Gorugoth ‎- Ankoku Shinwa (Myth Of Darkness)

Ankoku Shinwa (Myth Of Darkness) is an album by Gorugoth ‎that was released on the label Cosmic Garden Productions in 1999. This album is black metal and is a compilation of previously released tracks.

This is an awesome album. The tracks have dope riffs which sound really menacing. The album is raw (which I love) leading to an often messy sound which is awesome. The drums and guitars sometimes get all muddied up (this is a good thing). His vocals are awesome, they switch between high pitch shrieks to low and evil sounding vocals. The album has an aggressive and angry sound and atmosphere to it, there was probably a good amount of anger put into these recordings considering the really unfriendly vibes. I know that like an insane amount of black metal is unfriendly, but this album really delivers that.

An Autumn For Crippled Children – Eternal

Eternal is an album by An Autumn For Crippled Children that was self-released in 2016. This album is post-black metal.

This is such an awesome post-black metal album. The guitars sound awesome and extremely fuzzed out and have a heavy shoegaze vibe to them. The guitar melodies are a mix of mostly post-rock and shoegaze. Because its post-black metal this album has a much different vibe and sound than other black metal genres. Sometimes it sounds happy and uplifting, yet also tinged with melancholy. There’s also tracks and moments which have a darker or sadder feel to them. There’s really nice bass work too that shows clearly through the fuzzed out guitars. The vocals are really awesome too and sound great with the fuzzed out guitars, creating a really nice atmosphere.

Warloghe – The Black Tower

The Black Tower is an album by Warloghe that was self-released in 1996. This album is black metal.

This is a really nice album. The guitars are really nice in this, high-pitched and awesome melodies. There’s some bass too that shines really nice through the higher frequency guitars. I really like the melodies in this album. The vocal style in this album is interesting, no shrieks and stuff like that. But instead slow weird vocals that sound very strained.

Eulalia – The Basement Demos

The Basement Demos is an EP by Eulalia that was self-released in 2011. This EP is raw black metal. Eulalia is one of the very first black metal bands I got into (probably the third or second!).

This album is awesome. Raw as fuck distorted black metal. The first track is very raw and sounds distorted and is rather hard to decipher whats going on. The second track is fast, intense, and aggressive. Fast blast beats and dope guitar all recorded raw with some weird crackly sounds in the mix. The guitar goes from riffs to just playing chaotically. The third track introduces vocals that sound awesome and like they have some reverb on them. This track is raw too with the same buzzing. In some parts the guitar drowns out the drums and its awesome. The EP closes with a track that’s much less raw than the others that has great riffs and blast beats.

I also love this band’s imagery. Lynette Bishop from the best anime ever Strike Witches and black metal, what is there not to love~!

Graal – Sigullum Naturae

Sigullum Naturae  is an album by Graal that was released on Moon Records in 1998. This album is progressive psychedelic black / death metal.

This album is really amazing and is an extremely unique black metal album. The album has an immense amount of technical skill. Guitars that are a mix of black metal, death metal, and psychedelic rock. Awesome and heavy use of bass guitar that sounds awesome and really helps push the unique sound. And dope drums that switch between very non-metal rhythms to jazz to metal. The composition of the tracks is really awesome. They’re progressive and the music really doesn’t sound that much like metal at times. The medlodies go allover the place, death metal, black metal, psyche rock, experimental, and really fun happy sounding stuff. The vocals are mostly lazy sounding and range in a few different styles black metal vocals and clean slow singing, and sound really dope. This album is really awesome and is really an experience.

As much as I hate pirating, the label KITSCH MAGIK has illegally re-released it as part of their “Copyright Infringement/ Bootleg” series, so you can listen to it and download for free there

Corpus Golgotha – Ilusiones

Ilusiones is an album by Corpus Golgotha that was released on the label Delirium Records in 1996. This album is black metal and doom metal.

This is a pretty dope album, they do a good job mixing doom metal and black metal. Sometimes its slow, sometimes its fast, sometimes it switches between the genres (or see-saws between them), and sometimes it blends the genres together; they definitely mix it up and keep the album exciting. The structure and stuff changes around too. The album has a nice level of rawness to it, gritty but you can easily tell and define everything. The melodies and vocals are dope too. This is an awesome album, Rosa Mística and Ilusiones are my fave tracks on the album~

Forest of Harambe – Under The Sign of Harambe

Under The Sign of Harambe is an EP by Forest of Harambe that was self-released in 2016 (yesterday actually). This EP is raw black metal, and its also dank as fuck ayy lmoa xDD

Get ready to get your dick out because this release in entirely themed on Harambe. For those who are somehow not in the know of the greatest tragedy since The Holocaust, Harambe was a gorilla that was shot dead at a zoo after a child fell into the exhibit. The world weeps for the loss of a legend, and mass suicides have been apparent. People cry out into the air “IS THIS LOSS!?”. Harambe instantly became a dank me-me instantly after his death. Many online posts and jokes have been dedicated to him and Viper even made a song/album dedicated to God’s greatest creation, yes, even more great than Viper.

Of course it only makes sense for a black metal band to come out of all the despair and pain caused by Harambe’s cruel death. Forest of Harambe have come to deliver the music the world needed. A short and sweet of raw black metal awesomeness full of so much despair that it can topple any and all other black metal musicians. You better not call this a joke because this is the most serious black metal album ever recorded, and the most important album I have ever posted and ever will post here. I actually should just close the blog after this post. You wont want to listen to anything else.

Memes aside, this is actually a pretty dope EP. Its raw but nice and bassy. The vocals are awesome, high pitches screeches channeling Harambe’s spirit and summoning him upon the pentagram made of the blood of children surrounded by bananas. The vocals sound like cool echoes and are sonically under the guitars. The guitars are the loudest part of this, dark repetitive melodies that are actually pretty awesome.
