Matthew McBride A great guitar tone buried in moderate hum and buzz stands out triumphantly meandering on "Pondering the Wastes".

The drumming throughout is primarily blast beat driven, has some nice fills and it's just a great piece of Black Metal. I'm not sure why they're not more popular.

The vocals are raw and burly enough to balance nicely and they are in the right place on the tracks, sort of intermixed with the guitar and drums at about the same level. Favorite track: Pondering the Wastes.

Meatbreak This is a pretty huge slab of temperate forest metal.

Four meditations on ruin and rage, coarsely wrought from blackened grit and quiescent human guilt. Originally conceived in 2009, these tracks have been resurrected and reimagined for release on limited edition vinyl.

This digital album is a vinyl rip.
