German-based dark, primitive metal trio, VALBORG, will unleash their fifth full-length opus via Temple Of Torturous. Titled Romantik, the follow-up to 2012s Nekrodepression, which Last Rites commended for being consistent with VALBORGs "tradition of strange, compelling German music," further lauding their "patient, measured aggression," features six tracks of somber avant blackened beauty. After four albums based around experimental, skull-crushing doom, with Romantik VALBORG dives deeper into the heart-tearing atmospheres of the abyss of which theyve so boldly explored. Ambient synthesizers collide with wistful guitars, all slowly, purposefully floating above a foundation built upon pummeling rhythms, the bands harsh, German vocal inflections adding further terror their profoundly bleak funeral power doom. Fans of Type O Negative, Vangelis, Killing Joke and Celtic Frost/Triptykon pay heed.
