Album Review: Abigail Williams – Walk Beyond The Dark 8.7

November 23, 2019 CarcassBOMB 0

2019 has been a very interesting and unique year for music and my taste in general. I won’t go fully into my thoughts on the year, but one thing I’ve noticed is all the amazing releases dropping at the very tale end of the year. For example, one of the best goddamn black metal records of the year dropped last Friday. The record I’m speaking of is the new Abigail Williams outing, it has absolutely blown me away.

Album Review: Wandar – Zyklus 9

November 19, 2019 CarcassBOMB 0

Zyklus is an outstanding black metal record that not a lot of people have heard over here and I’m honestly surprised. The quality and creative direction are both high end and it’s presented eloquently. Wandar are a German band who have been around since 2006 putting out music independently. I received the cassette from indie tape bistro Repose Records earlier this year and it has since become one of my favorite tapes. It’s also out on Vinyl, very recently actually. I’d recommend this to any black metal fan, especially those I see on social media growing weary of post-black releases this year. Wandar encompass most forms of black metal and won’t bore you about it.

Microdose: Ploughshare – Tellurian Insurgency (November 29)

November 14, 2019 CarcassBOMB 1

Well that was unsettling. Ploughshare play a fucked kind of black/death/sludge metal that will make you feel physically unsafe even in the comfort of your own home. Tellurian Insurgency is their brand new EP through Aussie label Brilliant Emperor and it releases on the 29th of November. Not an album for the easily scared, if this is you, then turn your radio back on and continue listening to Kyle and Jackie-O, you clicked the wrong social media link. Happens to the best of us.

Tape Review: Peasant/Somalgia – Within, Without (2019)

November 10, 2019 CarcassBOMB 0

I love split cassettes, you never know what is going to be thrown at you. It forces you into a more open minded state and what I received from this dank split is some enchanting black metal from a bunch of grim cunts in the UK. Limited to a now sold out 50, this is indeed a neat tape to receive. Might as well get on it digitally and give it a listen.

Album Review: Deadwood Lake – Immortalised In Death 7

November 4, 2019 CarcassBOMB 0

This is my first encounter with Deadwood Lake and I have to say that, all in all, it’s pretty positive. This band is a black metal outfit that is on the melodic side of the spectrum. Melodic and atmospheric black metal is kind of my domain, as it’s what I tend to listen to the most, so I’m usually a harder critic on these types of bands. That being said, I’m pretty pleased with this album.

Micro Dose: Vale Of Pnath – Accursed (2019)

November 3, 2019 CarcassBOMB 0

To end the week we have the new project from blackened death unit Vale Of Pnath. Despite how good this is I don’t have loads say about it, It’s an amazing death metal EP with a pitch black atmosphere. The vocals are this high screech and the guitars cross the heaviness of death metal with the trademark iciness of black metal guitar leads. There are a lot of dark themes explored in the lyrics, which are actually pretty easy to decipher as the vocals are very clear, which is always a plus. Cool ass cover art too, props to these guys.
