— Wicked black metal is integrated seamlessly with emotionally wrenching acoustic and melody.
Murmurations From Twilight Bodies
— A split between four bands; all filthy death. This one by Gutvoid is a cool death and psychedelic atmospheric blend.
Rope Burn Exit
— Minnesota tells a story of a massive starry sky and aggro men in black hoods raising a fist to it.
— The Finnish always have something surprising to offer. Here it is futuristic horror industrial noise and a proggy post-punk.
— One man’s mad brain offers experimental black metal with a lot of piano and no guitar.
VIOLET COLD (Azerbaijan)
— Thanks to my buddy Donovan for pointing out this album. They have always been a strange meld of black gaze, electronic and a lot of emo, which becomes touching. Great new album.
GRAVE MIASMA (UK)
— Groove and atmosphere in a murky mid-paced death, I’m all for it.
At Last (Fragrance cover)
— A new German dark wave band does their danceable version of a favorite band of mine, Fragrance.
