Ash Borer: Bloodlands

For any black metal to be effective it needs to meet two simple artistic requirements: create a credible atmosphere and convey the ill-tempered emotion therein. Ash Borer doesn't simply communicate those elements; it enshrouds the listener in them.

Ash Borer: Cold of Ages

Whether Cold of Ages reflects the repeated patterns of nature and life, a nihilistic devotion to demolition, or rebirth from the ashes has been left open to interpretation. What is very clear, however, is that it is a hugely important album for the US black metal scene.
