#ShortOnes LXVIII #UndergroundRecos

2 min read

Hello there,

This week was a week that I felt the need to listen to again some oldies, so the time was divided between new and old releases. And, luckily or not so luckily perhaps, the new releases (few) I heard managed to grab me and the repeat was on many many many times, to be honest.

Check my few recos…

Band: Ophidian Forest
Title: Tales of Doom and Ignorance
Label: Subcontinental Extreme
Release date: 01 July 2022
Country: Netherlands / USA
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording

The progressive Black Metal from this band managed to grab me so well, that this album was on repeat many times. I’m not a big fan of progressive music mixed with Black Metal, but this band did the mix very well and the songs, even if big ones, are amazingly good. You need to check this band.

Band: Xenoglyph
Title: Spiritfraud
Label: Translation Loss Records
Release date: 15 July 2022
Country: USA
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording

The second release and the second album at the same time from this band. It’s a duo Black Metal band and the strand played by this band is related to the psychedelic cosmic vanguard maybe with some proggy touches or should I say Avant-garde? Hmmm… Anyway… The band managed to surprise me and liked them a lot the songs. Is a strong album, at least in my opinion.

Band: Pestilent Hex
Title: The Ashen Abhorrence
Label: Debemur Morti Productions
Release date: 15 July 2022
Country: Finland
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording

This album was a mix of memories in my head and time travels. The songs, the all album, the passages, the voice, the guitar tone, the riffs… I could listen to the some Trimonium with the Melodic Black Metal, it reminds me too Anorexia Nervosa when the Symphonic parts appear, even if Anorexia Nervosa were more related to the Orchestral Symphonic (my opinion), some Sacramentum with some riffs played and the mid-tempo parts reminds me Behexen, this part I don’t why, to be honest, maybe cause of the riff on the second song on the 1:26… More riffs appeared here and there, but… I advice you to check this band.

Don’t forget to support the bands and labels.
