“Blackened ambience at its most hidden and hypnotic”….”
Lovingly pinched from Lurker: Servile Sect is, inevitably, birthed from some genre-specific formula of influence and the parallels are, at times, easy to draw. What elevates their music above and beyond the coils of compartmentalization and inhibited thought is not easy to isolate. Trvth is a monument in its own right. Weaving together a vast canvas of influence that begins with psychedelics, passes the cosmos and lands in the wilderness of self induced free thought – Servile Sect are large in vision and large in sound.
Surpassing the rudimentary hallmarks of ambience, noise, psychedelic hues, drone and black metal all lazy comparisons when it comes to the blitzed euphoria that lies at the center of these drones and rhythms to birth one of the most unique and intriguing records of the year.It can be hypnotic – but certainly not solely because of the psychedelic cadence that permeates the field recordings, for the black metal movements of the song are equally hypnotic.It can be euphoric – though not due to the crystalline clarity that seeps through during moments of climactic intensity, since the shuffled, fuzzed and meandering field recordings are light-bearing enough.It can be aggressive – the relentless ‘solar storm’ assault that out shadows the majority of the second side is justification enough. Yet to hint at this during the more relaxed, trip inducing first side? How can this even come to be?
It is a unique experience. It is avant-garde in the sense that it innovates: there is a path that lies ahead. Too often the avant-garde label has summoned visions of dead ends, projects born in the fire and dying in the ashes. They have ideas that are interesting for one or two albums before dissipating. I get a different impression from Servile Sect. Trvth is a joy to experience. It is an experience that plays on manifold moods and feelings without every growing tiring. It is an experience that I forgot music could antagonize. Available over at Handmade Birds.
