Serpentine Path - Emanations (album)
Serpentine Path has a new album out and it's a depressing lulling affair. But then, that's the true essence of doom metal is it not? 'Emanations' is to be released on May 27th on Relapse Records. Upon listening, time truly slows down. Serpentine Path draws you in and then slowly smothers the life out of you. From the slow and laborious "Essence of Heresy" to the crushing weight of "Torment", Serpentine Path is the banner-man for doom metal. 'Emanations' is just heavy and oppressive. It's a slow trod through bleak and darkness. 'Emanations' sucks the life and joy from the room and leaves you staring off into space. "Treacherous Waters" is another track that just drowns you. Listening to "Treacherous Waters" offers you little hope of escape. The song coalesces in the deeper reaches of your body and the blackness grows to inhabit every part of you. As a doom album 'Emanations' is perfect. Serpentine Path - Emanations Get it Here.
Heretique De Non Existentia Dei Via Nocturna Release: 26 March 2016
This is kinda happy to be death metal. It's, dare I say, jaunty! Listening to the tracks from Heretique's De Non Existentia Dei, make me happy. I have a loopy grin on my face and I'm banging my head along with the music. To be sure, De Non Existentia Dei is a heavy album. It's a veritable wall of sound. The vocals are Mojo Jojo worthy. But the tempo and timber fill me with glee! The songs are solid and concise. Sometimes they end before I want them to and I have to play them over again! This is the most awesome death black metal album. For those who are new to the genre or are curious, definitely start here with Heretique's De Non Existentia Dei. It's gobsmackingly done and done well. It's interesting and fun. It' oozes a delicious evil.

Turn on. Tune in. Drop out. That's how I feel listening to Klechdy by Thy Worshiper. It's ethereal and moving. The music totally draws you in. It's hard to put Klechdy into a category because so much of the compositions overlap in genre. The drumming can be tribal. The vocals can be folksy. The guitars have shades of avant garde, progressive, and Viking folk. There is no way to get bored listening to Klechdy. Thy Worshiper paints stunning visuals with music. Listening to Klechdy is a fully immersive musical experience.
