ILDJARN Strength And Anger CD


(Season Of Mist)
*** This is a new and unplayed item, direct from the CRUCIAL BLAST shop. ***

  With all of the black metal-influenced punk that has been popping up like plague sores over the past decade, a reissue campaign for the first three Ildjarn albums that laid the groundwork for this sort of slime has been long overdue; as far as I'm concerned, Ildjarn's earliest records are ground zero for the "blackened punk" sound, a filthy low-fi assault of noxious three-chord guitar riffs and monotonous thrashing tempos and snarling vocals choking on black blood. A one-man band formed by Vidar Vaaer in 1991, Ildjarn was a contemporary of other Norwegian black metal outfits like Enslaved, Mayhem, Burzum and Emperor (and had in fact been a member of Ihshan's pre-Emperor Thou Shalt Suffer), but sounded totally unlike his peers, going for a much more savage and punk-influenced sound that more often resembled some rabid, barbaric strain of hardcore than the more baroque directions that bands like Emperor were heading in. After releasing a handful of demo cassettes earlier in the decade, Ildjarn finally began to release a stream of albums midway through the 90s, the first three albums all coming out over a two year period from 1995 to 1996, the self titled debut, Forest Poetry and Strength And Anger. After that, Ildjarn would go on to explore a radically different style of music via a series of largely ambient recordings that were co-produced with new member Nidhogg; these later albums were icy, serene synthesizer driftscapes that, while pretty enjoyable for fans of dark 70's-style space music, were more like Tangerine Dream and nothing like the band's roots in crazed blasting violence. Those first three albums remain essential assaults of primitive Norwegian hatred though, and anyone who has been grooving on the filthy, violent aggression of bands like Bone Awl, Willing Feet, Malveillance and Sump in recent years needs to get their hands on these records as soon as possible. Not that that was easy until recently; these albums were all tough to find in the past, so the new Season Of Mist reissues are much appreciated. Now available on both CD and on limited-edition gatefold 2xLP (hand-numbered in an edition of five hundred copies) with new and improved album art, all three are crucial attacks of frostbitten necro-punk barbarism.
  By 1996, Ildjarn's obsession with 70s-style kosmische electronic music was fully underway, and the band's second album Strength And Anger was released almost simultaneously with another 2xCD release titled Landscapes that exclusively featured his minimalist electronic driftscapes. Here, though, the savagery was still the focus, with an utterly and completely blown out assault that is considered by many to be Ildjarn's finest black metal work. Could Ildjarn's primitive punk-influenced black metal get any more deconstructed and raw than the blackened howling frenzy that was the band's self-titled debut album? Listening to the first fifteen tracks on Strength And Anger, I'm inclined to think so. Simply titled "Strength And Anger" parts one through fifteen, these tracks deliver a near nonstop barrage of droning riffs and pounding, crudely played drumming, the guitar often lost in an inebriated, drooling mono-chord drone while Vaaer hisses and screeches over the murky fuzz-infested din for nearly forty minutes. It's pretty much the apex of atavistic black metal, and these tracks perfected the sort of ultra-raw blackened punk savagery that would later be tapped by bands like Bone Awl, Malveillance and Sump. This album in particular has had its share of detractors, but if you've got a taste for deliberately monotonous noisy black metal, it really doesn't get better than this. The first half features a ton of ferocious riffs, and again has a smattering of some of that discordant, almost noise-rock like sound that showed up on a bunch of songs on Ildjarn's debut.
   But then the sound of the album changes completely with "Black Anger (Hate Meditation I)", the nearly fifteen minute dronescape that follows. At first forming out of a fog of deep sawtoothed sinewaves and rumbling bass, the track shifts into a steady, monotonous synthdrone, an almost unchanging synth chord that stretches out into infinity, the tone changing slightly every few minutes, but for the most part remaining constant in it's buzzing monochromatic minimalism, an almost power electronics-style pulse. That's followed by the short track "Interchange", a final blast of blown-out bass-heavy instrumental necro-punk, a single simple riff repeated ad nauseum, catchy and hypnotic and ugly as hell. And then the closer "Midnight Strength, Black Anger (Hate Meditation II)" delivers another vast minimal driftscape, this one comprised of soft smears of backwards glitch and swells of murky, muffled noise, super abstract and mesmerizing, eventually transforming into another field of crushing synth-drone, a pulsating black core emanating waves of distorted hum, a malignant electronic throb that stretches all the way to the end, and which resembles something you'd expect from Mauthausen Orchestra or one of the other early Italian power electronics outfits, and not at ALL black metal.   © CRUCIAL BLAST
