Insect Ark is Dana Schechter’s solo project again and the focus is no longer on heavy music but on dark ambient atmospherics for the new EP, Future Fossils.
Dana Schechter reverts Insect Ark to their solo form, leaving behind the psychedelic rock structures for a dark ambient detour.
Normally, August is regarded as a slow month when it comes to new music. But this August dropped an abundance of metal, spreading across the spectrum.
Filled with venomous riffs, a cold-detached precision, and a sharp dissonant edge, Decoherence’s System I is a haunting work of extravagant black metal.
This month in metal: Spectral Lore push progressive black metal’s boundaries, post-rock pioneers Godspeed You! Black Emperor return, and modern thrashers Evile tweak their sound to arise after eight long years.
