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.
