REVIEW: Neoheresy- Oblawa


Neoheresy- Oblawa Review by Ekaterina K.

Neoheresy was brought into being in the year 2012. After recording the last material named Hellveto “Damnaretis”, it is time for a stylistic evolution resulting in the change of the project’s name.

The Music conception of the Neoheresy horde is directed towards monumental Black Metal with the influence of ancient folk and symphonic music as well as the lyrical, vocal part, and live drums. Some types of electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards, synths and ethnical instruments are being used in this project.

The Musically Neoheresy has an emotional and hegemonic overtone due to the solo character of the performance.
As was mentioned in description, Neoheresy’s genre is black metal. But, surprisingly, there’s only a small part of their music consists from pagan black metal as we used listen to. “Oblawa” is more deep and diverse album with real atmospheric tunes, creating associations with obscurantism of Middle Ages, half-mysterious beliefs of people and witchery.

A lot of additional instruments, choir and symphonic parts create unique atmosphere. It all begins with an intro – “Preludium”, with horse’s hooves sound in the background which adds a bit of intriguing mystery. Vocals is worth to mention – from croak it goes to narrative, as in “Powróca…    ” for instance, which catch the attention along with Polish lyrics.

What differs that album is that there’s no “standard” black-metal guitar riffs and characteristic “heaviness”. Guitar work itself is used as an additive, but perfectly fits in the songs structure. Choirs are presented almost in every song and they give certain volume and epicness to the album. Neoheresy found this golden mean – a lot of elements are used in songs, but sound is not overloaded. It’s hard to classify it to any black metal subgenres, as this album is too original and deep to fit in any frames.

Score: 5/5.

“Oblawa” was released in January 2017 by Elegy Records.
