2 min read

Hello there,

We arrived in February. Yes, true story. To be honest I didn’t notice that January passed. The time it looks that is flying.

Enjoy my travel into music and I hope you enjoy my recos.

Band: Griffon
Title: De Republica
Label: Les Acteurs de l’Ombre Productions
Release date: 16 February 2024
Country: France
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording

This album is a masterpiece. Amazing damn good album. The fast parts, the ambient parts, the spoken parts with the “mist” of the m music behind it. The changes of tempo. The sang parts, I mean, not the Black Metal voice. I heard this album a lot and every time I heard it my love for it was growing. Check this band.

Band: Hollow Woods
Title: Like Twisted Bones of Fallen Giants
Label: Signal Rex
Release date: 02 February 2024
Country: Finland
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording

The band doesn’t bring anything new to Black Metal. No, that is true, but the Raw Black Metal that the band plays is good and it is worth the time spent while listening to the album, and press the play button again, over and over. Yes. If one album does that to you, it means that is good. Check them.

Band: Vægtløs
Title: Solar Clorex
Label: Too many to mention here (46 labels)
Release date: 02 February 2024
Country: Denmark
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording

This release didn’t go over very well at first listen, so I decided to give it a second chance, a third, a fourth, a fifth and many more… It was well worth it, believe me. It’s a type of release that you appreciate as you play it more times, you can’t evaluate it in just two or three times and get an idea of it. It is necessary to listen and listen many times to “understand”. The band plays what many call Post Black Metal with a small mix or small “dashes” of Hardcore. I liked what I heard. Listen to the band.

See you next week and…

Don’t forget to support the bands and labels.
