CD, Norma Evangelium Diaboli, 6 panel Digipak, 2022
New Zealand Black/Death Metal
“Adumbration of the Veiled Logos” is but a 58-minute interpretation of the ungraspable numinous from five angles. It speaks of the shrouded paradox of divine desolation—twining ferocity, solemnity and utter immensity through the coalescence of black and death metal.
Two years from intention to completion and recorded across two diametrically opposed continents, Verberis’ sophomore album is a work that has undergone yet further refinement from 2018’s “Vorant Gnosis” EP, and the band’s antipodean wellspring.
An evolution spurred by the clearing of vision and honing in upon the specific essences most relevant to it, “Adumbration of the Veiled Logos” is a monument whose aural intensity is matched both by the arresting artwork of Ars Alchymiae as well as the album’s metaphysical subject matter.
As with the preceding EP, the foundations of “Adumbration of the Veiled Logos” were received by DA (guitars) and then actualised through the indispensable expertise of JSM (percussion), NH (vocals) and MP (bass)." - noevdia.com
