EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Stream A New Song From A Constant Knowledge of Death!

For folks who lament the decline of post metal, we seem to be getting a lot of great recommendations lately. A Constant Knowledge of Death are one of those examples, mixing expansive and delicate silences with furious peaks that draw on black and post metal for their structure. The band are connected to a different project, Vivid Illusion, which we had covered last yer. Quite like that project, A Constant Knowledge of Death are all about oppressiveness and its release, the highs and lows that emotional music an invoke. To create these, they utilize not only the staple rise/fall/rise structure of post metal but also spoken word, electronics, samples and more. The group are gearing up for Vol. II Organic Emotions, coming on September 30th and we’re beyond excited to be premiering the first single from the album. Head on below to check it out!

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Hear A Brand New Song From Veilburner!

Telepathy’s “Hiraeth” Is A Masterclass In Post-Metal’s Infinite Possibilities

If you look through the article we wrote on this sub-genre a while ago, you’ll find hiraeth in nearly all of the examples we listed there. One of those examples is what brought us here today. Telepathy’s follow up to 12 Areas. is one of the releases these two writers have been most anticipating. Lo and behold, just short of a European tour which Heavy Blog is proud to sponsor, the band have released “Hiraeth” and an amazing video to match it. Unsurprisingly, like much of their former work, it’s a chilling, dark and moving addition to the annals of post-metal. By returning again and again to this elusive feeling of bereavement, by strumming the strings of this particular, morose heart, Telepathy use the tools of post-metal in a convincing and original way.
