Unabashedly described as 'A prodigious collision of intoxicating black metal ferocity and late night atmospheric jazz.'

Your interest is either piqued or it isn't, but mine most certainly was.

With it's actual Black smacking of Ukraine via Sweden with a stopover in France, this album doesn't dick about too much in typical 'Post' territory, and I like that. It's heavy, dense and aggressive.

As for that late night jazz? It's folded into the mix pretty neatly, I have to say. Splicing genres, especially ones being carried by somewhat alien instruments to the music itself, often sounds off to my ears, but this, it sits real nice. It's mostly subtle, and prominent when it makes sense for it to be. It's more unobtrusive even than the trumpet work on Sear Bliss records.

That lazy sax, ripping away behind the throat bleedy Ukrainian vocals can take you by surprise. It stays in it's lane while fulfilling a melody easily fulfilled by a six string. It just works.

The little lapses into more prominent, piano-laden, smooth jazz territory are just that, little, and satisfyingly backed by the raucous Black.

The performance is tight, the concept is well executed and pretty narcotic in places. This is what I want from Post Black; a genre that generally disappoints me.

It's a special album worth your time and attention. I haven't said enough about it, and I won't, 'cause I gotta go sink into this lovely work all over again.

Belter.
