Thy Catafalque - Sublunary Tragedies (1999)

Chaotic, cacophonous, avant-garde industrial black metal. Canned strings, programmed drums, metal-zone guitars, walls of industrial noise, vocals drenched in distortion and at times pitchshifted, and some moments of woozy beauty. I'm always a fan of programming your drum machine to play blastbeats faster than humanly possible, which is exactly what they do on the album-opening "Erdgeist", so bonus points for that.

Track listing:
1. Erdgeist
2. Ashesdance
3. Triumph Lightless
4. Come Lateautumn Rains
5. Via Millennia
6. Rota Mundi
7. Static Continuance

These are the clouds

  1. Incredible Blog. It is a pity I have just discovered it. Variety and good taste is what really matters in here. I found a couple of old gems (and some not so old) and currently enjoying them. Thanks for posting these incredible records.
