Murw - in de mond van het onbekende wacht een oceaan

Here’s a mini-review taken form FTTG since I’m too lazy to write my own (you can find mediafire links for this release there):
A darkness unearthed from native soil. "Murw", in Dutch, is the state of mind reached through breaking one's will by violent or insidious means. It is the slavish, panicked compliance of the battered, degraded whore, or the dull receptivity to mental manipulation of the religious cultist. A more suitable name for a band as doomy and sinister as this can not be found. Underlying the "necro" aesthetics is an adventurous heart that strains to make itself known; personally I think it should strain a little harder. There are a lot of great, rather progressive songwriting ideas that come out well, and a few others that are held back by the music's detached nature. Despite this, minor flaw as it is, it's an intriguing first full-length. It's somewhat melodic, gets its atmosphere across with credibility and no two tracks are alike. Excellent stuff, and yes, probably the best Dutch black metal album that I have heard up until now.

Basically I agree with everything said, a really enjoyable and dare I say even original release (some minor hints of Lugubrum). A real gem!
