Vindensång - Terminus: Rebirth in Eight Parts…

This is such a fantastic album. One of the most chilling pieces I have ever heard. Combining ambient, neofolk, darkwave, drone, post-rock, noise and even black metal at times, Vindensång will send chills down your spine and have you sitting at the edge of your seat. The atmosphere that is created is like none that I've ever heard. Fans of any of the aforementioned genres will be pleased. I highly recommend this.

Track list:

1. Prologue: The Advent from Autumn/From Infinity
2. A Place Where Sand Meets Fog
3. Return My Flesh and Bones to the Earth
4. Ashes and Memories
5. Dusk: Into the Glow of Nightfall
6. Fading Light
7. The Origin: The Point of No Return
8. Epilogue: A Winter's End/To Infinity

Highlights - all of the tracks are absolutely fantastic, but "Fading Light" truly gave me goosebumps.

Enmerkar - Starlit Passage

This is really fucking fantastic. It is brand new atmospheric black metal from the US. I would call it a combination of the sounds of Lurker of Chalice, ColdWorld, Burzum, Mono, Smorzando, Amesoeurs, October Falls, and Wolves in the Throne Room. It is truly innovative and enticing black metal - throwing the genres of post-rock, shoegaze, folk, and ambient into the mix.
Unfortunately, this is just an EP but I am expecting great things this from this band.

Track list:

1. Where the Mountains Will Hide Your Ghost (3:38)
2. Pale Lord Pilgrimage of the Winter Born (8:25)
3. Warriors of the Mist (2:14)
4. Scaling the Throne of Arhemaniaus (4:21)
5. This Ancient Land of Sorrow and Beauty (7:47)

Highly recommended!!

2. Lied 2 (5:40)

4. Lied 4 (4:48)
5. Lied 5 (5:41)

Genre: Ambient Black Metal
Country: Switzerland
Release Date: May 8th, 2008

Smorzando is a Swiss ambient black metal project. If you are a fan of Lurker of Chalice and the likes, then this is a MUST-HAVE. The atmosphere is amazing, and it is hard to put into words, quite frankly. I highly, highly recommend this album. It is some of the most innovative and obscure black metal I have heard in a long time.

I don't even know how to describe this album. Think if Morbid Angel met Ahab and then met Insect Warfare. Thats what this band reminds me of.

Happy Birthday!

Since today is my birthday and its almost been a year since I first started this crazy blog I thought I would just update it a bit.

I have yet to find a proper way to describe this album. It's part lo-fi indie and part country, but that doesn't really matter. All you need to know is that this album is dark and depressing, but at the same time hauntingly beautiful and full of emotion. This is one of those classic albums that no one seems to know.
