Vardan - Lifeless Shadow (2013)

Some truly painful, raw, depressive black metal by way of Italy. Lifeless Shadows is one of three LPs that Vardan released last year, each of which represents a perfectly pure, minimalistic distillation of DBM -- mournful leads repeat endlessly over two-chord riffs, drums plod along like a funeral march, and vocals hang overhead like lost spirits in agony. Still, through all this morbidity, it's nice to be treated to an ESL classic the likes of "Self-Destruction Feelings".

Track listing:
1. Unpurity
2. Spirit Without a Body
3. Self-Destruction Feelings
4. Lifeless Shadows

Living my funeral
