11.06.2014 The nightmarish Swedes return with a short 25 minutes of material left over from the recording sessions of their previous two albums, hence the title. Bearing more structural resemblance to The Purging, but also oozing with the delicious dark ambient cloak that made The Tunnels so good, this EP can be seen as a bit of a bridge between the two, that may also be dropping some hints as to where their sound is going in the future. A bit brief, but for those who simply can't get enough of the band, this release is mandatory.

  "Terra Tenebrosa's V.I.T.R.I.O.L. marks the transformation of The Cuckoo, the main figure behind Terra Tenebrosa, from the albums The Tunnels to The Purging.

This makes totally sense, because the record features two lenghty tracks from both album recording sessions. Side A track "Draining The Well" is once again a nearly 18 minutes long, oppressing journey through both, the dark mind of The Cuckoo as well as the listener's. It finally erupts from dark ambiances into a loud, violent final. Side B track "Apokatastasis" has with just about 7 minutes a more straight-forward approach, with guitars well known from Breach. "Apokatastasis" was the first sign ever from The Cuckoo, it gave birth to Terra Tenebrosa and what became The Tunnels and The Purging. Underlying both tracks are those strange, buzzig vocals, which evoke numerous dark stories and events in the listener's mind. Again and again.

V.I.T.R.I.O.L. - Purging The Tunnels is closing a chapter, it puts an end to the conceptual approach of both albums, The Tunnels and The Purging. The new Terra Tenebrosa according to The Cuckoo is faster, more violent and... ugly."

  Hmm I loved the atmosphere they created and that special sound of drums and guitars, so appealing for my taste

Rating: 8 Haha, I'm not sure this is actually the second track btw. It's from a compilation.

I don't really know how to feel about this . I think faster=more riff based and less droney, which is not a good decision IMO.

Ah, you got me.

Agreed. I prefer their style on tracks like "The Mourning Stars" and "Through The Eyes Of The Maninkari" to "The Arc Of Descent" and "Disintegration"

Aww how cute.

Except the one with the paw on the other's head is actually saying "you're my bitch now."

At least that's what my husky is saying when she puts her paw on another dog's head (or my knee). With other dogs she'll add a nip in with her teeth, just to reinforce the point.

Rating: 8 Better than purging but still not as high as their debut.

  More impressive and enjoyable than their last one.
