Abstracter / Dark Circles – Split 12″
Hc/crust vs blackened death doom. dope.
Released on April 1st, this split by Montreal’s Dark Circles and Oakland, CA’s Abstracter is one terrifying release, with some of the best output by either band. Made up of six songs, the split contains animalistic D-beat courtesy of the former and megaton doom courtesy of Abstracter, each half lovingly flavored with sharpest crust and void-rich black metal. Enjoy.
Following their acclaimed Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything released in January, Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra dust off an old chesnut from their 2005 album Horses In The Sky and coat it in glitter and shards of glass; not remixes really, but brand new recordings that use set-closing live favourite “Hang On To Each Other” as a launching point for some rather glorious dancefloor excursions.
