Hic Iacet - The Cosmic Trance into the Void
The mysterious Spanish entity of HIC IACET is rumored to include various movers 'n' shakers of the underground, and also equally rumored to be a solo-project of one supremely sick individual. Five members or none, HIC IACET's debut demo Hedonist of the Death floored anyone who heard it, especially when it was reissued on 12" vinyl and sold out almost immediately. The band followed it was the equally gutsfucking Prophecy of Doom 7", bettering their barbarity that much more. And at long last, HIC IACET emerges from the funeral fog with their highly anticipated debut album, The Cosmic Trance Into the Void. As suggested by its title as well as mystical cover artwork, The Cosmic Trance Into the Void displays a more dynamic, daresay transcendental HIC IACET. Whereas the band's previous works firmly situated themselves between bestial black metal and morbid death metal, here on their debut LP, HIC IACET meld both poles into a throbbing mass that mesmerizes and malforms the listener in equal measure. Its pulse is ritualistic and yet never less than savage: pure, undiluted physicality that seeks to transform the psyche, both of practitioner and receiver. A cavernous womb/tomb of pestilence, echoing sepulchral bellows from nameless depths, The Cosmic Trance Into the Void will take you there...
