Put together around two of the finest releases of 2022: Unru’s Die Wiederkehr des Verdr​ä​ngten – a fine brand of blackened post-metal from Germany and Scarcity’s Aveilut – the product of  Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist and composer Brendon Randall-Myers (conductor of the Glenn Branca Ensemble since Branca’s passing in 2018) who wrote “Aveilut” while processing the sudden deaths of two people close to him, while surrounded by the overwhelming plague visuals of New York’s early Covid peak.
Vast contrasts in tones and dynamics, adding brilliance to the ever evolving beast that is the current state of evolution of experimental metal. It’s all in good hands.
