Maxwell Heilman Cascadian black metal, like most atmospheric black metal styles, often sounds great in concept but rarely lives up to expectations. Both of these bands understand the importance of musicality to back up their sonic aura. Naturalism and mysticism manifest from the songwriting, not from image. These guys know what cascadian black metal is all about, and it shows. Favorite track: The Expiation.

Final The famous Steichen photograph comes to mind upon reading the title of Stellar Descent’s contribution, and I feel it sets the mood perfectly. Frogs ribbitting in the back while a (for this artist) brief melody tells a tale that sounds like a mixture of the stellar “On the Shores of this Cosmic Ocean” and the earthen “Cycles of Life”. Fantastic as always.
Aylwin’s, too, is a lot like their previous material, but harder and less aerious. Definitely a great release! Favorite track: Moonrise.

Track Name: Aylwin - The Expiation
My Life’s redemption
Spiritual
A Purge and rebirth in ecstasy

The Soul’s ascension
From the groundwork filth
The reclamation
Of Strength and will

One spiral motion
Our breath entwined
Let the moon cast shadows
By the lambent flame

A change in pattern
Metaphysical
This evolution
Now Visual
The flooding of my earth
Cleansing

Spirit finds solace
In the sounds of wind
A major movement
Through root and iron

Conquer all
Revel the venom
The Expiation
The cleansing of…
