28. April 2018 Adryuu 0

Craveth thou thy fix of black metal but art thou somewhat sick of silly and unintelligent “satanist” lyrics and/or that crappy AAA batteries powered amp cheap far-more-than-underground production, or maybe even that ultrafancy-ass overtriggered so-modern […]

Age of Silence “Acceleration” (2004)

28. April 2018 aVoid 0

Back in 2005 life was absent within avantgarde metal. DHG and KorovaKill missing in action, Arcturus and Solefald were turning repetitious and dull, and Carl-Michael was in a coma. Along to save the day came […]

Agalloch “Pale Folklore” (1999)

28. April 2018 David 0

When the gentle strike upon a guitar chord sounds more like a gentle brise of air, that caresses the branches of naked trees, and images of man-forsaken woods and lakes are projected in your mind, […]
