Rumoured said there will be no more albums and the project is dead. But no, that would have been too easy. Stratvm Terror had just gone underground, hiding for their next terrorising attack. Now they are back after 15 years with their new assault: ‘Love me tender, or I will cause Pain’.
This album is filled with seven oppressive and depressive weird obscurities to ease or cause you pain, depending on your inclinations. Massive layers of corrosive darkness with occasional injections of ominous noise sounds and claustrophobic vocals makes this an utterly end-of-life experience.
The Swedish doom ambient industrial noise project Stratvm Terror consists of doom metal guru Tobias Larsson (Ocean Chief) and dark ambient master Peter Andersson (raison d’être). They started the band in 1993 and released a great number of albums in the late 90’s and early 00’s, on Old Europa Cafe, to finally take a longer break around 2008. With ‘Love me tender, or I will cause Pain’ the project celebrates their 30 years anniversary with no happiness, only sweet pain.
