Embers - Shadows

Pretty decent black metal with flourishes of death metal. The songs have decent use of keyboards, without becoming cheesy or symphonic or just fucking lame. What is lame is the cover that is included/have on their bandcamp site. It has tour dates on it, so I am using another of their logos with it.

Vestiges - The Descent of Man

Vestiges formed in January of 2010 as a two-piece band. Influenced by hardcore, black metal, crust, screamo, and post-rock, the band set out to incorporate elements of each genre to articulate their message both musically and lyrically. A third member was added to the band shortly before entering the studio to record The Descent Of Man. The band and a filmmaker are currently in the process of producing a film to visually capture the theme of The Descent Of Man. The Descent Of Man follows the creation, the evolution, and the eventual annihilation of mankind. Today, we find ourselves hoping to reverse the damage that we have done and struggling to sustain what little earth we have yet to rape repeatedly. We validate this existence with stories that justify our behavior and our role in the natural world. The promise of salvation in a land we have yet to see has clouded our judgment in a land that is right before our eyes. Industrialization, militarization, overpopulation, theism, specieism, and nihilism are regarded as evolution and progress. Our greed and ignorance have been celebrated and our past has been forgotten. We were meant to be a part of nature. We were not meant to conquer nature. We were given life and we have done everything in our power to bring death upon everything in our path, including ourselves. There will be horrifying consequences for what we have done.

This is an interesting release. If you are looking for the blackened crust chaos of Martyrdod or Dishammer, this isnt what you are looking for. However if you are looking more towards a black metal that hybridizes with the epic crust that bands like Fall of Efrafa play, this is a pretty damn spot on choice.

Ungoliant - Demo

Our good friend Nick from Disguster sent me this earlier. He is playing the drums like a fucking brute here. Raw, punked out black metal that catches the ethos of the first wave without sounding hokey.

Wholy Failure - Songs of Surrender

Disclaiming it now: this isn't black metal. However, I can't record a god damn thing without a bit of black metal showing up in the sound. This is, as some of you know, an EP by Wholy Failure, another act I am involved with. The other WF releases are harsh ambient/noise, but this one is a Shoegaze/Post Punk hybrid, and as always, spicy little hints of BM always flavoring the mix. I hope some of you freaks enjoy it.

Yellow Eyes - Silence Threads The Evening's Cloth

Shit. This is a great fucking record. Melodic, but not cheesy. Emotive, without being "depressive". Yellow Eyes take modern black metal, add a bit of post rock and chaotic hardcore influence, and create a great record. This is their first, not even fully available yet. So download it and enjoy.

Monument - I

Great fucking raw atmospheric black metal out of Chicago. It sounds like the Lurker of Chalice lp coated in more reverb and with occasional choral vocals.

2010 - I
Buy (they might have a couple left)

Sangre Y Tierra - Estrujándonos en el Mar

Another terrific EP by one our favorite newer bands. This is gonna be his last release before his final LP, "Beyond Her There are Glorious Swells". Terrific mid to slower paced black metal with powerful vocals and lyrics that celebrate their own culture, instead of celebrating the nordic influence. Damn great release and while I can't wait for BHTAGS, I want him to keep producing music.

Abyssgale- The Coming Plague

Punky d-beat driven black metal with excellent production and composure from Greece. Too bad this is their only release. Bassist and drummer play in Dodsferd, as well as a handful of other Greek bands. Seriously though, one of the best black metal releases that encompasses anything punk.
