There’s some bloody serious raw black metal coming from the gorgeously named Sainte Marie des Loups.
PWYW for the s/t digital album, or go get the tape.
Oomph. Gnosis’ doomy death metal hits like a truck.
Dweller on the Threshold is a debut EP to be proud of, with riffs coming out of orifices you didn’t even know existed.
Oh wow, this Machinefabriek & Signor Benedick the Moor collab is not at all what I expected when I saw “free Machinefabriek EP”.
Happily so, because this stuff is on fire: warped hip-hop with MF’s trademark subtle noises.
Only beef is that this isn’t longer.
Psychological Strategy Board did a haunting soundtrack to Kovitch’s biopic about British artist Penny Slinger.
Heavily manipulated synthesised sounds, as unsettling as Slinger’s visual works.
Out on Front and Follow.
Loooovely gritty textures on Transition by Plaster, out earlier this year on Kvitnu.
Gianclaudio Hashem Moniri plows his way through crunchy melodies and rhythms, where we get both light and dark. The last track is a gorgeous guitar-based drone.
Touching God’s s/t first EP weds synths and electronic beats to old school industrial screams and guitar noise.
Short, hits like a truck. A rusty one. Swans meets The Body (ish).
Leading up to their new album (out end of month), Thou have released a trio of EPs.
Start with the bone- and soul-crushing The House Primordial, and then let yourself be surprised…
Dreissk dropped a surprise EP on n5MD last week, and it is very strong.
Pulsating rhythms, warm synth waves, and a true threshold-crossing atmosphere. It builds up, hopeful and aware of peril at the same time.
‘Emptiness Is a Long Story’ is something of a best-of album for The Joy of Nature, revisiting some key tracks from the project’s career.
Introspective, psychedelic neofolk.
