Null – The Acheron of Multiform Negation”

2013

Kozeljnik cover

Some bands put their own creative spin on the familiar black metal formula. These types of risks help a band to stand out among the crowd. Sometimes, such risks can improve a band’s music, but they don’t necessarily guarantee that the release will be a genre-rocking masterpiece. Enter Serbian band Kozeljnik. They are an inventive and interesting black metal combo. The band’s 2013 EP Null: The Acheron of Multiform Negation is the second EP this band has put out and their fourth release overall. Null is a creative and interesting EP that works as an epic, sweeping, black metal experience. This EP is packed with six dense songs. Only one of the songs is under the five-minute mark. Most of the time, Null creates a hostile black metal atmosphere that accompanies the huge razor sharp guitar and blasting drums. But, there are a few times that musically, Null becomes a blur. Too much is going on at once and it becomes a slightly confused experience. These moments are not frequent. Most of the time, Null works well. K is on vocals/bass/guitar and he fills the triple role incredibly well. His singing is quite unique and combines a traditional black metal rasp with a tormented bellow. Kozeljnik took the risk of not conforming to what is traditional and come out with a great EP. A lesser band could not have pulled this off. And there are only two members in this Serbian band. Well done.
