ALBUM REVIEW: Arkona – Age of Capricorn

You’ve got to hand it to Poland’s Arkona, flying their black metal freak flag for over twenty-five years, weathering changes in tastes, technology, and personnel without wandering a smidge from their original Mephistophelian masterplan. Their unique blend of earthy black metal and fancypants symphonic trappings has corrupted many a vulnerable mind over the last couple of decades, leaving their victims humming wicked hooks long after the chaos has ended. The combination of beaut and brute still can’t be slowed by conventional weapons, despite their mix of Polish/ English lyrics and their release history of obscure splits and full-lengths on tiny labels – this is a band fighting the good (bad) fight.

ALBUM REVIEW: 1349 – The Infernal Pathway

 

Norweigian plaguebourne Black Metal act 1349 unforgivingly unveil their new album, The Infernal Pathway (Season Of Mist), a long-awaited LP for 2019. Their centralized coherency has stayed true to its path since 1997. Their construct of aggressive black metal has remained consistent as they’ve impressively demonstrated a threshold of effective releases. 1349 is nothing short of innovative, corpse paint driven, and a cause to exist, ultra-aggressive, that is to put in simpler words, well-executed.

A New AI Has Created a Stream of Non-Stop Death Metal

The future may indeed include robots gaining sentience and taking over humanity, but in the meantime, we’ll settle for some AI generated death metal. According to Engadget, CJ Carr and Zack Zukowski and their Dadabots AI band project uses a recurrent neural network to identify patterns in the music, predict the most common elements and reproduce them. They just launched a YouTube channel to share the results, a never-ending, AI-generated stream of precision death metal. While there is a definitely a blackened death feel and relentless robotic lack of feeling to the songs, it is still pretty damn badass! Check it out! Continue reading

Languish – Unworthy

Supergroups can typically be a swing and miss in my experience, usually due to too many differing styles being mixed together. This is like when mixing too many colors just leaves you with a murky brown. Having said that, Languish is certainly one of the better sounding collectives that make it work with their Blackened Death Metal meets Grindcore approach. Their sophomore efforts are out now under the title Unworthy via Prosthetic Records, and it is mighty impressive. Continue reading
