Well friends, this may be it, with nothing to do but sit at home and listen to tunes while the world dies around us. So for the three of you (or less) who actually listens to these: I salute you, and deliver unto you the soundtrack to our apocalypse. Not much else to say, I just hope there’s still people to write for next month.
Ambient synth and soundscapes from Unreqvited’s latest EP starts us off, and leads seamlessly into Jaern’s stoner doom. Then we crank it up with some excellent tech death courtesy of Xenobiotic, which flows into the intense blackened melodic death of KVAEN. Sons of a Wanted Man follow with wonderful blackgaze chased by the experimental synths and sludgy black metal of Tombs. Speeding it up, we have riffy prog from the new Intronaut, and then we wrap with a couple of atmoblack tracks from Skyforest and Cult of Fire respectively.
One request before you go — please spend some dollars on albums and merch from the artists you love. With everything shutting down many of these artists who put their everything into music are going to have no income. Buy a shirt, buy a CD, subscribe to their patreon (is that a thing? It should be!)
See you next month?
One of these albums is Name Your Price, and the total for the rest is just shy of $55. To create this album would cost about $13. Support artists!
