Nupta Cadavera -- the marriage of the living and the dead. Though this could be taken literally, the idea of nupta cadavera is more metaphysical, the two halves of existence -- life and death -- create the most powerful dichotomy known to humankind. Everything kneels to nupta cadavera, none are safe from its icy grip. Everything lives, everything dies. The Danish black metal unit of the same name (a new member of the Korpsånd circle, which anyone interested in black metal should investigate) embodies this duality, as well as duality as a whole, in their new EP, which can be streamed below.

Dark and shimmering, raw and pummeling, Nupta Cadavera's debut EP encapsulates black metal's own halved existence. There is new-school dissonance to be found, but also a greater sense of harmonic atmosphere, largely thanks to the overhanging keyboards whose constant presence fill the proverbial cracks like a sharp ooze. In these two songs, Nupta Cadavera's own pride is apparent -- a stomping, haughty sort of ambient arrogance which imbues the music itself with a great deal of power. Power in atmosphere, concordance in dissonance, darkness and light. Nupta Cadavera is duality incarnate.
