DEMON KING (TN)
And He Shut His Eyes in Anguish
— Members of Inferi in a tight, intense fury of speed and death and breathtaking complexity of magical guitar fingers.
— You try saying this band name out loud. Their black metal gently cradles, and compositions enrapture with snarling vocals.
ASTRIFEROUS (Costa Rica)
Blinding the Seven Eyes of God
— Costa Rica coming up with sinister atmospheric death metal and beautifully unique guitars.
Kutsu Minua Saatanaksi
— Finnish alien energy and raw demonic black metal with a romping punk attitude.
— Porous, dissolving modern death with wailing guitars and standout vocals that are a textural throaty punch.
Een Oude Wijsheid Werd hier Geveld
— One-person black metal that wrote in beautiful isolation surrounded by an ancient forest.
Dromen van de zon
— Aching loveliness, gaze and tragic melodies within an acerbic and raw black metal.
— Loved the clean vocals and strummed meandering. Even though sweet moments, still Enslaved.
Light of the Eternal Dawn
— Donovan-recommended. Drops becomes torrential becomes typhoon. Shrieks bolt across the sky. A one-person romance of delicate and razor-edged black metal.
