Lord Mantis – Death Mask

I namedropped the new Lord Mantis record in my Coffinworm review, so I figured I should probably say a few words about it.  Oppressive, abrasive, blacked…

Castevet – Obsian

From the black metal roar of “The Tower” to the melancholic beauty of “The Seat of Severence”, Obsian is a complex and flowing work. As elaborate as it can be, it’s simple in how it forces the basest of human emotion to rise to the surface and dominate the experience. It’s a masterwork that continues to reveal the layers of its bleakness with warmth rather than cold.
