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

Sounds Of The Day

In 2019 I made music but listened to hardly any. Chelsea Wolfe managed to find her way into my head with The Birth Of Violence as did Grift with Aftonklang Live at Emanuel Vigeland Mausoleum, but that (and Windir) was pretty much all I could tolerate. However, today I felt ready to reclaim my love… Continue reading Sounds Of The Day

But, I had the good sense to click on Jonna's Jintons Singing Ice video, a two hour long 'song' of growing ice creating otherworldly sounds. And folks...my soul for a while stopped trembling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qd-CwJa1SHE

Sound Of The Day : Horzines Stara

It was by pure, glorious chance that I happened upon French musical outfit Horzines Stara today. Thank you Bandcamp! I know zilch about this project...yet, but I DO know that I'm infatuated with Wayfaring Stranger, an American folk tune from the early 19th Century and the first track from their EP Ces Voûtes. The vibes… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Horzines Stara

Sound Of The Day : Chelsea Wolfe

The frame of mind I've been in recently hasn't enabled me to listen to much music. I'd put something on and find I wasn't able to absorb it, and, after a few minutes or sometimes even less, I'd need to click off and retreat back into silence. Now, don't get me wrong, I need my… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Chelsea Wolfe

Sound Of The Day : The Blue Hour

It's just this moment dawned on me that I can share podcasts as part of my ongoing Sound Of The Day routine! And today, I have such a treat for you, SUCH A TREAT! The podcast is called The Blue Hour and its hosted by a writer and YouTuber called Anna Bridgland AKA Equinox. The… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : The Blue Hour
