Diamatregon - Crossroad

Record number three from this French black metal horde. A concept record of sorts, influenced heavily by THE BLUES, hence, Crossroad. Buzzing, blasting, blurred black metal fury, but with a strange melodic undercurrent, close listening does in fact reveal some blues, but those blues are buried beneath a roiling black sea of furious guitars, wild drum blasts and howled vokills, gloriously grim, noise drenched and black. Whow ould have thought that members of distorto psych rockers the Gunslingers and avant alchemical post rockers Aluk Todolo were capable of such black brutality...

this week all releases will have their label description or other reviews, it's all good shit, I'm just too lazy to write this stuff in this fucking warm weather.

I forgive you for it. ;)

Hey, I remember you posted Vacuum by Penseés Nocturnes for me, a few months ago. You mentioned you didn't think it was anything special.
If you like this blues-influenced black metal maybe you need to check out that album again. Not only because in MY opinion it's really good, but the track "Coups de Bleus" starts out as an authentic blues track that slowly morphs into bleak depressive black metal. You might really like it if you enjoy this so much.

coming from Aluk Todolo people, i assume this could sound better than the blues album by Glorior Belli ; must check

I don't really see the blues in this album...

Definitely Glorior Belli has a blues influence in some songs, and Judas Iscariot also had some bluesy sounding songs.
