Very cinematic feel; emotionally raw, and drenched in giallo colors. The light behind my eyes blinks red, red, red. I scream--demonically? rationally? Who am I inside this shell of flesh anyway? Let's tear off my face and see....
After a decade of silence, TENEBRAE IN PERPETUUM return from the grave with their fourth opus, “Anorexia Obscura”.
Presenting forty minutes of frozen, mystical Black Metal spread across seven diabolical hymns, “Anorexia Obscura” shines an illuminating light upon the grim atmospheres, equanimous structures and raw dissonance found within. A dark simulacrum comprised of razor-sharp discordant riffing, cold electronics, and an absolutely unhinged vocal performance strides over frigid blast beats provided by Chimsicrin of GORRCH.
With his latest work, founding member and multi-instrumentalist Atratus reveals black visions of demented afflictions of mind and soul, of inhuman experiments amidst cold silicon and sharp steel tools. Primeval in spirit but with practiced precision, “Anorexia Obscura” is a new pinnacle of genius for TENEBRAE IN PERPETUUM.

Deathspell Omega has been lauded for what seems like ages now however I didn't personally listen to them much at all until after this release, instead preferring to stick to more traditional "orthodox" BM..
Long story short I'm forever grateful to our Dark Lord that I decided to expand my horizons because this as well as every other album in DSO's catalog is an absolute masterpiece and every fan of extreme metal music(not just Black Metal) owes it to themselves to check them out.
The Furnaces of Palingenesia is stunningly innovative how it transforms what appears to be harsh disconnected noise into melodic beauty through weaving indecipherable and indistinguishable dissonant threads together into a tapestry of melodic perfection that checks all the right boxes and can only be described as art. Consequently, you'll discover that every subsequent listen will unearth new layers that you seemingly didn't hear before.
For the best experience, listen alone in a dark room with headphones (preferably light up a fat blunt) and give yourself up wholly to the music. Let the deeply malignant and yet blessedly euphoric aura of dissonance overtake your pathetic soul.
Blessed is he that murders Christ in himself and in his fellow man.
Amen. Matthew Kokinda

Sinmara delivers that trademark Icelandic black metal you all love. While Misþyrming deviated from their first album (in a great way), Sinmara builds upon their debut album and refines their sound. It's still that suffocating, bleak, dissonant sound but you will always find some melodic parts amidst all that darkness.
Crimson Stars is one of the greatest black metal songs I've heard in quite a while. Robin
