If it feels like it’s only been a few months since we last heard from Italian one-man black metal project Chiral, that’s because it actually has only been a few months since we last heard from Chiral. It was just this past June, after all, when our friends at Fólkvangr Records reissued the one-man project’s gorgeous 2016 record Gazing Light Eternally on cassette with newly recorded bonus track “The Gazer’s Throne,” and...

At such times, some of us search for music that catches t...

An ice cold sky oppressively weighing itself down upon us. The night could never feel colder than when ringing out over the wastelands of Europe, Black Metal takes its evil standing. Chilling through your ears. Black Metal lends itself to experimentation and atmosphere in a way like no other Metal genre. Italy doesn’t exactly get the most attention when it comes to Metal or Black Metal, even. Ah Ciliz and Chiral are up and comers from Ita...
