SORTILEGIA - Arcane Death Ritual CD*
Few contemporary black metal projects are able to do what Toronto duo Sortilegia manage to accomplish with an eerie effortlessness: gesture towards black metal’s dark, raw origins without mocking, mimicking, or damning by faint imitation. On their debut full-length, Arcane Death Ritual, Sortilegia has created something that feels genuinely dangerous.While certainly raw, the production style doesn’t feel like an affectation; there’s a primordial ferocity in the torque and texture of the sound that could not otherwise be captured. Arcane Death Ritual is an exercise in the limits of control, a constantly threatening and ever-shifting restraint. The record seems to be just barely contained, and ever ready to erupt into violence.
