A Cryptic Howl of Morbid Truth

by Black Earth



Finally, the vinyl incarnation of this gem see the light, originally released by Graceless Recordings on cassette in 2015.

Mantric dissolution of suffocating and hopeless ritual ambient invocations, hailing among the ruins through improvisational meditative trances - from the unconscious to the enlightenment, spawning its swarming amalgam of noise, black metal and dark ambient miasmas. Droning asphyxiating psalms for the spiritually moribund, and the already dead.

"Black Earth’s suffocating, grating blend of murky black metal with industrial music and harsh noise occupies that niche genre occupied by bands like Gnaw Their Tongues, Senthil, Möevöt and the like – the embodiment of absolute terror. A Cryptic Howl Of Morbid Truth will engulf you with the immediacy of a cheese grater to your ear, and you will lovingly accept it."
