Kognitiv Tod  


This is one of those one-man projects led by a guy with a lot of time on his hands, as he's already cranked out 6 indie albums in just 3 years. Listening to the sixth album, 2016's Eternal Return, it's odd that several have placed this band in the black metal category, as this is dominated by spacey, ethereal keyboards, a prominent bass, rather simplisticly programmed drums, and practically no vocals save some very distant, vaguely black-ish whispers. If black metal must be part of the description, then "new-agey, progressive black metal" might be a better overall tag. Both the arrangements and the production are rather sparse, yet the straightforward nature of the whole thing is one of its strengths. Definitely in the "something different" category, this isn't going to appeal to everyone (especially for those wanting something more, well, metallic), but it's intriguing and interesting in a background-listening sort of way.
