Redesekration – Hatred Visions (a 2016 EP review)

Just a day before yesterday there was an interview with Hunter of Borneo, a band from Borneo (Kalimantan) and with Redesekration it seems we will stay there for a while still!

Redesekration is the one-man project of Fauzi Rahman (under the pseudonym of “Blizzard”) and “Hatred Visions” from 2016 is the latest offering from him under this band’s name.

What do we have here? Well, after being exposed to mostly BDM and slamming BDM, it’s nice to enjoy some (ordinary, lol) death metal for a change. Not that I object to BDM/sBDM though!

Released by Estonian label Hexenreich Records (btw, the digipack looks very interesting, I haven’t seen such a solution before), the EP contains 5 tracks in total playing time of 20:22 (Metal Archives state 20:12, and I’m not going to argue, because it’s not the point).

Musically, as was stated, we’re in the realm of death metal (blackened death metal). And that’s very OK with me, if you ask. Obviously, it’s 2021 and even back in 2016 it was quite hard to come with something totally original. And I don’t look for anything like that.

That being said, it’s a death metal EP. Nothing more, nothing less. Thanks to my interest in many genres I am constantly switching between them, so I can enjoy albums for what they are, not for what they are not. For me, Redesekration provides solid 20 minutes of enjoyable music and I guess that’s what matters.

Favourite track? “Crush With Fire Spirit”. That riffing after 2:14 lifts my mood everytime!
