Merkaba - "Bones Of The Sacred Forest" (2011)

MERKABA "Bones of the Sacred Forest"

Year: 2011
Genre: Atmospheric Black Metal, Post-Black Metal
Country: USA

Track List:
  1. Faultline
  2. Eyes Lose Focus
  3. We Seem to Pass like Ships in the Night
  4. Continuum
  5. Glacial Fire

"Bones Of The Sacred Forest" is the first full-length album by Merkaba, released about an year and a half ago. Back then I had an active correspondence both with the band and with the organization they're associated with (RAAN), but completely forgot to post their album when it was finally out. Then again, better late than never, so I hope you'll enjoy some atmospheric, meditative, post-rock'ish BM strongly in vein of my blog's ideology. Like Panopticon, Merkaba are from Kentucky, and participate in a Lexington, KY-based circle of experimental/eco-spiritualist musicians - Concentric Drone Cult.

  1. It's basically reverb-heavy Cascadian black metal, a la a less ferocious Ash Borer. It's pretty good.
