The Metal Wanderlust premieres erratic new track by experimental black metallers MRTVI

While discussing MRTVI in earlier press releases, we spoke about how the black metal project has an aphonic, almost dissonant quality that makes it characteristically experimental in nature, and we followed it up with how the ‘Omniscient Hallucinatory Delusion’ full-length has an immersive thematic structure that’s definitely praiseworthy. MRTVI is also a project that comes alive with an infinitely varied palette of morose perspective and themes, a feat that is rarely accomplished in any genre of music and is always refreshing to spend time checking out.  The Metal Wanderlust premiered Exercise In Mistakes, a track from the latest release, that is truly telling of how much exceptional music one single individual can make on a single record.  You can check out the premiere AT THIS LINK. There’s technicality throughout the song, but what MRTVI really gets you accustomed to is an exceptional atmosphere of near morbidity. An excerpt: 

“Utterly deranged and twisted, it seeks to warp the minds of all who hear, and transform their consciousness into something fetid, something dire, something so very very black, so utterly evil that you cannot even begin to comprehend its malice until it is upon you, and by then, it is too late.”

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.
