Mania/Huldrekall - Split

Two sick fucking bands. Mania plays psychedelic black metal that rips shit up (there is some sick flute work here too!). Huldrekall is more straight-forward, but mixes it up enough to keep it interesting as fuck. Download this or fucking die.

2011 - Mania/Huldrekall - Split

Aanal Beehemoth - Forest Paranoid

This is the shit right here, punk infused black metal, catchy riffs, no production, ugly vocals…what more could you ask for??

2008 - Forest Paranoid

Auspicium - Here is no Heaven EP

So while recording is going on for the next Auspicium album, here is an interim EP. One new song, one rerecorded song, and a song from that next album.

2011 - Here Is No Heaven

Wholy Failure - Christmas Day Exhumation

Newest WF poop. I hope it ruins everyone's holiday season. Has a cover of the seminal (semenal?) twee-pop song Emma's House by The Field Mice.

2011 - Christmas Day Exhumation


Wode - Demo 2011

A strong black metal demo, with plenty of atmosphere, yet straightforward at the same time, perfect for banging your heads to. Watch out for these Brits, because if this demo is an indication of what is to come, I think they should be on your radar for a while.

2011 - Demo 2011


Rosaceae - Where the Aconitum Amass, the Cities Have Fallen

Another repeat offender. Again, another journey into a post-rock, post-hardcore, post black metal world with Rosaceae. Just like with Nuklearenpest, a marked improvement. Quite the improvement actually.

Nuklearenpest - Monuments

New Nuklearenpest demo. I enjoy this one more than Consigned to the Black Plague, which I didn't dislike but was not one of my favorites. Raw, atmospheric black metal.

2011 - Monuments

Dolorvotre - s/t

Black Twilight Circle black metal, I pretty much love every single release that comes from these guys and this one is no exception; raw, dirty and with a nice dose of psychedelic in it, black metal at its best!

2011 - Dolorvotre

Nekrasov - Extinction

“...Riding atop the recent wave of black metal/noise hybrids who combine the bleak frosty riffs and blackened ferocity of underground BM with blown-out and corrosive strains of industrial noise (see also WOLD, Emit, Grief No Absolution, Enbilulugugal, Vargr), the Australian one-man band Nekrasov has so far made a substantial mark in the realm of extremist necro-racket with a series of limited edition, brutally abrasive albums (Cognition Of Splendid Oblivion, The Form Of Thought From Beast, etc) that have mostly been self-released, save for some recent offerings on labels like Siege Of Power and Chrome Leaf. Early on, Nekrasov's sound was steeped in caustic noise, a blazing industrialized black metal assault that was doused in heavy levels of irradiated distortion and Merzbowian skree. But more recently, it's mutated into less metallic regions, alternating the hyperblast black metal with forays into crushing, demonic wall-noise and blasted ambience. Now, Nekrasov is back with a new full length (the first for Crucial Blast), and it's the most advanced slab of their blacknoize terror that we've heard so far. An octagonal prism of isolationist drone, flesh-rending mechanical black metal, abstract otherworldly beauty, claustrophobic industrial dread, and the most violent, suffocating strains of harsh noise, Extinction is pure cyclonic contempt for humanity.... ” via Crucial Blast
yeah what they said, this is a powerful release!

2010 - Extinction

Lamentations of the Ashen - EKIMMV

Newest full-length from the best Tragic black metal act out there. Don't go into this expecting anything, there are so many influences that slapping a genre tag doesn't work on this. This will be out at the end of the week on Bandcamp and iTunes, so please buy it if you like it!

2011 - EKIMMV

Please buy it from the Lamentations bandcamp page or iTunes store

Sunday, November 20, 2011

De Silence et d'Ombre - 3: The Fall

Dark black metal with a dissonant dark ambient feel, pitch black moods coated in distortion and graced with some great vocals!

2010 - 3: The Fall

Sunday, November 13, 2011

Wolfhetan - Entrückung

Here’s a, more or less, hidden gem from Germany, amazing black metal in the vein of Nagelfar. A great album full of memorable songs, a must listen!

2006 - Entrückung

Sunday, November 6, 2011

Xerion - Nocturnal Misantropia

Excellent black metal from Spain, really good compositions that have a melancholic yet epic feel, very well made and well worth checking out!!

