Drudkh - A Furrow Cut Short (2015)


Tracklisting

1. Cursed Sons I
2. Cursed Sons II
3. To the Epoch of Unbowed Poets
4. Dishonour I
5. Dishonour II
6. Till Foreign Ground Shall Cover Eyes
7. Embers

From a Fan
At risk of sounding like a douchey metal elitist, it bears being said: To really fall in love with Drudkh, you have to love their body of work as a whole and not by one, or two, or even three albums. You really have to dig the fuck in. However, for the sake of the new school of fans, A Furrow Cut Short 
really embodies the esprit de corps that all the old school fans fell in love with. The group's tenth release has everything any Drudkh fan loves, needs and deserves; it's moody, it's raw, it's atmospheric and makes you want to ride into the sunset with your babushka's horse. Flower crown and all. I'd even say Furrow tips an ever-so-slight nod to the Hate Forest sound.

Points of Interest
"Cursed Sons I & II" are traditional Drudkh. I'd say the best of II begins around 5:12. Golden guitar work.

"To the Epoch of Unbowed Poets" opens with the most epic of atmospheric blast beats, and is very much my favorite track on this album, and is very much what I fell in love with Drudkh for. (clicky the linky)

Conclusion
What can I say? Furrows does not disappoint, and it's another happy and fitting addition to the Drudkh monolith. It does not quite stand against our star child Forgotten Legends (which isn't saying much, as it is unsurmountable perfection and hard to top), but probably stands shoulder to shoulder with our handsome Blood in Our Wells.

Luckily for us, Seasons of Mist have been super cool about uploading content on youtube, so there's no excuse not to give their ENTIRE DISCOGRAPHY A LISTEN. CAUSE IT'S THERE.

*facepalm*

So Wyatt, Dom and I collectively abandoned this blog in 2008 because it was around that time that Megaupload, Mediafire, Rapidshare, etc. started really cracking down on piracy. At first the usual "link is dead" scenario was happening, then we actually got a few warnings from Google, and eventually about 100+ posts that had links to downloads were saved as drafts and effectively removed from the blog. It's sad, I know, but there are still places on the internet where people share music, you just have to know where to look.

So I think I'll start posting here again if only because I miss having a blog. I had a tumblr for a while, and a wordpress, but Blogger is very simple and it's content can be exported/transferred to most CMS' anyway.

Soooo yeah. Hi! I'm gonna be weeding through previous posts and editing away stupid teenage idiocy because I plan on posting reviews (amogst other things) and I know that some of the shit I've previously posted will be a cancer to my credibility. Lol.

Okay, done for now. Enjoy this photo of your loving admin.

Ultimate Warriors.

Short write up here, just something I uploaded for someone. The Ultimate Warriors were an obscure first or second wave power violence band. I think first. They used to wear Mexican wrestling masks while performing so you know they're good.
The Ultimate Warriors - Self-titled

What's that, I uploaded something?

Weird, I know. This time it's Kill The Client, grindcore in the vein of Birdflesh. They were featured on This Comp Kills Fascists, but if I recall correctly they sound totally different on that than they do here. Both good of course. But whatever.

Dead Stare For Life

No. Fucking. Comment. Seriously the best hardcore/powerviolence band of all time. So much malice is present in the vocals despite them being fairly decipherable. The music is played at blisteringly fast pace, and the live tracks seem even faster. If that's possible. This is their discography lp, which contains the two 7"s the demo and some live tracks. They didn't put out much but damn were they good. Eric Wood went on to sing for Man Is The Bastard, who are also very badass. Check check check it.

No Comment - Discography
Stolen link, and if someone knows where I could get a physical copy of this I would be very grateful.

August 02, 2008

Does anyone actually check this?

I mean I've got a bunch of shit that I could upload, but there doesn't seem to be a reason. Maybe when I look in a month again if there's a comment I'll upload it.

Some of the best shit I've heard in a while.

So those of you that know me, know that I blow my load consistently over Witchcraft. Well this is Norrsken, the band that Magnus played in before Witchcraft and goddamn is it full of win. The first two tracks are pretty reminiscent of Flower Travelling Band, whom I also spew my load over. Download nao.

Norrsken - Discography
Contains their Hokus Pokus 7", Armageddon single and two covers from compilations, one being Trouble and the other Blue Cheer.

We All Inherit The Moon.

Here's just a pretty chill post-rock band that added me the other day. All of these tracks are available on their myspace for download, so I just took the liberty of putting them in a rar file to help spread the word. I haven't listened to it much, but I liked what I had heard. Either way worth a listen.
We All Inherit The Moon - S/T 5 Song Mini LP

They have some pretty cool shirts if you check the myspace. Search it yourself, I'm lazy.

Live from the riff-filled land.

Two live albums here. If you're unfamiliar with Sleep, kill yourself. The best Sabbath never wrote. Then we've got Om, who were formed from Sleep's rhythm section after they disbanded.

Sleep - Live From Gilman St.
If you don't see the irony here, educate yourself.

