A to Z 2K17: X is for Xasthur

Artist:  Xasthur
Song:  Screaming At Forgotten Fears
Album:  To Violate The Oblivious
Genre:  DSBM (Depressive/Suicidal Black Metal)

Here's a downer again, because I love playing with all your emotions.  This dude is pretty impressive in the sense that all the music on his albums with the exception of a couple tracks were recorded by him alone.

The guys definitely swings to the DSBM sector due to lyrical content than he does other styles, but that doesn't need to mean his music is bad.  He's just a rather sad person.

Not anymore though, after dropping the stage name Xasthur for a few years he's picked it back up!  But he's not putting out any Black Metal anymore, that part of his life is done apparently.

Cool atmospheric stuff to listen to though, so shoutout to Jeff again for recommending this dude.

  1. DSBM . . . I had no idea there was such a thing. I learn something new (though perhaps not useful in the long run) every day.

    1. Yep yep, learn all about that sad music here, haha
