Yellow Eyes​/​Monvment "Split"

I was really caught by surprise when i saw the announcement of this split tape between my beloved Yellow Eyes, who last year released a masterpiece of what we might call a modern-avant-gard-new-wave of usbm, a really impressive debut. And on the other hand we have the mysterious Monvment, a very low-fi and raw black metal act that i know only from their Demo "I". This time both bands go a little bit further with their sound in this split tape. Monvment isn't as raw and low-li as in their demo and I also feel some small changes on Yellow Eyes sound, the voice isn't as strident as heard in "Silence Threads The Evening's Cloth", but the song structure follows the album's lineage. Nonetheless, a split release that is really worthy of your attention. Tape available for purchase here. Follow the link below to hear/buy/download/whatever you want to do with it.
