The second thing that I'd like to show you today is a post-BM/blackgaze from Azerbaijan. Yes, there's a project from Azerbaijan which self-identifies with RABM, which was a total surprise to me. All the punk, hardcore, and black metal bands from Azerbaijan, combined together, can be counted on hands, and I really haven't expected that my blog will get a band from there one day. Yet it has happened.

Violet Cold is an one-man project from Baku started by Emin Guliyev in 2013. Initially it sounded nothing like metal, more like post-rock or electronica. This one is not a real release, more like a compilation made by a maintainer of our RABM group on VK, apparently with Emin's permission. It contains tracks from the latest "Red Ocean" and "Fight For Freedom" singles, as well as other recent releases of Violet Cold, which are all post-black metal.

The material presented on there is just avesome. Violet Cold is easily one of the best of my personal discoveries in 2015, and probably will be one of the best post-BM projects on the world scale, if only the quality of recording was a bit better. Highly recommended!
