ყორღანი – კავკასიონი (Kurgan – Caucasian)

ბედნიერი დღე! I’ve finally found a really good traditional black metal band from Georgia! Heavy on synth and mood, and inaudible growls(in what I hope is Georgian). This is what I’ve been searching for the last 3-4 years! გამომყევი ქვესკნელში სამოგზაუროთ!

Hellébore / Organisation Calvaire – Table Rase

Table Rase

Yellow Eyes/Monvment – Split

Two of the best underground/true/lo-fi/whatever-you-want-to-call-it black metal bands, to emerge from the United States, have banded together and released a truly monumental and blasphemous split! The cassette is at the same time the second album released by both the New York based, Yellow Eyes and Chicago based, Monvment. If you ever doubted that there  could ever come great and raw black metal music from the land of plastic and over consumption, this cassette shows great promise of two great and individual bands may be coming forth to set their mark on the underground black metal scene!
