Deafheaven post first song of “New Bermuda”

“Brought to the Water” is online, the first track of “New Bermuda”. No big surprises, but excellent black metal. Dunno if I expected that from a band like Deafheaven. Somehow I wished for new influences to their music, but getting a straight black metal-song is […]

The dude in Sunwolf released a video for his black metal project Svårmod, which reminds me of the visuals bands like Neurosis, Ulver, and Dark Tranquillity use on their live shows. One sees cut scenes from movies, featured in the style of old-fashioned television screens. […]
