Maxime The perfect mix between Dungeon Synth, Vaporwave and Black Metal. Creating haunting melodies that will get stuck in your head for days. Especially the vinyl version of this record sounds MASSIVE. Without a doubt the best “ambient” release of the year so far! Would recommend 6/7. Favorite track: Transcendental Column.

Di11ingham This beautifully bridges the gap between black metal and vaporwave. With the tempo slowed down on guitar riffs, the echo immersed, electronic flickers and all of the other essence one would expect in a run down Palm Mall, this is most definitely a wonderful journey into sound. Favorite track: Transcendental Column.

Derek Power You thought Dan Bell (and peers) going through abandoned or dead malls was unsettling ... imagine a dead mall in the middle of a dead world. And we are talking dead. And dark. And heavy. Basically, brutal and metal.

Theo Cordner Think of your favourite JRPG. Think of the nostalgia that waves over you when you listen to its soundtrack. Now take that nostalgia and replace it with a feeling of dread, unknowing and apocalypse. This is Hellveterra. A brilliant mix of classic Vaporwave and Mallsoft tropes, spliced in with the post-apocalyptic styles of dungeon synth and dark ambient. What a powerful album! Favorite track: Transcendental Column.

about

Dungeonsoft from the depths of the forgotten mall.

Hellveterra is the latest brainchild of Belgian producer Zer0 れい and his second vinyl release to date. Taking a sharp thematic and sonic departure from early 2019’s “ブラックマジック (Black Magic)”, which had heavy oriental themes and a more cinematic approach, Zer0 れい now sinks his teeth into the controversial legacy of the Dungeon Synth genre.

The album combines heavy swathes of Dark Ambient with a playful yet respectful take on Black Metal riffage that eschews guitars in favor of wobbly, gritty and sometimes playful synth chords. Underneath these dungeonous riffs there swirls a myriad of new-age inspired pads, panflutes and chiptune-esque accents.

Taking mixing cues from lo-fi Symphonic Black metal albums such as the early works of Summoning, the album rounds out with cavernous layered drums to borrow and steal from both classic electronic drummachines, ethereal percussion and the grittiest of 32-bit era retrogames.

Legendary producer t e l e p a t h took up the challenge of mastering this unholy marriage and managed to polish all this up to a mirror sheen.
