SANGUINARY TRANCE – Wine, Song and Sacrifice EP [Black Metal, Austria]

Beitragvon SgTr » 02.10.2018 19:46



Frantic and riff-laden Black Metal from Austria. Haunting melodies in the 90s vein merged with psychedelic, dissonant parts and intricate song structures.

Three tracks/23 minutes; available on tape (pro-manufactured, first edition of 50 copies) and digitally at https://sanguinarytrance.bandcamp.com


"[...] Just as many spiritually charged, ecstatic and enthusiastic musicians exist within the sub-genre yet few in recent memory channel the head-flinging-backward daze induced by the Dionysian mysteries as Austrian black metal project Sanguinary Trance." - Grizzly Butts

"I hear strains of medieval music in the solemn but seething grandeur of the title track, which grows both increasingly mystical and increasingly savage as it unfolds, and the multi-faceted vocals are harrowing enough to raise goosebumps on the skin.“ - No Clean Singing

"Showing more promise in their first three tracks than many established acts can manage across several releases, ‘Wine, Song and Sacrifice’ imbues their raw-ish black assault with equal doses dissonant horror, Dionysian madness, vampiric melodrama and rhythmic tribal intoxication. The overall effect is a menacing and overwhelmingly sensual high that can be quite dizzying if it hits you just right [...]"
- Black Metal Daily

"‘Wine, Song and Sacrifice’ is a bloodstained love letter to the most iconic of black metal times, but with an unmistakably unique viewpoint on it. With some unforgettable moments that set your teeth on edge and make your hair stand on end, Sanguinary Trance are indeed trance invoking and the feelings it conjures are black magickal."
- The Killchain Blog

"Highly expansive and meditative stuff. Thumbs up."

"Raw and dissonant, Sanguinary Trance’s debut EP Wine, Song and Sacrifice is a solid piece of black metal with a ritual touch and a 'classic' feel. The long title track is an impressively unfolding beast, backed by two shorter and furious finishers."
- Evening Of Light

"It’s extremely easy to get lost in their hypnotic music. Which by the way is a tightknit wall of purposely penetrating noise. I can only imagine what this might feel like to witness live. I could surmise that it would be nothing less than euphoric. Radiating such an intense atmosphere. Quite beautiful really."

"Es ist gut zu sehen (und zu hören), dass die österreichische Szene nach wie vor so vital ist und man sich nicht auf die Großen und Etablierten im Genre zu beschränken hat. Und trotz des viel zu leisen Sounds (den ich in der Wertung mal nicht berücksichtige, da Mix und Mastering ansonsten gut gelungen sind) liegt hier eine EP vor, die sich vor deren Alben in keinster Weise zu verstecken braucht, sondern manchem Altmeister deutlich zeigt, worauf es heute ankommt: Passion und Eigenständigkeit sind hier die Schlagwörter, die sich SANGUINARY TRANCE ohne Zweifel auf die Fahnen geschrieben haben. Ich für meinen Teil bin sehr zuversichtlich, dass man in Zukunft weiterhin mit diesem Projekt rechnen sollte. KAUFEMPFEHLUNG! +++ 8 / 10 Punkten"

„A dramatic, chaotic and mournful start catches the listener’s attention immediately. Technically strong musically, combined with brutal vocals provides a level of chaotic energy that is actually very pleasing to listen to. Clashing vocal styles over the consistently chaotic feel provides another really favourable musical element. “Wine, Song and Sacrifice” continues to be consistently oddly melodic throughout this release while a raw feel adds another almost depressive aspect. Sanguinary Trance is technically tight as a whole; their dedication to their music is reflected in the continual technical aspects they display consistently.“
- Autoeroticasphyxium Zine (second review)

"The unique highlight of "Wine, Song and Sacrifice" is the opening title track. It is a thirteen-minute atmospheric piece with a few exclusive moments. If I had to compare it to someone, I would not be afraid to point out to compatriots Abigor in their golden era. The second track "Carvings" represents the more aggressive but still traditionalist face of Sanguinary Trance. Specially conceived is the final "The Dionysos Whip", which preserves the sound of the nineties, but with the disharmony and the gauntness typical of the much later development stages of the genre. However, as in the title track, the song improves impressively to make a one-second noose at the very end."

"Wine, Song and Sacrifice is truly an EP to behold. Through three offerings it is incredibly varied and unique, each track bringing something different to the gnarled and chewed up blackened table. With ripping riffs, a greatly varied vocal delivery, machine gun drumming and an overall raw and powerful production, Wine, Song and Sacrifice is an excellent EP. This is an unmistakably superb and a very well rounded debut offering."

"If they had not told me that this was from 2018, I could easily guess that it is old material. And every time I hear it I can not stop thinking about Hirilorn, Sacrilegium or even the first Satyricon material; [...] A unique experience; an unparalleled journey of chaos and madness perfectly made through these three tracks that together tell a story of evil and secrecy.
6 stars of 6: A Masterpiece."

"Well bugger me sideways, there aren’t many EP’s that pack this much clout AND vision. All in all, a strong first offering from the fledgling outfit. Whatever visions Sanguinary Trance have witnessed in the twilight, one can only hope they will return soon. For now, allow Wine, Song And Sacrifice to consume you. It’s corrupting tendrils will bury deep into your flesh, ensuring you’ll be hitting repeat into the wee hours of the dreadful night. 8/10"

"Ein theatralischer Auftakt aus hellen Percussions und hymnischen Sechssaitern führt zunächst langsam in die vielschichtigen Klangwelten von “WINE, SONG AND SACRIFICE“ ein, bevor sich der nahezu viertelstündige Titeltrack in ein heftiges Inferno verwandelt, in dem es vor disharmonischen Leads und messerscharfen Tremolos nur so wimmelt. Diese preschen sowohl hektisch-aggressiv, als auch passagenweise deutlich gezügelter und mit melodischen Akustikklängen angereichert aus den Boxen und erschaffen auf diese Weise düster-bedrohlichen Black Metal mit nordischer Note, der trotz eines dominanten Leitmotives recht abwechslungsreich gehalten ist. [...] SANGUINARY TRANCE liefern mit ihrem ersten Lebenszeichen ein kompromißloses Werk mit wunderbar puristischem Black Metal ab, der sich allem Zierrat verweigert und einzig und alleine die ungeschminkte Fratze des Todes offenbart."

"“Wine, Song and Sacrifice” is an album where the maniac and hypnotizing notes are present all around it and that’s what makes it more insane even for the insane Black metal standards. [...] The epic and grad tittle track has lots of moments when you reallt wonder if the musicians know what they are doing due to the dissonances that appear to be out of tune, but that’s exactly the intention. Only a twisted and sick mind could ever imagine an album like this."

"Each of the three tracks constitute a unique offering, bound together by a dense atmosphere and traditional black metal style. What then sets Sanguinary Trance apart is the drive and ability of the project to weave sparks of the baleful, grotesque, and sometimes mystical, into the energy of each track for a visceral listener experience. [...]
Sanguinary Trance has succeeded in crafting a fiery innovation of violence and fervor, heightened by unrelenting tangles of atmosphere and melody. Wine, Song, and Sacrifice establishes Sanguinary Trance as a name to watch out for – and has all the makings of a foundational predecessor to great and wicked works yet to come."
