Apostils Against Hegemony, Vol. I: Transitive Properties

It feels close. It feels like a warm reminder that there are many of us out there with a shared love for musical expres­sion and exper­i­ment­a­tion. It is a cul­ture where our ϙueer pre­oc­cu­pa­tion with sex and death is not just lived but cast through a vari­ety of cre­at­ive lenses, and I love it.

Μηλινόη’s Stygian Dementia #06

Vaguely lovelorn for the unknown, des­pair­ing, Μηλινόη invites you to drink of her cup, aural waters calmer than usual, but by no means easy to digest.

Obsequiae - The Palms of Sorrowed Kings

The one, the only, the ori­ginal Castle Metal. OBSEQUIAE is back with its most pol­ished album yet, far ahead of what little com­pet­i­tion there is. But will it turn out to be the her­ald of a new era?

Grotto Grove and Shrine #01

Ἀρέθουσα & Μηλινόη don’t always see eye to eye, but the sounds from their realms inter­mingle all the same. Light and dark ambi­ences, drones, and rituals.

Μηλινόη, 28 October 2019

Μηλινόη latest playl­ist, fea­tur­ing Arnaut Pavle, Cold Curse, Haunter, Holy Fawn, Mor­ti­ferum, Nacht­mys­tium, Odium, Tyr­an­nic, Yel­low Eyes, and Yhdarl.

Yellow Eyes - Rare Field Ceiling

Rare Field Ceil­ing feels like part of a con­tinuum, par­tic­u­larly with the last two albums, a logical next stage of the jour­ney, and it’s one of the best, most emo­tion­ally reward­ing jour­neys that I know of.

Μηλινόη’s Stygian Dementia #04

Μηλινόη invites you to stare her depres­sion right in its ugly face. It’s a mask. And behind it, another one. Driven towards death, will we embrace the empti­ness, and so never live again?

Μηλινόη, 3 June 2019

Μηλινόη’s latest playl­ist, fea­tur­ing Aor­atos, Beth­le­hem, Drawn Into Des­cent, Esoctri­li­hum, Glassing, Laster, Okada, Sad­ism, Thonian Horde, and Val­borg.
