Kind of Like: Raien, Orchid, Black Metal
Genres: Metal, Post-hardcore, Screamo
Ken showed me this band a little bit ago and I've taken the time to give it a listen. This is a proclaimed black metal band. There is definitely a black metal foundation (thrashing, blast beats, boiled-pitch screaming), but I think that this album really has a lot in common with screamo/post-hardcore bands like Raien in a really good way. There is well over an hour of material on this album, so I could see it getting redundant, but there are some really great ideas going on here and this could be a great album to help kids not normally accustomed to black metal get a introduction to something like it.
