Hello there,

Another Saturday and another article of #ShortOnes. For me is always a pleasure to be here and write some lines about some releases that I had the pleasure to listen to. Hope you enjoy it

Check my recos…

Band: Hjemsøkt
Title: Mystikk & Mørke
Label: Purity Through Fire
Release date: 22 September 2023
Country: Norway
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording

Hjemsøkt is one more band from the amazing musician Peregrinus from Praefuro, Solus Grief, Unholy Craft, Kvad, and Darkest Bethlehem together with Letaliis. What you can expect here? Well, the cover already says everything, and the bands that he is in too. You will listen to a very damn good release in the Black Metal second wave. You can’t miss this release. Trust me.

Band: Nganga
Title: Phthisis
Label: Independent
Release date: 29 September 2023
Country: USA
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording

I had the pleasure of listening to the second release from this band. After one demo the musicians behind it recorded this EP. Well done, to be honest. With good melodies, and good riffs, the songs managed to grab my attention, but I noticed that is not typical Black Metal. The band is grabbing some influences outside the typical/traditional Black Metal. Some Technical riffs and some progressive touches here and there are present in this EP. You need to check them.

Band: Noctomb
Title: Noctomb
Label: Independent
Release date: 22 September 2023
Country: USA
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording

What it looks like at the beginning of the album is that I would listen to some Death Metal, which changed very fast and the Black Metal raised up and showed the “teeth” and some “icy” riffs. But there was something together there that was not Black Metal. While the album was flowing the influences were appearing. Some sludge and sometimes some Thrash Metal riffs here and there. But the main style is Black Sludge Metal. An interesting release. Check them.

Don’t forget to support the bands and labels.
