here's the second new perverse homage release.

as per the title, this one's a little more "forest-y" with some nice ambient interludes.

more great stuff, as expected.

highly recommended, and be sure to track down the other sacrilegious crown release.

Hand Of Glory / Sanguine Relic

16:20

30.52 MB

1. Hand Of Glory - Illness Perfected
2. Sanguine Relic - Untitled
3. Sanguine Relic - Untitled




third release from perverse homage, the label formed in the wake of defiled light's demise.

similar aesthetic and sonic offerings, which is exactly what we'd all hoped for.

super raw, super lo-fi, and, most importantly, not on bandcamp.

sanguine relic was another top-tier defiled light act and their two contributions to this split don't disappoint.

highly recommended.

already sold out from the label, keep an eye on discogs.




(nothing's in stock.)

not totally sure how to describe this, especially since I haven't heard any of this band's other work...it's got a very black metal vibe, but it's not black metal...I don't think.

very dark, industrial at times while ambient at others.

released via breathing problem productions, be sure to check out their other releases...lots of great stuff.

2016 comes to a close.




I can't believe that metallic imagery has now been in existence for four years.

sometimes it feels like it's been a lot longer, sometimes a lot shorter...

and while the last three hundred and sixty-five days haven't brought a lot of posts, they have brought a whole lot of personal and professional triumphs.

my girlfriend made a film that's played at a few festivals across the country...it's great and I'm so proud of her.

I've made multiple videos that have played in the united states and europe. I've worked with a whole bunch of musicians whom I really admire.

and we're working on a really awesome webseries that I know a whole lot of you will be into.

all in the continued pursuit of creative and financial freedom.

new music has played an integral role in all of this, it's just a shame that so much of it is readily available online.

and it's also a shame that I don't have nearly as much time nor energy to scour the storefronts of obscure labels and distros hunting for undiscovered gems as I used to...

but metallic imagery has continued, and will continue.


since it's also the end of the year, my list of favorite albums is below.

no subsections, no qualifiers, nothing extraneous - these are just my favorite things that I heard this year, from limited-run tapes to big releases.

streaming links are included as available...


1. sanguine relic - blood on old altars in remembrance.
2. fallujah - dreamless.
3. el-ahrairah - self-titled.
4. oathbreaker - rheia.
5. uškumgallu - rotten limbs in dreams of blood.
6. cobalt - slow forever.
7. marsh dweller - the weight of sunlight.
8. blood incantation - starspawn.
9. bastard of majesty sin - monument of gathered whore bones.
10. chthe'ilist - le dernier crépuscule.
11. wreck and reference - indifferent rivers romance end.
12. katatonia - the fall of hearts.
13. street sects - end position.
14. youth code - commitment to complications.
15. agoraphobic nosebleed - arc.
16. mizmor - yodh.
17. forteresse - thèmes pour la rébellion.
18. orgy of carrion - obscured ceremonies under hell moon.
19. alcest - kodama.
20. 40 watt sun - wider than the sky.
