this is the "juarez, mexico" pressing of the new volahn album, which to the best of my knowledge has yet to see an official pressing or even digital release, aside from the first two tracks.

I like it quite a bit more than the new arizmenda album, which I'll also post soon...not that the other is bad, there's just a lot more variety here and you can hear some genuine musicianship. the recording quality isn't great, but it's clear enough, so hopefully this rip will tide everyone over until an official digital version comes out.

as I think I've mentioned before, I don't condone the label's actions nor the alleged actions of certain members of the faction, but the music remains something that is worthy of attention. and the fact that I got these tapes at all, let alone surprisingly quickly, definitely bodes well for the future of their operations.

check the crepusculo negro store for copies of this as well as a few other new tapes and splits. believe it or not, I think they're really trying to make amends for their past behavior...

whether or not they're worth forgiving?

that's up to you.

(buy a copy from crepusculo negro.)

  1. Thanks you for new volahn.
    Rhinocervs bandcamp dead ?

  2. ever checked out this label?

    they've put out some really great tapes of raw noisy black metal

    the hidden dagger tapes are a couple of my favorite releases from this year.

    thanks for the shares, awesome stuff

    1. thanks so much.

      I think I've heard of that label but haven't actually checked out any releases...will remedy that ASAP.

    2. Can you post the arizmends rip today?

      Thanks for all these awesome releases you post

    3. thanks.

      work has been chaotic today so I'll probably post it tomorrow morning.

    4. No worries, I understand completely. As long as this great blog is still going I am very happy with whatever comes :)

      Love the black metal posts especially on here.

      Thanks again.

    5. thanks for the kind words, very much appreciated...and I'm definitely looking to get more black metal on here as often as possible...

  3. New Arizmenda? Thanks so much blog is bomb

  4. Thanks for this one too my friend. And yes.. you must check the Throat releases. Probably the best underground black metal tape related label on Europe right now.

    1. you are very welcome, my friend.

      I'll do my best to grab a few of those releases...

  5. Delete this now!!!
    Crepusculo Negro demands you remove this now!!!

    1. if you send me an email and prove you own the content, sure.

  6. I'm curious about what actions you refer to that you don't condone.

    1. mostly stealing people's money, but there were other, more unsavory allegations thrown around on various message boards.
