Kvlt Kolvmn // July 2019

I had my cursor hovering over the “Purchase” button for tickets to The Dark Knight Rises the night of the Century Aurora shooting. I grew up going to that theater, as it was about ten minutes away from my childhood home. I decided not to purchase them an hour before…

Kvlt Kolvmn // June 2019

Welcome to Kvlt Kolvmn. I’ll kick off this month’s festivities by stating with relative certainty that I’ve never written in one place about so many albums released in one month that I genuinely feel are going to show up on my yearly top 25. Each and every one of this…

Kvlt Kolvmn – May 2019

Welcome to Kvlt Kolvmn, D R A M A Edition. Whoa boy. Yeah. It’s been a month. Not only were we gifted some absolutely incredible black metal releases in what’s already been a banner year, but we also get enough craziness to fill a tabloid. It’s great. It’s terrible. It’s…

Kvlt Kolvmn – April 2019

Welcome to Kvlt Kolvmn. Spring has sprung, but the very last vestiges of our dearly beloved winter cling like icy hands to the soil. My home state is preparing itself for a very late snow storm over the next few days, which fills my deadened heart with something akin to…

Kvlt Kolvmn – February 2019

February is such a dump of a month. It’s snowed well over a foot in the last two weeks in my home state, and we’ve nothing to show for it but mud splatter, sidewalks covered in ice left by feckless neighbors, and frigid temperatures. February is the microcosm of all…

Kvlt Kolvmn // January 2019

There are, in my mind, two months in the standard calendar year that are the ripest for black metal: January and February. The early winter months, stuffed with family gatherings and holiday cheer, make it somewhat difficult for me to truly bask in the shadows cast by metal’s most sinister…

Kvlt Kolvmn // December 2018

Welcome to the last edition of Kvlt Kolvmn for the year 2018. I honestly debated whether or not to run this column for December, given that our year-end lists have recently been posted and the holiday season is generally a bear on schedules. But I couldn’t let the releases below…

Kvlt Kolvmn – October 2018

Maybe it’s the change in the weather, or the average day falling into an early, seemingly perpetual night. Perhaps it’s the trees, left barren and naked against the pale sky. Or it could be my own sense of depleted, frustrated exhaustion as the end of the year draws nigh. Regardless…

Kvlt Kolvmn – September 2018

September was a damn good month for all things frostbitten and evil. Showcasing the genre’s insane breadth of style and influence more than in any month in recent memory, black metal showed up in a big way as the multi-faceted beast we’ve always known it was. The releases featured here are in majority some of our favorite of the year, and we hope you will share that sentiment. So feast your eyes and ears on the ridiculous bounty that was the month in black metal.
