Review: Saagar – Vacuidad

saagarSometimes when someone is inspired to create, the art that is birthed from this inspiration has so much depth and creativity driven from that which inspired it that those who enjoy the previous works of art will obviously enjoy the new art. This is true especially within metal, ambient and dungeon synth genres as you will take something that stands out from the rest and with it, will spawn hundreds of others that will try to copy that sounds. Saagar’s sound is derived from two other projects as well as some outside influences which involve themes such as negative emotions, death, emptiness, desolation, astral projections and the dark side of nature and life in general.

Quick Reviews: Swine Overlord, Arkodaemik, Curseworship & Asmodey

swine overlordSwine Overlord’s debut album “Parables of Umbral Transcendence” is within the vein of Malodorous, Infant Annihilator and Splattered Entrails. Just that nasty brutal death metal that sounded like it was recorded in a buddies bedroom. Nasty production but it adds to the overall effect of the disgusting and sinister vibe these guys put out. Filled with drum groove, slam riffs and gutturals that would melt the face off of your dear ol grandma. 4 out of 5

Quick Reviews: Father Murphy, Anti Ritual, Cannabis Corpse/Ghoul Split & Graves At Sea/Sourvein

father murphyFather Murphy – “Pain Is On Our Side Now”. I wasn’t sure if I was going to review this or not, the description is confusing, the music is weird and I believe this belongs in /r/awkwardboner. I’ll label this as drone though and tell you that this is a must listen. It’s very experimental, very random and very off putting. A weird & terrifyingly unique experience. 3.5 out of 5

A new genre…well something almost entirely new. Agarttha will move your soul if you give it a chance, and boy should you give it a chance.
