Moving to Reddit

Since almost all the stuff on here is now being reposted from /r/RABM/ (except for the last few entries), and I seem to be the only active contributor by now, I've decided to move there. This blog will remain as an archive and won't be deleted, but new music submissions should be made to /r/RABM/ (requires a Reddit account, but it can be created in few minutes if you don't have one).

/r/RABM/ is a big and fairly active community, and I think of it as a worthy successor to this blog. Note also that the /r/RABM/ moderators aren't contributors on here.

One of my favourite post-black metal bands. Maybe not exactly red/anarchist, but fairly close to, judging from the lyrics. Their vocalist Anna also sings in Archivist, my another favourite in this genre.

A Congregation of Horns - "Goat Cult" (2018)


Year: 2018
Genre: Black/Death Metal
Origin: UK

Track List:
  1. Goat Cult
  2. Symbolic Gesture
  3. Wyrre

One-man old school death/black metal band with anti-fascist lyrics from London, UK (although it's self-described as "True Canadian War Metal"). Also contributed a song to the first Worldwide Organization of Metalheads Against Nazis compilation.

Primogenitis - "Lords of Storms" (2019)

PRIMOGENITIS "Lords of Storms"

Year: 2019
Genre: Blackened Noise
Origin: Crimea

Track List:
  1. Thunderstorm
  2. Meet the Fate
  3. Merciless Squalls
  4. Lords of Storms
  5. Victory Over Elements

Primogenitis is an one man raw black / noise project from the Crimea, started in 2019. This EP is quite short and noisy, and its main theme is described as follows:

"This EP is dedicated to the Vikings, and more specifically, the Viking voyages, the struggle with the elements and courage. Do not be afraid to go towards your destiny"

While it isn't openly political, the person behind Primogenitis is a staunch anarchist and anti-fascist.
