Exploration: Agony – Apocalyptic Dawning (1995)

These short lived Canadian crushers are labeled as "brutal" death metal (BROOTAL) which I guess is a genre. If "Old School" death metal can be a genre I guess anything can. Yeah, yeah, I know "brutal" death metal has it's... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Sorcier des Glaces – The Puressence of Primitive Forests (2011)

Sorcier des Glaces is a name I always see floating around on heralded words. Sorcier des Glaces, or SDG for you cool kids (and how their logo looks now) always have albums for sale in pretty much every single metal distro... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Slaughter – Strappado (1987)

When the tangled and murky origins of death metal are discussed, Canada's Strappado is often thrown into the mix. In 1987 death metal had yet to settle on an established sound, and this period is one of my favorite periods... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Iskra- Bureval (2009)

Miserere Luminis – Miserere Luminis (2009)

Since we're still in a Gris mood from yesterday I thought I'd keep that Canadian train rolling with Miserere Luminis. Miserere Luminis is a one time collaborative project from the members of Gris and Sombres Forêts, another Quebec based black metal... Continue Reading →

Gris – Il Etait une Foret (2007)

Gris' 2013 album À l'âme enflammée, l'äme constellée... fucking blew my little brain when it came out, once I got into it. It's a double album and fairly dense but once I cracked that nut, man oh man, was I sold. Stunningly... Continue Reading →

Paths – Where the Oakenhearted Dwell (2014)

In my mind Paths is like a dormant giant. Well, not so much dormant, I guess, a noisy giant that nobody is fucking looking at. I think he's (yup, one man black metal band) just about ready to take over... Continue Reading →
