Zer0 れい – Hellveterra Cassette
Dungeonsoft from the depths of the forgotten mall.
Hellveterra is the latest brainchild of Belgian producer Zer0 れい and 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.
