When my blood runs cold

14.90

CD NEW AND SEALED

Black metal project with female vocals from a godforsaken place called Udmurtia (the city of Izhevsk), almost lost in the wild Russian woods. This leaves us no choice but to create such a creepy music impregnated with forests twilight and swamp damp. In our songs we’re trying to grasp the mankind’s nature and fate, why human’s actions are sometimes so unbearable..

When my blood runs cold

  1. From Distorted sound mag: Hailing from the North Western city of Izhevsk, CHERNOTA have quickly established themselves as one of the shining lights of the Russian underground scene. Featuring members of both DOOM ARCHITECT and PSYCHOSIS, the band have made significant waves within not just their local scene, but within the Eastern European extreme metal scene as a whole, in spite of only have one release to their name. The two-piece black metal outfits debut album, When My Blood Runs Cold is a strong and impressive statement of intent, which draws on the bleak and isolated woodland landscapes close to them in their home city and the folklore surrounding it, creating one of the more acerbic and aggressive black metal records of the year, and making their stamp on the Russian and European black metal scenes emphatically.

    Cease The Insanity bursts out of the speakers at a breakneck pace, with caustic guitars and tight drumming creating a dense wall of noise that immediately grabs the listener’s attention. Powerful vocals add further ferocity to the proceedings, while solid lead guitar melodies provide some lighter moments in amongst the cacophony; something which helps to add some catchy riffs into the mix. Solipsist, a much darker, disjointed piece of music, doesn’t ease up with the intensity for a second, makes great use of jarring hooks and acidic roars to give this song much of its venom. In spite of its rabid approach, it’s one of the album’s more memorable tracks. The Scent of Death is a brilliant slab of melodic black metal with some intricate drumming and imaginative lead guitars, which help to keep this track interesting from the first note to the last. Jumping between faster and more focused sections and more mid-paced, morose ones, it’s also a very varied song that adds plenty of depth to this albums already diverse sound.
    Makot Mitzrayim is a far more expansive and rhythmic affair, with subdued, yet robust, guitars carrying this song, with sparse, minimalist leads providing a break from the dirge like groove that dominates this songs sound. It’s got a great, epic undertone that counterpoints the grating, fierce edge of the music incredibly well, making this fairly lengthy offering a great way to bring this records first half to a close. When My Blood Runs Cold‘s title track is another long and discordant mix of thunderous drums, thick, grating guitar and visceral vocals, with some intricate melodies thrown into the mix for good measure. It’s got a huge, monolithic sound that draws the listener in straight away, slowly morphing into a jarring yet bombastic piece of music that ends up being one of the albums more impressive offerings. Right Inside Your Head is yet another solid melodic black metal track with a dirge-like undercurrent, which displays some impressive musicianship and fantastic vocals, making for a short, sharp shock of ferocious riffs and feral singing which complement each other extremely well.

    Maleficium is a great, groove-laden track that proves to be a brief yet brilliant piece of fairly acerbic black metal, with sludgy guitar and bass tones contrasting well with caustic, acidic vocal deliveries to make a sound that is equal parts crushing and rabid. Here Is Now Your Home is a dark piece of music that makes great use of solid drumming and subdued guitars to make a hypnotic song that quickly gives way to a more driven and precise slab of black metal with some ferocious sounding vocals grabbing the listeners attention. It’s a great track that sets the listener up for the ninth and final song on the record, Samsara, extremely well. This last track is a brilliant amalgamation of the various aspects of the CHERNOTA sound, from the tight, melodic leads to the more palpable, sludgier rhythms and harsh, rasping vocals. It is intense and atmospheric in equal measure, making for a well balanced and eclectic piece of music which brings this album to a close on a high note.

    As far as debut records go, When My Blood Runs Cold is impressive. It’s clear CHERNOTA have a very strong idea of where they want to go with their sound. The band have a solid rhythm section that gives this record a huge sound, and Kuznetsova‘s vocals complement the music on offer perfect. It’s a great album that lays down the foundations for future music, and sets a lofty bar for CHERNOTA to overcome very early on on their career.

  2. From Giornale Metal : Dalla sperduta, ed ai più sconosciuta, area della Russia chiamata Udmurtia, una terra immersa nella pace secolare dei boschi lussureggianti, proviene questo bestiale e selvaggio Black Metal duo, che risponde al nome di Chernota, ed è composto dalla screamer/liricista Marina Kuznetcova e dal compositore/arrangiatore/addetto al mixing & mastering (non ho capito bene se anche strumentista) Leo Odintcov. “When My Blood…” è il loro album d’esordio, in uscita per Blasphemous Rec. il 13 di settembre prossimo venturo. Premetto che il genere proposto è puro Black Metal, selvaggio ed indomito quanto relativamente minimale, tipico dei giganti norvegesi quali Darkthrone et similia. Né più né meno. Gli stilemi di detto genere sono pochi e familiari per tutti oramai: screamy vocals, ritmi violenti e pesantissime chitarre in modalità “open strings” atte ad intessere partiture pregne di maledette e sinistre scale frigie e tritonali, per un risultato oscuro come la pece. Ciò nonostante, quel che caratterizza il duo in questione è l’uso dell’espressività tipica del Black Metal… non semplicemente per le solite puerili esaltazioni di qualche improbabile satanasso, bensì… allo scopo di addentrarsi, con linguaggio relativamente filosofico, nei meandri del lato oscuro della mente umana. Cercando di sviluppare empatia e comprensione con i comportamenti peggiori della natura degli uomini. Il risultato globale, pur sviluppato entro il limite dell’appartenenza al genere suddetto, non è assolutamente disprezzabile. Anzi brani come “Solipsist” e la title-track sembrano scavare, a livello lirico, più a fondo dei soliti cliché demoniaci, allo scopo di capire, comprendere, assimilare detto lato oscuro e selvaggio, per cercare di interiorizzarlo e controllarlo con più consapevolezza. Non risvegliamo il Signore delle Mosche dell’omonimo romanzo di Golding, insomma. Cerchiamo invece di comprenderlo e studiarne meglio l’esistenza e l’origine. A livello musicale, non possiamo certo gridare al capolavoro per “When My Blood Runs Cold”. Tuttavia, visto il particolare concept illustrato nei testi, e visto anche l’impegno che traspare nella realizzazione dell’album in questione (il quale, ricordo, conserva pur sempre un minimalismo ormai di maniera nel Black Metal), un 8 è ben meritato.
