23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
23:51 - Czerny Reiter Ashes Against the Grain & Marrow take the cake for me. The Mantle has some sections where it loses steam and gets all too mellow.
23:45 - Overrwatcher The Mantle is beautiful. It's not technical or experimental, it's just a well-crafted album made with simple instruments. I show it to non-metalhead friends and they love it.
23:12 - Netzach 3rd, compared to those albums, The Mantle contains a lot more post-rock and acoustic/folk.
23:10 - Netzach Agalloch are so damn uneven though. The Mantle is fantastic and I also really like Marrow... but as for the rest, meh.
Italian folk metallers Krampus have recently released the first video off their upcoming debut album Survival Of The Fittest. The song "Kronos' Heritage" was the chosen one and you can watch the video below. Survival Of The Fittest will see the light of day on August 24th through NoiseArt Records. More album details, including cover and tracklist, can be found here.
Frontman Filippo Gianotti said about the song: "Kronos' Heritage is a question: what are we going to leave to our children if we destroy their world? Too many times we forget that the injuries of this planet will bleed over our children. There's an African proverb that says: 'this world is not the heritage of our fathers, but a loan of our children."
