For an interesting take on black metal, you may want to check out a new demo by Endlichkeit. It’s a 2-song cassette that to my ears sounds like nothing but guitar and vocals, and the drums pushed all the way back in the mix like a guide track, but for something on the lo-fi side of things, it’s a nice listen. Not sure where they (or he) are (or is) from, but hopefully more music will be on the way. Wicked screams.
The cassette is available on Fallen Empire Records, a Portland-based label that will be moving to the East Coast very soon so if you’re worried about status of your order, you may want to contact them directly.
