Katimavik86 A really compelling release, it's easy to get swept away in the momentum. This is one I'll be returning to often. Highly recommended. Favorite track: Further into Nothingness.

Wxmaggot I'm normally not a fan of depressive black metal, but this ticks all the right boxes with me. Easy to get lost in and never loses momentum. Favorite track: Lurking within Twilight.

Vetrarnótt Definitely sad and desperate, as noticed in the album "There is no beauty left here...". This one is the one and only full-length created by only member Mort, passionate indeed by the darkest depths of DSBM, before the project's ending, according to Metal Archives. The music carries the weight of grim depressive feelings into what we think is a personal catharsis. Recommended for fans of the genre, in the Xasthur vein.

Jarak Not quite as amazing as TINBLH, but still damn good. Would probably make a great introduction to depressive black metal, for people who are fans of regular black metal.


Possibly one of the most anticipated debut albums for the past few months that has faced continuous delay. Despite not having any albums released until now, Exiled From Light is a project which has gained notiriety from many fans of the genre and anticipation for the debut Exiled From Light album has been growing steadily as the months passed. New Zealand's most prolific black metal musician Mort (Winds of Sorrow, When Mine Eyes Blacken) has created a mesmerizing, truly expressive piece of musical art in the form of an intelligent depressive-black metal album that feels both genuine and musically-accomplished. Six great tracks of pure melancholy spreading around 50 minutes of music, and released in a standard jewel-case with an 8 page booklet, this is highly recommended for all fans of Depressive Black Metal art!
