Alta by Acolyte




Play on Napster
Label: Mordgrimm
Here are some black-metal rookies from Manchester, England, who actually manage some space, melody and roll, thanks mainly to a one-named guitarist named Chris whose relatively clean and exploratory tone splits the difference between loud shoegaze and blues-proggy classic rock. Also, singer JT isn't super-oppressive, and is occasionally almost comprehensible: "fear and loathing!," he seems to grumble once in "The Nameless Expanse" before turning into a crying toddler. Moods tend toward reflective repose as much as ogre anger, and the ebb and flow isn't totally amorphous -- though it's close.
