Atmospheric Black Metal Tag

Happy accidents are the best when it comes to finding a new band that takes your breath away and changes your original plans for the day. Initially, I had in mind to share a “cover of the day” post on Google+ but after surfing the net, I accidentally spotted one hell of an artwork coming a long with a bandcamp reference to some mysterious black metal album. Driven by curiosity, I decided to play the first song of Dutch act Witte Wieven’s “Silhouettes of an Imprisoned Mind” and I wasRead More

Premiere: Fuath – I

Andy Marshall who is best known for his atmospheric folk/black metal band Saor, has expanded his list of musical projects by adding one more that will surely get you in a very good mood! This gentleman has proven once more his enormous talent by conceiving what I could define as “winter’s magic in stereo” or  simply put Fuath. Here is a short background info of the project: I am a massive fan of hypnotic atmospheric black metal, especially early 90’s stuff like Burzum’sHvis lyset tar oss, early Darkthrone, and also modern bands such as PaysageRead More

Premiere: Morar – Wahlheim

Almost one year ago, I had the pleasure to listen to and analyze the amazing debut EP of Morar titled “Chants of Ossian” and today I am excited to share that there’s more coming. The band that is still shrouded in mystery (no lineup and no country of origin announced) unveiled the date of arrival of their debut full-length that bears the name “Wahlheim.” Deeply rooted in atmospheric black metal, Morar’s new piece of sophistication and beauty includes 7 tracks, one of which you can check out below. Apocalyptic Art andRead More
Hercyn - Magda / Thera Roya - All This Suffering is Not Enough
“Dedicated to the souls, hearts and minds rotting under urban decay. All this suffering is not enough for our existence”. This time unlike any other, I went overseas (figuratevely speaking) to seek for something that eventually reminded me what a big part and influnce is music in my life. It does sound pretty big and it is so for what I have discovered in my journey to America hasn’t just blown me away… It has given me a whole another perspective of the darkly beauty, charm and also how underratedRead More
Cepheide - de silence et de suie / support black metal

Cepheide – De Silence Et De Suie

Autumn melancholy For this article I have been inspired by the newborn French formation Cepheide and their demo “De Silence Et De Suie”(translates “Silence and Soot”). After years of practicing in the shadows, this band has gathered enough strength and courage to show what they got under their belt. Cepheide’s members come from different musical backgrounds and that is evident in their mixed sound of diverse inspirations. Unique in its own way, cold and drenched in melancholy, “De Silence Et De Suie” is a perfect companion for the Autumn days.  Usually IRead More
Nemesis Sopor - Glas / support black metal

Nemesis Sopor – Glas

Atmospheric metal meets philosophy Although there’s plenty of time to wait til it would be appropriate to reflect on 2014’s harvest, I cannot restrain myself from exclaiming “Holy shit! What a hot year!” Being moved by my latest discovery from Dresden – Nemesis Sopor, I’m super excited to give you an insight about their new full-length “Glas” (Glass). Striking album with dense atmosphere. Cutting-edge production and demonstration of randomness, speaking of musicianship and vocal parties. Nemesis Sopor have outdone themselves on each stage of development. Besides the post-black & avant-gardeRead More
Winterhauch – Am Ende stirbt die Hoffnung / support black metal
What could be the best album to listen to in a gloomy day; something furious or maybe chilling with subtle melancholic touch? Essentially, that’s up to you but I might have a suggestion that could make easier picking what to feed your soul on. Apocalyptic Art provides another interesting band that is worth getting to know. Hailing from Germany, Winterhauch appeared for the first time with an EP back in 2011, whose title is “Am Ende stirbt die Hoffnung”. It translates “In The End Hope Dies”.  This record involves six tracksRead More
Frozen land - Nostalgy / support black metal
I’ve always had a special attitude towards black/doom for it requires one to be in a darker than the usual state of the mind. And by “usual”, you should know what I mean if you are as die-hard black metal fan as I am. There are appropriate conditions where such kind of music could be a solace and deliver you from your pain. Music such as Frozen Land performs. First of all Frozen Land is run by one person under the name Mephisto. No wonder why it’s a one-man band,Read More
depicting abysm
A panorama more deplorably desolate no human imagination can conceive In December 2013, Naturmacht Production released Immersion, the debut album of Depressive/Atmospheric Black Metal Band Depicting Abysm from St. Petersburg, Russia. Behind Depicting Abysm are the two musicians A (all instruments/Programming) and K (vox), both known for their other project, Epitimia. Reducing the names shows just perfectly what Immersion is about: The individual is reduced to nothing in the face of the overwhelming, endless ocean that is as beautiful as deadly. The sea is centre point of attention in theRead More
Forgotten Deity Logo
One of the easiest ways to enter the infinite realms of beauty of nature is through appropriate mood setting. The right music and imagery can fuel your imagination and take you beyond your reality. As to music, “Silent Forest” serves exactly this purpose. A fascinating atmospheric/ambient black metal incarnation of nature that was carefully shaped by Forgotten Deity – a one-man project from Poland. “Silent Forest” is far away from the hateful & blasphemous themes that most bands are aiming for within the boundaries of black metal. It’s a musicalRead More
