Just a couple of quick notes before I sign off for today:
I’ve already said my piece (here) about Four Phantoms, the new album by Seattle’s Bell Witch. In a nutshell:
Four Phantoms will dismantle your defenses, reduce your bulwarks against the bad days to a pool of molten slag, leave your vulnerabilities exposed, and touch those raw places you try to hide. How it can do this and yet leave you feeling transcendent is a wondrous mystery.
Four Phantoms is one of a kind, a towering achievement in the landscape of doom, and one of 2015′s best albums in any genre.
The whole album is now streaming, as of today, at this location — I encourage you to listen (and to order it here if you enjoy it):
Ukraine’s Drudkh also have a new album that began streaming today, the name of which is A Furrow Cut Short. We haven’t managed to review the album yet, but it’s really excellent — and you can listen to it via the link below. The album can be acquired from Season of Mist at this location.
The new Bell Witch is insane, thanks for posting. Monolord’s new album stream is also up http://noisey.vice.com/blog/meet-your-maker-with-monolords-doom-sludge-destroyer-vaenir
Just finished listening to Drudkh, and was listening to Bell Witch as I found this. Both absolutely fantastic albums (as is Monolord’s album mentioned in the comment above, which was last night’s soundtrack).
two opposable thumbs up for the new Bell Witch 🙂
