Maestus - Deliquesce Vinyl LP
Maestus Deliquesce Vinyl LP
The Oregon-based band was formed in 2013. An EP called Scarlet Lakes was soon issued. Black/doom band Maestus would release its debut full-length, Voir Dire, in March through Domestic Genocide Records and Glossolalia Records.
A 50 minute slab of charred and filigreed granite channeling frustration, anxiety, and estrangement into a Blackdoom Cauldron. Maestus reflects the principle of misery as it moves through the world in life, death, and memory, and of the ceaseless decay which both precedes and follows it.
First of all has only four tracks and they are all within the eleven-minute average. Title track, “Deliquesce,” opens up with a delicate and picturesque piano and keyboard sequences which drive the listener attention to expect the grand and pompous music. Those expectations are satisfied when the Metal section of the song happens with a grand coming of slow guitar chords and a resounding drumming.
Then, comes the voice; a somber, exquisite, harsh, and gutted to bring out a very different expectation. Just like the opera does. In the middle of it, when we were getting used with the atmosphere, the vibe changes at all with again a slow and pompous piano in a more picturesque playing than the beginning working as a two-minute long bridge to the second somber part of the song. Maestus really know how the meaning of the word somber by having two different darkish voices in a kind of duel. The song goes on in a grand cadence to speed up a little in the end as the expected grand finale.
