Orcustus - Orcustus
Genre: Black Metal
Orcustus is a Norwegian black metal band consisting of members from Gorgoroth, Enslaved, 1349, Carpathian Forest, etc. Apparently they released a demo years ago that I haven't heard, but I just listened to the 2009 self-titled full-length debut, and it's a beast! It's very thrashy and intense, and I would recommend it to anybody who enjoys the olde-tyme Norwegian black metal sound. That's some bad album art right thur.
In other news, A from Panopticon visited my blog (yay!), and he let me know that a new split with Wheels Within Wheels is now out and available here. So I ordered a copy and I'll have it up for you guys when it arrives, but you should buy it as well! It's limited to 100 copies, so you'll be picking up on kp (kvlt points) at the same time.
