Torch of Decaying Log - 7''
This is easily one of the best 7 inches from a new band that came out in this glorious year. This is the gnawed and half-digested remains of quick songs, stomping beats, minimal riffs and electronics burps thrown up over Ildjarn. This quick record consists of everything I enjoy about the species of Black Metal that this blog has attempted to cater to. I had to force myself to stop playing it a dozen times a day just so I wouldn't run the risk of burning out on this entire style of music. I really hope this isn't a one time deal.
