San Franciscan experimentalists Mamaleek record their third studio album for The Flenser imprint, and their first to be written and recorded as a full-band set-up. Melding blues, jazz and avant-garde techniques since their foundation in 2008, Come & See finds them drifting ever further from the moorings of their black metal beginnings.

I can't get enough of this record, perhaps because it provides such a fantastic rhythm for smashing my head against the walls during these testing, isolated times.
Calling this album black metal is unjust; it's an incredible attempt to merge jazz, blues, and black metal into a nightmare that i presume Stephen O'Malley has had at some point.
I want to pick out a favourite track, but I can't - the tracks merge together perfectly. Recommended.
