Initial Descent: December 15 – 25, 2021

krolok band

Okay, here’s the scoop: Fearless Editor Josh™ who usually puts this things together is away on a family holiday, so backup Slightly Fearful Editor Chris™ is here to get Initial Descent together. And, um…it looks like real slim pickings for the end of the year, huh? So you only get one feature today, the black metal rumblings of Slovakia’s Krolok, who I recall had a damn fine album with 2017’s Flying Above Ancient Ruins. Looks like they’re back with some more evil in the form of Funeral Winds & Crimson Sky, which after a cursory listen sounds like it’s going to be a similar banger. There’s a handful of other releases coming out that I’m sure are worth your time and attention, so check out what’s coming Christmas week after the break and we’ll see you next time.
