3 siqq black metal albums
1Remete (AUS)
Into Endless Night

Remete is one of two new projects (the other being Unfelled) by Woods of Desolation mastermind D. Into Endless Night is essentially a continuation and further exploration of the frost-y aesthetic Remete conjured on their previous release, The Winter Silence. This one proves to be a more meditative experience, with melodies and motifs repeating until they are firmly ingrained in your head. I often find myself bored with overtly winter-y black metal these days -there are honestly few who can do it better than the second-wave classicks, and that's just a fact- but Remete's excursions into the mind-numbingly cold always prove to be a journeys worth taking.

L'Acephale predated the Cascadian black metal boom by a few years, but was undoubtedly one of that movement's greatest inspirations. Now, about a ten years after Cascadia's nature-inspired black metal influence had started to decay, these innovators have returned with their most ambitious album yet. Though their "Cascadian" essence remains, L'Acephale, like always, has proven to be so much more; elements of dark folk run rampant throughout the band's self-titled effort, restraining a portion of the blackened fury present. This in of itself isn't **too** peculiar, but when supplemented by an eerie almost-martial atmosphere, L'Acephale feels more imposing than most other albums of its ilk. Cascadia may be dead, but its ghost remains.

There's black metal that attempts to achieve a chill through their music, and black metal that attempts to achieve a chill through their production; Maneskygge is the latter, and the tempest it conjures throughout its sole untitled full-length is cold enough to leave you teeth chattering. There's an odd beauty to the harshness, and the though the production could not be any rawer, it's a surprisingly listenable experience. With summer quick approaching, this blizzardous album is the perfect tool to combat the oncoming
