After finishing up the writing Sottklugt for Shagor in 2019, P. started writing under the name Ossaert. This resulted in the 2020 record ‘Bedehuis’ and 2021 record ‘Pelgrimsoord’. To put it in the words of Argento Records “Fuelled by hatred and disgust towards everything sacred “Bedehuis” is a superbly written debut that balances an almost theatrical dramatic charge with a malignant atmosphere which permeates through every sound wave of the record.”
“While the core and skeleton of the sound of “Bedehuis” remains intact, “Pelgrimsoord” expands towards vaster horizons and adds an almost majestic layer of dark solemnity to what delivered in the previous release. “Pelgimsoord” immortalises its oath to the dark side with immense class and invigorated heretic ardor, superb riffing and a terrifying vocal performance at times not afraid of paying its tribute to the unholy Gods of Heavy Metal.”
Following two full-length tomes, the prolific wraith manifests itself yet again with a stint of uniquely profane savour, an act of unshackling spiritual puissance under the sign of “Offerdier”.
Throughout four unhallowed musical creations, Ossaert ravishes the dark night of the soul with a purge of tenebrous black metal where the ether is enraptured by immense guitar riffs, piercing as rusty daggers plunging through the inner self, sustained by a dynamic pulsing drumming, as diverse as it is stands overtly organic and robust. Such traits blossom by way of a well-balanced aural quality, granting an oppressive essence on reckless blast-beating passages, yet making room for contemplative, further atmospheric sections.
In the centre of such intense turmoil, an ecstatic narrator bewails in delight death of the self, rejoicing the feeble ways of the gods’ will, liberating the soul of its chains. As an act of real blasphemy, this howling voice exults true liberation, for it is wholly achieved by utmost destruction. There is no way back.
