Smorzando - Smrad (2008)

Here is a demo definitely worth checking out, especially if you dig ambient black metal acts like Lunar Aurora. At first, everything about this tells me I won't like it: Obscure name that makes me feel like a complete dicksmith for saying out loud (turns out it's a technical music term), terrible logo accompanied by a slightly oddball photo that does appear to be eerie but the approach is all wrong! I know, none of this shit really matters when it comes to the actual sound of the music, I'm just critical about the overall aesthetic, and I hope I remain to be.

Moving on, get the fuck on this if you dig lo-fi ambient black metal with an overflowing amount of whispy shrieks and howls buried underneath layers of melodic passages weighed down in a morose forlorn atmosphere.

Grab if you like: Lunar Aurora, De Silence et d'Ombre, Paysage D'Hiver

  2. Yeah, it teeters on humor. The music however doesn't fuck around.
