Fuath – I (Scotland, 2016)
Strictly (Atmospheric) Black Metal project by Andy Marshall’s Saor. Even though I think Saor’s music is just great, here Mr. Marshall relies in a land over-flooded by black metal clichés and old-fashioned solutions. In my humblest opinion there’s nothing so impressive here to be glorified.
Camel of Doom – Terrestrial (UK, 2016)
Camel of Doom, and you can tell it by the name, are a solid evidence of progressive doom metal, infused in psychedelic atmospheres. They sound complex and mesmerizing while remaining pretty heavy.
Probably the variety of the vocal styles could be improved a bit, but it’s definitely a record that will please a lot of fans of the genre.
Faunalord – Eternisciencia (Spain, 2016)
Lustre’s fans from all over the world, today’s your day, a new clone of the Swedish master has come!
Oh no, I didn’t mean to sound offensive, actually this album is brilliant. I just wanted to warn you it has a lot to do with the sound of Lustre. If you don’t mind that, well, congratulations if you’ve just discovered an amazing gem of ambient/atmospheric black metal! Deeply hypnotic.
Cryostasium / Thor Maillet – CTM3 (USA, 2016)
A disturbing-noisy winter landscape saturated with twisted synthetic sounds.
It’ll make you feel like you abused LSD.
