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

Oddland - Origin
Progressive metal

In a year with many strong prog releases, one of the outsiders is Oddland's Origin. A tinge of Pain Of Salvation's Daniel Gildenlöw on the vocals can only be a good thing, and the technical prowess adds to the melodic nuances of the music. Edgy, powerful and masterfully heavy, the Finns carve their own path with this new album. Seemingly accessible, Origin reveals exceptional layers throughout.

Full album on Bandcamp.
