Dead Raven Choir - Their Feet Are The Foraging Ground Of Wolves

Might as well just post another DRC release... to keep this blog's tradition going. "Their feet.." was released by the obscure-but-stilll-well-known-in-obscuro-town Jewelled Antler Collective in their series of 3" CDrs and features three lengthy tracks, mostly centered around huge gaps of silence and slow-slow acoustic guitar progressions plus the usual smolkenish mumblings&ramblings.

Uaral - Lamentos A Poema Muerto

Chile's best. Doom metal meets classic guitar lessons. This album is truly a masterpiece, with lengthy compositions revolving around acoustic passages, piano, chanting and occassional outbursts (in that doomy slow way) of growling and distortion. An amazing listen. This is their second effort. The first album is in a similar vein, but less sophisticated and includes more shitty synth strings.

Letargy Dream - 2

One of my favourites from 2008... and 2009, as this album was released on 29th of December. So obviously I only got it in 2009. Yeah. Three lengthy compositions are presented here, a mix of death-doom, doom, traditional, with psychedelic overtones, great quality, good musicianship. And great lyrics (in Russian). A truly talented band. Get this album from Solitude Productions, it's totally worth it.

Aluk Todolo - Descension

Another release from this band, this time a full-length. The recipe is the same, maybe noisier and harsher. What else is left? Listen and hope they are not nazis or something. They do have a thing for esoterix and all that jazz. But they make amazing music.

Aluk Todolo - 7" EP

Trying to revive this blog... all old links are down, well, bad luck. I might do some re-ups later. Gonna be using mediafire, seems to be the most democratic free upload site to me. So.
Here's a pretty awesome release, Aluk Todolo's first EP. Features two compositions (side A & B, respectively). They are one of those bands, whose music gets labeled krautrock all the time, well, yeah, there's some krautrock here, the songs are driven by a steady motorik beat, they are long and monotonous... yeah. Whatever. They took this so called krautrock (krautrock almost became the new post-metal) and added noise and black metal.
