Ghoulgotha – The Deathmass Cloak ALBUM REVIEW

I really shouldn’t like this at all. The production is awful, the vocals are awful, the tracks are incredibly samey, and the band often changes tempo and plays random notes for no reason. It has all the makings of a terrible album. Yet for some reason, I listen to this and it’s pleasurable to me. Something about the dissonant, murky and fuzzy atmosphere pleases me, kinda like putting on a warm blanket. I wouldn’t recommend this album to anyone, but I’m certainly going to keep it for future relistens.

Seventh Circle – Not Worth Saving ALBUM REVIEW

This is a 7:48 EP. It’s a little hard to fully judge something with that little information. So this rating is more a result of me saying “this wasn’t unpleasant to listen to and I generally liked it, but it wasn’t absolutely amazing either” rather than any kind of analysis. So um, yeah it managed to not suck for 8 minutes, hooray I guess?

Glaciation – Sur les falaises de marbre ALBUM REVIEW

This is a good album, I want to get that out of the way. The reason for the somewhat low rating is that while I recognize that this is good and I should like it, it does nothing for me. I think it’s the vocals, but I’m not sure exactly sure what about them isn’t appealing to me. I think it’s how un harsh they sound at times. Doesn’t really sound black metal to me, especially since it’s in french, which is like the least dark and evil language ever. I would rate it lower but I really can’t. It has a lot of good elements and a lot of people would probably really like this, but it’s just not for me.
