Schammasch
The Maldoror Chants: Hermaphrodite
Company: Prosthetic
Release: 2017
Genre: Black
Reviewer: David Loveless
Published: 6/22/2017

More Avant-garde than brutal but undoubtedly Schammasch!
COMMENTS:
Schammasch wasted no time releasing their 4th album, an EP titled 'The Maldoror Chants: Hermaphrodite', a first in a series of EP's that are based on 'Les Chants de Maldoror.' Just last year they released the impeccable triple album, Triangle, which saw them branch off into new territories while remaining rooted in black metal. Hermaphrodite, much like the 3rd disk in Triangle, shows a more avant-garde approach that Schammasch pulls off flawlessly. Excellent production complements the songwriting and structure as well as the vocals. These songs may not be for everyone but loyal Schammasch fans and avant-garde fans will love this unique album.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Avant-garde Black Metal, Blut Aus Nord, Deathspell Omega
