Moon "Clavicula Nox"

To my surprise, today I discovered this release brought by one of my favorite black metal acts, the australian one man band, Moon. Don't know if there's going to be a physical edition of this yet, there isn't much information about it floating around. I only know that the last three tracks featured here, are the same tracks that appear on the Moon/Xerbitter split. On "Clavicula Nox" Miasmyr gifts us with it's mystical and unique atmospheric black metal, filled with mesmerizing notes that intoxicate the air like, for example, "Oration As Vessel Of The Void", one of Moon's most amazing tracks featured here. It's on the Bandcamp as "name your price" but as you know, the continuous support for great artists like Moon is never enough. Highly recommended.

Vuimago "Vurahva"

Raw and primitive black metal coming from the Netherlands. Vuimago's "Vurahva" introduces a very abrasive and thick wall of noise coming out from the harsh guitar sound, that cuts through a very primitive and DIY kind of production. The vocals are just out of this world as the drum makes its appearance in a very camouflaged way in the midst of the recording. According to the info on Bandcamp, "Vurahva" was recorded on the 29th of January 2011 and mixed and mastered during August 2014. All material improvised and recorded in one take. "Vurahva" will be released on cassette at the end of 2014 by Nebular Carcoma Records. Powerful and good stuff.
