Going through black metal releases this year is like a fat dude swearing to stop stuffing his face with candy "right after this one last piece". No matter how much you have, there is still more and each one looks equally delicious and tempting. So, instead of being productive with my time, like studying, socializing and... you know, having a life, I'm stuck listening to "just this one more album". Oh, 2011, how you have spoiled us...

Rating: 8 Obscure, yet rewarding. A promising band actually. Great atmospheric black metal.

Indeed. I'm expecting big things in the near future. I just hope they don't start pumping out 10 albums a year like Nadja or Diph'urgqu'rqu'rhur or whatever.

I hope they don't. I'm currently working on a mega atmospheric black metal list (50 albums, I've heard 25 up till now), and I wanna listen to some Njiqahdda but I don't know where to start!

Meh, I love Nadja.

I don't mind one or two releases, but there's like 50 albums. I don't have time to bother checking them out so it's easier to write them off altogether, aside from one or two tracks on Youtube.

Nah, you just pick one and random... you'll enjoy it anyway because theya re awesome.
In a more serious note... Dude, check out Desire In Uneasiness which is quite different from the rest and pretty damn awesome. The real drums they got helped a lot for that album.

Hey hey, it's Troy, not Vezzy. I think you actually write some decent reviews, and I want to hear what you have to say about this.

The quality of my reviews is quite far beyond merely "decent", thank you very much.

Seriously though, thanks for commenting on that. I get the feeling no one even reads my shit anyway, so it's nice to know at least someone does.

The review has been submitted, hopefully it won't get deleted because this is an invisible band.

EDIT: And after 5 days now, it still hasn't reached the proofreader...

I am definitely looking forward to a review of this one. It has been on my playlist for quiet sometime. Curious what others think of their debut. I think AB and Fell Voices are just fantastic underground atmospheric black metal.

The review is up now, feel free to endlessly praise it.

  "In the Midst of Life, We Are in Death" is not a good song to close out your nightly playlist before heading to bed.



I mean >>

I'm flattered. No really, I'm all blushing and whatnot.

Speaking of which, I didn't write a review in quite a while.

Well what can I say, I'm a sucker for this reading thing.
And get snapping I guess, you're not going to college which means you have nothing smarter to do in January

Rating: 8 The most interesting Ash Borer's release so far, without a doubt.

Rating: 8 Revisiting this album after nearly two years, and I have to say I like it more than I remembered. The first track in particular has some really nice riffing going on.

Rating: 9 This is so fucking good. A staple in atmospheric black metal.
