Bríi - Sem Propósito (2021)

Trance-inducing Brazilian black metal. Two sprawling, psychedelic compositions merging the seemingly disparate worlds of krautrock/Berlin school synth and atmospheric black metal. It should come as a surprise to absolutely no one that this is one of my favorite records of the year so far, but honestly, I went into it expecting atmospheric black metal broken up by synth-y interludes, and was elated to hear an actually complete and seamless fusion. Free/name your price via bandcamp.

Two tracks, titled "A" and "B"

You should also hear:


  1. Goddamn. You were not lying. This is incredible. Parts of it feel like moments in Amplifier Worship by Boris — specifically "Kuruimizu" during the last 10 minutes of Side B. I made sure to order one of the 100 cassettes before that limited pressing runs out. Thank you much for the heads up, and in time for Bandcamp Friday no less!

  2. I second J Liner's comment. This really is incredible!


  3. check out Holoceno by Papangu, another brazilian metal band, They advertise themselves as Zeuhl Sludge Metal, and boy that's not even half of their thing.

  4. Holy shit this is absolutely amazing! One of the best things I've heard in a really long time
