Gray Souvenir, solo project by a Brazilian artist hidden behind the nickname of Putrefactus. If there's anyone up for a little bit pompous but also definitely full of darkness, noise and atmosphere blackgaze slash black metal, this is, again, a good address in South America.
The first sight is a bit like opposition to the primal scream, it's created when you find out how disappointing the world is, the world you entered with such an enthusiasm. But this album is about something more, it tells the story of "the energy that connects an atom to another. It's about the essential force who makes us exist. (...) The thin line that screams inside yourself in search of a answer". Ambitious.
Talking about music, it's equally elevated. Enormous walls of guitars and electronic backgrounds give way rarely and reluctantly to more peaceful compositions. Two tracks include also vocal that is still hidden behind the mountain ranges of loud music. As it should be, this is how you achieve this atmosphere.
"The First Sight" costs 5 USD.
