A few weeks ago, we released a Doom Metal collection under the Subarctic Nocturnes banner. As we stated at that time, it was meant to be the first of a three-part trilogy series of compilation albums that we would be releasing. Now, we present to you "Subarctic Nocturnes: Within the Ice[Volume II]", a collection of Black Metal and associated genres!

Within this volume, a few different variations of Black Metal is included. The start of the album includes more fast-paced, and aggressive Black Metal, while the end of the album includes more introspective and melancholic Post-Black Metal. It is not a perfect science to be sure, but an effort was made to make the songs flow as best as possible, which can be a challenge when including twelve different visions!

There is equal measures of new and old material included within, with a nice mixture of Hypnotic Dirge artists and associated guests. A french rendition of Celtic Frost`s 'A Dying God Coming into Human Flesh' is included from the French band Verlies, new material from netra presenting one of the most straight-forward Black Metal songs in the project's history, new demo material from Galaktik Cancer Squad, a reworked track from Epitimia, a track from Immortal Bird (ex. Woods of Ypres Drummer Rae's band), a track from Quebecois legends Sorcier des Glaces, introspective blackened metal from Harrow, and the album closer "Let me in" from the fantastic new Post-Black Metal band from Calgary, Numenorean. These, among others, are some of the pieces included in this collection.

lyrics

this nest reeks of disease
soaked with mites and fleas
this nest is a room you’ll never leave

beak dripping with bile
scavenge scraps of denial
refuse to settle in
sloughing feathers and skin

cryptic slaughterer
I know you fear me

cryptic slaughterer
I know you hear me

I’ll watch you decay
this is your debt, now repay
I’ll rip fragile skin, you’ll always be my prey

tumors ulcerate
languish and stagnate
sludge seeps from your pores
I’ll smile and wait

bending bones that splinter as you tremble

everything you dread
clasps its fingers ‘round your throat

spectre of greed
with a kiss so tender

self worshiper
stop praying

your avarice
earns you no pity

desecrate your vows
squander innocence
I would watch you burn
but that takes too much time
