Black metal is the perfect example of beauty being in the eye of the beholder. What might be white, static, noise to one person, is a heart renching piece of art to another.
@decibelmagazine has premiered the video for "Past The Lights," the latest single from A Grief Observed, the impending debut LP from CHROME WAVES, containing former members of Wolvhammer, Nachtmystium, Abigail Williams, The Gates Of Slumber, Amiensus, and more. The video was directed, filmed and edited by Eddie of Curran Enterprise Films. The record was engineered by Niko Albanese with the band's James Benson and Jeff Wilson and finished with artwork by Wilson. A Grief Observed will be released on Disorder Recordings on March 1st.

Gotta be honest, I've been somewhat lazy for the last week or two when it comes to music but I returned to my cottage at @sleepingvillagereviews and said the following regarding Swallow The Sun's most recent work:
Unlike anger, sadness is a constant, lingering emotion that slowly overtakes every fiber of your being if not unleashed in some way. For me, this is what makes sad music so special, its honesty and intensity are unmatched - if done right, of course.
The Finnish doom scene is famous for its gorgeous and heart-rending music and Swallow The Sun should immediately come to mind. As some of you may know, Juha Raivio, the band's mastermind, lost his longtime girlfriend and wonderful vocalist Aleah Standbrige due to cancer in 2016, and to alleviate his pain he created Hallatar, a titanic death-doom supergroup.
Now, almost four years after their ambitious (and badly produced) triple album 'Songs From The North I, II & III', Swallow The Sun returns with 'When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light', which pays respect to Aleah in a different manner. Unlike their previous work and especially Hallatar, the band decided for a more restrained and spacious approach, and it works wonders. Impressive considering Juho Räihä and Jaani Peuhu (both live members of Hallatar) make their debut here, but they do this in a very memorable fashion...
I think I did the record justice and I hope you enjoy my solid sadboi-infused slab of text. It can be found on our trusty page, you know the drill.
In any case, expect more excellent music and more (hopefully) excellent reviews in the very near future!

Next week, Friday - Feb 22nd, we are playing with Russian Circles and Gouge Away at the Abbey. This night will be incredible. If you’ve never heard or seen either of the bands, look them up. Russian Circles have always been a favorite of mine and a huge influence on me. Please come out and enjoy incredibly good, talented, powerful music with us. We have tickets for cheaper than anywhere they’re selling so please message me or the gents in Royal Graves, it does help us when you get them from us as well. This show is set to sell out. Very excited.
