Vorkuta - Into the Chasms of Lunacy (2007)

Hungarian black metal with depressive leanings. A far cry from the slow, monotonous repetition of many of their DBM ilk, the songs on Into the Chasms of Lunacy are in a near-constant state of subtle change. It's far from scatterbrained, though -- they'll ride the same chord progression for minutes at a time, but the strumming and drum patterns will change every other measure. Just because you're suicidal, doesn't mean you have to be bored, right?

Track listing:
1. Warriors of Vast
2. Gargoyle
3. My Flaming Soul
4. Stardust
5. Vorkuta
6. Within the Fortress of Melancholia

Everything you touch becomes lifeless
Everything you see is altering its form
Everything you hear is silent
