Mannveira – Von Er Eitur Demo Review + Full Stream

Holy smokes, Satan! Mannveira just got played five times on repeat while I swivel on my chair at Al Necro HQ multi-tasking with great difficulty. The reason being that the music on Mannveira’s Von Er Eitur is absolutely spellbinding. I’m having to follow the rung notes to the speakers that give them life in my home office, and I have to say that I really missed out on this band writing my 2014 End of Year List.

Malkuth – Tamahprabha Review + Exclusive Track Premiere

The last of the cluster of Prison Tatt releases up for review, Malkuth’s Tamahprabha, is raw black metal poison for the ears of the uninitiated. Savage and primitive, Tamahprabha starts things off at a blistering pace, transitioning riffs with the use of tempos that vary to keep things fresh.

Eternally Wretched: LEVIATHAN – Scar Sighted Review

Scar Sighted is a gem in this 2015 that has just started for two reasons mainly: one, you will not hear a metal album quite like this all year, not only for this year actually, but likely for years to come; and two, with Scar Sighted, Leviathan is FUCKING BACK, back to their most disgusting and geniously appalling craft, the one we had loved so much up until the all time masterpiece Massive Conspiracy Against All Life came to life back in 2008.

Serpents Lair – Demo MMXIV
Review-Full Stream-Footage

Some of you may remember when Serpents Lair was featured on CVLT Nation after the release of their Demo MMXIV. The demo, comprised of two songs, features a lengthy runtime without having convoluted arrangements meant to sound epic. The songs don’t sound like they range from six to eight minutes, but in fact sound just like raw black metal played with a much shorter runtime.

One thing setting Addaura apart from their peers in the American Black Metal scene is their use of keyboards. In the sonic spectrum, their delve into this is one of the band’s strong suits. They know what spaces need to be filled.

Mastery – VALIS Review & Stream

VALIS is not an album that takes its time, emerging ponderously from a cocoon of ambiance and atmosphere that carries the listener into the stinging guitar winds of black metal. The debut LP from San Fransisco one-man project Mastery has neither time nor space for frivolity.

Human Bodies – No Life Review + Full Stream

Black metal infused punk, or punk infused black metal, is nothing new; however, the style has never sounded as fresh as it does coming from Boston’s Human Bodies. No Life, their third output overall, released back in August, surprises me in that it didn’t make it on at least the honorable mentions sections of some year end lists (at least that I’ve seen).
