Streben : ... of Melancholic Elegies and Wanderlust


Streben : ... of Melancholic Elegies and Wanderlust

Band name: Streben

Streben are a black metal duo hailing from Italy, originated from the mind of the female mastermind Hagalaz, handling vocals, bass, synths, music and lyrics. This is their first release - a home-recorded demo of four tracks. The low-fi sound (however, this can be forgiven in a demo album) humbles the songs a bit, but the skills and talent of Streben are plain to hear. What is to be found in "... of Melancholic Elegies and Wanderlust" is melodic yet rough black metal in the vein of 90's releases, but with acoustic passages and ethereal breaks that lend remarkable character to the sound.

Streben : Wild Enchanted Gardens


Streben :  Wild Enchanted Gardens

Band name: Streben

Bands like Astarte and Gallhammer have made the female presence within black metal a more accessible concept to the largely male dominated fan base. Female fronted black metal bands in Italy alone are not unheard of, but they certainly are rare. Melencolia Estatica come to mind when thinking of good female fronted black metal bands from the region, a part of the world normally associated with a rather mediocre scene in general. Melencolia Estatica’s humorously named Climaxia is a solid musician and vocalist. She spearheads the group and, although the band remain relatively obscure, plays a

The Slow Death : The Slow Death


The Slow Death : The Slow Death

Band name: The Slow Death

Overall, the work of The Slow Death is exactly what I had been hoping to hear around the time I discovered them. I was hoping to find some sort of revival of the primitive and gritty sounds of 90's doom/death metal. What's refreshing is that, while melodic elements like clean female vocals and pianos do have a big part in the music, the music is very far from the romanticism that can be associated with the likes of Anathema or My Dying Bride. If anything, this album leans more on the funereal side, with more of a terminal and desolate tone to its sorrowful compositions. Over the course of

The Slow Death : II - Genre : Metal albums reviews

The Slow Death : II


The Slow Death : II

Band name: The Slow Death

This album tells the story of the last people on Earth following a cataclysmic event, and excels at creating moods of isolation and sorrow. (Mandy's excellent artwork also provides a great visualisation of the colours and landscapes evoked in this concept.) Despite the presence of a female band member providing vocals and keyboards, this is firmly guitar-based funeral doom/death metal, with the keyboards mostly used to create unsettling background ambiences and atmospheric intros/outros. Stuart's clean leads throughout the album are beautifully mournful and "Empty Places" and "Reflections in

Majestic Downfall / The Slow Death : split


Majestic Downfall / The Slow Death :  split

Band name: The Slow Death

Well, I'm ecstatic to be soooooo thoroughly wrong. These 3 songs and 35 minutes are quite simply the best thing Majestic Downfall have ever done. And out of the 100+ albums I've heard (so far) this year, its easily the best of the bunch. It has a little bit of everything: doom, death, grind, emotion, change of pace, peaks and valleys. Heck, even it's softer moments (when you can breathe) only help to accentuate it's overall brutality. It's masterfully written and beautifully put together. Everything sounds so good, lush and organic. "Dark Lullaby" features the best riff Jacobo has ever come
