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.
In a surreal life
prepared to tell me your truth.
Your words perfume of egoism,
try to graze me.
Now everything is clearer, who you are, who I am.
Pulse now my desire of revenge,
my forgiveness will never embrace you.
Your mind has blinded from the success.
Looked at the mirror,
your soul is rotten.
Now your cards are on this black table,
you don't play anymore covered by false smiles,
look you, alone, unworthy.
Remember your last words,
the memory will make you suffer.
Your beautiful mask,
a daily mask,
you have never washed,
smell, smell of loneliness,
because alone you will extinguish.
My time goes on,
I am fierce of my loneliness,
I haven't compromise with your false world.
I dig in my memory and I am fierce,
fierce to have walked next to you but never with you.
Waves the flag of your life ,
when the lights will turn off you will cry.
I don't try hate, but only punishment,
punishment for your poverty.
You will cry for your poverty.
The choice has now been taken,
you embrace the world of lie.
My road is open,
my eyes are open.
I can now travel free
without your useless company.

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
