Beyond calling it “art metal noise”, the music of Plecto Aliquem Capite is hard to define. It’s been called “next level black metal”, but it’s often hard to hear how such a claim was made. The four tracks on their 2016 EP ‘The End’ have a few black metal traits in some of the riffs, but that’s all. ‘The End’ presents the worst excesses of art metal, of avant garde clanking and of general ugliness. It’s possible to suggest that even those who like a musical challenge will be affronted by most of what’s being offered here.
