(Doctor, I now have three of these
ugly bumps in my music collection. Am I becoming a fan or is there still hope?)

Stijn Van Hees It's Alkerdeel, it's noisy, filthy, evil,abrasive, unconventional and well worth your time because dashes of genius and focused musicianship do shine occasionally throught the madness.

Megapsychoticone This is definitely more traditional B/M than the compilation released in 2014 with Gnaw Their Tongues. It is still full of self-hate and sonic whirlwinds of violence that engulf the listener. The song is a serious progression of destruction that builds exponentially as the listener gets nearer to the end of the tune.

Essential for fans of Darkthrone, Burning Witch, Beherit and why not, Mount Eerie … as well as other practitioners of grim buzz and noise. ... more

Track Name: SHSRR
Vibrational energies
Resonating with infinite others
One expanding soul
A Journey to the higher masters
Enlightenment of the fool.
Open the chakra's.
Energy flowing from root to crown,
The mind's doors are
channeling down river
to the oracle's howl.
