Null
« on: February 08, 2021, 05:20:11 PM »
So, Null showed up in my Release Radar on Spotify this week. They were towards the end of the playlist and I almost stopped before I got to them. I was about to click out when I thought..what the hell, give it a shot.


WOW! I'm glad I did. Holy shit, this is a great new album.

https://nullblackmetal.bandcamp.com/album/hiraeth


Hiraeth is a DOUBLE CD, as is their debut, 2019's Lore Of A Sleeping Forest.


I've been listening to Hiraeth for a couple of days now, and I'm amazed. Their sound is atmospheric, reflective, a little folky, black metal vocals (some cleans) that I can handle, and great compositions. The band gets nice and heavy too.

I don't know anything about them, but I ordered both double CDs from Bandcamp. I would've purchased the downloads but each CD comes with a booklet and I am interested in that.





Here's the title track:

Sounds good dude. I've added the new album to my '2021 releases' playlist  :metal

I'll hopefully report back before the day is through.

I still need to get to this album. I've listened to Lore of a Sleeping Forest and thought it was good. Hoping this one is just as good, if not better.  :metal

I listened to the first song. It is excellent musically, but shame about the growly vocals. I will check out more by them when I have the chance.

I sampled the first album when you pimped it Tim.  It sounded good, I'll have to make some time to check them out again.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who thought this was a thread made my mistake and with the word "null" meaning it should be deleted   :lol
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

This album is pretty good so far (I'm about 2/3rds of the way through) but I'm not sure how often I'd revisit this album, being that it's nearly 2 hours long!

I like to listen to albums all the way through the majority of the time, and this is quite an undertaking.

Listening now and I have to say, while I wasn't sure I'd appreciate how long the album is, it really is some fantastic, extremely melodic folk/black(ish) metal and there's enough variety of sounds and ideas to keep it interesting.

I'll give their first album a listen at some point too.

Thanks for the recommendation Tim!

Yet another almost illegible logo!  :) :)

I LOVED the intro to Hiraeth, and when the main riff came in at about 1:15, I was like "yeah, TAC!"    Then the vocals came in.  Nope.  Just can't do it.
