Near three weeks short of a year ago we featured a short post of The Blackest Breed, the second track from Netherbird’s first full-length, The Ghost Collector. That release and their 2009 cover EP, Covered in Darkness, have been available for free download for quite a while. Earlier this week I discovered that they’ve put their 2010 album, Monument Black Colossal, up too!
Netherbird began in Sweden in 2004 with the intent to create Metal without the limitations of a specific sub-genre. They have succeeded, as they could be called melodic symphonic Black Metal with a gothic doom atmosphere and the grooving riffage of Death Metal. Jump ahead for a sample and the link!
Across the Chasm is the closing track on Monument Black Colossal and it’s a good represenation of the albums journey to reach it. A work for fans of all Metal. Be sure to check out The Blackest Breed, too. If this wets your tastebuds check out their website for info and the free download links and CD ordering links.
