None is an album by the eponymous atmospheric black metal act, released on April 11, by Hypnotic Dirge Records. Thirty minutes long, the record has only three songs: Cold, Wither and Suffer. A surprising, sinister, melancholic and exceedingly artistic album, the melodies are astoundingly poetic, and elevates to a vigorous and consistent scale of sound the omnipresent lucidity of an original and overwhelming style. 

With impeccable har...

Interessante lavoro da parte di questa band americana dedita ad un black metal atmosferico e dalle forti sfumature depressive.

Tre brani per circa una mezz’ora di buona musica sono il fatturato di quest’album autointitolato, pubblicato dalla Hypnotic Dirge: anche se il monicker None non è certo di quelli che si ricordano in maniera imperitura ed il genere suonato è discretamente inflazionato, il lavoro regala con buona continu...

It’s probably not surprising that there is little in the way of information available about a band called None. They don’t pop up in the normal places you would try and gather facts about everything from band members to releases, inside leg measurements and favourite colours, although as far as the last question is concerned no doubt the answer would be black. All we have to go on is a scant introduction from the Canadian Record...

Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, today we have None and their bone chilling self-titled debut release. Set to be released on Hypnotic Dirge Records, this Canadian label has managed to uncover one of the most atmospherically rich Black Metal outfits to ever come out of the USA. Featuring around 30 minutes of music, this release concocts long song filled with brutality and beauty. With similar influences to Cascadian BM b...