2007 - Nocturnal Misantropia

The Haunting Presence

Filthy raw black metal in the vein of Beherit, Teitanblood and all the other good stuff, only four songs but man are they good, fucking mandatory stuff right here!

2011 - The Haunting Presence

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Arizmenda - Without Circumference Nor Center

New album, really well made, not as good as the debut but still a mandatory listen!

2011 - Without Circumference Nor Center

Horrid Cross

Powerful raw black metal, really in your face stuff but at the same time incredibly listenable, highly recommended!!

Horrid Cross - Demo I, II and III

Auspicium - Infinite Lights of Greater Stars

Here it is, the long awaited and delayed third Auspicium long-player. Nick from Disguster contirbuted leads and vocals on "The Imperialist" that are great. The packaging and layout by Ninth Meridian Records are great, so please make sure you buy a copy if you enjoy it.

2011 - Infinite Lights of Greater Stars

Hellige - God

Hellige is from Argentina. They play a blend of doom and black metal. It is reminiscent of The Axis of Perdition and TWTTG-era Blut Aus Nord.

2011 - God

Monday, October 17, 2011


Some very, very impressive folk/tribal/black metal album. Phenomenal musicianship and songwriting. It's ritualistic and pagan and folky all at the same time. Absolutely beautiful. Well done.

2011 - Effigies and Epitaphs

This release was provided to us by the label.

Nachzehrer - Pestilence Hungers in the Shadows

A goddamned headbanger! Nachzehrer play black metal mixed with thrash. Think D666 but more straightforward. Leather Jackets, bullet belts, cheap whiskey by the handle. If any of those sound good to you, check this group of Bostonians out!

Boglord - Total Fucking Eclipse of the Sun

Here is a cautionary tale for all bands submitting here. Please don't say you are a "blackened punk" act when in reality you are a raw black metal band with a decent amount of punk influence. I don't care what you are, I'll post your tunes no matter what. Just don't misrepresent yourselves.

Boglord are a raw black metal band with some punk influences. This demo is kinda sloppy when the speed picks up, so your best bets are the tracks where the speed stays at a stompy level. Not the greatest thing to pass my desk, but far from the worst. Check it out
(ps - any band who has a member who's pseudonym is a drug from the Elder Scrolls video games can't be that bad)

Northward - In Sturmes Wind

Wow. An honest-to-goodness fucking submission that wasn't Post-this, /that, just a good old fashioned cold black metal release with WAY too much reverb and some decent melodies. It's atmospheric, but not slow. It sounds like a demo because it is a demo. The wheel definitely wasn't reinvented here, but that's ok.

2011 - In Sturmes Wind

Folkstorm - Valavond

Folkstorm is a black metal/folk band that really sounds a lot like what would happen if Agalloch and Falls of Rauros (buy their new fucking album, The Light That Dwells In Rotted Wood, then fucking thank me) combined to create something new. Their first album was good, but this is damn good. This is top notch material and is a must for any fans of folkish black metal.

2011 - Valavond

Happy Autumnal Equinox/Field of Spears - Pale Eulogies (EP)

As the Autumnal Equinox is here, I thought I'd give the new Field of Spears EP I'd been working on out in celebration. As Serpent & Sodom celebrated summer and sweltering sin, Pale Eulogies is inspired by the impending chill of Autumn and the inescapable finality of death.

2011 - Pale Eulogies

1. The Great Equalizer
2. Veil
3. Before the Pale
Bonus Tracks:
4. Runes and Men (Death In June cover)
5. Vici Ruinam (unreleased song from the Serpent and Sodom sessions)

Fixed the fucking link.

Avulse - Too Kvlt to Fuck EP

In advance of our splits with Disguster and Malveillance (as well as the physical release of this EP). Here is the new Avulse EP "Too Kvlt to Fuck". Its kind of a midway point between the introspection of I Am The Liquor and the fuck it attitude of Granted but Grace from this World. Lots of Poison Idea was listened to when this was written.

2011 - Too Kvlt to Fuck


We should have some of these made within the next month or so.

Sheer Ignorance - Conditioning

More Crust Punx-cum-black metal goodness. These guys lean more towards the crust side of things, but keep a good helping of the black metal going.

