DRUX - Herkeleth (2016)

Primitive, sloppy Swedish black metal. DRUX pulls a surprising amount of depth from a limited musical pallet -- in addition to the many blast-and-tremolo parts, there's pogoing, mid-paced mosh bits, eerie dissonance, and sorrowful melodic sections. And this is a man who knows that a well-placed, delay-heavy "ugh!" can take a song from a 9 to a 10.

Free/name your price via bandcamp. Seven tracks, titled "I" through "VII."
