Blackatmospheric thumbnail
Blackatmospheric This band is amazing playing a style that blends Smoothly Jazz, the kind one listen at a bar with dark ambience/atmospheric black metal. Hard to pick a favorite song because all are unique and love them all. 🤘🏻💀👌🏻 from 🇵🇷
Tim thumbnail
Tim Deep stuff. This really stands out from the crowd. Classy, emotionally charged and wonderfully performed.

The vocal/saxophone interplay is particularly sublime...

Vidma 08:15
Around the shadows of beautiful walls Shapeless customs of oblivion are passing by To rule the age of time Immortal bliss compressed in a void The ancient suffering recaptured again Without any feelings of lost essence Inside loneliness my pain screams Torture, oh my beautiful companion! Behold the moments of despair I drink the essence of solitude Long time before my scars appeared Long time before my death to come…
The cabin looks friendly at this hour In this night I wander lost in darkness My fears are lighted by a cold flame The question takes control again… Will I light the house, to burn my fears? To burn the hundred souls inside me… To crawl every night into an infernal noise And at this darkest moment they erupt again The branches trap me inside the forest From the swamp the end will come again Black curtains fall in a killing rhythm It’s again chaos, oh magical chaos… A broken smile seats in the corner I cut the hand that feeds me For moving dreams and immaterial desires Slaughter puts stigmatic signs all around


KATHAROS XIII‘s third opus, Palindrome, is made of five long tracks that shifted from the traditional Depressive Black Metal into a more eclectic art form of expression with Dark Doom Metal and Post-Jazz elements, a certain evolution into a more personal unearthly ambiance that represent a new path in the journey that this band embarked more than twelve years ago. The same paranoia and weirdness but with different tools this time.
