The Black Market: The Month In Metal – August 2014

Guys, I usually kick off the Black Market with a lengthy introductory essay, an aggregation of my thoughts on the month in metal. But August ... August kinda ate me alive. That is not to say that I don't have thoughts, or that August didn't generate enough thoughts to inspire an essay. I do! It… More »

Winterfylleth – “Whisper Of The Elements” (Stereogum Premiere)

Back in 2012, in a short review of the song "The Swart Raven," I wrote, "I've never understood why Winterfylleth aren’t one of the biggest (or bigger, anyway) black metal bands in the world."

Winterfylleth – “A Valley Thick With Oaks” (Stereogum Premiere)

I've spoken (a number of times) about it being a good year for non-Scandinavian black metal. As mentioned back in August, add England's Winterfylleth to the list via their excellent second album The Mercian Sphere. The folky, progressive pagan/landscape black metal quartet features two members of expansive Manchester doom crew Atavist -- there used to… More »
