Personal text: lembro-me da última vez que caímos. foi quando as sombras dançavam.
e nós vimos. their coffins in this dirge. elas dançam e caem no gelo.

[translation, by the way, this is something I wrote besides from the obvious "their coffins in this dirge which is anathema influenced]

i remember the last time we fell. the shadows danced. and we saw it.
their coffins in this dirge. they dance and fall on the ice.

Latest Staff pick


Thou - Heathen
Sludgy doom
06.04.2014

Certain albums crush you and suddenly you become so small. Thou's Heathen does that. It is punishing with both slow marching riffs and beautiful harmonies which shine through the devastation. The brief acoustic passages allow you to breathe but the doom is always looming and never fades. There is a splendorous and limpid melodic side to Heathen but more than anything, this album is suffocatingly heavy.