Om - Live At Jerusalem
Rise aviator, sun will follow.

Requests.

Phobia - Grind Your Fucking Head In
I'm not the biggest Phobia fan, they're pretty standard grind, not bad by any means.

World Burns to Death - Totalitarian Sodomy
Crust/D-beat. I guess some guy's from Severed Head Of State, so that's pretty cool.

Horna - Haudankylmyyden Mailla
Rapidgay, sorry. I've no idea what genre this is either.

For glory comrades.

Communism is the theme of this album, and the title is a mouthful. I'm not a huge fan of post-punk, in fact Killdozer and Joy Division are pretty much it for me. I always described this album as a sort of Cathedral meets The Pixies vibe. The vocals are this really strange growly rasp, I dunno, kind of reminiscient of Lee Dorrian at times. Entertaining album through and through.
Killdozer - Uncompromising War On Art Under The Dictatorship Of The Proletariat

Heavy shit right hurr.

What we have here is a live album by none other than Miles Davis. I'm a jazzfag, get over it. On this recording, he had what many consider to be the pinnacle of his live performing band. Clocking in at over an hour and a half this is no light shit. This is heavy in a different sense of the word.

Miles Davis - Dark Magus
Part 1
Part 2
It's zshare so don't complain.

Moar doom.

First up we have It Is I. Featuring Thomas Choi of Asbestosdeath, Noothgrush, and Operator Generator among others. This alone should convince you it's good. Industrial sludge doom, coupled with a fantastic rhythm section and some solos that you'd swear were being played by Matt Pike during his Sleep days.
It Is I - Evolve

Next up is Ogre. Featuring two members of the cult doom band Blood Farmers should give you a good idea of what to look for. The band likes to describe themselves as proto-doom. I'd say that's a good moniker, or doom rock. Either way this album consists of one 37 minute track divided into 11 movements. It tells the story of mankind's destruction at the hands of itself and the rise of the dog-king and their eventual redemption at the hands of Collosus. Epic, I know.
Ogre - Plague Of The Planet

October Falls - Tuoni

By request. It's a good album, though neofolk can get old fast. Still good chill out muzak.

Municipal Waste EP

Upped for a friend, figured I'd post it. Don't remember if I posted it before, but whatever,
It's horribly short, but definitely worth a listen, since pre-Waste em All, they were basically a punk band on steroids. Sorta.
But yeah. linx

Slo Burn

Slo Burn was John Garcia's first post-Kyuss project and featured a bunch of no-name musicians who surprisingly did a really fucking good job. Unfortunately they only released an ep and a demo. Here are both as well as a live track.

Legitist broskiiiiiiiiii.

So I'm posting shit now I guess. Expect things you probably won't like.

Boards Of Canada - Music Has The Right To Children
I'm not good with categorizing electronica. All that edm, blah blah shit is wasted on me. But I do know that this is one of those most transient, beautiful and soothing albums I've ever listened to.

Brian Eno - Ambient 1: Music For Airports
Ambient. Brian Eno is known by many to be the father of ambient music. This album came out in 1978, and never ceases to amaze me. The state of mind it can create is surprising, considering as Brian Eno said, "Ambient Music must be able to accommodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular; it must be as ignorable as it is interesting."

Macabre Omen - The Ancient Returns


Hellenic and war-themed black/death metal from Greece. Awesome album. Intertwining vocal styles (high-pitched and spoken word or singing), great riffs, and just all around great atmosphere. All music done by Alexandros (except for session musicians), who's also in the black metal band The One. Not my upload.

Paysage d'Hiver - Paysage d'Hiver


Translating to "landscapes of winter" in French, Paysage d'Hiver is the project of one Tobias Möckl. Most of his work is ambient or distant black metal. This release is purely black metal, and is my favorite of his. The first song has some amazing musical juxtapositions. Excellent stuff if you can get past the production and song lengths. Get it.

1. Welt Aus Eis
2. Gefrorener Atem
3. Der Weg

Mediafire
On the version I uploaded, tracks 2 and 3 are merged together.

Mirkwood - Journey's End


Atmospheric black metal from the United States that has lyrical themes of... SUPRISE! Tolkien. It's pretty good stuff.

1. Journey's End
2. Winter Path
3. Through Endless Forests

Tsjuder - Demonic Possession



This is actually my favourite Tsjuder album, not DNH. Bloodshedding Horror makes me happy in the anus.

1. Eriphion Epistates
2. Demoner av Satans Rike

4. Bloodshedding Horror
5. Deathwish
6. A Twisted Mind

8. Primeval Fear

Nordlicht - Nebelmeer


Very cold, distant, and atmospheric black metal from Switzerland. Nimosh (man behind the project) runs Kunsthall Produktionen with Wintherr from Paysage d'Hiver, so it's a must have. Once you get past the production, it's an excellent piece of work.

1. Interlude I
2. Winterweg
3. Interlude II
4. Nebelhall
5. Interlude III
6. Herbstrot
7. Interlude IV
8. Nebelherr
