- Nocturnal Poisoning by Xasthur
I saw Bonnie 'Prince' Billy last night in Bristol, and the big bearded slaphead was ace! And when I'm not enjoying some masterful alt.country/nu folk type stuff I like nothing better than putting the kettle on and relaxing to a bit of intense black metal (BM)courtesy of Xasthur. Most BM is rubbish of course, but Xasthur's racket is a real gem - heavily reverb drenched guitars not unlike MBV, and indecipherable vocals (thankfully I'm sure!) buried in the mix so that they sound like a buzzing chainsaw only add to the fun. You even get some cracking dark ambient stuff here, with a vinyl only bonus of an extended version of 'Forgotten Depths of Nowhere' which doubles the delight that the cd version offers. Alongside the likes of Leviathan, Nortt, and yer Dead Raven Choir this is some seriously good BM. Thank the Southern Lordy for that!
