Nivathe - Enveloped In A Diseased Abyss (2009)

Ok. To spare yourselves the time of reading an entire little review, just do yourselves a favor and glance at the cover art and the name of the album for a quick second. If you haven't come to the conclusion that this is some heavy, depressive black metal already then you should probably just ignore this post. This album is not for the faint of heart or people with no patience. It's very atmospheric and droney between the disgustingly intense surges of hatred and self-loathing. The whole thing is an abomination in the best way possible. It's all one guy from texas (I believe he goes by 'Plague') who hates pretty much everything and makes it VERY clear. Check this out if you hate yourself.

1. Writhing, Collapsed Flesh
2. Veins Of Death And Hunger
3. Decay

You might find this interesting.

We refer to it as "Analog Music from a Lost World" -- previously unreleased post-punk experimental rock from 1981, unlike anything else recorded before or after.

"It’s out there but a really good listen...some awesome experimental work." — Richmond Playlist

"It’s challenging music made by a collection of people who know what the f_ck they’re talking about when it comes to records...fantastic record...holds its own unique feel and straight weirdness. What more could you want?" --

"...enjoyed it immensely! Odd, odd sounds, but funky in a twisted way." —

"...a comment i had from an anonymous friend made me to move my old fat ass and write about this unique lost treasure, post-punk mixed with avant-rock, filled with spastic rhythms and synths in a very New York-ish manner, something like a No Wave Beefheart, if he was a female..." —

"It's amazing!" -- Gibraltar Encyclopedia of Progressive Rock

"...pretty weird: mixtures of grrl band vocals, psych rock and spaced-out guitar, and 60s style poetic verse.
Pretty weird, in the good way." —

"Once again, those lovely folks over at WFMU beat us all to the punch with another chunk of previously unknown avant/post-punk brilliance circa 1981, proving that no matter how much you root around, there's always another truffle waiting to be dug up..." --

“...lovely and odd...” -- No Rock and Roll

"It reminds me at times of early Sonic youth. To be honest I love anything which contains deranged female warblings. You can listen to or download the whole thing from the Free Music Archive website. Well worth an hour of your time." --

"...some hefty grooves, and plenty of 'holy shit" moments'. It's a spacious but highly rewarding listen, and I wouldn't be surprised if some label makes an effort to press this on vinyl in the near future." --

"This is amazing stuff and we would be honored to feature it in wfmu's curated portal on the free music archive. I'm very sorry for our slow response, we have a lot of stuff to wade through to find gems like these."
