It’s 2016, and atmospheric black metal bands are a dime a dozen. Any willing individual has the means to recycle a Cascadian riff, edit an eerie nature photo for a cover, and release their compositions to the world. This is not to say that the scene is bogged down –

My initial exposure to San Francisco’s old school death metal overlords NECROT was, fittingly, the most old school introduction possible.

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada hasn’t quite been a significant marker on my map of places to recognize for strong musical releases, but after living through the barbarous, carnal mass that is Language of the Night by Shibboleth, it may as well be one of the areas I’m most focused on

Hailing from the United Kingdom’s Yamabushi Collective come some strapping young lads known for their work in Nembutal and sonic torturers Cease To Exist under their new band name, Gevurah. They reach a new form after combining audial dismal fire, thrash and black metal. As previously stated in articles I’ve

I have traversed the web far and wide in my search for information about the mysterious Estonian leather and iron accessory line Anu Tera, but my search uncovered few words. However, the lack of words was made up for by the vast landscape of achingly beautifully imagery. As I scrolled
