ALBUM PREMIERE : Mavradoxa - Lethean Lament

Posted by Nick Skog on Thursday, June 22, 2017, In : Song/Video 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...

ALBUM PREMIERE: NONE - selftitled

Posted by Nick Skog on Saturday, April 8, 2017, In : Song/Video Premieres 
NONE's selftitled debut is premiering now on Metal Trenches!

"It's always somewhat amusing to me to judge a depressive BM album in terms of words such as "like" and "enjoyability."  These probably aren't the best descriptors, so consider them in this case to be measurements of emotional immersion.  Within this context, None has plenty to take in.  For those out there who like to just lay back and soak in the misery, None will certainly deliver.  The morose, atmospheric guitars and despairing, ...

RELEASE NEWS / SONG PREMIERE: NONE - selftitled [Atmospheric / Depressive Black Metal]

Posted by Nick Skog on Tuesday, February 14, 2017, In : Release News 
Atmospheric / DSBM band "NONE" to release debut self-titled album on Hypnotic Dirge on April 11, 2017



Chilling and despondent music from the Pacific Northwest is what you’ll hear on NONE’s impressive debut album. The piercing guitar tone interwoven with haunting and depressing synth pads and piano melodies result in a sound that is constantly plodding forward, marching in despair towards an empty void. The solid blasting on this album provides a constant pulse and momentum while desperate ...
