My recent taste for black metal seemed to pan towards the ambient/atmospheric variety, with bands like Fen, Winterfylleth, and Wodensthrone being regulars on my daily playlist of late. Yet few bands really manage to create the perfect atmosphere to communicate the emotions as well as they potentially could. Enter Belgium’s Soul Dissolution, with their sophomore full length album, Stardust.

The French black metal scene of late seems to have been divided into two main factions – the already very familiar dissonant style fronted by bands like Deathspell Omega and Blut Aus Nord, and my recently discovered atmospheric style of bands like The Great Old Ones. Aorlhac’s musical style leans more towards those of the latter with their third full length album, L’esprit des vents, their first post-reunion release.

Too many bands these days proclaim space and the future as their main inspiration, and though my favourites have tended towards the thrash genre (Vektor, or Vexovoid), Germany’s Vyre has left me impressed with their blackened/post-metal leanings instead with their third opus, Weltformel. Bringing together the best of bands like Arcturus, Ihsahn, and so much more, this is a space metal album not to be missed.

Kosmogyr is an atmospheric black metal duo that features members from Prague and Shanghai, two countries with cultures that can’t be more different from each other. This leaves one to wonder what they might sound like on their debut full length release, Eviternity. Would the band sound more like the raw style of bands like China’s Skeletal Augury, or lean towards the occult of Czech Republic’s Cult of Fire?

With a refreshed lineup, France’s Monolithe returns with their seventh release, Nebula Septem. The album’s theme revolves around the number seven, with 7 tracks that are 7 minutes each, and a lineup that boasts 7 members. Gimmicks aside, would the band impress? Fortunately so, as they unleash 49 minutes of pure, dark, doom metal.
