My love for both of these bands runs deep. Having already reviewed every Mavradoxa release to date, I’m anxiously awaiting my copy of 2019’s Nightmarrow from Hypnotic Dirge Records. I’m also completely stoked on the forthcoming release from folk metallers, Wandering Oak, who I had the pleasure of sharing the stage with back in 2016. At the time, WO was a Massachusetts based band, but circumstances forced the project to re...

Mavradoxa is an atmospheric black metal band rooted in the Laurentian region of upstate New York. The music of Mavradoxa is expansive, atmospheric, and melancholic.

ALBUM PREMIERE: Mavradoxa - Lethean Lament

Posted by Nick Skog on Thursday, June 22, 2017, In : Song Premieres 
Mavradoxa's album "Lethean Lament" can be streamed in full thanks to Invisible Oranges

Too often atmospheric metal exists as glorified background noise. Maybe some bands intend for their records to serve that purpose, and maybe turning riffs into soundtracks is entirely the point. Either way, though, I don’t like it. Riffs, screaming and fast drums demand attention. Too much of this style exists for a new release to not command some kind of authority.

Upstate New York’s Mavradoxa have a c...

Ave, can you introduce your band to our readers? – When was it founded and what style of music do you play, etc.?

Nival and Lux created Mavradoxa in early winter 2016. The band is a realization of Nival’s dream to create a meaningful and emotive sound, playing on twin themes: the spellbinding strength of Nature, and the absolute desolation of modernity. We would prefer to resist being c...

As a native Montanan, an inherent reverence for nature and open wilderness will always be in my constitution, regardless of my urban transplanting. So much so, that despite my life-long appreciation for heavy music, the genre of black metal never held much sway with me before discovering the more nature-inclined and introspective avenues being explored by atmospheric and post-black bands like Agalloch, Borknagar, and P...
