It̶ ̶s̶e̶e̶m̶s̶ ̶a̶s̶ ̶t̶h̶o̶u̶g̶h̶ I've been covering a lot of one man bands as of late: Yurei, Elysian Blaze, Wormlust... and now my multi-instrumentalist fetishes turn east from Iceland to the land of good cheese and regulated prostitution centers. As a disclaimer, I want to maintain a sense of subjectivity with this review for Mories's latest Cloak Of Altering offering. Each of his releases up to this point, from the Ophiucus-labeled Nihilistic Cosmic Concept to 2012's Ancient Path's Through Timeless Voids has been a unique and distinct creation in and of itself: his work, much like Devin Townsend's, hops all over the place with each output while retaining its core sound. This latest result of Mories's twisted, avant-garde approach to black metal is no different. So settle down and find a dark, quiet place to listen kiddies, because there's something far more potent lurking in Holland than marijuana.
- Hey man! What's up?
- Oh nothing... Mories released yet another piece of extreme art that challenges the foundations of black metal and extreme music in general. Throwing industrial, ambient, noise, dissonance, electronic touches and who knows what into the equation to get a result that can only be achieved by a mad man. Surprisingly mellow and melodic at some points though. But still, this is... You know, the usual magnificence.
- As always, meh.
