Fell Voices - Fell Voices (2009)

Full-length, Human Resources
September, 2009

Genre: Atmospheric Black Metal
Region: USA

Fell Voices is something else. Really, they're the only band that comes close to scratching my Weakling itch outside of Dispirit at the moment. Very powerful atmosphere with elements of drone and doom interspersed throughout.

Two long, untitled tracks in 320. Don't sleep on them like I did.

Skagos / Panopticon - Split (2010)

Split, Flesner Records
October 1st, 2010

Genre: Atmospheric Black Metal
Region: Canada/USA

Canadian act Skagos continue to create a unique sound within the genre. Two 10 minute + tracks from them here. Anamnesis II: A Dry, Sterile Thunder, Without Rain has some excellent surprises that work extremely well and show they are truly something apart from acts like Wolves in the Throne Room.

Panopticon's anarchist twist on the genre is present here as well, three tracks which will most likely appear on his next album. All circling around 8 minutes each and full of excellent, memorable riffs, samples and vocals. In 320.

Rogue Sounds - Transmission [2010/320]

I was actually asked directly by the band to post this on here, and thus here it is. I have listened to it myself and it is a very solid record. In fact, it's one of my favourite EP's this year. It might be interesting to know, the album was produced by Ed Brooks, who has worked with Russian Circles and Fall of Troy, previously. I definitely recommend this to Post-Rock/Post-Metal fans.

Artist: Rogue Sounds
Album: Transmission (EP)
Release Year: 2010
Genre: Post-Rock

1. Decibel
2. Virtue
3. Vice
4. Transmission
