No better way to start off the apocalyptical year 2012 than with the unleashing of Alkerdeel's debut full album 'Morinde' upon this world. After a few successful demo's/EP'S, these Belgians are pushing up the ante. It's clear Alkerdeel has progressed quite a bit since the release of 'Luizig'. Although the familiar elements are still present - raw sludge/doom infused with filthy black metal - the compositions have matured and gained more depth. The lo-fi approach of the previous albums made room for a more thoughtful recording process, making it sound perhaps more accessible but also allows the sound to reveal all its sluggish nuances. But rest assured, Alkerdeel remains Alkerdeel: a mean putrid steamroller that takes no prisoners. If you're a fan of Darkthrone, Burning Witch, Wolves In The Throne Room, Beherit, Mount Eerie, this one's right up your alley! Mastered by Tom Kvalsvoll in Strype Audio, Oslo. Intro and outro by Mories from Gnaw Their Tongues With ex-members from Thee Plague Of Gentlemen, Serpentcult, Len'tche and Headmeat!
