This is probably everything "Moonlover" failed to be; aggressive, powerful blackgaze with a depressive bm lean.
Dzo-nga Five Treasures of Snow
You know I'm alla bout dem blast beatz--especially when it comes to Darkspacey melodic black metal like this--but I'll be darned if the musicianship and production aren't good enough to keep me interested without much in the way of a rhythm section. Those bass licks are pretty swell, too. If you ever wanted a more melodic, more black metal-y Sutekh Hexen, then this is for you.

Ambient, casual post-rock. It goes where it goes and takes its time getting there. Background music. Think of a more casual Tortoise with less jazziness, in parts.
Taake Over Bjoergvin Graater Himmerik
Æsahættr Æsahættr
rawer-ish bm. Drums are programmed in that annoying kind of way that makes the blast beats sound weird, but otherwise they don't sound too bad.
Olafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm Trance Frendz
Trance Frendz is a rather quaint piano collab by two fairly well acclaimed modern classical
artists. It definitely can't compete with most works in either artist's back catalogs, but
it probably wasn't intended to. It's a rather simple album, probably just meant to be a fun
exercise in pianism between friends. In that way, it succeeds. It probably won't blow you
away if you've had at least a little bit of experience with piano-heavy [modern] classical
music, but don't let that stop you from checking out it or either artist's back catalogs.

Rating could go up upon further listens; it

  • TalonsOfFire The debut is excellent but this is a whole different beast, much more polished and melodic and better imo. It's kinda similar to Autumn Eternal from last year.
