H.L. I like epic black metal and long tracks, when they are arranged in a thrilling, maybe complex way or when they establish a hypnotic and dreamlike atmosphere through repetitive catchy parts. FLUISTERAARS also got this quite rare talent to keep the tension high in their 15 min. compositions like "Stille Wateren". Good stuff for dark and rainy days! Favorite track: Stille Wateren.

Meatbreak "They excel at initiating rhythms to riff off, similar to motorik krautrock bands, building up intensity by ramping up the melodic ferocity like the greatest of post-rock outfits. But they do this within the framework of straight-up, head-down churning black metal that embodies the beautiful, natural rage the genre was born to convey. "

about

Gatefold CD | Gatefold LP | Digital | Merch
CD/LP presented with gatefold sleeves made of heavy grey recycled card stock.

Even though much has been written and recorded when it comes to extreme metal, Fluisteraars are quite extraordinary in their way of arranging and presenting music. With vast influences concerning the ambience and atmospheric aspects of their craft the dutch trinity is not to be easily stuck in just one plain direction. The early on forged term "Windswept Black Metal" recalling imagery of rain, decay, bleakness and intoxication still to date embodies their own amalgamation of intriguing, atmospheric music.

The band's last year debut album titled "Dromers", was firmly rooted in the fertile soil cultivated by Drudkh, Primordial or even Agalloch, nevertheless built its own aura. Excellent reviews at the press, whilst also garnering end of year list entries and other critical accolades along the way, hailed Fluisteraars as one of the new potent stalwarts of dutch black metal.

Blending the welcoming, epic affair of their debut with more harsh and biting effort's more reminiscent of 90s black metal, Luwte captures the band from a slightly different, yet none less qualitative angle. While the band had already shown their effective vigor with time stretching melodic and edgy grandeur, this second album is very much the more ferocious finished extension to it. An unpolished yet elaborate production with final mastering duties taken over by Patrick W. Engel at TEMPLE OF DISHARMONY perfectly suits the dynamic, intelligent nature of the music.

Sealing the deal the band adds: Fluisteraars takes you on a journey through the mind. A journey where they build the roads, to create the landscapes through which they travel and where they call the seasons. Their strength is drawn from the compelling nature of their music, which captivates you to the point of hypnosis. Leading you unnoticed to the inevitable end of the road, emptiness…
