Negură Bunget- Vîrstele Pămîntului

After some changes within the band and 4 years rest, Negură Bunget return. Good album, but a bit too much folk stuff if you ask me. Feels like a watered down Om (which i think is one of the top 5 greatest black metal albums of the 2000's).

Trails of Anguish-Relentless Abhorrence Of Misery's Grievance

The people have spoken and here's Trails of Anguish's first EP. The first track is a bonus that they added on for the second addition abroad (ironically enough, it's probably the worst track on the ep).

Canadian tech-melo whatever black metal that's amazing. I'll upload similar projects by the members in a bit.

Trails Of Anguish - Scarred Memento

Long broken up, Trails of Anguish were an interesting band who released two great eps. They're very similar (in terms of style, band members, etc) to Nefastus Dies and have friends in the French-Candian metalcore sceen (Despised Icon, on Dissonance, etc). I dig the shit out of this band. Hard to label, but I'd say melodic/technical black metal. Just give it a shot before you make any presumptions because I know it would sound like something I'd hate. But the vocals are amazing and the riffs are absurdly catchy and pleasing; not to mention this drummer is insane.

Here's the second ep, I'll upload the first if you guys dig it.

Lords of Lightspeed (pre WITTR)

Here's a Lords of Lightspeed 7" uploaded by Zero over at It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Crustmas. It's a melodic hardcore band with both of the Weaver brothers that make up Wolves in the Throne Room. It's not black metal at all, but I'm sure many of you would be interested in it. It's not bad at all. I had been looking for this for awhile, nice to know Zero's got my back. Now if I could just find some Gifthorse (Wrest's prog rock band).

Willing Feet - Demo

This is raw. Not "recorded in an analog studio" raw. This is recorded in a robotic dumpster, that is getting anally raped by another dumpster without lube, into a boombox on the external mic raw. In fact, I have no fucking clue how it sounds due to how raw it is. I do know that it's pretty sweet and if you like the BTC bands, you'll probably like this.

Endless Disease - Our Dawn is the End

Its been a while and I have finally got started on the huge backlog of submissions we have. Thought I'd start with something that is really good. ED is from Texas. They play nice and crusty black metal. Not as d-beat reliant as some crusty black can be, you can't help but think of Craft and their brand of misanthropy with this demo.

Johann Wolfgang Pozoj

Excellent new band from Croatia; J.W. Pozoj plays some really great progressive tinged black metal; The first album is not bad, showing the potential of the band but things really pick up on the second album which features some incredibly strong material, especially on the cleaner parts where the band really shines; also, the packaging of the second album compliments the music perfectly, a really awesome looking release to own. There is loads of potential here, definitely a band to keep an eye out for. Highly recommended!!

1349-1349 (ep)

So I don't know 'bout y'all, but I think old 1349 was pretty bitchin.' Liberation and this, their 2001 EP and also their first non-demo release, were pure unadulterated early 90's Mayhem/Gorgoroth worship. That said, they didn't try and hide what they were, and I like that. 1349 and Liberation were honest to devil black metal worship. Similar to other worship bands (old Municipal Waste to Wehrmacht, Sleep to Black Sabbath, or Warhammer to Hellhammer) the unoriginality was excused and the fun/competency or whatever else was what was admired.

There's a key component to this release, the cover is of Celtic Frost (the Usurper) not Pink Floyd, think on that (speaking of which that's Ravn drumming on the cover, not Frost).Frost used to be able to drum, and this shows it, I'm convinced the reason why 1349 and Satyricon suck is because he has bad tendinitis and can't drum fast well.

So if you want something ahead of the curve hit up Negura Bunget, Altar of Plagues, or Liturgy, but if you want second wave black metal done right listen to this (it's odd to think this is almost 10 years old).

Pensées Nocturnes- Grotesque

Pensées Nocturnes is a 1 man black metal band from France mixing in theatrics and medieval/ neo-classical sounds. The guitar playing is excellent, even some great solos (and if the drums are real there's amazing playing there too). Typically, this isn't my cup of tea. Some of theatrical parts really annoy me, but it's in the same sense of Arcturus, this is just a lot odder. That being said, I enjoy it and probably will keep enjoying it.

I don't see how Khaos[] could call this band typical, anything but, i assure you that some of the melodramatic orchestral parts are worth sitting through for the whole product.

I don't know what's with the French, maybe it's their drinking water, but last year alone we saw two blues tribute/tinged albums from France (Diamatregon's Crossroads and Glorior Belli's Meet Us at the Southern Sign- and for the record I thought Diamatregon's lp was far better). You also have bands like Mystic Forest and even Peste Noire who fool around with blues/medieval sounds.

Put your notions aside and give this a listen if you're in the mood for something diverse, bizarre, and theatrical- vaudeville to say the least.


Really not sure where to buy this, give me a heads up if you find where.

Sleeping Peonies - Rose curl, Sea swirl

""Rose curl, Sea swirl" is both the debut of Norfolk English band Sleeping Peonies and the first label release for Khrysanthoney. This pro duplicated/printed CDR is a 7 track demo featuring Sleeping Peonies' unique style of bass heavy black metal and gently flowing dreampop rhythms. Dark, tranquil and utterly dreamy, "Rose curl, Sea Swirl" is a sugary treat for lovers of groups as diverse as Alcest, Velvet Cacoon and Cocteau Twins."

One of the finest releases this year, perfectly soothing black metal,ideal listening for these warm summer days.
I suggest picking a copy since it's really inexpensive especially considering the quality.

Special thanks to rottenzombie for providing the flac rip.

Terzij de Horde - A Rage of Rapture Against the Dying of the Light

Really awesome black metal from Holland, strong compositions that remind me of Altar of Plagues only more straightforward, a great debut, I’ll be definitely looking forward to more material by these guys, highly recommended!

2010 - A Rage of Rapture Against the Dying of the Light

Eald - Through a world impatient for my death

Eald was brought to existence on the year 2001 by the hand of Heolstor, with the only purpose of delivering a message of discontent and perpetual frustration towards human kind. Thus, a first demo tape entitled “Fire shalt purify our land” was released by the german label Splendour Prod. , presenting a rather primitive and direct approach to Black Metal. The demo was surprisingly well received in the underground scene and several interviews were answered.

After putting the band in ice for a while, in winter 2009 Heolstor decided to continue his work with the band, but this time with a slightly different approach, perhaps a more artistic one. The songs present the same weariness towards mankind as before, but have gained in variation and complexity. Therefore, he requested the help of Ravager for the recording of a new demo, entitled “Through a world impatient for my death”, composed by four new tracks showing the evolution in the band’s sound.

The band is currently looking for a label to release their upcoming material, and any serious zine can ask for a promo copy or send their interviews.

This is for now definitely one of the best demo’s I’ve received, fast black metal with really killer song-writing, well worth a listen!

Innumerable Forms - Dark Worship

So, I'm cheating here (who the fuck cares), but I think this is something finally worth posting. Hopefully you guys know the amazing power violence act Mind Eraser, and if not maybe you know the unholy death act Funebrarum. If these names are over your head, don't worry you're just missing out on a lot. Innumerable Forms is Justin Detore, who has played in the aforementioned bands. Dark Worship is just that old school death metal that's super heavy and dark. Think Fallen Angel of Doom, Incantation's first three, Grave, etc. It's got a kinda black metal vibe, but it's just dark and heavy as hell. I highly recommend this, as it should appeal to fans of black metal and death metal alike.
