Black Metal Daily premieres scathing track by experimental black metallers MRTVI

Have you ever felt gripped by the paralyzing sense of chaos that truly surrounds us, beyond the facades of normalcy and everyday calmness that we make life to be? It’s a feeling akin to realizing how apathetic the world has grown over time, and how its the callousness of its ‘good people’ that lets everything fall into a state of disarray and maladjustment. If you have found yourself pondering about these realizations, the Mass Hallucination track from experimental black metal act MRTVI‘s newest full-length ‘Omniscient Hallucinatory Delusion’ will seem like the discordant angst-ridden death knell-esque lamentation that plays out perfectly to this very sickly feeling. The track premiered on Black Metal Daily along with a detailed interview featuring Damjan Stefanovic, the one-man powerhouse behind the MRTVI music. You can check out the premiere AT THIS LINK. An excerpt: 

“Every note is carefully constructed to a greater design, weaving a startling web of sheer audio disturbance in order to open hitherto unseen and unknown portals of the mind. It’s a harrowing yet enlightening experience and is undoubtedly MRTVI at the height of its considerable and otherworldly powers, deconstructing life itself and allowing us to lay eyes upon the pulsating, labyrinthine systems within.”

Reviews:

– “made for listeners that want to be thrown into a void” – Head-Banger Reviews (US)

– “thunderous and combative”  – Dioses Del Metal (Spain)

–  “very  dark  and  heavy” – Occult Black Metal Zine 8/10

MRTVI from UK/Serbia shocked audiences around the world with their previous album ‘Negative Atonal Dissonance’ which was a surreal experience in black metal experimentation and improvisation. It was almost subconsciously executed with three mammoth tracks blending noise, ambient and black metal music. On their follow up album, MRTVI have concocted shorter songs segregated in four chapters, with the underlying purpose of infiltrating your thought waves and inseminating harrowing sounds that will alter your consciousness. Listening to ‘Omniscient Hallucinatory Delusion’ is like a nightmarish drug-induced trip that will take you to the darkest recesses of your mind and carve out memories that have been long subdued. That is why it is recommended to listen to the album from start to finish, or at least individual chapters collectively, as they represent something significant, a particular altered experience that will evoke feelings of fear and turmoil, and even relief. It’s a parallel hallucinatory experience of the vagaries of life, concentrated and powerful, meant only for the strongest of minds that are able to withstand urban darkness, alienation, rot and horror.
