KZOHH - IAOLTDOTAD (2014)

Unorthodox, experimental Ukranian black metal. Dramatic keyboards and torturous screams hang over a hypnotic maelstrom of glacial guitars and simple, tight drumming, plus some bizarre, inspired stylistic turns. Not that the first two songs are fully traditional black metal, but things don't really get weird 'til the dark jazz breakdown -- complete with sax and piano -- on "To Walk in Blood... to Step a Blood". It's the first of three like it on the album. Surprised this record didn't get more attention.

Track listing:
1. Onward to Bones Hollow Yawn... (Intro)
2. Roaming Depthwards
3. To Walk in Blood... to Step a Blood
4. ... They Wipped by Fear
5. Purification Path
6. ... And Shadowed Blackness Darker
7. Inhaled Ash of Life, the Dust of Time and Death (Outro)

Black star domination

    1. Yep, good point. There's a pretty solid ceiling for No Colours bands.
