Alkerdeel – Lede

Alkerdeel – Lede

A devil wanders in Hallerbos, its thick, mildewed hair blending with the forest floor. Such devils as this have been ignored for so long, too long, remembered as mere relics of a forgotten time when nature was still a mystery. Like an infectious mosquito man bit into its hide, drawing what life was left there, […]

Video Review – Foscor – “Those Horrors Wither”

This is an inaugural attempt at a new idea, which may have its own special feature at some point, or become as regular as our music reviews, but at this late hour, on this day, this brain is short on genius.  So let's keep it clear what it is, a video review.  The critical difference […]

Interview with CHAOS ECHŒS (Esoteric and Arcane)

In our selection of only the finest, most bizarre, and most darkened of music, we sometimes find it pertinent to interview what we consider the best.  Those of the underground sometimes rejected by the vpper crvst for being so against the grain their skin is rubbed raw to the underlayer.  A fine film of blood […]

Stellar Descent – …fading…

What is a risk?  The easy answer is something, anything, where one takes a chance equaling failure or reward. The complex answer is either possibility is due to the application of the idea itself.  What do we mean?  Well, let's elaborate. In these times when music is so easy to create, not necessarily well, and […]

BLACK YO)))GA – Asanas Ritual, Vol. 1

So it has been a bit, eh?  Now that the seasons are getting colder, I'm growing more and more Minnesotan in my Seattle landscape in order to best combat the troubles ahead.  Yesterday I chose not to wear any normal clothing and wore traditional Minnesotan garb of fur pelts from animals and consumed the beating […]

Vukari – En to Pan

In spite of how difficult this is going to be for you to believe, we do, at times, make mistakes.  In research, no, never (or we hide it before you notice).  This is a different type of a mistake.  This is a "where did I put that?" mistake.  This is a "wait a minute what […]

Déluge – Æther

This was something long awaited, because we, as well as only a few others, realize that France is where it's happening for two genres: post-black metal and post-hardcore.  There are no equals to the power of France, and there will never be, at least not at the moment.  We've had our tastes of the greats […]

Australasia – notturno

There's a certain power in experience, in all of those things one encounters throughout life, inevitably leading on a path to becoming an amateur, then perhaps expert.  Between the amateur and the expert is a land of ruin, it's far better to think you know what you're talking about than to almost know.  You, of […]

Lychgate – An Antidote for the Glass Pill

Gawd we really needed something new, something unique, something spectacularly bizarre.  Open the curtains, lead us into a crypt musically, scribe before us with aural might a portrait of the macabre.  We seek to be transported through dark corridors dripping in mildew, to smell the dried marrow of ages of death under our feet, oh […]

VI – De Praestigiis Angelorum

Well we had fun this week posting a bunch of stupid crap on Facebook to see how social media works.  Our conclusion?  It's fueled by utter stupidity.  As the activity climbed, we realized the most boring of us are more interested in crap memes and stupid, catchy phrases, which honestly we kind of took and […]
