Atmospheric black metal that embraces nature, shining a slowly dying light on a blistering and bleak landscape.
Not Alone it is one of those creeping sleepers that you definitely can play at any point in time with ease.
With An Embarrassment of Riches, The Night Watch has truly proven that good things come to those who wait. The band are incredible musicians and this album showcases their many talents in both music composition and musicianship.
If you want to have your mind blown and kickstart your creative juices, listen to this album.
A welcome ambient companion on long winter nights.
It’s been out a while, and when I first heard it I tweeted that it was A-Sun Amissa’s best work to date. That opinion still holds. Vital listening.
The pick of the three, Part Two: The Endless Not an imperfect but nonetheless decent stab at a late period comeback record.
All in all, it’s a good old fashioned pummelling. It’s music that straddles the line between ecstasy and anguish.
Dark debut from off-kilter Greek punks.
literate, melodic pop songs pulling on a strand that runs from the Velvet Underground through the Modern Lovers and Television, given a uniquely sunlit Australian twist.
Arka Morgana is an ambitious piece of work and the band should be applauded for trying something a bit different. In places, the band create a stunning and wonderful soundscape. In just under an hour the band range from sparse to melodic to frantic and heavy.
Overall a worthwhile addition to the discography for Nocturnal Depression, though for newcomers to the band I’d probably refer them to the earlier touchstone albums.
My metal album of the year. Truly a soundtrack for the end of times.
Devastatingly unique, incredibly hard to describe but ultimately some very special atmospheric post-hardcore/black-metal which keeps on giving with every listen.
Complicated, weird, heavy, tight and uncompromising but also cerebral, curious and accessible. All praise that this record has received already is definitely well deserved.
