Sounds for a Rainy Friday

It's a cold, rainy day in New York; the kind of day where the raw edge of the elements cuts at you, mocking you for daring to challenge the faceless, endless gray universe. A day, in other words, for black metal. Blut Aus Nord has the perfect sound to match the weather on "Elevation": an arpeggiated riff, sporting fuzz and drenched in reverb, plodding forward under the searing scream of a solo guitar. 'Remember,' it seems to say, 'in the face of infinity, you are less than nothing.' Enjoy:

This is by far one of my favorite blogs. Thanks for the excellent writing! Here in Philly it's been baroque, bleak, and brutal, too, so this post is much appreciated.

Thanks man! Glad to share the gloom, as it were.
