Rating: 8 Debemuir Morti just announced this via their Facebook. Unbelievably excited for this. A split between these two can only be apocalyptic (in a good way)

  Good news everyone indeed.

Rating: 8 To be honest, I'm more excited for the P.H.O.B.O.S part of this split as BaN treats us with its music on a regular manner and we recently had two BaN records.
Hopefully, something similar to the 2nd album of phobos will appear again.

You spelled "3rd" wrong.

Not that his 3rd album is not good, but seriously the 2nd one is unbelievable. The best thing I came across for the first time in 2013. It's hard to believe that an album could be able to reach the level of heaviness of it. Like khanate playing industrial blackend doom. "blackend extreme sludge industrial drone doom metal" or something like it D:

The tag I invented sufficiently describes their sound ;0)

Mr. Doctor - 15.04.2014 at 20:32  
  I'm not hearing the sludge in P.H.O.B.O.S. at all. An after all the tags, the word extreme is way too redundant, even if it was done only half-serious.

  Brand new song:

Rating: 7 Whoa, the drums sound so... organic. Kind of odd. Not a bad thing though, just different. The solo / clean section also sounds a little different from the usual, though only subtly. Also strangely headbangable in the latter quarter.

What an excellent song. Probably the freshest the band has sounded in a while.
Pazdzioch - 22.05.2014 at 13:58  
  Yeah. The real drums are a nice addition here.

I'd be surprised if it was. I don't think that'll be anywhere near as industrial-oriented.
Vombatus - 22.05.2014 at 14:55  
Rating: 8 The song fuckin' slays, that second half.... The drums are excellent, hope they use the same for mviii (I like it more than the drum-machine that only works better for the industrial thinggy).
mz - 22.05.2014 at 16:47  
Rating: 8 Pretty surprised by this, because it is a part of aplit with PHOBOS. I expected something more industrial. I generally prefer drum machine over real drummer but on this track I think the drums are doing well, given the not so inhumanized approach to songwriting.Hopefully, as stated, MVIII will sound like this.
Love the final part and those chung-chung riffs.

Funny you say that. It might not have programmed drums but this is still industrial metal. I certainly wouldn't call it black metal apart from maybe a few passages (though I think it sounds more like more faster paced industrial than black in the latter third or so), which is why I don't think MV:III will sound anything like this.

I'm 100% sold on the drums though. They really work. Those clean vocals in the background are great too. As it stands this is best thing they've done since Liber II. Towers massively above Debemur MoRTi, which I really haven't bothered with since I first heard it.

Sounds pretty good. Not quite Atonal Hypermnesia level but definitely better than the stuff before it (better than the new Godflesh single too )

Of course it is industrial, but I generally expected it to be more free of soul and dehumanized.
Also, you say it's the best thing since liber II like they have done 1434314134 albums after it . We still need the other 2 tracks but certanily love everything they've done after Liber II, and also DM was great.

The bad thing is that I cant listen to PHOBOS part right now :'[
Edit: fuck it, I'm listening to it right now.
Cynic Metalhead - 22.05.2014 at 20:28  
  Ooh, that drumming was fantastic indeed. Classic.

I really need to put this one up on my watchlist asap. I love Enslaved. I guess I never hate their any work( including bad works if they have. I tend to didn't find any one of 'em.)

Well it's been 2 years and 3 release since Liber II. More than most bands would put out in that amount of time

Also, I've never felt BaN were free of soul even at their most industrial. In fact sometimes they have more on those releases.

  1st part of the song kind of reminds of bands in the vein of <code>, virus, fleurety, dodheimsgard, ved buens ende and infinite other ones

Well, I may not be much of help here. There was a time which I got addicted to this serie of videos by this guy and remember that he recommended a lot of bands like that, but I forgot the names because I'm not very much into it. =P
Perhaps if you crawl into the videos you'll find something nice there.
I remember a few names: Thorns, Manes, Solefald, Vehementer Nos, IYI, Smohalla... But I remember there was a lot more

Haha, holy shit, I meant Blut Aus Nord.

Actually, I was listening to Enslaved when I posted that message.

Rating: 7 Good EP. Unfortunately none of the other tracks here match up to the brilliant 'De Librio Arbitrio' song, but BaN's other ones are still pretty good.

P.H.O.B.O.S.'s side is decent but a little repetitive, even irritating at points. 'Ahrimanic Impulse Victory' is a good finisher though.

Hate it so much when the best song of an album is the preview one.... Already happened with Liber III and now this (I still have to check, but I guess you will be right )

I guess it depends what you like. The second BaN track is a bit Cosmosophy-ish, and for me goes on a bit with the effusiveness, and the last BaN track sounds like a more standard industrial track we've heard from them before. Still all good tracks though.
mz - 31.05.2014 at 19:21  
Rating: 8 More surprise from this split. I really did not expect to see BaN go on cosmosophy side here. Not that it's a bad thing, though as I really love cosmosophy.
PHOBOS side is not bad either, and Glowing Phosphoros is fantastic. Think that vocals are too similar to those of Vindsval on this.
Overall, really excellent split. The BaN side is fantastic, and PHOBOS is also good. Hopefully, we will see more music De Librio Arbitrio in the future.

Rating: 8 Ahrimanic Impulse Victory is my favorite song of the split. It's simply breathtaking and, in my opinion, serves as an excellent closer to the whole thing
