Split, Flesner Records
October 1st, 2010
Genre: Atmospheric Black Metal
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.
