Thy Dying Light - Forgotten by Time (2018)

UK raw black metal. The guitar work is the star here -- surprisingly thoughtful, melancholic arpeggios and forlorn leads, with moments of dark, punk-like simplicity that remind me of later Rudimentary Peni. Obviously, a project that takes its name from a Judas Iscariot album probably doesn't aim to break any new ground, but as far as straightforward, traditional black metal circa 2018, you're unlikely to find better. Free/name your price via bandcamp.

1. In Northern Mist
2. Fist of Satan
3. Carpathian Mountains
4. Kingdom of Darkness
5. Thy Dying Light

... and desolate darkness
