Marnost / Oaken - split LP - IFB072
Marnost hail from Czech Republic and have been creating a unique style of atmospheric anarcho black metal for a while now. This effort is one long track, recorded originally as a soundtrack for a short film. Harsh layers of feedback give way to a gorgeous and foreboding build-up, finally lashing you with a wall of noise drenched black metal. Truly an excellent listening experience. Hungary's Oaken drop 2 long tracks of heavy and dark hardcore, influenced as much by His Hero is Gone style bludgeoning as more modern epic post-metal. The mood goes from grinding/beating hardcore to more atmospheric parts complete with haunting singing. This is co-released by many different labels from the US, Canada, and Europe - DIY cooperation forever! They are sold out.
