Nothing is something special, despite their namesake. When they could be the next sad thing that’s all the rage, they instead make an art of it all. Blending sunny side noise landscapes with dark side of the moon lyricism, this band has carved itself quite the niche. Through A389 Recordings,

The intro snippet on this two song EP features the sound of a blade being sharpened while a woman cries in the backdrop. Helluva way to start a record! Then again, Terror from Cleveland uses the tongue-in-cheek humor well, and this record gets off to a fast start by the

Today I read some pretty insane news that a bacterium resistant to the strongest antibiotics has been found in a woman from Pennsylvania, making this the first ever case on US soil after reports of such a “nightmare-bacterium” having been found in China. Since antibiotics are the only known way

There comes a time in every young man, woman, nonbinary, or other person’s life when they have something put in front of them that is so jagged, bare, raw, textured and destructive that it achieves all levels of perfection and surpasses it without batting an eyelash. Now take extreme experimental

How many bands who claim to be “experimental” actually…you know…experiment – as opposed to those who just use a couple dissonant chords and a few effects pedals? Unfortunately, not many. But, powerhouse bands like Billy Bao make up for all that is lacking in the realm of so-called experimental music. Billy Bao is infamous in

Just looking at the cover of Cemetery Glow, the debut release from Light of the Morning Star, you get a black metal vibe. Actually, you might even think it looks a bit like Mayhem‘s De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, with the choice of colors and the contrast. This mysterious band sure

Hallelujah, indeed. Since first discovering Gevurah sometime in 2013 after the release of their intoxicating debut EP Necheshirion, I’ve watched with interest what this two man act out of Canada would do next and was teased considerably with 2015’s two song demo A Dialogue of Broken Stars, a release that

Black metal is a strange art indeed. How can anyone else but the most hardcore of black metal maniacs appreciate an album recorded so intentionally lo-fi because it strikes the charm? From pioneering bands such as Darkthrone and Ulver, raw necro black metal will always be something of an irony.

Since 2007 San Francisco-based occult Dark Ambient/Doom cult Common Eider, King Eider have been creating some of the most majestic and blood-chilling abstract doom ever put to tape. Sprinkled across a string of nearly impossible to find and hand-crafted cassettes, 7″s and a few 12″s, over the years, this band’s music has levitated from an

Recitations features members of NWN! Productions alumnus Katechon, a departure for them stylistically, as Recitations features a whole lot of space-age leads and mid-tempo black metal mosh sections. There are also plenty of percussion and ambient segments on their debut release, The First of the Listeners. The theme here seems
