a Pregnant Light – “Death My Hanging Doorway” – [Colloquial Sound Recordings]

dmhd

2012 EP from the solo project of Michigan’s ‘Deathless Maranatha’ AKA Damian Master, owner of the Colloquial Sound tape label. One 20-minute track of forward-thinking ‘post-Black Metal.’ After a reflective guitar intro it launches into a belligerent Progressive BM tour de force of many movements, with tasteful hardcore, math and screamo influences (think a more aggressive Bosse-de-Nage or a punkier Stargazer). Masculine, sincerely despair-laden vocals provide a counterpoint to the melodic blur of guitar. Perfect drum production helps give it teeth. Lyrics apparently deal with religious mysticism and sexuality. Lush and beautiful, but savage. Black Metal will never die, just mutate…?
