Metal Storm user Oaken (or Oaken Bough as he styles himself on Bandcamp) brings us his debut stab at atmospheric/ambient black metal. Now, without wishing to embarrass anyone, we have all seen and heard the results of a previous effort by a fresh-faced and youthful member of the MS community. Let me assuage any fears of a repeat performance with M-81.

  Do you plan physical copies?

  Putting the condition of having a review to make more music is kind of absurd (only my opinion of course)...
Creating music would probably be more suiting just for fun or pleasure (or money if they want to make a living out of it).

Anyway, as I said on the other thread, I think there is some potential with it's ambient bm passages.

I did one for me, but it's amateur-ish and done at home. I might make some more, but if I do, it's quite impossible to distribute it... You know what's going on in here.

Yeah, you're probably right. I was just kidding, as I've already decided on the album titles and the new elements I'm going to use.
And I'm actually doing it for just fun, and I would never sell music (this is only a recreational career, and I won't count on it for a living).
Thanks for the positive feedback.

This time a thousand.

It was decent, I didn't get engulfed in places though, idk, sometiems it just didn't click with me.

about a 6.5/7 for now.
