Hemelbestormer - Aether (Debemur Morti)
There’s only one good new release this week, but it’s absolutely killer. The debut full-length from this Belgian quartet is a 4 song, 1 hour journey through devastating Post-Metal landscapes. In fact, I was so entranced by the atmospheric riffage that I didn’t realize this was all instrumental until about 20 minutes in. The songs are all over 12 minutes long, but they all drop out a few times per track, coming back with a weirdo drone interlude before resuming the crushing maelstrom. If you need to doom your nuts off this week, check this one out immediately.
