In my Shiver is an experimental black metal/shoegaze band from Camerino, Italy with conceptual themes about the loneliness and sadness of modern life, cityscapes, and a critique of the dominant culture. In 2009 In my Shiver released their debut album “Black Seasons” through Solitude and Despair Music in South Korea and now they present their follow-up album “Delicate Poison.” Combining oppressive and ferocious black metal with melancholic modern depressive rock, In My Shiver blends these sounds to create an unrelenting modern depressive classic with amazing riffs and melodies. In particular In my Shiver utilizes dissonant chord structures to create an uncomfortable and claustrophobic atmosphere and has a strong ability in using contrasts throughout the album which is only heightened by a professional sound quality, strong musicianship, and a diverse vocal performance. This album will appeal to fans of post-black metal, and 80’s rock/electronic music, and in particular fans of Katatonia, Solefald, and early-Ulver.
Small openings of light behind these grey monuments,
the fog heats our fatiguing breath.
You feel the frozen wind that it breaks the leaves,
I listen the noise, that turns him into an only voice.
An only river of minds sustained by tired bodies,
it is rady to complete their daily duty.
Difference is the problem, difference is absurd.
As if everybody are hidden behind a mask,
the day is turned as a dancing carnival,
the night becomes the saloon of the sin and the desires.
The apathy and the tiredness make us live without real objectives,
the colors and the lights delude us to live in a perfect world.
I look you, I am looking you, your look is closed,
look me, who I am? am I as you?
My eyes are closed, you are faded.
My eyes are closed, you don't have colors.
My eyes are closed, you don't have breath.
My eyes are closed, your view is closed.
Take my hand, you must believe in me,
I want save your destiny.
Delineate your conformation, you are anybody now.

PSA: if there was an album you heard a couple years ago and thought it was ok, listen to it again and you might love it.
That's what happened to me with this album. I cannot fathom why it didn't stick with me back then. Same thing happened with Decoherence's Unitarity for that matter. Matten
After listening to Ysyry Mollvün, listening to Downfall of Nur was urgent and turned out to be one of the best decisions I have made in quite some time: Umbras de Barbagia is simply magisterial; the atmosphere can hardly be compared to anything else. There is a deep, palpable connection to nature imbueing each very fibre of this record. The amalgamation of black metal and folk elements is done with a high intuition for detail and class, resulting in a highly immersive experience. Wonderful. David Fischer
