Uwer ter Ere Reviews

Reviewer :  level   (70/100)

"Uwer Ter Ere" means "Yours in Honour", which sums up how I sometimes feel about this release. Moving on from the impressive demo that was "Magdestein", this demo experiments a little more with melody than pure aggression. "Satyriasis" focuses on smooth keyboard sections, adding a bridge between the slow and drawn out brooding main riffs.

If somehow the image on the artwork of the Moon about to utterly consume a dead tree didn't make it obvious, this continues the drama and terror themes that the music was so flawlessly able to convey previously. Although slower and less inspired; strictly due to the compression of the entire release - it literally sucks energy out of you and is very slow and very dark, "Uwer ter Ere" consists of debatably the best track ever composed by Gwydion - the Lingedal track "Where the Forest Talks, the Trees Speak of Us". Lingedal was an ambient/metal side project of his with numerous private releases; any opportunity to excavate this material is highly appreciated.

The reasons why this release works for me are a little more fluid than a simple "it's really well written" - this demo adds ambience and bluster to the contrast that was "Magdestein". Organs, deep bass effects, plenty of keyboard and synth work, and a touch of the amateur dramatics provide Galgeras with the one thing they really needed at the time to succeed as a black metal band - the ability to conform outside of the standard raw, hateful sound.

If anything, the accusations here are that the group tried far too hard to stand out. The demo is a little short of Galgeras material, instead filling itself with the aforementioned lengthy Lingedal tracks. As gratefully as they're recieved, it reads almost as an afterthought, like the group didn't quite know what this demo was trying to do, or how to end it.

Can we really vex over such trivialities? Back in 2002, I'd have rolled with a comfortable "no", but fifteen years later, over-bloated and jaded with the never ending revolving door of new bands and demos, it's all too familiar and easy to forget. It still sounds great though, and i remember the days when this material was first announced with nicely fitting rose-tinted glasses. Once I take those off, i'm left with a good but entirely too demanding release.
