Metal and Hardcore 2012: Eschatology Gone Wild
This record (pictured above) marked Nachtmystium's return to the chilly restraint of black metal after a period of complexity and exploration. With a crude oil heart and pitiless infrared gaze, raw black metal structures are traded for corroded steel. Survival Strategy: Unplug and live off the grid when the machines rise up.
Old Man Gloom
The experimental doom-sludge group have released a tribute to negation with No. This pinnacle of nihilism blights and crawls, a tribute to the aesthetic of disgust. Survival strategy: Just drink the cyanide Kool-Aid.
Blood for the Master
Lasciviously combining the diabolic malevolence of black metal and the snarling aggression of death. They'd be ideal for playing an underground club in Sodom. Survival strategy: Stock up on holy water, practice your Latin, and dig out the crucifix.
No Absolutes in Human Suffering
(Black Market Activities)
This is a political album for a dystopian future that has already arrived, shrieking at hypocrisy. Survival strategy: Carry your "the end is nigh" sign with pride.
Dragged Into Sunlight
They might just be a band of serial killers who make music instead of murder. Widowmaker is the aural equivalent of a lampshade made from human skin. Survival Strategy: Run.
