argylesock5 This album is something else. Among black metal, rarely does the mood of an album feel tailored to the depression and experience of an authentic, real human life; blasting Nordic winds and a glorious death at the gates of Valhalla are scenic, but don't truly relate. There is no short way to nail what makes it so extraordinary, but you'll be hearing a lot of doom, noise, rock, and black metal influence on this release. The trick might be that it's all at once. This is worth your time... Favorite track: No Premature Celebrations.

about

SRUIN044
一期一会 (Ichi-go ichi-e): "for this time only, never again". This japanese idiom is the central theme of the new, second, unbelievable album of the same name by the elusive psychedelic/avantgarde black metal enigma 夢遊病者 (Sleepwalker). Once again fusing drone, raw black metal, kraut/psychedelic rock, free-jazz, noise rock, and tribal ritualism to absolutely mind-melting effect, Sleepwalker's idea behind this new record was to take central superstitions that rule the rhetoric of eastern lore and funnel them through the prism of the modern world. The final result: the band's staple psychedelic black metal mind-fuck ritual gloriously preserved and burning brighter and more insanely than ever. Suspended between the visionary opposites of bands like Voivod, Zeni Geva, Oxbow, King Crimson, Ornassi Pazuzu, Lurker of Chalice, and Xasthur, with "一期一会" Sleepwalker have once again proven to be one of the most mind-expanding and visionary experimental black metal acts of our times.
