More and more bands are pulling from the atonal chaos set in motion by bands like Portal and Deathspell Omega, and I couldn’t be happier. If it’s dark, noisey, and technical, we’re all about it. Thantifaxath are a band cut from the same cloth as the aforementioned progenitors, right down to the anonymous mystique the three-piece carries. From under their robes, this group weaves a unique spin on the atmospheric black metal trend, building off genre cliches and turning them on their head in a fashion not dissimilar to last year’s Altar of Plagues swansong Teethed Glory and Injury.

epistasis

The next in line for ‘reasons why Invisible Oranges is still one of the best metal blogs around, even post-Cosmo Lee’ is their introduction of Epistasis, that described them as ‘catchy while weirding the hell out, decidedly pretty while venturing into atonal territory’. How could you possibly not want to hear that?

It’s easy to say that we miss our friend Arthur Von Nagel as the frontman/bassist of San Francisco-based Cormorant, but we’d be remiss if we weren’t optimistic about the new 8-track endeavor, Earth Diver, now featuring Marcus Luscombe in Von Nagel’s place.

alaya-thrones

We’ve been waiting for the debut album from Alaya for nearly two years. Setbacks in mixing and production helped put a year and a half between the release of the album’s first single ‘Inside‘ and the album’s final release, which is a pretty staggering gap.
