Becoming The Forest

I was thinking today how many really EXCELLENT publications there are available that explore and celebrate black metal. Evolution Of The Cult, Beyond The Darkness, Becoming The Forest, Metalion:The Slayer Diaries to name but a few. The most recent one to come into my life is Becoming The Forest. When I first heard about Becoming… Continue reading Becoming The Forest

Good Things That Have Happened This Week

New Boots Anyone who knows me well will know that, for the past decade, I've been wearing French Ranger boots. I've walked my way through several pairs, only getting rid when the soles have worn through. I've always bought them from the same place without a problem, but for some reason last year, I thought… Continue reading Good Things That Have Happened This Week

Sound Of The Day : Gloosh

Thank you Black Metal Promotion for the introduction to Gloosh. I'm currently obsessing over the project's phenomenal debut album Timewheel. I think my favourite track on the album has to be the very first offering, Vjkhr. The opening knocks the breath out of me. The music of "Gloosh" is black metal of a classical form… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Gloosh

Sound Of The Day : Nyrst

I wasn't expecting to find anything remarkable when I powered up YouTube this morning, but the gods were on my side and thought I was deserving of something a bit special. Icelandic black metal project Nyrst have, with their song Orsök, conjured up one of the most dynamic and impressive tracks I've heard in a… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Nyrst

Sound Of The Day : Gaahl’s Wyrd

I've been feeling musically malnourished recently. For everything I've been trying out the past few weeks, my reaction has been like this: Nope, next, nope, next, nope, next... It's been making me feel pretty fucking sad, to be honest. I'm like a different person when I have good, new music in my life. So today,… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Gaahl’s Wyrd

Sound Of The Day : Wendigo

If there's one thing they do well in Quebec it's black metal. Whenever someone says 'you should check this out, it's from Quebec,' I'm always, always interested. Wendigo is one band which was suggested to me, just yesterday as it happens, and I've been really enjoying it. The video I'm sharing below features a series… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Wendigo

Sound Of The Day : NYIÞ

It was back in 2015 that I first talked about mysterious Icelandic project NYIÞ but today I re-discovered this massively important band. I'm currently at that point where I'm ransacking the pages of Google, trying to find out as much as I can about what the creepy as shit ambient endeavour has been up to… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : NYIÞ
