I love YOB. This album is yours, in your vinyl collection, right now.
Nothing to Win: YOB (Eugene) (0:28-11:36)
Bastard Sapling is a spin-off of Inter Arma, including a song sung by the lead singer in Windhand (cute girl). One of the best black metal albums I have heard this year: warm, rich, organic, but still black.
The Killer In Us All: Bastard Sapling (VA) (13:25-19:40)
You know Pallbearer. This is more Pallbearish stuff – epic, large, pretty, vocals-heavy.
The Ghost I Used To Be: Pallbearer (Little Rock) (20:28-28:37)
The new American Graveyard that caught the 70’s mullet of Metal Blade.
Behold, The Anunnaki: Brimstone Coven (WV) (29:41-35:14)
Maveth (Finland) and Embrace of Thorns (Greece) came out with an incredible black crazy dark split of awesome filth
The Pits Of Strife: Embrace of Thorns (Greece) (35:50-39:31)
Experimental proggy death from Norway, totes weird and shit.
Hermit Dream: Diskord (Norway) (40:05-45:55)
San Francisco’s very weirdo experimental band that uses dulcimers. Dulcimers.
Dianthus: Botanist (San Francisco) (47:03-49:50)
Irish dark?? Yep.
Killvlad: Weed Priest (Ireland) (50:14-56:44)
Gallo is Gallow now, putting out his interpretation of Italian pagan.
Passer-By: John Gallow (NY) (57:24-END)
