Like many of my coworkers here at Invisible Oranges, my shit was thoroughly rocked by Ævangelist’s Enthrall to the Void of Bliss last year. That record was a perfect example of how extreme metal could still be a viable and challenging force, even if it was only one amongst many in Ævangelist’s belt. It’s not much of a shock then, that Death Fetishist, a collaboration between Matron Thorn of Ævangelist and Panzergod’s G. Nefarious, sit just as comfortably on the cutting edge. The difference is that Death Feitishist focuses on extreme metal, and black metal in particular, with singular intensity on Clandestine Sacrament. The album is more traditional than Enthrall to the Void but only in an extremely relative sense. Given how unerringly dissonant and nightmarish the record is, it’s hard to imagine that Sacrament is anyone’s idea of easy listening. But here Thorn’s songwriting hues a bit closer to the work of other underground acts like Mispyrming, whose singer D.G. makes an appearance on “Voidtripper”, streaming below The motifs at play are recognizable to any black metal fan, but Death Fetishist push them to a level of psychedelic abstraction.
