VENTR - Announces Release Date Of Debut EP, Track Available For Streaming

Portuguese mysterious raw black metal band Ventr announces that they will release their debut EP, Numinous Negativity, on 9th of October via Signal Rex. Ventr hail from the current hotbed of raw black metal. While an otherwise-new entity, the rippling 'n' roiling black metal they present across their first public recording, Numinous Negativity, betrays a wealth of experience - an expanse of void-dwelling visions that are startling to behold this early on.

Grim and ghastly, the band likewise exude a strident physicality which transcends most iterations of rawness, and the same could be said for their bewitching melodicism: never soft nor saccharine, these haunting lead-lines duly transport the listener into exquisitely dark 'n' cobwebbed realms. The sum effect of Numinous Negativity, from a musical standpoint, is a medieval malodorousness that's as ancient as it is rottenly fresh.

Ventr build their music on a firm foundation of thought-through thematics. A title like Numinous Negativity should be fairly self-explanatory, but concept-wise, the main focus of the EP is characterizing the "Numinous Negativity" as a spiritual and/or religious form of negative perception - the mysteries in the works within the omnipresence of the Devil.

The first genuflection can be found with the brand-new track "Omnipresent Abominations", which deals with the concept of (negative) illumination through the touch of the Devil's abominations, through witnessing "His Works through the eyes of the Hanged Child", and you can hear in the player below.
