Adversvm are a German funeral doom founded in 2015 by S.B. (vocals, guitars, bass). Several session members joined the band on drums, keyboards, and programmings. They entered the CKB Studio Essen to record the first album in November 2016. After a few recording sessions in the following months, at last, an album was finished: “Aion Sitra Ahra”, Adversvm’s first public recording.
“Massive” is but one way to describe “Aion Sitra Ahra” – the other, “ghostly.” For however requisitely crushing Adversvm’s funeral doom is, there’s equally a sense of ethereal drifting, that shadows forever lurk between the tectonic shifts known as riffs. And it’s generally more blackened than most extreme doom, for the original idea behind Adversvm was to create art more sinister than black metal and death metal, and to manifest this sound with apocalyptic verses.
Indeed, Morbid Darkness is what you’ll find with “Aion Sitra Ahra”: no repose, no remorse, no mercy. Simply, it sucks the life out of you…as Adversvm want it to be. But this is just the beginning, as the band already have a second album in progress, which should see the unlight later this year via Iron Bonehead. Hail emptiness and inertia.
Feel the first fatal weight of that emptiness and inertia Here at Iron Bonehead’s Soundcloud, with the opening track “Anti-Stellar Gnosis To The Acausal Nexus.”