2011 - Conditioning

Disguster - Live at Meat Gum

This is a recording of what (if I'm correct) is the first and thus far only Disguster live performance. It definitely doesn't have the greatest sound, but it still sucks you in and traps you in its rawness. A big thanks to Nick for sending this over (not completely related, but later in the year look out for the Disguster/Avulse split tape.)

2011 - Live at Meat Gum


Aksumite - The Gleam of Wetted Lips

Ferocious raw black metal mixed with hardcore punk. This is raw like dry-fucked asshole. If you like it noisy, dirty, and covered in filth, you will fucking love this.

2011 - The Gleam of Wetted Lips

While we are on the subject:

I have (re)started a new (old) blog for all things non-bm that me and my friends create, or demos that I receive that aren't quite what we strive for here: http://lastsunslight.blogspot.com/

This first post is another of the myriad projects I create, and I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys Death/Doom or just crushing music in general.

Perpetual Strife

Shameless promotion here. I've started another blog entitled Perpetual Strife. It's review oriented but will have tons of specials (interviews, features, etc) on all kinds of music from grindcore to black metal to ambient to punk.

Check it out!

Abu Lahab - As Chastened Angels Descend Into The Thoracic Tombs

"Abu Lahab is a project I started back in 2000 under a different name but forced to change the name later fearing that my identity would be discovered after my first demo gained some local fame because of the strong anti Islam elements it contained. Lately, the music I make/ try to make is mostly an outlet for me to express my personal frustrations (religious, sexual, social...), my take on the occult and an escapist activity to better cope with my illness."

Yeah...this is one weird fucking record. It is lo-fi black metal mixed with industrial and noise, with the occasional sample or Islamic prayer thrown in, and some fucking video game music. I could see this as auditory schizophrenia. If you enjoy generally fucked up unmusic, noise, or darkwave, give it a shot.

Book of Sand - The Bees and the Butterflies

So, Book of Sand takes old American and European folk songs and interprets them as black metal. Its a pretty cool set up. Lots of violin and atmosphere. The vocals are pretty low in the mix, but I had to find something to bitch about.

Yhdarl - Ave Maria

"YHDARL was formed in 2006 by D, doing everything, experimenting from suicidal black metal, drone, noise, funeral doom, ... In 2010, L (Larvalis) joined the project, doing insane female screams and inspiration of audial rape. With many free releases and some physical stuff available, YHDARL stood with a different, original banner of depressive music."

A nice and disturbing change of pace. The centerpiece here is the first disc, with two versions of "Ave Maria", the fifty-minute original and a beautiful and horror-filled orchestral version. The second disc contains a remix of the song, as well as two other originals and an Urfaust cover. Definitely grab this, dim your lights, and spend two and a half hours in another, more terrifying and grand place.

Disguster - Ferocious Hell Blizzard

New Disguster promo. This was supposed to be released as a 10" EP, but seeing as that fell through, it is being released to all for free. As always, it rips and is worth the time and download.

Urfaust- Der freiwillige Bettler

One of the few bands I actually try and keep up with. Drei Rituale Jenseits Des Kosmos... and Einsiedler are definitely my favorite works by this duo and while this release is a step more into solid black metal territory it's still good and just different enough to keep me surprised and interested. This band shows no sign of slowing down. Catch them this summer in Texas at Rites of Darkness (wish i was going)

2010- Der freiwillige Bettler

Auspicium - Hope Is All You Have (demos)

It's not to common that a blog posts something of mine that isn't already up here. It's completely wacky that something I didn't even release officially got out into the interwebs. So, I have been tracking some demo tracks up on the Auspicium bandcamp website just to get some feedback and get the word out there for new material coming soon. This was just a precursor to the actual recordings of HIAYH, which is actually gonna have a real live drummer, as opposed to my shitty programming. So since I cant put the proverbial cat back in the bag, here is the OFFICIAL Hope is All You Have DEMO with 4 songs.

2011 - Hope is All You Have (demo)

Wholy Failure pt 2

Two more WF releases. Tree of Human Debris is noise and pyschotic black metal overtones. Good for doing lots of drugs to. The Black House is like Songs of Surrender, but with a more downtrodden attitude. It features a cover of Current 93's Soft Black Stars and Swans' Alcohol the Seed.

2011 - Tree of Human Debris

2011 - The Black House
