“Silence”, is the new opus from Experimental Black Metal duo NACHTVORST. Blending the dark elements from black, doom, drone and sludge metal with shoegaze and post-rock influences, this album is one of the most impressive to emerge from the underground in the last years.
KENTUCKY is a stunning display of musicianship and political messaging. Panopticon blends technical black metal with stirring labor-first messages and, though this album was released in 2014, it's still harshly relevant. If any genre needs an infusion of leftist messaging, it's black metal, and this album should be seen as one of the standard-bearers. aaroncsimon
