Myrkur was anonymous, and now no more. It is a one-person project by a Danish and (most likely) hot chick. It was completely addicting. Her style is integrating her angelic vocals with catchy black metal, very atmospheric.
Nattens Barn: Myrkur (Denmark) (0:28-6:11)
Dark sludgy-but-almost-hardcore crusty Clevelandites.
Smoke Cat Hair and Toenails: Fistula (Cleveland) (7:26-12:58)
Now defunct, Mondvolland has some awesome epic melancholy Dutch-language stuff.
Wanneer De Hemel Bloedt: Mondvolland (Netherlands) (13:34-19:25)
Guitarist from Cathedral started a band in Belgium, his dream. He pictured a female singer, and got one from Serpentcult. If you don’t like her vocals, listen again. She is strong and gorgeous. And the band is seriously talented.
Eyes of the Heretic: Death Penalty (Belgium/England) (20:10-25:19)
Sivyi Yar in Russian, crazy one-person project that does NOT sound one-person-y. He integrates some fun alternative/post-punk in his black metal.
Distant Haze Was Arising: Сивый Яр (Russia) (26:43-33:13)
Denver’s Primitive Man breaks down the best.
Loathe: Primitive Man (Denver) (33:38-38:58)
Cult of Luna-ish vocals, cause these guys are Swedish.
The End/Aftermath: Gloson (Sweden) (39:33-46:18)
Very talented death, these guys have 2 vocalists, I like the raspy one, he should sing more!
Pox of the Weary: Lago (Phoenix) (47:30-52:50)
Another talented atmospheric-laden black metal.
Entartetes Gesicht: Aesop (Switzerland) (53:19-END)
