Hic Iacet

Here we have a rather odd take on doomy black metal from an obscure Spanish band on their 2015 effort, The Cosmic Trance Into The Void. The band take influences from black, death, and doom metal, but in doing so they manage to not really sound like any of those genres. One way to describe them musically might be very early Celtic Frost, if they had gone a more black/death route rather than the occult/doom direction. The riffs are raw and somewhat simplistic, the vocals distant deathly howls, the production primitive, yet there's something oddly compelling here. Not sure what kind of staying power this band has, but Cosmic Trance is a surprise hit to these ears.
