Joosep Nilk A morosely throbbing nautical journey into the depths of the seafloor abyss. An absolute masterpiece. Favorite track: Myra.

jamroom This album will drown you in its beautiful sludge. Let it take you down into the undertow and let your lungs fill for the last time... Taz and Hel's vocals are the icing on this particular cake, creating an unsettling atmosphere. A class act, for sure. Favorite track: Lockjaw.

Tom Colquhoun Occult and pulverising, and utterly relentless. The disharmonious, mantrically chanted vocals are dark and compelling, and lead the listener through stark and brooding woods of minimalist guitar-drone. Favorite track: Milk.

Michael Peck Great follow up to their EP, A Sea of Dead Snakes. This moves at a snails pace and drags you down into it's bleak undercurrent. Favorite track: Mandrill.

Lockjaw 11:37
one or many none but a few the tricks and traps we set to drag you through so don't look up at the window where faces loom so don't look up at the window i pushed you through night sight day blind all the pieces marked on the floor with sticks and stones and bones and open sores they told you don't go down there on your own they told you don't go down there all alone night sight day blind tomb with your finger write your name with your finger feel your shame down in the dirt with the centipede that grins this oubliette will make your marrow thin

Milk 06:16
i bled the sky then i watched the ocean die we are relics of a time when all the stars spit tongues of fire into the night all you sinners all you sinners on your backs oh how the spines just pour white light where the milk flows there wash my bones where the milk flows white wash my i bled the sky then i sucked the ocean dry

Berk 12:48
there's plastic wrapped around your thighs you've wire taps instead of eyes the serpents spit their tales of war the tubes they feed under your door your plastic potency you feed between the cracks strap all your enemies across your chest and back you arm yourself the payload burns from red to black your plastic potency you feed between the cracks with weapons raised above her head she comes to wake you from the dead subcutaneous injection public display of infection your plastic potency you feed between the cracks strap all your enemies across your chest and back you arm yourself the payload burns from red to black your plastic potency you feed between the cracks

Cortege 01:40
you tied me to the lightning tree you kissed my lips i couldn't breathe you touched my face you combed my hair when thunder came you left me there i must not walk into those waves where shallow depths are never safe i know those jaws they wait for me but where they swim i cannot see now sleep

Myra 16:05
this is the bottom pay no mind eye slits hollow gone are mine are we forgotten i don't care feel us crawling everywhere cast asunder as the sun goes under we were absorbed we were abhorred we were exhumed we were adored
7.
Mandrill 08:02
i fold myself around sightlines a sight betrays a sound four times wires cross wires four times sightlines four times i throw myself around sightlines a sight betrays a sound four times

Verdigris 07:16
just like the sound of the chainblade as it turns around and the buzzing humming humming buzzing of the blade he made us stay for the game for just one mistake now we'll never have another lover but the blade come here where we're where we have all been waiting under choked weeds seize we see without the feeling don't feel just need these why don't you ask the others sea green unseen my sisters and my brothers cast your nets cold and wet every eye is on the bower no fear down here now we are born cold embers conjoined maligned now we must sink or sever taste me the sea the nemertine surround you face down all drown and finally i found you

hear her whisper don't look into the waves break water wants to claim my name sirens seaweed her tendrils fill my throat choke suck out all the hope roam alone sharks and shipwrecks surrendering abyss mist distances and this is not salvation claim my name all the ocean wants to steal my breath all the ocean wants to here in those waves where all the tentacles fill my throat here in those waves we're all identical void of hope

Qaanaaq 02:15
a hole in the ceiling of the world they strip my brothers for meat grease-slicked mouths call out from the shore annual columns of muddy light spiders on the seabed
