SCAR SIGHTED (2015)
Parecía que de un tiempo a esta parte la obra de Wrest comenzaba a dar síntomas de agotamiento, sus álbumes había comenzado a virar hacia terrenos que sus seguidores no estaban del todo satisfechos con ellos y estos cuatro años de silencio aunque sirvieron para que crecieran las expectativas, también sirvieron para que medraran las dudas. "Scar Sighted" podemos decir que es un buen álbum pero no sencillo ni accesible. Si tenemos presente unos comienzos atmosféricos y una tendencia hacia el black depresivo, serán bastantes los que no acaben de entender la presencia de partes death y sobre todo un gusto por el black más vanguardista que forma de intrincados cambios de ritmo e inclusión de ciertas melodías tanto vocales como musicales. Pero también este es un álbum que agradará a sus más fieles seguidores, un álbum que conserva la atmósfera opresiva y oscura de tintes depresiva marca de la casa, rodeada de mucha más violencia y agresividad de mano de un apartado de producción francamente muy bueno que corre a cargo del mítico Billy Anderson, por que pese a quien pese estamos ante un álbum que en su hora de duración agradará a los seguidores tanto de la vertiente más clásica de género como a aquellos que agradecen de la mutación y vanguardia dentro del black. (7,9).

2. The Smoke of Their Torment 06:04
Rejoice
Flower of worms begats the sword shown the world of perfidy
Rejoice
Awakened now and unmerciful
You shall have all nations in derision
Becoming the catalyst of indignation
March towards wicked transformations
Slither from mine pallet that I might maintain your living ash
Living ash
Consume them with your fire
Rejoice
Flower of worms begats the sword shown the world of perfidy
With poisoned arrows
Consume them that they may not be
Enveloping them with delicious suffering
Rejoice
Flower of worms begats the sword shown the world of perfidy
Consume them that they may not be
And deliver much agony
The mass crucifixion of the sons of Adam
Dispatched by ignious ophidian
Constained abyssal order
Announcing the true fruits of the fall
Become the catalyst of indignation
Rejoice
And with terrible and tyrannical death
Oh, restore us again
3. Dawn Vibration 06:28
His beacon severes vision
Again alight from under
Crossing out their eyes
All vision ignored
Erasing the murmurs
Not want an utterance
Name and shape still unrevealed
Stabbing at the years he holds this audition
Dismantling all vessels of labor
Stumbling to reach the inception
No more can we be found
For belief cannot be seen
It is the frequency of day
Commencing with dry stutters
Begins the nucleus
We are found no more
But a scarred key
And the altered ticket
And tremendous ficitons
Subterrestrial illuminations
We are found
No/thing
But one piece of his whole  
4. Gardens of Coprolite 05:39
Within highest praise
And sought subjugation
Within woe and squaller
Countenance ever fallen
Dawning
The leering break of day
And penitence
Unto gowns of sacrifice
Unscathed nor weary
The Gardens of Coprolite
The Gardens of Coprolite
All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up and like the wind our sins sweep us away
The Gardens of Coprolite
Deceiving within your own selves
Shunning libelous laws
Therefore, the word, not flesh, is lived
The Gardens of Coprolite
And again the staggering vomit vexations

Manifesting in the hearts of man
5. Wicked Fields of Calm 05:45
Recitation from tomes of trepidation Peering up the frock of glory within wicked fields of calm The lesions lessons His image ever a reminder Iconic respire Thesis ever unaltered Endless veils ever hidden Now they have lifted the shrine Passing the seed through fire Visage of the abyss set against you Holy! Holy! Holy! Most savage of faiths His mark Holy! Holy! Holy! Ever igneous tongue of eremitic gospels 
6. Within Thrall 05:37
The death of the gloaming Ever your derision Within a cocoon of falsity Again turn mine place where knives lay Turn it toward your laments All encompassing compromise Leech of leper lives The gloaming is buried Turn it toward your laments Mine place where knives lay Long repudiated tears  
7. A Veil Is Lifted 06:18
 Flaming serpent of orbs
Fall unto the hands of this angel
Five hundred years tall
Unremoved of spirit
Flaming serpent of orbs
Five hundred years tall
Waiting certain and shorn
Within barren searches
Five hundred years tall
And unremoved of spirit
Dei Desertionem
Churning
Always growing
Churning
Always groaning
Roaming salacious and insatiable
Not destroyed by the glorious
Permitting most obscene tantra
Venenum Deus
How you knew the dusk
Ever
Divine courtesan

Dei Desertionem
8. Scar Sighted 10:02
Amidst these worn hearts Increase pressure Oh the diamond of misery Jewel of such oblivion Pacing again Still no reply For where purpose wilted Loss and regret bloomed Life after life Learning no/thing Within final extremity Beside the last breath exhaled And again pale to the center Stumbling Stuttering Nil light reigns Only tattered accusations Paling to the comparison Now utterly drained And all wonder is banished Life after life Absorbing Nothing 
9. All Tongues Toward 08:24
Tracing the circle; serpent's diamond One and all now black Maw overflowing with dense menses Tracing the circle; serpent's locutions Shiny the slattern form Holiest of devourments Sacred Tracing the circle; serpent's thunderbolt The acolytes of filth Rinsed in vice and glorious knavery Made as the filth of the world In much fear and trembling Head shorn in prophecy Baptised in opaqueness Slattern despot Within such turpitude Tracing the circle; serpent's thunderbolt Mask of Lilitu Readies the blade of Cain Down diamond flights But a single clutch of ashes All tongues toward the void Olding and encircling time A saturn beyond mortal perception Within her briar fortress  
10. Aphōnos 07:43
 All are both
All are oblivion
All are alive
All are extinction
Attempts so tragic
Origin of ritual
Upon your knees
Singing
But still on your knees
Fraudulent Thaumiel
Colorless polycephalic evolution
Hanged by your own
Tighten the sword
Veil of mad spirits
Tethered in roily belief
And I can smell your fear again
Paralyzed by doubt
Writhing
Ever within your own consciousness
Trapped in division
Barren
Tethered in roily belief
Upon your knees
Singing
But still on your knees

Often overlooked, but never disappointing, Darvulia has consistently produced some of the most unique Black Metal of the last decade. The band’s sparse catalog reflects its dedication to and the complexity of its work. The material on this new release is a departure from the band’s previous releases, however. Consisting of a single, 17-minute track of ritualistic and atmospheric improvisational music that defies simple categorization, Darvulia’s side of this split finds the band exploring more ritual and ambient territory. Sektarism, a band that also hails from France and features a member of Darvulia, provides a sprawling 20-minute track for the B-side of this release. Sektarism’s unique brand of bleak, ceremonial doom is an appropriate rejoinder to Darvulia’s morose presentation. While Darvulia’s side is sparse, Sekatarism’s sound is full, oppressive, and pulverizing. It is persistent in its approach – repetitive, but not monotonous. As Sektarism’s track progresses, it breaks apart and disintegrates into noise laden bass drones that approach the minimalism that characterizes Darvulia’s side of the release. In this way, this split reflects a concerted approach by both bands to attain an atmospheric consistency will still retaining the unique stylistic flourishes of each band.

Limited pressing of 250 copies on black vinyl.
