Altar of plagues - Mammal

Genre : Post-black metal

If you enjoy urban-influenced black metal, Mammal should really be a pleasure for you. Through an hopeless atmosphere and machinery-sounding guitars, they've been able to kick any kind of light out of this record. All it evokes is a decayed society, shattered buildings, in a post-apocalyptic world. But this is well done, there are a good amount of clean parts and it's not a brutal black metal release, even though drums are really raw and upfront in the mix. If you want to venture through a destroyed, deprived of light universe, Mammal is the right album to listen to, as long as you setup the right mood to go with it... Not to be listened to on a sunny day at the beach!

Check out Neptune is dead and All life converges to some center if you feel ready to venture through this world. And follow Altar of plagues on Facebook.
