To begin to understand the spiritual immensity of ADAESTUO's Krew Za Krew, one need only look to some of the album's English-language song titles for keys to their cosmic creations and times: among them, "Subterranean Fire," "Shadow Pilgrimage," "Death Transition," and especially "Transcendental" and "Monument." Indeed, Krew Za Krew is a transcendental monument, threaded together like a fever dream collapsing in on itself, expanding outward and downward simultaneously. Black metal is undoubtedly the foundational language here, but by no means is it the dialect. The black metal surges and swirls, grimly aware of its inherent power, heaving in its brute physicality, but often disintegrating into nightmarish ambience that's equal parts modern classical, musique concrete, and nuclear fallout...only to be rebuilt again, back into blacker metal.
