Unru – Die Wiederkehr des Verdrängten (Review)

Unru - Die Wiederkehr des VerdrängtenThis is the second album from German black metal band Unru.

Die Wiederkehr des Verdrängten actually saw the light of day back in March, but I’ve been listening to it a lot and I just had to give it the attention it deserves with a review. I’ve enjoyed Unru’s work for a while, (check out the band’s 2014 split with Paramnesia and their 2016 debut album Als Tier ist der Mensch Nichts), but this new one is a different beast. The Unru of 2022 have crafted their most expansive, ambitious, and affecting work yet. Continue reading “Unru – Die Wiederkehr des Verdrängten (Review)”

Feral Light - Psychic ContortionsThis is the fourth album from US black metallers Feral Light.

Feral Light impressed me with both 2020’s Life Vapor and the short EP Ceremonial Tower the year after. Psychic Contortions continues the band’s impressive run, showcasing Feral Light doing what they do best across 36 captivating minutes. Continue reading “Feral Light – Psychic Contortions (Review)”
