Nerium Oleander - Declination
it always fills me with nervous excitement when I find a brand new label that's just getting started, watching the artist or artists involved trying to nail down an aural esthetic, a visual aesthetic, solid design, customer service...everything that goes into running a label.
so when all of those things line up perfectly right off the bat, it's tough to know what to say...but instead of overthinking it, let's just let the music speak for itself, right?
this is the very first release from valentine sinclair's brand new clandestine compositions label and it's right up our collective alleys - raw black metal with a healthy dose of atmospherics to temper the fury. it's all very cold and bleak and all those other adjectives we love so much.
if you like what you hear, grab both this one and the other release that's currently up for sale.
excellent music, excellent aesthetic, and excellent customer service. nothing makes me happier - can't wait to see what comes next.
