With just two songs, each yawning well past the ten-minute mark, Spanish experimental black metal outfit Atrabillis‘ newest outing Uno is a profound exploration of the murky depths other lunatics such as Utarm and Gnaw Their Tongues plumbed on their twisted, cavernous musical voyages. But while other projects styling themselves

To rifle through the newly published music for a slab of psychedelic rock today is to ‘most likely’ run across some either terrible indie rock bands or some generic, radio-friendly stoner rock. Why ‘most likely’? Because if you happen to know Mike Vest, the case is gonna be different. Way

A T.O.M.B. (Total Occultic Mechanical Blasphemy) set is more of a ritual act than a musical performance, so it’s more than fitting that these black noise magicians were chosen to open for Watain recently at the latter’s only North American performance of the summer, at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar on

“The Taste for Nothingness Dull soul, to whom the battle once was sweet, Hope, who had spurred your ardour and your fame Will no more ride you! Lie down without shame Old horse, who makes his way on stumbling feet. Give up, my heart, and sleep your stolid sleep. For

In recent years, there hasn’t quite been any black metal band as consistently brilliant as France’s Blut Aus Nord, save maybe for their fellow countrymen and sonic brethren in Deathspell Omega. Their ‘90s output was solid, but 2004’s The Work Which Transforms God is an absolutely flawless piece of avant-garde

Lincoln, Nebraska isn’t the first place one would go looking for avant-garde prog metal, but that’s part what makes this noise-influenced two-piece such a unique outfit. Though Gnawstic still resides in the depths of the metal underground, the duo of Sam Meints and Marshal Fisher have been recording and playing their abrasive

I think attempting to debate what Mueller has written on the newly-released Death Blues record will get me straight back to where I was with Chrome’s “Feel It Like A Scientist”, so I’d prefer not to go in that direction for the sake of exploring another, say, new dimension instead. To get
