Relic Point - VIXI

New MusicTNDComment

Relic Point's monstrous new LP VIXI is comprised of an hour of sludgy black metal, with elements of drone and doom thrown in for good measure. The Russian outfit proves itself to be adept at crafting downright monolithic pieces, the first two tracks nearing the 10 minute mark and the last track well breaching it. But the band thankfully offers some variety in that regard (mind you, not at all when it comes to aggression!), packing a huge punch as it mostly operates between the five and six minute range, also throwing in a couple of short droning interludes that also manage to come off abrasively. Check this nasty fucker out above!
