I've been spending some time with Leviathan tonight. I just picked up Scar Sighted. Somehow, I never listened to Leviathan- Good to listen to a straight up BM album. Reminds me that I still need BM in my life.  I try to get out, but they keep pulling me back in. Thanks for the recommendation.

You mean Xasthur is going to be acoustic music from now on? :blink:

 

(I'm sure it'll still be creepy as hell, though!)

Xasthur is my favorite depressive black metal band. Be prepared to be disturbed. (Or perhaps bored out of your mind if you're not into DSBM.)

 

I would not recommend listening through just one album to judge any band.

 

Here are some highlight Xasthur tracks to check out. (Don't abandon a track just because not much is happening at the moment.)

 

"The Prison Of Mirrors" from Subliminal Genocide

"Telepathic With The Deceased" from Telepathic With The Deceased

"Xastur Within" from To Violate The Oblivious

"Karma/Death" from Portal Of Sorrow

"Dwelling Beneath The Woods" from A Gate Through Bloodstained Mirrors

"Doomed By Howling Winds" from A Darkened Winter

"Doomed By Howling Winds" from Xasthur

"The Awakening To The Unknown Perception Of Evil" from The Funeral Of Being

"The Eerie Bliss And Torture (Of Solitude)" from Xasthur / Leviathan

"Soul Abduction Ceremony" from Xasthur / Angra Mainyu

"In The Hate Of Battle" from Nocturnal Poisoning

"Purgatory Spiral" from Defective Epitaph

"All Reflections Drained" from All Reflections Drained

"A Curse For The Lifeless" from Nortt / Xasthur

"Nocturnal Poisoning [rehearsal]" from Suicide In Dark Serenity

 

Here is a link to Xasthur's Metal Archives page.

 

Speaking of the Leviathan split with Xasthur, my favorite Leviathan track "Unfailing Fall Into Naught" is from that. Much more depressive than most Leviathan material.

 

By the way, if anyone hasn't heard Death - Pierce Me by Silencer, listen to it nowww! The insane vocals (as well as much more manic instrumentation than Xasthur) are what makes that band interesting. The vocalist was institutionalized after recording the album. He later had an industrial / dark ambient project called Diagnose: Lebensgefahr and released one album entitled Transformalin. Amusingly, the artwork consists of stuff related to mental institutions. XD

 

More people are familiar with Shining, partially because they mix the depressive BM with flashy rock influences and other styles -- even folk and blues!

I liked last year's Krieg's Transient and I need to listen to that one again, but this feels a little more vintage. Good f'ugly album!

I've spoken with Lord Imperial (Neil Jameson) of Krieg a few times, along with many other members of metal bands. Thought it was hilarious that they featured samples of Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z on Blue Miasma.

I've noticed using the mobile site the quote defaults your comments at the start, inside, of the quotes. If you were not paying close attention you could easily comment in the quotes. Probably an honest mistake.

Ah, okay. I had no idea it was like that.

Fans of old-school death get a return of Morgoth tomorrow The band has only put out some teaser tracks. The first Morgoth release in 19 years.

The new singer has an standard sound making the band's new work very accessible. Guitars in front with super clear bass and drums.

Another fantastic Morgoth song, showing that the tried and true formula still works today as it did in the golden era of the death genre.


I was looking forward to this album when I read it would come out this year, still I never thought it would be this good. Amazing! A favorite so far this year.

Keep posting Redcar. I know I can count on you exposing me to cool DM I've never heard of. I'm going to look forward to streaming the entire release when it's available- I do dig the old school  vibe if we're talking in the tradition of Asphyx style......

Yes, that's the case-not intentional on my part. Enjoying my playlist of 2013-14 tunes right now on Sonos....

I'm kind of late on the Xasthur/Leviathan discussion but do you all have a copy of their split? It's one of my favorite releases from both of them actually, especially the Leviathan material. Also I'd have to say my favorite Xasthur album is definitely Subliminal Genocide, Prison of Mirrors is a monster of a song.  The split for those who have yet to hear it:

 

 

Also on the lookout for some new stoner doom as it's finally warming up here and my appetite for cold depressive black metal will be waning. Recommendations?

Yep, I have it. It was released exclusively on vinyl, then reissued on CD with bonus tracks. The artwork shown on that YouTube link is for the CD version. I also have a rare demo version of Subliminal Genocide with different versions of all the songs as well as tracks that did not make the cut for the final release. The track order was also switched.
