Flight of Sleipnir, The – Eventide

As I write this review, it’s the second week of June – and so far in these two weeks, we’ve had a rainy, miserable weekend with a HIGH of 38 degrees, we’ve had a 3 day stretch of hot, sticky, humid 90s, and just about everything in-between. I’M OVER IT! Just give me normal summer […]

Kataan – Kataan EP

Back in 2016, New Hampshire’s Vattnet Viskar looked poised to break out in a BIG friggin’ way.

These guys have created a black/post-metal sound at once brutal and transcendent – full of terror, full of grace and yet beyond both. Nadir pulverizes you with […]
