURCES OF INSPIRATION TO WRITE YOUR LYRICS?

Life, death, human pitiful interactions as well.
Also nature and the touch of more unseen entities out there...

05.WHAT MERCHANDISE DO YOU STILL HAVE AVAILABLE?

For now some new merchandising are just out: the Iscariot Gospel t-shirt and a Vociferian official OPF Longsleeve.

About the discography some albums are still findable in some good distributors.
While some are really hard to find these days.

That's why we are about to release the Iscariot Gospel material on digipack very soon with Chris Moyen illustrations all over it.
A 4 way split EP is about to come too with the title PANZERPHOMET on, together with great bands Manticore, Obeisance and Infernal Execrator.

06. WHAT`S YOUR OPINION OF CHRISTIANITY?

A mistake, like all of nowadays living relegions.
CRUSH THE WEAKNESS!!!

07. AS YOU SEE THE BLACK METAL SCENE ON YOUR COUNTRY?

BM has been important here in the past with bands like Ancient Rites or Enthroned,
at the moment things are good and bad at the same period, because there are a lot of new things.
Which is sometime good , but often bad... because the scene gets more and more saturated by false protagonists without any real background and culture of it, even fakes...
when they are not pure ripp offs! This damage a lot the underground and we have to resist to stop that shit.

08. YOU ARE SATISFIED WITH THE RESULTS OF VOCIFERIAN?

I don't really understand that question... sorry.
I'm not searching for any resuslt, as an artist I'm only expressing my soul through my work... nothing more, nothing less.
I don't pay attention about any "results". All that is important for me is to exhale the spirit that dwells me and intoxicate our poor world with it...

09. COMMENT ABOUT YOUR EP: ON ANGELBONES BLOOD ALTARIZED?

It was a bestial time for me, a period when fire and smoke were everyday feeding me.
This piece dealt with all dreamed persecution towards the enemy, the need to explore the most filthy and basic evil-filled instincts.
I think the title of the track "Vicious Baptism In Exaltation Of Bestiality" resumes very well the soul of this EP.

10. COMMENT ABOUT YOUR EP: HORNS OF ARMAGEDON?

It follows the emanation of OABA, but in a way more esoteric hate and warfare.
Even if as bestial as the former metioned opus, these 2 tracks composing "Horns Of Armageddon" contain
the fumes of a more apocalyptic spiritual essence in my opinion.

11. HOW ARE YOUR NEWS WORDS?

Some new releasing are coming for Vociferian as for my other side-projects.
For example the MACABRA "Necroverdose" 2xLP on Apocalyptic Empire Records this autumn.

Also while proceeding to the composition of the future Vociferian new album, I worked on the succession of ALIENANTE DAMNATION band
that is becoming a more personal project to me therefore it is changing name to: EBAUCHE NOIRE.

You will be soon able to get news about all this on:

12. THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT. ANY LAST COMMENTS?

Last words but never the least:
