AOSOTH, INFERNAL WAR and QRIXKUOR has already confirmed participation in the “Armageddon Descends IV”. Hence another underground revelation joins the lineup – Italian death metal monolith MEFITIC.
Moreover, as previously, “Armageddon Descends IV” will host a second stage with artists performing powerful extreme electronics. First two (out of six) acts – our own local VIDINĖ RAMYBĖ and VELĖMARA
Although MEFITIC has not managed to pick off the laurels of international fame yet, however, they have achieved a quite well-known reputation amongst the underground black/death metal scene. Through more than a decade they have released a number of positively rated releases and also played in various cornerstone festivals, among them the Nuclear War Now! festival. This year MEFITIC has finally released their full-length album, “Woes of Mortal Devotion” which dispelled all doubts – it’s a real dark and cold breathing death metal masterpiece. MEFITIC’s sound is like a hollow echo stemming from an abandoned catacombs – low dissonant vibrations, subhuman roars and diverse compositions causing disastrous visions which actively involve the listener in the process. MEFITIC limits to just a few live performances a year and we are proud that “Armageddon Descends IV” will be one of those rare occasions.
VIDINĖ RAMYBĖ (lit. INNER PEACE) is a noise/power electronics project that rarely performs live. It seems that intransigence towards dominating standards of the scene is a motivating factor behind this unit: he might perform with a professional violinist while discussing suicide, he might drown the audience in a lake of complete analogue feedback with visuals in the background. Even the name of the project seemed a bit strange at the beginning, after each release and performance it becomes more and more understandable.
VELEMARA is a project by Skol (INQUISITOR, NYKSTA) of cold dark ambient/industrial that has risen from the ashes of HAEIRESIS. After the first impressive album, which was release by the scene-leading label Autarkeia, he focuses on live performances that are rare and convincing. It encompasses sounds that have no place for hidden comfort or calmness: it is madness, separation, solitude and death.
