ESSENZ – KVIITIIVZ – Beschwörung des Unaussprechlichen 2LP
‘KVIITIIVZ – Beschwörung des Unaussprechlichen’ is the debut full-length from Essenz, a truly obscure German Black Metal triumvirate who peddle a unique concoction of blackened doom / death that lingers somewhere between The Ruins of Beverast and Black Sabbath. The Black Sabbath influence is particularly evident. But there’s enough experimentation and general all-round weirdness in the mix to ensure that this should appeal to most BM fans. Essentially, Essenz is a very hard band to rate. If they set out to create an album that fucks with your head, an album that is neither one thing nor another, an album that cannot be pigeonholed or categorised easily – then they have achieved precisely that. ‘KVIITIIVZ – Beschwörung des Unaussprechlichen’ is what it is: an unusual, unorthodox and intriguing puzzle. Featuring members of Drowned and Necros Christos.
Double black vinyl in gatefold cover including insert.
