xKollix, Chao is interesting.
KeepScreaming, I received my Askeregn tape yesterday. I listened to it twice so far and I believe it's a grower. I find it very interesting, duder manages to create a great atmosphere through his songs and THOSE VOCALS!! Cool.
Still waiting on mine, but i'm very intrigued now. Each one of those Fossbrenna bands seems to be a bit different, so i don't know what to expect.
Anyone been paying attention to the CW Productions label? A real favourite of mine putting out very raw, interesting black metal that doesn't quite sound like anything else out there. Most recordings are very lo-fi, but beneath the rehearsal recordings lies some great black metal.
Cirrhus and Furdidurke are the better know on the label and well worth checking out - punkish black metal with a lot of melody. My favourite so far is a tape by a band called Kestrel and is some of the most excellent/odd stuff going...2 full tracks and 3 short organ interludes, reminds me of that majestic Polish sound in places.
Oh, and i'm enjoying all this Icelandic black metal being posted! I think i should mention this one too - http://www.myspace.com/grimmd
These 3 tracks seeing the light of day soon and i hear more songs are to be recorded this winter.
*ahem* alright Kolli?
