My first post on this blog will be about this energic band from México. Even though this is not Black Metal, many of you will be interested. The lyrics are about the human race being a failure, this is also where their name (“Failed Species”) comes from. 

Let’s think for a minute: What are we in the middle of misery? the progress is just an illusion and we are just living deads walking in a gray big city. Someone who points out these themes definitely worth the time of listening, you will not be disappointed.

Panopticon & Waldgeflüster - split (2016)


Year: 2016
Genre: Atmospheric Black Metal
Country: USA / Germany

Track List:
  1. Der Traumschänder (Waldgeflüster)
  2. Norwegian Nights (Waldgeflüster)
  3. Håkan's Song (Panopticon)
  4. Trauerweide II (Panopticon)

As you can see, I don't really care much about this blog anymore, and the other contributors aren't very active either. On the other hand, I had some talks with the members of the TDSAU collective, and one of their founding members agreed to run this blog too. As of now he isn't active on here or on TDSAU, but I hope he will be back soon.

In other news: some time ago, one of my readers asked me why wouldn't I get a contributor from Latin America, because a lot of interesting RABM-related stuff comes from that part of the world. Looks like I finally did it, and I have high hopes for her participation as well.

And for those who haven't seen it yet: here's a new CD from Panopticon, and it's great as always. The second band on this split is really good too, but I don't know much about them - except I've seen them on some list of bands with anti-NSBM stance several years ago. If you need a download link for this split, I think you'd easily find it without my help.
