Ash Borer - "Oblivion's Spring"

New MusickitbrownComment

In a world without Weakling and Xasthur, it's certainly nice to hear and American black metal band as terrifying as they are atmospheric. California's Ash Borer are back and gearing up for the release of their new EP entitled Bloodlands which will be released on Gilead Media and Psychic Violence in April. "Oblivion's Spring" is a sprawling, gloomy, 15-minute epic with plenty of chilling tremolo-picking riffs customary to the genre as well as a healthy dose of funeral doom influence from artists like Ahab and Catacombs. This song comes highly recommended to anyone living in a place with consistently bad weather.
