Genre: Post-Black Metal, Blackened Crust
Country: USA

  5. Buried Under The Waves Of Discontent
  6. Night Terrors On The Eve Of The Winter Solstice

Like in case with Ash Eaters, I got to hear this album shortly after it was released (and found it to be very good), but until now I didn't know that the members of Katahajime read and support my blog:

 "...We're from Allentown,PA in the states, and we are about a year and a half old, we originally started as a 3 piece and we recorded a s/t release as that chapter, not to long after we decided that we would benefit from a 2nd guitarist and added a friend of ours to the mix, with him we recorded two tour demo tapes, a summer and fall one. The bands name is Katahajime, pronounced (kata-ha-ja-may) it is a Japanese judo hold similar to a chokehold.  We did two small tours with those tapes. Since we have been back from our tour we are working hard at getting the songs for our upcoming full length finished, we will be going into the studio very soon and hope to have the LP out by spring/summer. At the current moment it will most likely be a self release by us. When people ask myself of my band mates to describe our sound it gets tough, we mix a bunch of things together as you will hear in the songs. I tend to say we are a "atmospheric blackend crust" band with hints of black metal, crust, d-beat, and post rock..."
