Woodcut released the demo-MCD Grim Death Awaits as an appetizer to this full length (damn, it took very long, too long), but finally we might welcome the first official full length studio album by Finland’s Vorum. I was very pleased with that 2009’s promotional mini-album, so my expectations were high.
Formerly: Stalaggh, named after a ‘stalag’, which was a Nazi concentration camp, plus ‘-gh’, the abbreviation for ‘Global Holocaust’.
In 2007, when these artists from Holland ended the Projekt Nihil / Terrror (mind the -rrr-!) / Misanthropia-trilogy, a change of name: Gulaggh. A gulag was a work colony at the former USSR, a Soviet working concentration camp, plus ‘gh’ again as affix.
The German project Silent Leges Inter Arma was named after a quote by Cicero, a Roman philosopher and politician. It means something like ‘laws in silence under the weapons’.
Anyway, this act, formed about five years ago, released an EP in 2009, called Synästhesie through Deviant Records, and this self-called record is Silent Leges Inter Arma’s debut full length, having a total running time of forty six minutes.
As a Black / Doom fan, I do know Tim ‘Typhon’ Yatras from bands and projects like Austere, Pestilential Shadows, Woods Of Desolation, Grey Waters, Battalion, Kinstrife & Blood and many others. Apparently Tim has been active within the Electronic and Pop Music scene as well (no further comment), but this review deals with his project Germ, which was conceived in 2003.
