The 5th full length CD for Aderlating finds the duo of Eric Eijspaart and Maurice De Jong returning to Black Plagve for the first time since 2013’s Gospel of the Burning Idols.
Hell Follows takes a somewhat altered approach as it moves away from the ritualistic horror and smothering claustrophobia of past releases, and into a more spacious realm, with more distinguished sounds and clearer instrumentation. That’s not to say that Hell Follows isn’t steeped in atmosphere and dark energy. The 9 tracks are unpredictable, wildly hallucinatory and beguiling…odes to nightmares and flickering visions of torment and anguish, an alchemy of blackened kosmiche keyboard textures, raspy, foreboding voices, and passages of corrosive rumblings, hellish drift, and sinister percussive clangor.
Mories has stated that Hell Follows was recorded live in the studio with less computer processing, and it shows in the amorphous quality of the tracks; a Coil like sense of psychedelia and surreal wooziness to some, a hopelessly dark and apocalyptic feel to others that adhere more to the traditional Aderlating template. Collectively, it’s a wild and mercurial sonic journey that resides on the peripheral of anything Mories and Eric have done to date, and yet at the same time, makes perfect sense within their discography.
