***Northern Europe 1867: A winter so harsh, a spring so cold and a summer so late. A dead harvest. The failure of the crop meant starvation and thousands and thousands of people died. Bark bread, lichen gruel and families slowly fading away. This bleak period, ended in 1869, resulted in that more Swedes than ever emigrated to Northern America and other places for a better life. Based around those years, Gothenburg's ATTESTUPA here creates an absolutely terrific soundtrack to this misery with their new three-song EP. Exploring the dark past of their native country Sweden, this is a well-executed journey into the never ending well of hopelessness. Into the struggle of nature and mankind. You'll recognize the sound from the RTB LP from last year and the Abisko tape, but here they are taking everything up a notch. The unique production is getting close to perfection, a raw and disgusting thick sonic bliss with a continuous crunch. A sharpened blend of noise, kraut and black metal with a crude melancholic atmosphere. Vocals buried deep under the soil and guitars being more prominent. Organs, screeching metal junk, tape loops. Pounding drums. The recording reeks of bad times and tremendous coldness and it's hard to grasp for air. No hope and definitely no joy. Recorded during the first three months of 2009. Limited to 330 copies on black vinyl.
