Endless Dismal Moan - Endless Dismal Moan (2004)

Sickly, unsettling sounds from this Japanese solo project. I think of Endless Dismal Moan as the Japanese Xasthur -- dissonant, blown out guitars, ghoulish rasps, and drum machine that lends the whole thing a homemade, highly personal sound. Also, the drums are often programmed at insane, inhuman tempos, because if you're gonna have a drum machine, why subject it to human constraints? The highly disturbing quality of the music is compounded by the fact that Chaos 9, the creator of this project, committed suicide by gunshot in 2008.

  1. Hey, just wanted to drop a line and thank you for this awesome blog! I was looking to dip my toe into funereal doom and depressive black metal and your blog has helped immensely. FYI, I'm from Portland as well. Keep up the good work!
