VALDRIN - Two Carrion Talismans (CD)

VALDRIN are one of the metal underground's best-kept secrets. Hailing
from Ohio, VALDRIN formed in 2010 with the intent to play a unique form of
black/death metal using a lyrical concept called the "Ausadjur Mythos." This
story combines many aspects of various ancient mythologies and occult
practices, all synthesized into one grandiose tale, told through the eyes of
the protagonist Valdrin Ausadjur. The debut album Beyond The Forest was
released in June 2014, garnering critical acclaim in reviews through many
different zines, including Decibel. Since the release of Beyond The Forest,
VALDRIN have been playing various live gigs throughout the American
Midwest while completing the recording of their second album, Two Carrion
At last upon us, Two Carrion Talismans sees VALDRIN going from strength
to strength. Undoubtedly death metal through and through, there is a
pervasive sense of strangeness that seeps through every nook and every
note of Two Carrion Talismans. Its compositions endlessly spiral and
shapeshift upon themselves, all whilst maintaining a highly memorable
quality; VALDRIN are truly grounded in METAL music, but choose death
metal as the primary platform. And yet, with their seamlessly blended usage
of synths adding a most haunting and even levitational quality, Two Carrion
Talismans takes on a decidedly blackened aspect, imparting a sense of
mysticism and even wonder to their muscular attack. It all blends together
into a deliriously dark and daresay velvety experience, like drowning into an
inky beyond much like the cover art's protagonist.
All told, VALDRIN in general and Two Carrion Talismans in particular impart
a truly unique timelessness, one that feels vaguely/specifically mid '90s
"retro" on the surface, but more accurately - and more beyond/below said
surface - an incredibly nuanced and textured approach to craftsmanship
and narrative voice that soundly puts it in a class all its own. With more
touring across the USA planned for this year, Two Carrion Talismans
grandly marks the arrival of VALDRIN!
