Darrin King An excellent black metal album with a dash of prog. All of the musicianship and vocal deliveries are superb. I could probably throw this on my desert island list, that's how much I like it. Favorite track: The Heavens in Traction.

Jack Morley An interesting and immersive combination of black, drone and more, 'The Heavens in Traction' offers a fantastic variety of darkness and eeriness.
Haunting vocals and atmospheric instrumental qualities that bulge with originality make this one of the most unique and enjoyable albums of it's type on Bandcamp. Favorite track: Winter's Burden.
