Those who know me well enough may be aware of my inclination to lo-fi indie black metal releases that may be crap to over 90% of the music listeners out there, but whatever. Here comes more one of those.

My Firstborn Will Surely Be Blind is a work done by one guy known as D. Smolken, who manages to create an entirely acoustic black metal album consisting of versions of old folk and country songs. If you want it to be able to fit into any metal subgenre, I say black metal, because it's what the vocals as well as the production hints the most. However, when you look closely, there's not much metal here. (After all, what is metal? Distorted guitars? Bass? Drums? If so, I can't hear any).

I honestly have no idea why I listened to the whole album, why I didn't press "stop", and why I didn't hate it. Everything basically screams "HATE ME I'M AWFUL" butI still have no idea if I like it or not. Weird shit.

Agreed, listening now and I don't know what's happening. I think i like it though. Seems like a mental patient would make this.

One of my theories is that my subconscious wants me to like the album so I can buy the cheap CD and Vinyl because I love the artwork.

Go for it, I shamelessly buy a large amount of music just for the cover. At least this music is... unique.
