Mmmmmm black metal with a hot, steamy metalcore twist.

Blackened metalcore? Blackcore? Yes, I'm pumped for their new one coming out at the end of this month, glad you asked!


Reminds me of Mgla, but catchier and with a more polished sound. Very catchy, at times complex, at times atmospheric and in general pretty brutal and unforgiving black metal.


One of the best and most exciting black metal bands to come out in the past few years. Hailing from Portugal, this take on atmospheric black metal has a more straightforward, polished sound with catchiness that doesn't detract from its dark feel.
Absolutely stunning riffing with excellent modern dynamics and heartfelt vocals. This debut is a confident and forward thinking introduction to the band.
