Anybody remember the Canadian black metal band Hellébore that I wrote about a while back? That cassette was really neat and left me wanting for more, but noting new seemed to spring forth from them. Until that fateful day when I came across Mr. V from the French experimental un-orthodox black metal project Organisation Calvaire, who whispered softly about an amalgamation of old and new ways of the dark sonic arts. And now the time is here to finally hear what that most unholy of collaborations has begotten!

Top Whatever Albums I Remembered From 2015 In No Particular Order (Or, Blimey That’s a Lot of Black Metal Albums Mate)
It’s that time of the year again, well it was a month ago, when it’s time to make an arbitrary list of albums released last year that you liked the most. I don’t really care about these kinds of lists, but for your enjoyment, here is an arbitrary list of albums what I liked! Get on with it!
Alright, before I scramble together a list of the best whatever albums of last year, let’s take a quick little listen to two French black/prog? metal project I’ve been meaning to have written about quite a while back. Organisation Calvaire and Urbansvart by Kalvr!
By the way, what was the deal with 2015? For some reason I’ve never put any mind to the year albums were released last year so I can barely remember any released in 2015… I know it’s been a good year for experimental music, but it feels like nothing was released. But, maybe I’ve just gotten a brain tumor and had a music memory lapse. Forget it, let’s listen to Diapsiqui- I mean Organisation Calvaire!
Alright, guess it is time to try and get a hold of the immensely weird, esoteric, avant-garde, mess that is Jute Gyte. Dissonant melodies, disharmonious rhythms and an overall discordant sound is probably the easiest and most straightforward way of trying to explain that which can not be described. Yet underneath all this hobbled mess of frequencies there is still a fun and playful sound that is truly unique for Jute Gyte. I have heard my fair share of various avant-garde, experimental, esoteric, and overall weird metal, but never have I come across something this dense and varied as the works of Jute Gyte; with a quite large and prolific discography that jumps from slow, discordant guitar lamentations, to weird experimental black metal, to just straight up harsh noise, you can never be sure what you’re going to get with him, except for something bizarre and unique.
Sorry, yet again for the long impromptu lack of posts, got a bit burned out and didn’t feel like writing anything here. Wait, I’m not sorry at all for not posting anything, this is my blog and I can do what ever I want, it’s not like I’m getting payed for doing this! Chaos rules this world and I should get more in touch with nature and please Eris by doing what the Hel I want! Fnord and hot dog buns on Fridays!!
…Ak’chamel is good and you should listen to it…
Laying sleepless in my bed, flipping through my newly added music folders and Discogs on my tablet, a distant feeling of nostalgia struck me during my sombre and melancholy thoughts. A forlorn memory of an old love for a very under appreciated album struck me like finding a old shoe box of mementos tucked away in the deepest reaches of the closet. This resulted in laying awake in the deep night reminiscing of a good time in my life when I was beginning my exploration into the sweet world of avant-garde music, with (V.E.G.A.) – Far From You as one of my guides. Lost to the iron grip of iTunes DRM policy, the album fell into my mental backlog of albums, until now…
Underground bedroom black metal with some folk-inspired parts, need I say more? …Perhaps I should.
