In this episode of Screams from the Gutter, we bring you some bitterness, some filth, some morbid introspection, some loss and a ton of gloom.  If these bands ended up in this series, it means three things mainly: 1) I’m clusterfucked with work and can’t for the life of me find

These are busy people. This year alone, No One, Sam and Brian opened for black metal legends Watain at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar, collaborated with Mayhem’s Manheim and Hellhammer, put out a full-length album (Fury Nocturnus) and a compilation (Pennhurst/Xesse) under the Total Occultic Mechanical Blasphemy (T.O.M.B.) moniker, plus another

One of underrated label Daemon Worship Productions’ more accomplished bands is Svartidaudi. I’ve been following this band since the release of their impressive album, Flesh Cathedral, and this two-song EP entitled The Synthesis of Whore and Beast finds this orthodox black metal band continuing that trend of quality output.
