Here we are. It’s Friday. Yeahhhhhhhh. It means that the weekend is looking at us and it’s #BAZFriday. Lovely.

So, let me start with my recos for all of you, lovers of the underground.

Band: Akhlys

Country: USA
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording
Style: Black Metal
Time playing: 46:05
Cover/Music: 8/10 – 8/10

Band: Kammarheit
Title: Thronal
Label: Cyclic Law
Release date: 21 December 2020
Country: Sweden
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording
Style: Dark Ambient
Time playing: 44:01

Band: Undergang
Title: Aldrig i livet
Label: Dark Descent Records / Me Saco Un Ojo Records / Extremely Rotten Productions
Release date: 04 December 2020
Country: Denmark
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording
Style: Death Metal
Time playing: 36:09
Cover/Music: 8/10 – 8/10
Details: Since 2009 (date of the first release) this band is delivering old school Death Metal. In my opinion one of the best bands doing it. It’s sick, it’s cavernous, it’s rotten, it’s Undergang.

Band: Demoniac
Title: So It Goes

From my private collection…

Band: Atropos (R.I.P.)
Title: Créature chthonienne
Label: Oupiric Productions (R.I.P.)
Release date: 2002
Country: France
Format reviewed: Tape
Style: Melodic Black Metal
Time playing: 42:27
Cover/Music: 5/10 – 7/10
Details: Originally released in 2001 by Horsnorm (unknown status), I have the tape version released by the Russian label Oupiric Productions. This band is nothing exceptional, I have to admit it, but I like to listen to them and the Black Metal made that time.

Band: Celestia (R.I.P.)
Title: Delhÿs-Cätess
Label: Apparitia Recordings
Release date: 08 March 2007
Country: France
Format reviewed: Tape

And now… A classic…

Band: Exodus

Don’t forget to support the bands and labels.

Till next #BAZFriday
