Tales from Bandcamp: Empress/Abscess by Immortal Bird


a2684052136_10I’m not the type of person who often remembers their dreams.  However, I do remember a few.  One of them was from when I was a teenager or something.  Probably after watching The Blob or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles I had this dream where I was trapped in a dank sewer trudging through the sludgy sewage while Charon floated in his boat behind me and whacked me with his oars.  Listening to Empress/Abscess by Immortal Bird reminds me of that dream.  It’s dark, sludgy, and smacks you around.  Elements of black metal and thrash round out this roughly 30 minute romp.  The artwork is pretty rad too.

Check it out, share with you buddies, toss some couch change at the band, and let us know what you thunk.  Enjoy!!! Peace Love and Metal!!!!

Tales from Bandcamp: Sleep at the Edge of the Earth by Wilderun


a1806077540_10Here’s a fun one for you guys.  Parts sword swinging, beer swilling folk metal, nut crunching death and black metal, parts Opeth-ian prog dynamics, and parts shatteringly beautiful nature metal.  Pretty much, for me, everything this record does check off on my unwritten list of this that make me love a record.
I really don’t have much to say other than I just wanted to make you all aware of this kick-ass batch of tunes.  Great songwriting that is brutal, beautiful, and above all, absolutely fun to listen to over and over again.  Well worth the 7 clams.  Fans of Opeth, Ensiferum, Turisas, and Eluvetie should not skip this one.  Don’t think, trust me, buy it!!!!!
Give it a spin and let us know what you thought.
