Marblebog - Csendhajnal (2004)

Chill-inducing Hungarian black metal. Slow, eerie, raw, and utterly mesmerizing. This is the 2006 reissue, which contains bonus tracks from demos and the like and, as far as most people are concerned, is the definitive version. Another record that came up while I was brainstorming my all-time favorite black metal albums.

Track listing:
1. The Breath of Emptiness
2. A Broken Circle
3. Eternal Silence Within
4. The Dawn of Annihilation
5. Dissolution
6. Fullmoon Over the Mountains of Bukk
7. Possessed by Me
8. Eneh's Descendents
9. Archaic Woods
10. Iunhum
11. Grimlust for Decay
12. Hatefullmoon

It flows forever
Emanates and withdraws forever

Vast (2014)


  1. I saw these guys in Chicago 8 or 9 years ago. Was super stoked, especially since the backing band was essentially Hunok and Nyktalgia, but holy shit were they bad. That being said, they played "I Am The Forestheart" and it was great. Plus, Gabor played the "I Am the Black Wizards" riff between songs to hype the crowd up. ha!

  2. Maybe kinda sorta just-a-lil looking forward to that all-time list. (Take your time though, best to come correct with something this cool.)

  3. Marble Bog! A fave! 1 of the G.O.A.Ts for sure!
