|Blackest of the black tourney wave 2 rounds 1-2|
Now that discovery is over, time to accelerate things a little and see who will be crowned blacker than the blackest black times infinity.
Von Er Eitur
This little 17 minute EP is the most venomous thing to come out of Iceland probably ever. The band name means Human Virus and the music sounds like nihilism put to tape.
Progenitor of all Abberations
ScuroFantasma - Album obliterates; all the best things about black metal rolled into one. Crazy dissonant solos, tremolo riffage that drips with atmosphere, Satans hard and best of all it's self aware. Hell there's even a track called 'A Freaky European Black Metal Cliché' - but best of all it sounds original without leaving behind its obvious influences. Throbbing bass lines and a hazy-yet-balanced production attest to that. Up there with the best bm from this year and while it may not have the age to prove it, the riffs call back to the days of church-burning Norway.
O Sangue e a Terra
Hal1ax - lo-fi, cold, crusty atmospheric depressive black metal from Portugal.
De Doden Hebben Het Goed
Choccyphilly - Blisteringly quick and visceral. Though the production is fairly clean, it takes nothing away from this quick album but still one that's easy to get lost in. Might not bring anything new to the table, yet it doesn't matter when what they do offer is done well.
