    Twilight ‎– Monument To Time End
    Label: Prophecy Productions ‎– WOLF 080
    Format: 2 × Vinyl, LP, Album, Reissue
    Country: Germany
    Released: 30 Nov 2018
    Style: Black Metal

    Often described as a «black metal supergroup», TWILIGHT has featured in its ranks, at one point or another, members of Xasthur, Draugar, Krieg, Leviathan, Lurker of Chalice, Minsk, Nachtmystium, Old Man Gloom, & Sonic Youth. Through the band’s diverse cast of musicians, they broke out of the traditional black metal blueprint, opening the style up to broader interpretation with a deft artistic vision.

    Sophomore, «Monument to Time End», features vastly epic tracks through a genre-crossing approach and cast. Flattered by a transparent, warm yet powerful production, the record still follows an overall black metal aesthetic, although flirts with elements of postrock, doom, industrial and all sorts of aural psychedelia. Enhanced by supreme, utterly creative performances on all instruments, and elaborate layering, this record could be seen as visionary. One might say they perform post black metal by its most literal meaning, before it became a genre.

    Prophecy Productions announces the reissue of TWILIGHT’S sophomore follow-up, «Monument To Time End» on LP.

    De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas is the first full-length studio album by the Norwegian black metal band Mayhem. Songwriting began in 1987,[1] but due to the suicide of vocalist Per “Dead” Ohlin and the murder of guitarist Øystein “Euronymous” Aarseth, the album’s release was delayed until May 1994. De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas is widely considered one of the most influential black metal albums of all time. It is the band’s only studio album to feature Aarseth and Varg “Count Grishnackh” Vikernes…

    VOICES FROM CORNERS UNKNOWN, EP. 8 (HIEMIS, FROM HARBOUR, MICROCOSMYS, LA TORTURE DES TÉNÈBRES)

    In episode eight we discuss the engulfing and monolithic drones on Nachtstücke from dark ambient artist HIEMIS, the melodic tides of From Harbour’s crushing hardcore debut Fatigue, and the atmospheric yet utterly chaotic split between microcosmys and La Torture Des Ténèbres titled THE GODS THEMSELVES.

    We dedicate this episode to Caleb Scofield, vocalist and bassist of Cave In, Zozobra, and Old Gloom, who tragically passed away a couple of weeks ago. May he rest in forever lasting peace.

  • Moloch – Verwüstung

    Label: Metallic Media
    Format: CD, Album
    Country: US
    Released: 19 Mar 2014
    Style: Black Metal

    “The album includes two types of music, reflecting what I gather are Fjordsson’s two divergent musical passions. The first and last tracks are wordless dark ambient pieces. They are markedly different from the six songs that come between them, but they don’t feel tacked on. They feel more like steps in a ritual, ithe first n preparation for what is to come – the emotionally harrowing storm of black metal. The cumulative effect of these songs is both electrifying and exhausting. It’s almost a relief when the final track arrives… I’m kind of dumbfounded that something this good is just one more surge in what seems to be a ceaseless flood of creativity from this band.” (No Clean Singing).
