Dodsferd
Fucking Your Creation

first encountered Dodsferd mid 2006 when I ordered Desecrating the Spirit of Life from Blackmetal.com based upon one phrase “Nordic-influenced Black Metal is heavily inspired by USBM legend Judas Iscariot” Being a Motorhead purist (the first album I ever bought with my own money was Overkill in 79) I immediately appreciated
the scratchy rasp of a voice and the slowish pace set in a forward direction by steady drumming with plenty of cymbal work and an endless barrage of simply memorable riffs.

Imagine prime Darkthrone shoved back through a Motorhead filter, something everyone should do from time to time, Fucking Your Creation takes the above-described formula and drops it through a Judas Iscariot filter. Moribund released this minus the hacking and spitting and vomiting but still gets the label “skunk-putrid blackpunk lusciousness” from Digitalmetal. The stink of vomit lingers despite the shower that ended Desecrating the Spirit of Life. A bath in Christian blood may take the skunk stink off.

Fucking Your Creation continues the plethora of movie sound samples, this time with a very obvious one. The pace is faster, the guitar sound is cleaner and the amp feedback is virtually eliminated. The vocals have developed into more of a shriek. The final song “Wrath,” named after himself, shows his forked tongue, demonstrating his take on depressive misanthropic black along the lines of Xasthur to go along with the other fork of the tongue, the aforementioned blackened Motorhead. Wrath says in the booklet that the album was written in total solitude and that Dodsferd is a philosophy that only he stands for. Wrath gives thanks to Odin and Akhenaten.

I offer my thanks to Odin as well, thanks for signing Dodsferd to Moribund. With such a blatant album title, you know what he stands for. The song titles reinforce this nihilism. The 12 minute “I Was Welcome Only by Death”, which features some outstanding shrieks, is noteworthy because he barely ever pauses with the vocals for the entire song. A favorite songs on this album as is “And Disease Was Spread In A Matter Of Seconds” which clocks in at nearly eleven minutes. I will join him standing with dignity in the world’s ashes.
