I’ve started negativeblack basically as a means to blog, write, think, and rant about anything that interests me – free from the constraints that working for a webzine brings. No deadlines, no release dates, no pressure.
I’ll focus on heavy music, b/w photography, and dark movies. Plus, anything else that gets my attention.

About the bands:
A FOREST OF STARS
The Gentlemen’s Club of A Forest of Stars are a collection of 19th century vaudeville, classical and burlesque musicians, inspired by the teachings of their ages’ greatest writers, composers, artists and mediums. Their intention is to appoint a fusion of black metal, romanticism, the occult, psychedelia, folk and the improprieties of madness into one unsightly whole, much against the wishes of both Her Majesty’s Government and indeed fashionable society at large. They describe their music as a failed attempt to reach out to the celestial glory of the unconquerable cosmos through the deepest, cloying, incense-choked, dimly lit attic of their spiritually corrupt minds; a messy, highly flawed journey awash with violins, flutes, Middle Eastern percussion, doggerel verse, opium, karimbas, claret, base chants and grossly unprofound meanderings all wrapped into a filthy, threadbare blanket of black metal; An ethanol soaked and laudanum fuelled journey through the highways and byways of a shadow world populated by venomous villains and corrupt clergy, whirling endlessly through the infinite, cold void of space.
HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY
One of Austria’s most promising Metal outputs was founded in 2011 by songwriter M.S. who joined forces with his old friend and vocalist J.J. to lounge a project that combines beauty and emotion with the bleakness and fury of Black Metal.
With the sensational release of their self-titled debut record via Art of Propaganda Records in the fall of 2012, 3 live-members completed the lineup to be able to present those oppressive soundscapes nowadays known as the major trademark of Harakiri for the Sky.
In April 2014 the second full-length “Aokigahara” (engl. “Sea of Trees”) obtained highly positive feedback again while the five Austrians entered club- und festival-stages in Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Sweden, Italy and Switzerland.
Please let me know if you are interested in arranging one of the scheduled shows. Feel free to share this mail with any other eventually interested promoters or venues!
Thank you very much in advance!
