Woudloper "Woudloper"

Black metal from Utrecht, Netherlands. Now, I've really, really enjoyed this band. It's really the type of thing I'm really into. A very raw, evil and powerful blend of black metal with some hints of filthy doom pouring down all over. I would like to give you some soundwise comparisons for this band but right now I just can't recall any... but fans of the modern faction of black metal bands, like Ash Borer, Paramnesia, Unru and Cepheide will probably enjoy this band a lot. Two great tracks here, simply called "I" and "II" with all instruments placed just perfectly creating a very unique and distinctive atmosphere. Once again, nothing big in terms of sound production, nothing polished at sight. Just simply pure and passionate black metal. Follow the band's moves on Facebook and keep an eye for the tape that is coming out by the hand of Breathe Plastic Records. Support the underground.

Zalmoxis "Demo"

While checking my music out.. I came across this band, Zalmoxis, that according to Bandcamp info, are from Augsburg, Germany. Zalmoxis introduces us two tracks of this grim and eerie atmospheric black metal, recorded as if the sound came out from this ancient and most concealed catacombs you can ever imagine. In general, the atmosphere sounds really great, it really exhales that haunting whiff of cold black metal through that echoing guitar in the back, as well for the drum set (digital?) and the vocals are just harsh and scary enough to do its work. If you're into the most occult, sinister and cold side of black metal, without major productions and artifices, then I strongly you to check this band out.
