Wiegedood – There’s Always Blood At The End Of The Road
…the album [is] rich with feeling, beautiful in the way that a carcass is beautiful as it rots to become one with the earth again.

Enjoy Hayduke’s Top 50 of 2021 list.
Lhaäd – Below
This debut album sucks all the air out of your lungs and holds you under for the entirety of its forty minute run-time.
Sol Kia – Zos Ethos
The intensity of Zos Ethos cannot be understated. … Let it be the deep experience it’s meant to be.
FULL ALBUM STREAM: PRECARIA and ÔROS KAÙ – Theosulphuros
Taken together, the two sides of Theosulphuros have something of a yin yang quality to them – the more structured Precaria, riding herd on the wild nature of Darkness, driving chaos relentlessly forward and the more chaotic ÔROS KAÙ whose wild rhythms reveal a central, mesmeric calm being birthed.
Ôros Kaù – Imperii Templum Aries
…swirling and hypnotic, a psychedelic blend of avantgarde black metal chaos worship.
Living Gate – Deathlust
…five spiraling out of control songs that your neighbors will love…If they don’t, then turn it up until they do.
FEATURE: Neptunian Maximalism – Éons
…metal-adjacent, and utterly, mind-blowingly impossible to describe, though I will attempt to do just that in this feature article.
BEAR – Propaganda
Overall, if I were to describe Propaganda with one word it would be “stimulating”; the lyrics made me think, the music made me move, and I was never bored.
