Klara Lewis – Too

Sketches. Incomplete ideas of pictures yet to be formed. Idle lines on paper connected in moments of inspiration, never fully developed. Most of us are just sketches. Fragmented, splintered, incomplete representations of human beings, but yet we constantly hide this fact. We hide ourselves behind images that best represent our thoughts and shapes, and we […]

Stuzha – Butugichag

Perfect timing for this, what with all of the cold creeping in and killing everything.  Today the temperature dropped low enough to freeze puddles, and the pleasant sound of fracturing earth was welcome, but still, it's not cold enough.  We need cold that anything living dreads, cold you can feel in your bone marrow.  Stop […]

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 […]

Yen Pox – Between the Horizon and the Abyss

We've been on board with Malignant Records for a long time now.  What started as a partial zine project many years ago eventually went on to become one of the modern powerhouses behind death industrial, noise, ambient, and all of those moldering genres we enjoy so much around here.  So yeah, we've known about them […]

Isolator – Culture & Principal of Anti​-​Human Exaltation

Loneliness, crushing loneliness.  If you're not feeling that right now, stop right here, go no further.  For this is the kind of thing you can experience in only one context; in the middle of wretched solitude.  No feeling, numb, cold, and in complete darkness.  Without these elements you'll completely misunderstand everything about this album.  There […]

DEATHSTENCH/Trepaneringsritualen: Split LP

In the world of darkness, there are a few labels that reign supreme that we see around here frequently.  One of those, Malignant Records, has sent us recently several cool pieces, including our first vinyl promo for the new hardcopy address.  And here it is.  First off, nothing beats a picture disc with cool artwork, […]

Schloss Tegal: Oranur III “The Third and Final Report”

Cold Spring, the living god of dark music.  Funk dat, make it the living pantheon of dark music.  For all of the great material he releases, he's also been known for re-releases, particularly of legendary underground dark ambient and industrial that both groundbreaking and genre-creating.  We already reviewed Ax's Metal Forest a few weeks ago, and […]

RMEDL/K11: Chthonian Music

Just when you think Cold Spring couldn't possibly release anything darker than the dark he already has, he pulls something like this out.  Granted, Chthonian Music is actually a reissue of an extremely limited cut from 2010 (only 50 copies exist), but that doesn't stop it from covering your world in darkness, and this is also in spite […]

Fausten: S/T

See those worms on the cover?  They're symbolic.  They're going to dig into your body cavity and intertwine with your intestines, wrapping their way up your veins and nerves until they slowly replace your brain and leave only a trembling mass of fetid earth-dwellers in its place.  That was our attempt at providing a cool […]
