Although the Brazilian scene is considered fertile when it comes to Black Metal performed along the lines of what was done in the 90s, we can agree that there is a lot of quantity and little quality that permeates Brazilian releases in recent years.
However, this paradigm ends up highlighting bands that lend themselves to keeping the flame of the days of yore alive, without giving up on sounding current or compromising their compositions with mediocre production.
Inexistência is not a strange name for those who are more aware of the most transgressive thresholds of the underground, and the band offers us their most mature work to date.
Previously, those more familiar with the band’s work used terms like “the Brazilian answer to Satanic Warmaster and/or Drowning the Light”, and although the influences remain obvious, “Extinct…” is an album that demonstrates growth and the emergence of a increasingly stronger identity for Inexistência.
Another point worth noting is the production, which despite being clearer than in their previous works, does not fail to preserve the cold aura of arrogant resentment that only Black Metal in its more traditional contours can offer.
“Extinct…” is a long, desolate journey through icy soundscapes that bring to mind the golden days of the not-so-distant past, when Black Metal was something to be feared
