On the topic of German Black Metal, the new sampler from Zeitgeister Records has had me hooked for the last few days. The label is home to some of the most adventurous metal acts of the moment (Klabautamann, Valborg, Woburn House, etc.), and looks set to unleash some real beasts in the near future. The track that really blew me away is by Owl, a band I can find no information about whatsoever. It’s dissonant, blackened death metal with haunting vocals and some tastefully-deployed atmospherics (an actual owl, no less). Does anybody know anything about these guys?
Listen to their song ‘Loom’ below, along with the rest of this excellent compilation.
