Pre-Order: Death. Void. Terror. - To The Great Monolith II




NO ORIGIN. 

Gaze into the Great Monolith and behold its horrors and glory! This is the essence of the practitioner's pursuit. Delving into the unconscious, the practitioners allow their limbs to move spontaneously by channeling the Great Monolith's sublime essence, leaving sounds that are stripped of any humanity or sense of physical awareness. It is in this state that Death. Void. Terror. endeavor to attain the purity that emanates from the Great Monolith. 

This purity may never be fully grasped or attained by any individual practitioner, resulting in it being essentially futile. Yet it is not fruitless, for the practitioner's purpose is to serve as a vessel for the Great Monolith's purity and not to attain any semblance of creative satisfaction. Practitioners must be bereft of such arrogance! As ambitious as the individual practitioner's pursuit may be, his pursuit of the purity expressed through the Great Monolith remains but that - a pursuit. 

By aiming to approximate the purity of the Great Monolith's transmissions, different approaches have been applied by individual practitioners, leading to correspondingly different visual manifestations that each serve as a separate aspect to the audial manifestations pursued by practitioners 

NO ORDER.

Terror Returns...


Gaze into the Great Monolith eternally and behold its horrors and glory! This is the essence of the practitioner's pursuit. Bear in mind, however, that the purity of the Great Monolith may never be grasped nor attained by any individual practitioner. The practitioner's pursuit is, therefore, essentially futile.

Yet it is not fruitless, for the practitioner's purpose is to serve as a vessel for the Great Monolith's purity, and not to attain any semblance of creative satisfaction. For as ambitious as the individual practitioner's pursuit may be, his pursuit of the purity expressed through the Great Monolith remains but that - a pursuit. By aiming to approximate the purity of the Great Monolith's transmissions, different approaches have been applied by individual practitioners, leading to correspondingly different visual manifestations that serve as a separate aspect to the audial manifestations pursued by practitioners..."

New Release: ATEIGGÄR - Us d'r Höll chunt nume Zyt

The Helvetic Underground Committee is pleased to announce a new entity that has spawned from its midst. Give heed and cower before ATEIGGÄR! Gather before this fearsome entity that has, after deliberate and meticulous examination, managed to decode and transcribe into audial form the supernatural formulae containing concealed wisdom on the spheres of might, the nature of time and space. Embark upon a mystical journey through soundscapes detailing visions of Levania, and explorations into the conscience of gods told through the twisted soundscape of total arcane mastery!

ATEIGGÄR (suitably, this moniker means "initiator of ideas") was formed in early 2019 by Fauth Temenkeel and Fauth Lantav. While their lyrical universe is formed around alchemistic and mystic ideas stemming from the early modern period, ATEIGGÄR's sound is deeply rooted in the traditions of second-wave black metal. Proudly purist yet not exclusively backwards-looking, the five songs comprising Us d'r Höll chunt nume Zyt - the band's first public recording, a veritable bolt from the blue - compellingly create a tapestry of mysticism and splendor strongly breathing the air of the ancients, a staunchly '90s-entrenched majesty and might.


To be released November 15th on 12'' vinyl and cassette tape formats through Eisenwald Tonschmiede

New Release: KVELGEYST - Alkahest

The Helvetic Underground Committee is pleased to let it be known that the mysterious entity known as Kvelgeyst has completed many years of alchemical experiments to extract a formidable elixir, Alkahest, to be unleashed by Vendetta Records on 12 June 2019. 


Kvelgeyst was originally called into life in 2015 to delve into the most obscure practices known to man in pursuit of a universal solvent, the alkahest. Their thorough search for transmutations has been molded into the form of wicked riff-craft and otherworldly, musical chaos. 


Kvelgeyst is:
Urgeist - Guitars, Vocals
Meister T. - Bass, Vocals, Synths
V. Knüppelknecht - Drums

Alkahest was recorded in H.U.C. crypt in 2018.
Mixed by Kerberos and Meister T.
Mastered by Andreas Rosczyk at Goblin Sound.

Dakhma unpublished from Facebook



Dakhma was recently unpublished from Facebook due to continued violations of Facebook's page guidelines, apparently caused by the album artwork for "Hamkar Atonement". Although the decision to unpublish Dakhma's page was appealed out of principle, it has become increasingly obvious that Facebook's community guidelines result in automated, brainless censorship that is frankly not worth the time and effort required to deal with in order to maintain the mere semblance of a presence on the shitstain that is that website. As such, any information related to Dakhma and the Zoroastrian Death Music practiced by this entity will be posted on the (Facebook-owned, but somehow still ever so slightly less ridiculously censored) Instagram under dakhma_zdm.

New Release: Arkhaaik - *dʰg̑ʰm̥tós u̯rsn̥gwhé̄n

Arkhaaik is the excavation of rites long forgotten, of primitive worship and ancient deities that ruled long before man dominated and soiled the earth. These sounds explore Europe's bronze age and encompass the very essence of said rites that were extinct long ago, told in the Indo-European tongue that was used at the time and is now long lost to the ages, its utterance strange to the modern ear.

Encompassing three expansive tracks in 33 minutes, Arkhaaik's first sonic manifestation suitable takes a guttural (and GUTTING) form, drawing together sepulchral death metal, blackened bestiality and lava-like doom into sulfuric, senses-flaying mass. Its cavernous, ceaselessly roiling slipstream of carnal hysteria and barbarism punishes physically and penetrates psychically; it is of his earth, and beyond it.



Now, witness the unearthed ancients, beholden to the almighty sky father, ruler of the daylit skies! Behold the mighty bull! In his veins, the blood of the ancients pounds with fervor, and reciprocating this fervor, Arkhaaik bathe in his gore. Through the spilling of his blood, they atatin ancient divinity.
