Fifth EP by Norwegian Progressive Black/Avant-garde Metal band.
Fleurety took the format to bewildering new lands, dabbling in Jazz, Electronica and Avant-garde long before the experimental BM album became a worrying cliche. Sadly, Fleurety only gave us two full-lengths proper but over the past few years they’ve been trickling out new material on a series of 7”s on long-time home Aesthetic Death. "Et Spiritus Meus Semper Sub Sanguinantibus Stellis Habitabit", an epic title that translates as “And I will always live under the blood-stars” is the third in the series and its proof that true innovators never really stop. A rival to Fleurety’s past work in both technicality and complexity, Hatlevik and Nordgaren have pulled off a skilled ensemble performance on "Et Spiritus…", the session performers’ times in Virus and Arcturus giving them plenty of experience with such oblique structures, and the result is a remarkably smooth performance, even as the songs themselves seem to spiral headlong into the cliffs of bewilderment. It may be a cliche but it’s difficult not to throw words like ‘inspired’ around in the light of such work: Fleurety might be Avant-garde darlings and they certainly owe a great deal to the likes of John Zorn and Arvo Part but this is as fierce a Black Metal release as you could hope to find.
