This is awesome avant doom black metal played with a piano instead of a guitar. Piano, drums, vocals, fucking cool. This record is actually from 2008 but since it's rare, deeeeep underground, and amazingly good, i figured it deserved a review since it showed up here at the station. So many good songs! 33RPM.
A1.) Koan - Piano, simple slow chords, then some rumbling dissonance
A2.) + Seizures - Pounding beat, weird sliding tones, falling piano arpeggios, screaming
A3.) + + Hex - Furious piano arpeggios and whisper-like black metal screams. Really cool!
A4.) + Execution - Deep driving piano chords and desperate screams.
A5.) + + Entropy - Twinkling piano and feedback, clean vox, eventually gets a little heavier but this is a sad one. So good.
B1.) Anesthetic - Slow sombre chords, leads pretty cleanly into the next track
B2.) + Bars - Sparse dissonant staccato piano chords, pounding on a detuned bass drum, and then piano grindcore…oh yeah! If you play this one, start at track B1.
B3.) Verdelet - Starts pretty but then gets frantic on piano. Electric guitar notes. Quickly alternative fast/slow bits.
B4.) Return - Short and sweet piano track.
B5.) + Repulsive Resurrection - Pummels you in the beginning then backs off some.
