Something very nasty must happen to leave behind my admiration for the German black metal scene of the later years and Infestus are not here to serve this cause. Being a one-man band nowadays, Andras takes care of everything and the third full-length is reality. E x | I s t its title and the existential matters keep on breathing through the sullen, grey cover artwork which prepares the listener in the most appropriate way.

Rating: 9 With the possible exception of Negative Plane's recent one this is easily the best BM record of the year so far.

  Agreed for the most part, this and Negative Plane's latest are excellent releases, but my personal tastes are drawn more to Woods of Desolation and Deafheaven.

Dort, wo das alte Böse ruht is a great black metal album as well. 2011 is not too shabby thus far.

Deafheaven and Woods are a little too effusive for me to love, too heavy on the melody and not enough concentration on a strong, unique sound (or at least one that doesn't pander so much to that blackgaze sound anyway). Still nice stuff though. If you haven't yet get round to listening to that Verwüstung record, I reckon it's right up your proverbial alley.

Haven't yet done so, but I plan on hearing it in its entirety within the next week.

While I'd still take WoD and Deafheaven as my top 2 "blackgaze" albums of the year, Beyond the Watercolor... is an awesome album. Very...ethereal, and has a strong "White EP vibe".

And on a separate but annoying note this album will never see itself mentioned on any lists due to it's annoying album title construction. Anyway, glad you liked it.

Rating: 9 I feel sad giving this such belated praise, but returned to down spiral personification whilst getting drunk and remember just what a quality album this truly is. Sad it's name alone removed much of its praise opportunity, but a truly great album given such an impreassive 2014 followup
