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

Sound Of The Day : Nachtzeit

I didn't realise that my head needed some black metal heavily influenced by the primitive sound of the old days...but when Nachtzeit popped up on my Bandcamp search, and it was actually massively listenable, I was so god damn appreciative. The project Nachtzeit is manned by the Swede behind ambient OMBM project Lustre, and its… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Nachtzeit

Sound Of The Day : Lustre

I haven't listened to Swedish atmospheric OMBM project Lustre in some time...and its a shame really. Coming back to the music today has felt a little bit like going home - I pretty much know what to expect. But there is real comfort in that. Still Innocence the new Lustre album will be coming out… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Lustre

Sound Of The Day : Grift

I thoroughly enjoy the music of Swedish OMBM project Grift. It's solid, masterfully layered, deeply satisfying black metal that never leaves me, as a listener, empty. And the vocals...which are such a vitally important element for me in this genre...are some of the best in the Scandinavian black metal scene. Without a doubt. The track… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Grift

Sound Of The Day : Crown Of Asteria

Meghan Wood, of atmospheric black metal project Crown Of Asteria, has to be one of THE most productive musicians out there. Seriously. And everything, everything she offers to the world is mesmerizingly good. I have been listening to her latest release Haruspex since yesterday, and folks, I just can't turn it off. All of the music… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Crown Of Asteria

Sound Of The Day : Björk

I often have dreams of Björk  bringing out a new album every month - I crave her creations always. Her music has been a valuable life source for well over 15 years.  It's helped me to better understand myself, and to rise again and again and again. She has a new album coming out soon… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Björk

Sound Of The Day : Green Elder

A bit headachy today, so I went down the dark folk route where I found Green Elder, an Appalachian ritualistic folk project that aims to 'paint forests in sound by giving their natural seasonal beauty aural life and their mythical lore an abstract presence.' I've been relaxing into the gorgeous track Winter's First Fire from… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Green Elder

Sound Of The Day : Wolves In The Throne Room

Holy mother fucking shit. Once upon a time, I knew the ins and outs of what WITTR were eating for breakfast...but I lost touch. I lost touch BIG TIME because only YESTERDAY did I catch wind of their latest full-length Thrice Woven, with, what has to be, one of my favourite BM album covers in… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Wolves In The Throne Room

Sound Of The Day : Osi And The Jupiter

I'm steering clear of the Myrkur chaos for now, and today uncovered Osi And The Jupiter, a Northern Pagan Folk inspired project from Ohio. In case you're wondering about the name (I know I was) the man at the helm, Sean Deth, was inspired by the names of his two German Shepherds - Osiris and… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Osi And The Jupiter

Sound Of The Day : Apathie

My knowledge of German black metal isn't all that brilliant to be honest, but I was still a bit taken aback that it's taken until 2017 for me to listen to Apathie, an astoundingly solid project that formed in Oberlausitz way back in 2009. Better late than never though, right? Right. I was on Bandcamp… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Apathie
