sinistralsounds So fucking consistent and strong right out the gate! This project is amazing!. Favorite track: III.

Metallurgical Fire The vocals here are outstanding. The riffs are familiar, and yet they sound better than most of what I’ve heard recently. This is my second favorite black metal release of the year so far. Det eviga Leendet fans should like it quite a bit. Favorite track: III.

Jeff Richardson Fairly excited with this release; any time there is a new form of originality; a quality rare, especially in these times of ours. Almost feels like the start of a new departure or era. Favorite track: I.

bald-rob Only needed to hear it once & it was an instance purchase. Damn fine black metal with clean vocals that I didn't expect, but found too compelling & pleasing to not get lost in. Favorite track: III.
JT EXTREME thumbnail
JT EXTREME Exciting 2020 black metal debut with a varied but interesting vocal performance: hellish screams for the plums, King Diamond screeches for the loins, and non-cringey cleans for the soul Favorite track: I.
Dork thumbnail
Dork Oh, my! Ossaert’s Bedehuis is a screamer! Having listened to the EP in full several times, I can safely say it is a very relaxing (hypnotic) listen. Quite soothing in its abrasiveness. Expect melodic repetition and subtle variations coupled to harsh vocals and over-the-top yet fitting cleans.

I have to say: the Dutch black metal scene has taken flight during the past half decade!

These guys should play DB's in Utrecht soon--I expect no less.

Zwolle’s, NL, solitary Black Metal entity OSSAERT has completed its first full-length recording and will unload it upon the masses through Argento Records on February 14th 2020.

Fuelled by hatred and disgust towards everything sacred, “Bedehuis” is a superbly written debut that balances an almost theatrical dramatic charge with a malignant atmosphere which permeates through every sound wave of the record.

This 35 minute long sonic journey seamlessly shifts between savage Black Metal predatory aggression and contemplative melodic passages, wall of sound pummelling oppression and a subtle but omnipresent macabre beauty.

“Bedehuis” will be available on limited blood/smoke vinyl, black vinyl and digital on February 14th, with more formats following later.
