Bosse-De-Nage: The Death Posture

Perhaps the best “Black Metal” album released last year. scare quotes for the kvlt-basement-dweller types who get their undies in a bunch about dudes who aren’t lily-white northern Europeans with bad corpsepaint and reprehensible political views co-opting the sound they love.

Seriously, though, this is some rad shit. The lyrics about industrial society and post-modernity, combined with their approach to melody, make me think that this is what Thou would sound like if their main influence was Black Metal instead of Sludge.

Agalloch - Odal

This past winter was pretty bleak and bitter. Better off soon forgotten. However, some of the music I listened to over those cold, unforgiving months has stuck with me. Particularly this tune. A bit inappropriate for summer listening, to be sure, but something about it keeps me coming back. A pretty haunting tune. A beautiful one, even.
