Obolus - Demo (2011)

This is a discovery I feel really good about, dark and swirling atmospheric black metal with that grainy lo-fi production we all know and love, accompanied by harrowing distant howls that cut through the shrieking guitars like a sacrificial dagger through butter. I expect nothing but good things from these blokes. The Demo is 2 songs spanning 7 minutes, I suggest you download it and keep them on your radar!

  1. Heyhey, finally made me a blog account thingy, so bye dr.nutcheez. Really liked the two bandcamp tracks, so I'll grab the demo. Fuck the artwork is terrible though. Also, have you tried the new Cruciamentum EP? Good stuff.

  2. Ahoy, I actually don't mind that album art, an ominous severed head traveling through the blackened abyss. kvlt

    I do have the Cruciamentum EP, great as expected.

  3. I'm really digging this one
